    I haven't heard anything new since it was first announced however long ago on STYD. I hope it's still happening.

    Unfortunely, since Noshame have gone under, the prospects of Torso getting a release anytime soon is unlikely.

    How is the AWE (Giallo Serien) version of Torso? Worth the money?

    See, I don't know the extent of Mya's affiliation with Noshame. I guess only time will tell. Hopefully they will contine where Noshame left off.

    Curious about this as well. I've yet to see the film but still would like too, can anyone tell me what the diffrences are between the Anchor Bay version and the import version? They seem to have diffrent running times with the American version being a bit longer but the import says it has a diffrent opening scene, anyone have any basis for comparison on the two?
     
  8. As a hardcore Slasher & Giallo fanatic, I've been dying to see this, but the long out of print Anchor Bay disc simply does for far too much for my monthly spending on there limits for me to warrent getting it. Even much more so then My Mother is a Werewolf and the first Slumber Party Massacre.

    So sad to hear the company that was gonna again re-issue it went under, as I would have snatched it up the first month of it's new release. Ah well ... *shrugs*

    Basically both are the same. Only some differences with the credits.

    The image quality of the AB disc was/is OK.

    See this comparison :

    I have the old, OOP, X-Rated DVD which is THE ONLY version with the daylight swamp chase. I'm still convinced that's the right way to watch it.It takes place in the early morning with the sun rising,which makes the fog appear.. So it has to be daylight.
    Also there's a similer chase at the beginning of Mannaja four years later, which is also during daylight. Might even be the same swamp.

    The AWE disc looks great, much better than the AB. It's anamorphic and has more extras. worth the $$

    It's R2,PAL and no English subs for the Italian dialog (which is only a few seconds though..)

    The Shameless disc could be a nice alternative:

    My advice is, if you really want it, buy the cheapest version you can get. There just has to be a R1 rerelease around the corner, don't you think?!
     
  14. I agree. I feel someone like BlueUnderground will surprise us soon; don't know why, but I'll simply hold out. It goes for a bit too much from 3rd party sellers on Amazon for me to purchase it for one of my monthly bulkl orders, so I'll simply wait ...

    Sweeeeeeet. So glad I held off on picking up an import. Stuff like this makes me happy because it reminds me that even though there isn't the huge abundance of new (old) italian, giallo, etc. films for me to see anymore, there's still a few here and there that I need to pick up. I'll have this on release date.
