So you think I should get it than guys?
I just finished watching Door Into Darkness recently and really enjoyed every story. I didn't really expect too much from them, as they were from TV, but I think they're pretty solid stories... you can do a lot worse as far as anthologies go.
It's easy to say yes because I bought it.
But if you're slightly interested in Argento (and a bit of Cozzi thrown in) this could be of interest to you.
It's great to see the progression between his debut,this and Profondo Rosso.
Plus this was his first collaboration with Giorgio Gaslini (Profondo Rosso).
Cozzi's interview bits are great too.
yes you should buy,and it may go out of stock at exploited at anytime,i have to hurry up and buy a copy too.
Totally forgot about this one. This one will most definately be purchased in Switzerland, where I am going TOMORROW! Ah just had to share
If I read it right this series wil get an Italian release in the second half or near the end of 2007:
I wonder if it'll be any better than the german disc.
Don't think it will have subs though.
I think the German disc is fine.
They were shot back in the 70's for TV, so you can't expect film like video quality.
Righto,here it is peeps:
Could anybody who has the disc,post some screengrabs?I read somewhere that the image quality of the MYA disc is better.Dunno,possibly the same source but boosted/sharpened/edge enhanced?
I'll stick with the German disc.A very nice set (pity it isn't numbered..).
I DL'd Eyewitness and The Tram a few weeks back, not knowing this was coming out. Good stuff! I ordered the DVD from Deepdiscount this week. Cheapest price on the web. Can't wait to get it.
EDIT: I just got shipping confirmation!! YEAH!
DVD Drive-In review: http://www.dvddrive-in.com/reviews/a-d/doorintodarknes73.htm
I've never owned the German set, so I have no idea how it compares. As mentioned in the DVDDrive-In review above, it states at the beginning of every episode that the original film elements no longer exist and the transfers come from the existing TV video masters.
Here's some more screen shots from the new R1 set:
Episode 1: The Neighbour
Episode 2: The Tram
Episode 3: Eyewitness
Episode 4: The Doll
Thank.I'll try to make some screenshots from the German disc tonight.
To me the image quality looks quite the same.
Although I certainly will be getting this, I wonder why the price is so damn high for a TV master? Or did they restore it to what it looks like to the best they could?
What do you call "too damn high" ?
Deep Discount has it for $20.Not too much for 2 disc:
I dunno, I live in a world where I get great 2-disc editions for $5.
Obviously I'm not saying it should be $5, I'm just saying it's pretty high for something that looks like plain Jane TV. I'll end up buying it, but I wonder if the price will turn off a lot of people considering.
I grabbed it for just under $18 on Buy.com. It's about the same price at DVD Pacific...who never shipped my pre-order, thus I cancelled it from there.
Amazon has this priced at $27, I do think that's kind of steep but it is cheaper elsewhere as others have already mentioned. Still though, I think I paid about $40 or $50 for the Dragon release (I don't know if this was a good or bad price, it was probably high, but I bought the only one I could find...) when it was new so it's a relatively good deal even at $27, to me anyway. Unless this new one looks a lot better or something I'm going to pass, haven't even watched the one I already have...
It is pricey based on what most of us are used to nowadays. Shoot, I pay under $5 for most DVDs used. For this kind of "specialty" DVD with a very limited market, it isn't an unfair price. The company that makes it, probably doesn't make a lot of money, since the market for this product is very small. We're lucky to be getting it at all. Same with the Four Flies DVD that is coming out. There are a lot of people looking forward to that release, but it is still a very small percentage of the DVD buying populace and it isn't one that will sell to the casual buyers. I got Doors into Darkness for $20 and change shipped and I was very much okay with paying that price.
I DL'd the 2 Argento stories a couple of months back and they aren't bad, but if I wasn't an Argento completist, I wouldn't bother. I already bought the German DVD of Four Flies and the way my budget is lately, that will have to do for now. With Doors, the only DVD I won't have is Five Days of Milan, although I have DL'd a DVD ISO of that one and burned it as well as made a custom cover for it. There is a R2 DVD of it, but it is in Italian with no subs, so I'm not willing to pay for it, that is why the DL'd version will have to do. I would love to have an official release with subs, R1 or R2, so I can have a complete Argento collection.
