DVD TRANSFER **
This is my first Mario Bava movie and I was amazed how much I enjoyed it! I am a big Argento fan so naturally I didn't bat an eyelid at the very obvious dubbing.
This movie is full of amazing scenery, from colours, shadows,cobwebs, old dark mansions...but best of all, it has for me a really inrteresting and original storyline.
I love the Hammer movies but watching this, I found myself wishing if only they had been as visually good as this. I was creeped out a few times, the scenes with Melissa are truly nerve-shattering at times!
Next up, I have Black Sunday and Bay Of Blood waiting to be delivered. If they are anything as good as this little gem, I won't be dissapointed!
The only gripe I have is the goddam awful transfer on the Dead Of Night release I bought. Very graint, sometimes blurry - looks like a straight VHS to DVD transfer to me. Can anybody tell me the best quality version that's available for this film? I read somewhere the anchor bay edition from the Bava boxset is supposed to be a lot better? Any info would be welcomed!
