    Yeah, it sounds like it might be wiser to wait, I'm sure NoShame or Blue Underground will pick this title up sooner or later...

    Here's a new review:

    This and the screenshots are enough for me to know I'll wait for a better release.
    Gialli on DVD seem hot these days,so another company might pick it up soon.

    By a company named Eyecatcher (a daughter of NEW from Germany?)
    This is the uncut version,Anamorphic 2.35:1,with both English and Italian language options.
    Also English subs available!
    Probably the same print as the Italian DVD.

    Now my Giallo collection is really getting completed bit by bit :banana:
    My Giallo nerve is twitching again!

    Watched it last night. A nice but mediocre thriller / Giallo. Some twists but too much talk IMO. Still it was very stylish and perhaps I'll have to watch it again to appreciate this one more.
    Helmut Berger (Beast With a Gun) steals the show here.

    I watched the Eyecatcher release which probably is a bootleg so I hope another release will surface in the future.
    Recommended to Giallo completists only I'm afraid.

    Revisiting this one some time ago indeed made me appreciate it more. Actually, it's very nice Giallo, and the talking isn't as bad as I pointed out earlier.
    One question though, why do men in Italian films always have to run like girls? Is it the shoes? :lol: Nah, just kidding.. sorta.

    Picked this up last year and I gotta say I also enjoyed the movie a lot more the second time I watched it as well. The first time around I thought it as just OK because found myself a little bored with parts of it but, surprisingly, this was not the case the second time.

    I have a boot leg video of this. Extremely talky and very boring. While the film is a visual treat it sucks.

    Good luck. I couldn't find any online. The only one I found on an auction site, went for € 60 (which is around $80)

    It's OK. Perhaps one shows up at eBay. I'm glad I have mine :D
    Still, this is a grey market release, so a legit release (English friendly) might surface. Don't pay too much for it. Experience learns you'll regret it.
    RARO US is planning another Tessari thriller (Death steps in the Dark), so it could just be they are trying to acquire the rights for the US (Medusa released both uncut in Europe)

    I only recently found out Helmut Berger is gay. That might explain it! :)
    He was a really handsome man in those days. Perfect as Dorian Gray (as he fancied both men and women)

    I'm glad now that I never purchased this on DVD. Not really a fan of that cover art though.

    It's Arrow though, so original artwork on the other side.
