Tried watching the Blu-ray the other night but couldn't manage it due to the picture quality. Wasn't terrible but I was expecting better and was a bit taken aback at how soft it all looked. I'll revisit at some point but must say I'm a bit disappointed.

It sounded like they used the same elements as Warners old DVD instead of a proper restoration from scratch. I understand they're not loaded but Dracula looks loads better so it's possible to make it look great as well I'm sure. Still, at least it has the eyeball scene.
