Posted July 21, 2014 02:34 PM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryWarner Bros. Home Entertainment is re-releasing director Neil Jordan's Interview with the Vampire on Blu-ray in celebration of the film's 20th anniversary.

No mention of a remastered transfer? The old release it's pretty much an upscale, and I'm afraid they are recycling that now.

I Love this movie since the first time I saw it, and considering that I never been fond of the Original Poster I reckon it is an improvement... I keep my finger crossed for a Steelbook Edition (and of course for a remastering of the movie itself, I read it was not the best one could get, even though I am not the best person with whom you discuss a technical presentation in details)

Nice, and let's hope that we'll eventually see Neil Jordan's 'The Crying Game', which was announced for blu release a few years ago in the U.K., but then mysteriously cancelled ...

I do hope this is remastered. I've been looking to upgrade my DVD but didn't want to do it with the current BD that is out there now.

it could use a remaster. But damn that cover is just awful. Why not use the theatrical poster like they did on the old release instead of this crap here

Warner Brothers are really pushin the limits when it comes to double dippin with only the "double" part and no juicy "dippin". If this is another re-packaging + new amateur photoshop editon cover + 1 new extra..I must say that Warner Brothers you're customers know that you're screwing them!

The original BD back in 2008 wasn't up to snuff even then, murky looking, low bitrate, weak contrast and poor delineation. It's freakin 2014!

Companies like Criterion, Arrow, BFI and Eureka give us beautiful catalog video trasfers from fresh scans in either 2k or 4k, one relase after another. Even big companies like Sony, Paramount and Fox treat their catalog releases with more respect, not only trying to squeeze as much dollars and cents as possible out of movie fans.


Warner I'm tellin you, people are gettin fed up.

The old Blu-ray only had lossy Dolby Digital. The DVD had better sound with a DTS mix.

While the current edition isn't upconverted, I'd have to echo everyone else in that this'll be extremely disappointing, if after all these years since the original BD (since the film was mastered for the original dvd release for that matter), and for the films 20th anniversary, they still couldn't muster giving the movie itself its due. I sold my original BD after watching it, knowing WB could do better and expecting they would. If this is more of their status quo it'll remain absent from our collection. WB's HD mastering has significantly improved now that they've lightened up on the filtering they used to do for dvd. The nature of this films photography demands their best effort for a HD release.

Definitely getting if its a new master. Original bd is awful quality. 'Hissy' audio and a 'smeary' visual means I've only watched it once. Dvd actually looks better. Loving the new artwork too.

Bought the 1st release day 1 and was disappointed by the picture quality. I was told by other Blu-ray.com forum members that the lighting used during the film was to blame and it would probably never look any better. If that's true, I see no reason to double dip.

I've held off all this time from buying one of my favorite movies due to lossy audio. I hope my patience is rewarded. The cover is horrible, but that (and only that) can be forgiven.

This is great news! One of my all-time favorite movies (enjoyed the books as well) and I was not impressed with the first Blu-ray release of this film. It deserves better treatment this time around.

Great movie. I pray it's newly remastered or, forget it. Because the PQ of the first release is mediocre at best. BTW, I love this new cover. And surprised most hate it.

Does anybody out there have he phone number of WB ? So I can tell them to fire the marketing chief with his, or hers Cover art.
Please WB use original art covers. Its one bad cover after cover. Remember Vacation?

Old release was reviewed here with a 4/5 for PQ. It did get a bad review for the lossy audio. So, far the re-relase has only 1 new feature.
It will be interesting to see if the re-release gets lossless audio & to read about the comparative PQ if it is remastered. I'm not planing to upgrade my old BD.

Thank You Dannalexcon," I couldn't have said it better myself.

Now that we've seen re-releases with "Remastering" such as Enter the Dragon, The Fugitive, Patton, Predator, Rocky, Robocop, The Terminator, and Wall Street, just to name a few, I've been really interested to see a "Remastered" version of current and future catalog titles from all the studios.

Including...

48 Hrs., Above the Law, Clear and Present Danger, Die Hard 2: Die Harder, Die Hard with A Vengeance, Dirty Dancing, The Dirty Dozen, Edward Scissorhands, Fletch, Footloose (1984), Gremlins, Grumpy Old Men, Grumpier Old Men, The Jewel of the Nile, Lethal Weapon 1 & 2, Major League, Mission: Impossible 1 & 2, National Lampoon's Vacation / European Vacation, Out for Justice, Patriot Games, Romancing the Stone, The Silence of the Lambs, Sleepy Hollow, Superman: The Movie, Superman II, Tommy Boy, True Romance, Under Siege, and believe it or not, Wayne's World.

Just to name a few.

They better give it a new master.

The cover on this anniversary edition is not as good as the original release. I don't know why Warner Bros. loves white background covers with washed out characters. They do this for almost all the new collections. James Dean, Clint Eastwood, etc... it needs to stop. It doesn't make releases look or feel "deluxe" or whatever they're aiming at.
