Poor Transfer: Curse of Bigfoot/Cathy's Curse

"This review is for the Alpha dvd edition which pairs "Curse of Bigfoot" and "Cathy's Curse". I purchased this for my cult favorite "Curse of Bigfoot".
The transfer for "Curse of Bigfoot" is absolutely horrendous, obviously having been transferred from a videotape in far worse condition than my old "Goodtimes" EP-speed vhs tape, which almost looks vibrant by comparison.
The picture in this Alpha edition is washed-out, with the features of the characters' faces in medium-range shots even rendered practically without distinction.
Yes, "Curse of Bigfoot" may be a "bad" movie, but Alpha's poorly executed, incompetent edition makes the picture completely intolerable. Even campy movies deserve better treatment.
If one wishes to experience this movie for the first time, pass on this and go for an old videotape instead.
Perhaps other readers can comment on the quality of the PR Studios edition currently on sale here.
