Review

The video improves in the expected areas - more grain, brighter, a little tighter and far less artifacts... value here is unrivaled for what is being offered. You get 2 versions of, debatably, the scariest film ever made - looking and sounding top shelf, with hours of supplements including three commentaries. Circumstance demands we give this our strongest thumbs up! - 5/5
