Classic Horror Trilogy on Blu-ray
, October 14, 2008
This review is from: The Omen Collection [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is one of my all time favorite horror series. All three movies look and sound better than I have ever seen. The original Omen comes loaded with extra features on Blu-ray. Omen 2 and 3 however have nothing extra on them that did not appear on the DVD editions. This was a little disappointing for me. At least they could have thrown in a trivia track or something. The Omen remake is the same exact disc that was previously released on Blu. My one BIG complaint about this set would have to be the packaging. Considering the price of the set, it comes packaged in a very shoddily made box. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be "Earth Friendly" by not using any plastic housing for the discs, but Fox seriously dropped the ball on the packaging. The outer case has very cool artwork, but it is not sturdy at all. The movies are housed on a fold out inner jacket where each movie is simply held in place with a foam rubber hub. There is no booklet or anything else. Not only is the box cheaply constructed, it is also waaaay too big for a Blu-ray. It is about the size of a regular DVD, which causes it to really stick out amongst the rest of my collection.
Bottom Line: If you love the Omen series as much as I, you won't be disappointed with the actual movies. However, be warned that the packaging is really not in keeping with other sets in this price range (e.g. The Matrix, The Godfather)
