    There are only two releases of this film.Both PAL.
    The Marketing and the X-Rated edition.
    Both discs are identical but I like the X-Rated packaging better.
    But if it's the movie you want and nothing more,get the cheapest one.

    Funny thing is when I ordered the Marketing DVD (which was the cheapest at that time) I got the X-Rated one :)
    And since it's ltd. to 666 pcs and has a better cover,I'm not complaining :D (seems to be OOP now)

    Marketing I got for 5.99€, is quite a soft transfer, but overall satisfying

    I have the marketing disc. The transfer is a bit muddy but its still very watchable. Great movie!

    Great film.

    The Marketing Film DVD is worth a purchase and can be found rather easily.

    I like the X-Rated disc (love their packaging) and it seems to be pretty tough to find these days.

    Okay, so with so many companies specializing in Italian horror/giallo (Raro, Scorpion, Severin)... why is Eyeball STILL not available from somebody in Region 1??

    One answer: $$
    The rights to these films are pretty expensive nowadays. A company investing in one of these movies must be sure to sell a certain amount of units. With this being a niche market and the better known films already out there, they simply choose not to.

    Or so I've heard...

    From Midnight Legacy's, distributor of Alien 2, Facebook page:
    These releases are selling in the low hundreds now. Unless you want to pay Criterion prices or more, it's just not cost effective to produce.

    I can understand the money argument, but still. Someone can release Body Puzzle on DVD, yet not Eyeball... a movie that is infinitely more well-known and loved in the Euro-horror fanbase? I hadn't even heard of Body Puzzle until the recent Raro release. Of course, in Body Puzzle's case, it had been released two times before on DVD already so maybe that's a bad example.

    I just want Eyeball on DVD. Such an underrated giallo. :(

    Somebody really wealthy with nothing to lose needs to put these films out there.
