      I love those photos. I hope there's an alternate reality somewhere that got that movie instead. That's not to say I don't like the movie as it is, I do, in fact I love it. But those promo images really fuel my imagination.

        I have the Australian release and it's pretty dissapointing in terms of the colors, it's too dark which is part of the problem, with fleshtones so unrealistic as to be a constant distraction for me.
        After watching the BD I compared it to the Anchor Bay DVD then realized the BD was worse off than I initially thought.
        It's crisp and clear as a bell though ( except for one short but crucial bit that looks very dupey ). Studio Canal goofed this transfer up and Hammer just seems to be handing over what they recieved.
        It's the same source seen on the DVD version Millenium released, so if you have seen that you know what to expect. The Rigby commentary is good ( not above average but OK ) and the other extras are quite nice, but once again, a far from definitve release. This one is going to raise a chorus remnicent of the DRACULA color debacle when more people see it in January I'd wager.
        Here is a review that is a bit more positive:

          If the screen caps at that link are from the film something has went radically wrong.

          Another Hammer classic falls victim to revisionist color timing.

          I'll pass.
