    According to Fangoria's Chopping list both will be released by Anchor Bay on the 25th of September:
    Also on the same day:
    Sure,we knew these were coming but now we have a date for it.
    I think I'll buy BU's "Cat O' Nine Tails" to compare it to my barebones Dutch release.

    Very very nice. :glasses:

    If the Suspiria disc is a significant upgrade, I'll double dip.

    I just picked up Demons 2 for ten bucks not too long ago because I'd never seen it. I held out on the first though and am looking forward to a new, hopefully uncut, transfer.

    Great news. I had two copies of DEMONS 2 that had some nasty pixelation in many scenes. I've never owned a copy since 2000. Would be nice to finally have this again...only I hope they don't issue the same discs!

    The BU rereleases are exactly the same as the old AB releases.
    This particular disc is without the CD that came with the Ltd.Ed.

    I knew that, but with the upcoming double-disc of the Stendhal Syndrome from BU, I was hoping that there would be some new material for Suspriria. :(

    According to Bloody-Disgusting.com, the transfers will be new.
     
  10. New transfers of Demons?!?!? Wicked coolness.

    I still have my Dario Argento Vol. 2 featuring Demons 1 & 2 (despite Argento not directing these). It looks so cool having that oversized DVD case on my shelf!

    I never popped in my Demons 2 disc (and got a little worried after reading the pixelation issues. Gonna have to watch these soon to make sure they still function.

    No one said it was the AB edition that pixelated.

    I had two new copies of DEMONS 2 that pixelated. However...only one review on the internet that I know of made mention of it. I gave up. It was otherwise very nice and sharp. I have the LD's at least for now :)

    Which part is pixelated?

    I think I had a problem with my Demons 2 disc as well, but I've only watched it once so I might be making this up.

    I feel that it fucked up when the female counterpart of the main couple was being attacked by the tiny screeching demon in her apartment.

    The ones I had (I sent the first one back and got a replacement with the exact same problem), went all blocky only for a split second. Can't remember where exactly it was but I seem to remember it was a closeup of the knife used to cut the birthday cake or something.

    That is where one of mine went into a "spiral" pixelation and completely froze. The other part on both of my discs was during the opening "chef" sequence (my mouth still waters in that part) and when George is walking to the building.
    But...mine was prolly isolated...but I did get the same results on 3 different machines.
    I think I'll pull out the lasers tonight and chill with some wine and cake (my birthday is Monday but I'll be hardpressed to find a cake like Sally's :D ).

    Yeah, I might pick up Demons and Demons 2 if they have anything new as I already have both. Have the rest of the movies that BU is reissuing as well. When are the reissues of Tenebre and Phenomena coming out!? Those are the two that I need and have been desperately waiting on!
