I'm usually the
first guy to assume that a blurry, hazy transfer is pulled from a Digibeta... Hellraiser II just isn't one of them. It's crap, make no mistake, but unlike several titles I've seen in the last couple years (Battle Royale, Zombie Holocaust, Versus) there's multiple things you can point out from review/comparison sites where even PAL resolution would choke.
This is in no way appears to be a good
BD presentation, but it's what exists, and I don't think anyone else is going to step up to the plate and make a transfer that matches the first film for quite some time.
That said, Image brought this shitestorm on themselves for releasing The Hills Have Eyes
upscaled. You just can't do
that and then expect even the people who want your product to trust you...
