    Sounds like they didn't screw up the disc compression this time around, cause the transfer has nothing to do with them since it's the same one from the Ascot-Elite Blu-ray.

    :D I wouldn't be surprised if even the low rent faculty Band relied upon finally said, "Chuck ol' boy, even we don't do things that way anymore!"

    "After the cover before the devil's possessed, this is the diary of a nymphomane of Jesus Franco who will be released at the same time in June. For this title we have removed some small white dots and other pétouilles. The copy is tip top.
    And we give you news of the soavi soon!
    Avoid kissing your screen. It wouldn't hurt her at work."

    Drives me nuts that DVD Drive-In hardly ever posts screenshots with their reviews. Regardless, I have both on order.

    Agree. If there's issues it would be nice to SEE that. I'm getting both regardless.

    While slightly off topic it is related to Jess Franco on Blu, but legendary European/Swiss exploitation producer/pioneer and founder of Ascot Elite Erwin C. Dietrich passed away earlier this month (March 15th to be exact). Dietrich was responsible for producing 14 Franco films in the mid to late '70s starting with Franco's infamous WIP flick Frauengefängnis (aka Barbed Wire Dolls) (1975) [a personal favourite of mine]. Dietrich was originally appalled by the final product when he first saw Barbed Wire Dolls since it was not technically polished like most of the output the company produced and shots slid in and out of focus, but apparently the worst offence was that Franco and crew couldn't even pull the weeds and grass out of the walls from the location they shot for the prison! But Franco convinced Dietrich that this would sell and play on the theatrical market, and did it ever! It was a hit for Dietrich and would lead to a period that was one of Franco's most creative and daring as Dietrich gave him complete freedom - both a blessing and a curse for Dietrich as that meant Franco would occasional shoot multiple films at the same time without telling his producer(s). RIP Erwin.

    Slightly off-topic: Strange Attractor said vol. 2 of the special edition of Thrower's Franco book is looking more like an early Autumn release.
