Tattoo, 1981 - BLU-Ray - Scream Factory - Scheduled Release Date:  July 14, 2020

Bruce Dern and Maud Adams.


A tattoo artist becomes obsessed with what he thinks is the perfect "canvas" for his artistry.

A twisted tale that has been unavailable for a long time.  Didn't think it would ever get released again during this era of the "me too" movement.  (Bet this one draws a few critical protests.)


Too early for extras.

I hope they get the AR right, this time! The IMDb says the original AR was 1.66:1. The one in the Universal 8 movie BD set says 1.78:1 and the R2 BD says 1.85:1.

Scream is listing it as "Various".  Looks like there will be more than one choice - doesn't say what they are, yet.

Why would you need more than the correct one?

Probably because the theaters used more than one.  Like the Universal Sci-fi movies that were shown in both 1.85:1 and 2.00:1 when they were initially released.

I'm guessing the 1.66 British format was shown in American theaters with a 1.85 mask.

I'm just talking about DVDs, though. Use the AR that the filmmakers wanted it to be shown at. I know, people get all upset if they have to look at black bars. OMG, just shoot me if I have to look at a black bar!

SHOUT says that they are working with a new transfer of the film.

Invisible Man, The, 2020 - BLU-Ray, Universal - Scheduled Release Date - May 26, 2020

       Also available in 4K.


It's The Invisible Man;  it's Universal; it's in color; it's in stereo!  But..., it doesn't have Claude Rains.

I know some of you weren't thrilled by this movie.  But, if you weren't looking for an updated re-telling of the 1933 classic, would you still think it was a stinker?  What if it were made by Warner Bros. and peddled as a straight thriller with touches of sci-fi elements?  Would you still dislike it?


     Special features

     -Includes Blu-ray, DVD and a digital copy of The Invisible Man (2020) (Subject to expiration. Go to NBCUCodes.com for details.)
     -Deleted Scenes
     -Moss Manifested
     -Director's Journey with Leigh Whannell
     -The Players
     -Timeless Terror
     -Feature Commentary with Writer/Director Leigh Whannell



I'm glad it's out on BLU-Ray.  I don't go to theaters - haven't in many years.
