    Won't shock me if they suck...their service levels in store pretty much blows goats...the only reason I used them is because I have gift cards to use. So I am kinda looking at this one $11 order as a test...hopefully they won't suck too horribly.

    Finally got this at BB the other day and wow, did it bore me to tears. It didn't help that my disc was defective and I couldn 't watch the whole thing but goddamn is it slow. The scenes with Anthrofuckface were cool, but too far and few. And the audio sucked ass.

    Can anyone elaborate on the audio problem? Is it too quiet or too distorted or what?

    The audio is very low and muffled. Check out the beginning with the chic swimming in the ocean. It sounds like she's in a bathtub.

    I felt the same way when I saw it. It didn't live up to the hype.

    Tis stinky methinks. Some good gore scenes, but unfortunately, the added material and seeing it in it's "full uncut glory" didn't exactly change my mind about it from the first time I watched it back in the 80's on tape.
     
  11. There's only German DVD releases of ABSURD, but all of them are from the same print. It's strange but the two acceptable releases (the both by Astro Records and Laser Paradise) haven't the same picture quality. In my opinion the best release is the DVD by Laser Paradise (in the so-called "Blood Edition"). On the "eatmybrains" website you read the DVD is cut. That's correct, unfortunately. But the cut scenes (just dialogues) are included in the special features. It's hard to find this DVD, because out of print. Therefore I hope for a better release from Italy or US.

    By the way I made a comparison of the two DVDs on the Wicked-Vision website, but about the German law forced me/us to "protect the children" against this kind of movies, so we deals the comparisons with login to persons over 18 years. Perhaps I will seperatley the pictures to show them in this forum. Watch out, guys!

    And... sorry for my bad English, I am just German and the co-webmaster of the Antropophagus fan-page. :D

  13. Yeah, Udo, my account was activated for a few days - better late than never. ;) But now I has to sleep, because in a few hours I'll sit in a movie theatre for the next experience of the secretly "Filmclub Buio Omega". See you later!

    I remember renting ABSURD in a video store back in the late 1980's but I don't remember what it was called (maybe ABSURD or maybe an alt title) nor do I remember the video label that released it but it looked like a real VHS release ... no a bootleg.

    I seem to remember liking it but remember little about it except for George Eastman being blind and trying to find the blind girl but of course she had the upper hand having been blind for a while ...

    I got and watch Anthropophagus last night. Honestly, I don't know how it's made it onto so many people's top 10 lists or whatever, with all due respect. It was ok with a great twist (hehe) at the end, but it seemed kind of pedestrian. D'Amato's Buio Omega is much, much better.
    The documentary on disc 2 was OK though I fell asleep eventually. I don't know why they couldnt have it all on one disc. It's not like it was a blatant excuse to charge more (10.99 at BB!) Most of the trailers looked like direct to video crap.

    I'm surprised you guys didn't already know this one was a bit of a turkey. I want it due to its reputation, but honestly, I'm expecting nothing but cheese.

    Yeah, I mentioned earlier how bad this movie was, but couldn't explain why I wanted it so much. 80% of the film is a boring mess with too many walking around scenes, but you gotta admit, how Anthro-ass-face goes out is classic!
