    Anybody else watched their Silver Bullet Blu yet? Am I the only one seeing white noise all over the place? It's really distracting. I tried changing the settings on my TV to minimize it, but it doesn't seem to work...

    Some scenes look great. The scene with all the werewolves in the church looks beautiful, crystal clear. But the scene immediately before, in the fog, is almost impossible to watch. What the fuck is going on?

    That really sucks! I passed on the German release, but bought this one from Umbrella. Haven't received it yet in the mail. Was it that bad overall?

    It seemed to come and go for the first 30 minutes or so, up until the scene in the fog that I mentioned, which was the worst. Then it seemed to go away. I didn't really notice it again for the rest of the film. I even skipped back to that scene to see if I was imagining it, and there it was. So I dunno what the deal is. I was able to enjoy the rest of it. But I'm curious to hear some other opinions.

    Is it a encoding thing or film stock thing?

    I watched mine last night, but didn't really observe any issues like what you've described. I'm pretty sure Umbrella used the same StudioCanal master that Koch used for the German release.

    Is this the scene in question?: http://caps-a-holic.com/c.php?go=1&a=0&d1=10959&d2=10960&s1=107155&s2=107146&i=4&l=0

    Yeah, that's the scene. I tried watching it on a different tv, and there was no problem. So I went back to the first tv and it was still there. But with some even more aggressive tinkering with the settings, I was able to make it go away. Mostly. Cranking down the contrast and sharpness helped a lot (although they weren't too high to begin with). If anyone is game, try boosting the contrast and sharpness during either the fog scene or the greenhouse scene. I'd be curious to know if you get the same effect. All I know is that these settings worked fine for every other title I've watched. So I still think there's something funky about the disc.

    I contacted Umbrella on Facebook, and gave them all the details, including a picture I took of my tv during one of the scenes in the fog. They said they would pass it on to their production team.
