I honestly haven't ever seen this movie. I saw another movie called Halloween, but I found out it isn't this one. Is it kind of like Black Christmas? If so I'm sure I will love it.

Halloween is the blueprint for all slasher films. Horror at it's purest.

I'm beginning to wonder - after this print of Halloween and the new Dracula - does Blu-ray have something against the color blue? I mean, blue seems like a nice enough color to me. If the DP was OK with it, I think we should allow it in our houses, even if just for 2 hours.

I will stick with the new Halloween for the increased detail and over-saturate it a bit on my monitor, but why should I have to? The blue night scenes were the way the movie was made - that's the way I want to see it at home too.

I saw the film in 1978 and remember it vividly. The night scenes were not that saturated in blue. The print on BD and the print shown on Monsters HD is the best yet to the original presentation.

The cundey approved and supervised transfer was done in 1999 and NOT done in HD. Therefore, since he had NO involvement with this, (supposedly the HD transfer done a few years back that was used for the divimax dvd) the best they could do is try and tweak the new transfer to match the old Cundey one.
In the day scenes, (which on the divimax seem VERY green, and spring-like, not fall-like at all) it seems they got it pretty close to the Cundey approved transfer. On the night scenes in question, they didn't. Many like the way Cundey made certain scenes VERY blue for the older DVD. He WAS the DP, you know.
