    I really like this one, it's my 3rd favorite Fulci, beaten out only by City of the Living Dead and New York Ripper. It's all about the awesome gore/death scenes, combine that with a great score and Bob and you've got a really fun film in my opinion.

    I love the scene with
    Freudstein holding Bob's head against the door while his father is chopping it down with an axe.
    I think that's one of Fulci's best moments.

    There's some extra footage on the AB disc of HBTC. In the scene when Bob goes down the basement for the second time, he sees the pair of glowing eyes while hearing some kind of breathing (probably Dr Freudstein's). The eyes disappear, Bob turns around and sees them again. This happens once more and then he screams.
    On the Diamond DVD, when Bob sees the eyes he screams immediately, so there're a few seconds of footage missing. The same thing applies to an old vhs copy of Hbtc which i have.
    Does anybody know if the EC Ultrabit edition has the scene intact? :banana:

    I remember me reading that the scene you mention is not in the Ultrabit edition, but I can't remember the site.
