Rating for 'Deluxe Edition' DVD only.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Satanic Rites of Dracula [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
WARNING! The so-called 'deluxe edition' is basically a bare bones release of the film (in widescreen) with a second disc of music 'inspired by...' And the music on disc 2 is immature metal rubbish, by the way.
The film itself gets a rating of 3 stars. It's an underrated and solid enough entry into the Dracula series.

It's not widescreen as this reviewer wrongly states. It's a 4:3 aspect ratio with a widescreen image squashed into the centre of it. That means you have to zoom your TV to get a widescreen image along with the resulting loss of picture quality. An absolutely rubbish bit of disc authoring.

I haven't seen this in a while, but I think you're right! Thanks for correcting me there. I suppose the 'plus' is that it is - at least - in widescreen, but the picture quality is pretty cheap looking as I remember. Rumour has it that a new edition is being released, but I wouldn't hold your breath. Sadly, it'll have to make do!
