Dark Night of the Scarecrow (1981) Blu-ray:
1. There's a 5.1 mix on this along with the original mono and I'm happy to report a reasonable amount of discrete surround activity and some decent LFE. Surprising considering that it was probably constructed from mono. Way better than many other modern action movies that should be full of discrete surround activity.
2. A fun, TV movie that takes some unexpected turns.

Just received this fantastic box set today [Northern Exposure 15 BD~V discs/Audio DD 2.0/Surround] and am blown away by the quality. Back in the early 90's, the resolution was 480p and this was definitely shot on 35mm film. Also the DD 2.0 audio is surprisingly robust ..... certainly better than 90's broadcast TV audio As for the series.......one of the best shows of the 90's and still relevant today!
