New Day of the Dead Blu-ray arriving in Japan...

.
It's doubtful, but maybe this Blu-ray, debuting September 4th from Happinet Pictures, will rectify the underwhelming picture quality of both the prior Anchor Bay/Starz and Arrow Video Blu-rays. The tech specs and supplements (mostly) seem to match the Starz BD which might be an ominous sign...

  • English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 & Dolby Surround 2.0 (w/ optional Japanese subtitles)

The official press release states the transfer is from the "highest quality HD master available", so we'll see...

Unfortunately, I've heard it's the same rather weak transfer seen on the Anchor Bay and Arrow Video Blu-rays...

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
