5.0 out of 5 stars Raro get it right this time, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After the unforgivable quality of Raro's "Nightmare City" that quite frankly looks no better than an old dvd, I waited for the reviews before even considering this one ... It got good reviews and quite rightly ... What a great filmic representation of a really good giallo ... Its probably only known by giallo fans but in fact this is really a really great 70s thriller ... Well worth the money for anyone into gialli or just after a good thriller ... Lets hope Raro give us some more rarities in this sort of quality

1.0 out of 5 stars Get Real, 7 April 2014
No need to read the book ... He's had no life yet ... And he ain't no great shakes as an actor so he ain't gonna be around long enough to write anything interesting
What a joke

1.0 out of 5 stars AWFUL BLU RAY OF A GREAT CHEEZY FUN FILM, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
How Raro have got away with this I don't know ... Arrow apparently are putting it out here in Britain ... Hopefully in a new transfer ... Raro have thrown this up and it sis so obvious that they haven't even done a hi def transfer and used whatever they used for the dvd ... THE PICTURE QUALITY ON THIS THING IS NOWHERE NEAR AS GOOD AS A GOOD MODERN DVD AND IS ONLY FRACTIONALLY BETTER THAN THE OLD DVD ... A total waste of money ... If Arrow do it I would advise making sure they have done a new transfer before even considering ordering it ... As for this its a complete waste of time ... Get the old dvd if you haven't got the film as its just as good quality

1.0 out of 5 stars An truely terrible transfer of a wonderful film, 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whip and the Body is my favorite Bava film ... Its positively operatic in its gothic melodrama ... And so rich in colour and texture ... Well at least the film is ... This atrocity is both faded ( in regards colour ) and hideously dark so that none of the detail is visible in the whole film ... Don't misunderstand me ... The detail is there in the bright parts of the picture but as we all know Bava is full of colour and shadows ... And there's none here
Even Novenka and Katia's horse ride to the beach looks as if it is late late evening and nearly dark !!! ... Farcical ... Awful transfer ... Probably done by the same people who did Bava's Block Sunday for Kino as it has the same problem of being much worse than the dvd
Lets hope someone has the sense to do right by this classic and release a transfer done by someone who hasn't got serious eyesight problems and knows the film he is transfering

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT HARRYHOUSEN, 10 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is not the Ray Harryhousen "Mysterious Island" but some awful 2000 modern american tv version ... So don't be fooled into thinking otherwise although I notice they have removed the cast list from the cover image to mislead people

1.0 out of 5 stars Mac users beware ... Worst piece of kit I ever bought, 17 Sept. 2013
This thing is built to work with microsoft pcs not Macs ... If you are a mac user it is a right botch and isn't worth the bother ... The software is ridiculously unreliable and not user friendly at all ... God knows who developed this thing and how it is still being sold ...The picture quality leaves a lot to be desired as it tends to inherently cut any depth from the image and boost the contrast ... Not pleasing at all on the eyes

1.0 out of 5 stars SERIOUSLY !!! Over rated, 30 Jun. 2013
This review is from: The Innkeepers [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
This is one of the worst films I've seen lately ... And lets be honest there's some seriously bad horror films around at the moment ... This I couldn't even call a horror film because most of it is a ( lack of ) character piece about 2 really insipid and uninteresting people ... There is a jump scare ... That really is all that can be said for this flaccid piece of junk

2.0 out of 5 stars Good picture quality ... Crap film, 6 Jan. 2013
This and the equally awful Amer purport to be homages to the great pop period of Italian cinema from the 60s to early 80s
Amer at least had some basic understanding of the meaning of giallo ... This has exactly zero to do with gialli ... It is just a film set around a british audio engineer being hired to work on an italian modern gothic ( obviously based on Suspiria ) in the 1970s
This totally pedestrian little exercise if film cluelessness fails to offer one frame of the visual flare of said film of 40 years ago ... It goes on and on and gets nowhere ... I thought it had finished 3 times ... But no ... On and on it went and still went nowhere
There was a 15 second interesting bit of visuals at the first of these "oh for gods sake be over" points ... But quite frankly give me a day on photoshop and premiere and even I could knock that up
Never heard of the director and certainly won't be searching any more of his work out ... Watch some real Italian cult stuff from the heyday rather than waste your time on this drivel ... But for those that do it will be a once watch ... There's nothing here to come back to
Picture quality is fine ... But what does that matter when the film is complete dross

1.0 out of 5 stars Bye Bye Arrow ?, 18 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'd say, after all these problems with earlier realeases and then the complete pigs ear that they made of "The Beyond" ( the messed up versions are still being sold rather than the re-do's ) ... Now the hidious cropped version that they have done of "Bird with the Crystal Plumage" ... Its going to be ByeBye Arrow I'd think ... And through their own stupidity, arrogance and laziness
