    I like this film, its fun and full of cool looking stuff made all the better on HD DVD.
    The clarity of the movie is apparent, but what comes out even more now is the colors, and of course the awesome soundtrack. Whoa !!
    The scenes in the revival chamber with sparks flying and colorful electrical shock waves going all about is jaw dropping.
    Good stuff.

    I've been on the fence with picking this one up. I have the SD which is pretty painful to watch. Looks like I'll have to upgrade.

    HD won't make this any less painful to watch...

    Gotcha... :)

    Oh and I agree...even though I SORTA enjoyed the movie at the theater..I don't think I'd have the patience to sit through it again.

    I have the uber edition DVD that came with the old 30s horror flix (dracula, frankenstein, wolfman) as special features but I don't know that I would watch it again and I wouldn't buy it if I did.

    This is a movie that grew on me. The first time I watched it, I thought "what a dud!". But after the 2nd viewing, I really enjoy it.

    Like many, this is a film that you with like or dont. Not much in between. I like action fantasies and this is one of those.
    Naw no nudity but for some reason she does wear heels throughout the film. I guess it helps her run faster.

    There are some nude evil vampire chicks that are build more like Ken than Barbie but what the heck.

    I really like when the baby vampires explode everywhere. Who is gonna clean all that up ?? Not Dracula. Some very bad parenting in this film. :wink:

    Now I know Peter absolutely can not stand this movie but like some of those here I find myself oddly drawn in and found myself very much enjoying this modern Universal Horror Movie. Franky, Drac, The Wolf man and even a little taste of Mr Hyde.

    Was it the best written movie ever? No but somehow it took me back to the old B&Ws from Creature Feature and I liked it.

    It was entertaining enough that I didn't turn it off, but that's about the biggest compliment I can give it.

    I'd have to agree, but if I ever upgrade to HD I'll be picking this one up, as my wife likes the movie a lot.

    I pretty much couldn't stand this movie, and I generally like the popcorn stuff. Unfortunately it's one of my wife's favorite movies. :)

    Funny, I just finished watching this stinker last night. I only agreed to watch it again because it was HD... :) My wife will watch anything with Hugh Jackman in it. Great HD transfer, though. Still didn't fix the awful script/accents.

    I agree. I think the only reason people watch this film and the others like it(Underworld) is because of Kate. Personally she does nothing for me.
