"Mother, this cloth smells of death!",
This review is from: Burial Ground [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
I have always enjoyed this zombie film. Another favourtite of mine. I really like the look of the zombies and the music. I have also have to mention the beautiful Mariangela Giordano and Michael the son of Mirangela played by the legendary Peter Bark.
I think Peter plays his character good who has thing about his mother. I like some of the classic lines in this film. like "Mother, this cloth smells of death!" and "What's wrong? I'm your son!". Some of the gore effects of course now look fake and dated, but this was pretty low budget film and i think the effects mostly look good.
Picture quality: 3.5/5
I think it looks good compared to my old Shriek Show DVD. It does have some problems. Like the Chroma noise. It has random little pixels of red, green, blue and so on. It`s not supposed to be there. It`s an error/artifact. I am sure there is some actual film grain also mixed in with the Chroma noise.
Despite, it looks better than my DVD. Some good details and the gore and blood looks better. Also think this film was restored too dark. It does have some minor and not so minor black crush, due to it being too dark. The DVD actually was the right opposite, it was too bright. Seems like they can`t get it just right.
Audio quality: 4/5
The DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 dual Mono mix actually was good. The music and some surprisingly bass from the pistols. I don`t remember anything wrong with it.

just remember though the blu-ray is cut - the dvd isnt and it looks more natural without the noise that you also have noticed

I know it's missing some footage, but it doesn't bother me at all. I think the Blu-ray is better than the DVD, despite the noise problems. I would rather watch a mediocre Blu-ray than a lousy DVD. Here is a Blu-ray/DVD comparison you can look at: http://wtf-film.com/site/2011/08/20/buria
