Well I have been following this Dracula issue for some time now, and after the "Dracula climbing down the wall pix was posted" here is my view on the whole issue;
The 3 HD versions have the same color timing and it is way off compared to the DVD versions and the 35mm version, witch I just saw again at a private screening here in Denmark!
Detail vise the 3 HD versions almost look the same and that also goes for their black levels.
When you put that info together, then it certainly looks like the 3 HD versions was taken from the EXACT same master
And if that is the case then, then the master would be a bit old, would it not ?
And then again, that would make the info about this being a whole new transfer with all new color corrections wrong, would it not ?
Well I am, especially after seeing the 35mm print again, even though it was a bit worn, very disappointed with the way Dracula looks on Blu-Ray
And I think it is a shame that Zoetrope and Sony does not pay more attention to the Blu-Ray's that they release, and try to pass old HD broadcast masters to us consumers as brand new High Deff releases
