    I am a bit disappointed. They should have left the option to watch the movie with or without the scenes like on the "My Bloody Valentine" Blu.

    Yes,that would have been nice.Of course,not having seen the quality of the deleted scenes,it's hard to say.They might have been too choppy to cut smoothly back into the film.Guess we'll know when the disc streets.

    I really don't see why they can't just include the option to watch the movie with or without these scenes and I also don't get why most discs that have deleted, cut, or alternate scenes don't have the option to watch them as part of the movie if this stuff is going to be on the disc anyway. imo these scenes just seem pointless on their own because they're usually a bore to watch outside of the context of the movie regardless of their content. It also seems to me that any label that isn't doing this isn't taking full advantage of the medium and isn't providing the best possible product. That said I will probably not be buying The Nesting unless they include an option to watch the extra footage as part of the movie and it looks like they aren't going to do this. I don't care if the extra footage is VHS quality and in 4:3, we should be able to watch the full movie without ripping and re-editing the disc! Some people will take quality over completeness and others will take completeness over quality and I can understand both points of view but this is a pretty trivial point seeing as how they have the technical capability to appease everyone so long as they have the footage.

    Plus, then they can slap one of those "TWO FILMS FOR THE PRICE OF ONE!!!!" tags on the front cover. Gotta love truth in advertising.

    ^ While I agree that we should at least have the option, watching the uncut version of My Bloody Valentine made me sad.

    The movie looks pristine, but the additional footage looks rough. The change in image quality was a little jarring. It was a bummer to think that the uncut footage would have looked just as pristine if the MPAA weren't such assholes.

    One of the worst examples of this was Anchor Bay's Silent Night, Deadly Night disc. Though all of the uncut footage from that one was the same as my VHS.

    I'll probably buy Torso since I've been on a roll buying all the BU BD releases...
    However, I haven't seen this film and almost all the reviews I've read refer to it as boring and nearly bloodless. Now, there is no requirement that a horror film, especially a giallo, be gory to be "good" but it doesn't hurt. ;) I'm more concerned, however, about the multitude of reviews that indicate that the picture plods until the last 20 or so minutes. What do you folks think?

    Torso is an excellent film, one of my favorites. Very excited to see this in HD. I really hope this sells some copies for BU so we keep getting more euro films released on blu.

    I don't like the cover artwork. To me it's boring and very Photoshop-like. I would much more prefer that one:

    Yup, want more Fulci.

    Hope we don´t have to wait until December for Zombie.

    Contamination and Conquest would be nice as well ;)

    Plus, would be nice if Blue-Underground began to release at least 2 movies per month like in the good old DVD days around 2001-2005 ;)

    No kidding. I hope it gets released by October at the latest. That's a long enough wait for me.

    And I'd love the Blind Dead films on Blu-ray. Hope those come sooner rather than later.
