    Shriek Show has actually done the unthinkable and shipped their product out early. This is confirmed by them - they sent out screeners and the like last week.

    Their distribution seems to be improving - let's see how their quality compares when the discs finally arrive.

    Ah thanks for that one rhett,totally missed it :eek: .Went straight to the thread after I found it...
    If you don't mind I'll read it after I've seen the movie.
    This is one of those movies I actually managed to know nothing about (on purpose!) :D.

    That's crazy you haven't seen it, man. You are Horrordvds' giallo master, and yet you haven't seen one of the greats. That is amazing restraint to have not seen it until now. I forsee you uncontrollably ejaculating once you witness the first frame of this Fulci masterwork. That or have a heart attack. RIP

    I've yet to see also. Glad I waited, and will be able to see it now in it's full great glory.

    Who would have thought that MB would do it right?!?!

    Watched it today.
    It's a (really) great Giallo but I expected a bit more.Due to all the comments and praise it got in the last couple of years I suppose.
    Still it's one hell of a trippy...ehm...trip.
    I can easily say it's one of Fulci's best and I know I'll revisited this one often.

    I won't go into details but buy it now!

    Sounds intriguing--I never upgraded after the fist shriekshow release as after that I acquired a near perfect CD-R that combined a few versions really well, but I would like a final official version-although part of me thinks at this point I'll hold out for blu-ray....

    That is indeed some awesome cover art. Never got around to seeing this one, but I think I'll pick this release up. Love Fulci.

    yeah, after the mishmash of versions that shriek show put out, i avoided picking it up since neither one seemed "definitive". it would be great if this one had a good transfer in the OAR, with some solid supplements.

    Exactly right Crystal--but i jsut had a hard time buying the title again from the same company so soon after they had put out another version and were not offering any break, etc to those who bought the 1st one....

    I wish this was coming out on blu. I would definitely double dip. This to me is a great giallo and one of Fulci's best films.
