Disapointing lacking release...
on 14 August 2014
This at first glance promises to be an exciting little release however you soon realise it is not worth its price tag
Both films ate presented in high definition, however both films are completely unrestored, the first film being the worst affected, there are several moments when the grainy images on screen seem to wash over the entire picture and whomever colour timed this release ought to be shot
The audio is fairly clear bur drops out ay certain points, sometimes sounding a little dull, in both cases audio is mono only
The booklet contains a number of images taken during the film, though not all are represents, infact more than 150 of the lobby cards are absent, and the ones present are cropped, else you need break apart the booklet merely to see them in their entirety
from the dvd is the other trailer for the first film, lacking a photo gallery, which would have been a pretty standard and worthwhile addition
Plastered on both DVDs is the Arrow company logo and colours, distracting start up sequence and completely unwarranted addition
There are numerous interviews on both DVDs and booklet, however not from anyone actually involved with this film, and the mark gatiss interview is confusing and repulsive in its addition here...
There is also an interview on the second disk with victoria price, skipping over the film entirely, infact she completely brushes it aside at one point, followed by a diatribe of how she is overly critical of her fathers performance and how she is trying to make money from his other works by "branding" Vincent Price
There are No alternative language tracks for either feature, something present on all previous dvd releases
The second film seems the greater in terms of picture quality
I am unsure why the arrow logo colours are plastered jarringly on these dvd nenus, as though if these releases were their frontispiece then surely they would have made a much better job at representing themselves
If you can pick up thus dvd then by all means do so, but do not do yourself an injustice, pay no more Than £12
