    Sounds pretty cool. Now if only Anchor Bay could give this a Blu treatment for US.

    If you order from Amazon UK it should come out to around $17 plus shipping. The disc is region free.

    50 minute doc? nice. looks like i'll add this to my argento/arrow collection. the missing english audio is a surprise, though. i know deep red has always had that on dvd, but i don't remember that being the case with phenomena. it's been a while since i watched it though. am i just forgetting it? or is this a new cut?

    when i recently ordered bay of blood, deep red, and inferno, it came out to $22 CAD each, AFTER shipping/taxes. thats a pretty fantastic price. i don't know why anyone interested in these movies would be reluctant to pick these up, provided they're impressed with the specs and extras.

    This is the longer Italian cut. It includes about 6 minutes of additional footage, but the English audio for these scenes was either lost or never recorded.

    Correct, the Arrow blu-ray will contain the longer 116 minute version. Both Anchor Bay DVDs clocked in at about 110 minutes.

    Hey Demoni, I don't really care if you link my screen caps, but a link back or mention of some sort is always nice.

    Probably my least favorite Argento, outside of his recent output, which clearly isn't anywhere near the level of the work he did in his prime.

    I could name many Argento films I'd rather see on blu first but this does sound like it is a pretty solid offering.

    Looks like they cranked up some bad DNR on this release - some of those shots look like water paintings. What's unfortunate is that there are grain reduction filters out there that don't produce these kind of effects. Hope it looks alright in motion.

    Just edited my post.

    Sorry if you took it the wrong way.
    I always post the screencaps but forget to provide the link for the site that houses them.

    Already have that review disc?

    Guess they cleared out the rights for the commentary.
