They better release this movie proper.
A change from 2:35 to 1:85 would not prvent me from buying this movie - as long as the transfer was good.
This movie should be in 2.35:1 and it would be a shame to fuck it up with incorrect framing. Is there another release of this film on R2 or something so that we can compare?
i don't think there is any other release anywhere.
Prove to me it is 2.35:1
If you can show me Jason25 or anyone else I will go back to the producers and try and get it corrected. They say it is 1.85:1, please show me a tape or DVD with another ratio...any help is appreciated.
It would seem weird that it would be 1:85 when most of his movies at that time were shot 2:35. But if thats what they said then hopefully its correct. Is the DVD going to be two discs, becuase the price is alittle higher than the other releases.
Re: Prove to me it is 2.35:1
Will do. Might take a few days but I'll get you definitive proof that it is indeed 2.35:1
I always assumed it was shot 2.35:1, considering it was shot in the early 70's. Also, IMDB lists it as 2.35:1, but they're not the most reliable source.
Then again, the producers should know better than anyone.
BLASTER this is from you.
In BEYOND TERROR - THE definite book on Fulci, there are spanish ads for the film. Apparently, when the film was released in Spain it was screened from specially printed 70mm prints - that's only possible with scope ratios as far as I know (if I'm wrong, someone could correct me).
Also, the greek tape is so HORRIBLY pan&scan that just by looking at it, it proves that this is indeed a scope film.
I will bring up the 70mm issue with them...This is a good reason to think it may be 2:35.1
Wasn't it blown up to 70mm from 35mm?
IMDb states this film was shot in Techniscope (35mm).
I assume that Techniscope is only 2,35:1.
If the movie was actually shot this way, it may appear during closing credits... What do you think?
I think Techniscope is 2:35.1; I'll ask my film teacher to see if he knows.
Well, according to my teacher, Tecniscope should be 2.35:1 (doesn't know for sure, but is 90% sure.) It was a very popular framing style in Europe back in the days, kind of similar to PanaVision in the 'States.
My advise to blaster is look for a 2.35:1 print somewhere, or better yet, the original negative (wishful thinking, I know.)
I really want to know how this problem is being dealt with. LIZARD is my most anticipated disc at the moment and I'd be extremely pissed off if it was put out in the wrong aspect ratio.
me too:nervous: :nervous:
Found this link about Techniscope: http://www.simplyweb.net/piranha/
According to this source, it seems that Techniscope can only be 2,35:1.
I think we still have to check on closing credits if the movie was actually shot through this technology. Because IMDb could be wrong (it happened before, and will happen again...).
Thanks Dorian, the link was very helpful.
Blaster, PLLLEASE do this the right way!
