I'm curious to see how the transfer looks. As I recall the DVD was very drab -- possibly intentionally, given the nature of the film.

Brutal movie at times but a guilty pleasure. (Thank gods the dog killing was off screen) If you thought you saw Jennifer Jason Leigh in all her glory in Fast Times..... eek Oh, and a great score of course!
