Anchor Bay is known for putting out horror films, like 'Halloween' & 'Dawn of the Dead.'

Isn't this old news? I remember hearing about this a week ago. Yay, just like every other small studio supporting a format.

Anchor Bay is a huge piece of the puzzle. Their horror catalogue is very extensive, which is a definite blow to HD DVD.

Uh oh...

Guess I had better start another thread on why I should stick with HD DVD.

I'm doomed...

Hopefully the masters are in good condition. For some reason, I just don't think the Evil Dead master has been properly preserved. Just a thought, though.

Halloween sounds exciting, though, as long as it handles the darkness well. I've seen a few night-intensive transfers that really poorly handle it.

You're right. Alot of these movies are low budget and I imagine I will wait for reviews on alot of Starz horror releases to see how well the PQ will look. (I'm not expecting DTS HD-MA sound because of how old the movies are)

As far as Halloween is concerned, I think the last Anchor Bay release had the an alternate color timing compared to the other releases so I hope they either remaster that or at least use a different master than the last release.
