I've still got the MM disc in its wrapping... Don't think I'll double dip though.

Is the actor on the left the one who plays the lawyer in The cynic the rat and the fist?

Indeed it is! It's Marco Guglielmi (http://www.pollanetsquad.it/attore.asp?cod_att=595).  :P

So what's the opinions on the grabs? I'm swaying towards the NEW transfer mainly for the added detail, though I can see some folks preferring the darker Mondo Macabro version...

When I scrolled through them from the top down I preferred the MM grabs. However, going from bottom to the top I thought the NEW looked better.

Funny how things like that work out.

That's a hard one, some of the darker shots look better on some of the grabs and vice versa imo.

I didn't do a comparison to the MM disc for the simply reason that I've never seen it. Judging by the screenshot, I'm leaning in favor of the NEW disc. The darker look of the MM disc may be more approapriate in certain scenes but the NEW disc is clearly superior in picture number 3 for example. It's a tough choice overall, though.

I like the darker MM grabs myself.  I bought that disc when it was released in 2004.

Nice review, Johan. :'(

agreed, i think pic 3 is the only pic that does look better though.

I haven't got the film so when i get round to getting it i will get whatever one is cheaper as it's not obvious what one is truly better.

It's hard to decide for certain but the grab that made my mind up is this one, as mentioned before.

The 'see through' ghostly effect is so much better in the NEW transfer.

Thanks for the screens, I'm happy with my MM disc. I think the NEW one looks too bright.

Likewise. The MM print might have less definition in some scenes but it has bags more atmosphere, which is more important IMO.

I've seen the MM disc for as little as $10.00. I picked up a copy a couple years ago at Best Buy for $13.00. What's the special features on the NEW release? The MM has deleted and alternate scenes and a good sized stills and poster gallery. Pierre Brice, from the WINNETOU films is in this, too.

I just received the Neo Publishing DVD in the mail and didn't know much about it or the movie in general. I also didn't know the picture quality was pretty crappy (the shifting of colours/brightness is something i really hate in movies), for instance. Not that it's too bad to look at, but I expected better.

Looks promising otherwise, though (really loved the first shots of the fields and the water) and will probably watch it tonight.

Got it from amazon.fr marketplace, by the way. EUR 9,10 incl. shipping. I will see if it was worth it.  :-X

The new French disc looks way too bright and the colours appear to rather wishy-washy. Better definition though…

Watched it earlier. The outside shots were indeed very nice and gloomy but there were far too few of them and nothing really went on there anyway. Almost everything took place inside, mostly in the mill, and that just looked like a typical (and boring) gothic horror set. Didn't care much for the story either, but I am also not a fan of this type of movies.

what disc do you mean exactly?

without having put a lot of effort into finding out which one that exactly is, could you enlighten me please? which release is being reviewed there?

I have both MM and the European Hardbox DVD and I'm still not happy.

We need some loving care given to this title on BD.

I bet this would look fantastic on Blu if taken from the negative…
