THIS REVIEW IS FOR DARK NIGHT OF THE SCARECROW ON BLU-RAY!
If you have read the synopsis for the movie on any of the dvd reviews you will know DNOS is an atmospheric made-for-tv chiller about a mentally handicapped young man who is mistakenly blamed for a young girls death and is murdered by a gang of redneck vigilantes with a grudge against the poor chap. Of course Bubba comes back for vengence in one of the origional and still the best killer scarecrow movie ever made.
Ok, this isnt a review of the film so much as the VCI blu-ray, I agree with all the other reviewers that dark night is an excellent little movie and well worth anybodys time.
The big question is though, 'if I own the dvd already is their any point in upgrading to blu-ray?'
the answer is a resounding YES!.
For starters the picture quality is better, its not a massive leap forward admittedly but its clear vci did a proper job putting it on blu-ray rather than just upscaling their dvd and the image is definately sharper and the colors slightly richer than the dvd looks upscaled through my ps3. Extras wise we get a collectors booklet thrown in as well as some other new extras including a production commentary, a q&a with larry drake, tanya crowe and j.d. feigelson, a broadcast promo and a behind the scenes photo gallery. All on top of the extras already found on the dvd.
Like the dvd, the blu-ray is totally region-free and plays on my ps3 with no problems at all. This one is definately worth the upgrade.
