I loved the remake so I'm really pumped about seeing the original which everyone says is much better. Crossing my fingers for region free status.

I'll get it if it has English subtitles...........
I almost bought the version awhile back, but found out it had no English subtitles.

I also liked the remake, but still have not seen the original.

Ummm RED. I don't EVER remember this hitting HD DVD.

I really hope this has Lossless. It's not worth buying if not. I'm sorry but the soundtrack is so subtle it deserves Lossless. Hopefully it'll be DTS-MA since the soundtrack was DTS, recorded in that format.

edit: Ahhh it looks like the company that bought Tartan may be keeping the same label. The cover is the same as I remember before which listed including TrueHD as WELL as DTS-MA. To be honest I was worried the company that bought them would try to screw us out of Lossless. It looks like this isn't happening though.

I'll be all over it if it's region free and decent.

The U.S. remake of "A Tale of Two Sisters" used the name "The Uninvited" and there is a Japanese HD DVD of another Korean film also called "The Uninvited", but that's a whole different movie.

Never seen the U.S. remake but I'll probably buy this. Had a Korean DVD of it already though and liked it to some extent. I'm more excited about Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance though

It states subtitles right in the title description.

"A Tale Of Two Sisters: Subtitled/Korean: Hmv Exclusive"

I'm assuming since it's the UK release and the coverart is shown on their site as well that this means Korean DTS-HD MA & Dolby TrueHD with English subtitles.

Buy it! This movie is great. One of my favorite, if not my favorite Korean horror movie.
My favorite Korean movie is likely "My Sassy Girl".

Got mine today. It's region B locked as commented in various places.

Video is 1080i60 for some reason. Korean DTS-HD MA and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio tracks and optional English subs. I can see some interlace lines in PowerDVD 7.3 (it doesn't probably handle 1080i content very well). PQ looks to be on fairly soft side but colors look nice. Not sure how the original film would look like.

Behind the scenes extra is in 480i, Korean audio and English subs, 23m:55s.

I can only imagine how great the sound is. The sound design for this movie is so great. Listen to it in DTS as that's how they recorded it, or at least I remembered seeing THAT in the details of production on imdb.com/ .
Oh and I'm hesitating on buying this. I like my stuff already in 1080p and I doubt the movie was shot at 60 FPS.
edit: By the way kannisto. Apparently a Korean Drama hit Blu-ray in Japan but it's very expensive, see a little over $700 on the site I was looking at. Maybe it's a limited print.
