Title: Cut-Throats Nine (Joaquín Luis Romero Marchent, 1972)
Post by: Ben Cobb on 11 Jun 2008 - 22:03
Does anybody know how the German disc compares to the Eurovista DVD?
Here's a link to the German one:

The Eurovista DVD is a bootleg so I'm definitely interested in picking up the German release but I'd be interested to hear from someone who has a copy of it first.

Here's some grabs from the Eurovista release...

I believe the german disc is a bootleg too (at least according to a spaghetti-western.net it is). I don't know about the picture quality though. Maybe they use same print as Eurovista. At least they use the same cover pic which is even not from this film.

I'll stick with my Eurovista disc then for now, to be honest the quality ain't that bad really. So I'm happy.

Yeah the griminess of the dvd sort of suits the movie. I was wondering if that explosion at the end is meant to be in sync with the audio?

Would be great IF "Another World" could pick this up for an official release..... ::)

It would certainly suit their profile....Ah, the hell: I just want to SEE THIS! :) :) :) ;)

Saw it tonight, the print was a bit faded (moreso than the various home video releases, including the Eurovista disc) but totally intact, and sure enough, the audio was out-of-sync for that last reel, but it somehow works for me given the film's flash-back/freeze-frame style.

Attendance was sparse-ish (BADAZZ MOFO's David Walker was there, probably the second U.S. 'zine critic after Steve Puchalski to write favorably about the film back in the 90's), and despite some respectfully quiet riffing, C9 really worked these folks over. Two choice quotes overheard: "The flashbacks were great, I just didn't understand them!" and "Well, THAT was uplifting!".

Also, the audio was CRANKED in the auditorium, which definitely made for a more oppressive viewing experience.

Later this month: DOCTOR BUTCHER, MD!

Code Red just announced a DVD for this streeting August 16th. 
The extras they wanted failed to pan out but an upgrade of this one would be mot welcome.

The last reel of the US version was always out-of-sync,Code Red have tried to fix the problem.
There was some talk of 2 audio tracks (original with out-of-sync part) and fixed but don't know if this will be the case.

Hmmm thats odd ... why would they include the out-of-sync track if there will be a fixed one ? Is there anyone who likes out of sync dialoge  ;D

It's not certain it will be included but there's always people who want the "original theatrical version".  :D

The guy behind Coode Red is overly sensitive to forum based bitching, and felt if he offered only the corrected audio track, than 'purists' would scream bloody murder.
It seems all the English prints share this defect, so CR's fixed track will be most welcome to my ears.

Looks like Code Red did a good job. Can´t wait to receive my copy.  ::)

"It’s anamorphic in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio, and fully uncut. The picture is very sharp with nice detail, and the color restoration is not oversaturated but stable. There is minor speckling at the reel changes of the source print, but the image is fairly clean throughout most of the entire feature. The English-dubbed mono audio is also good shape"

"CUT-THROATS NINE was once available as a limited edition non-anamorphic DVD from an independent label called Eurovista, but Code Red’s new presentation (also transferred from a 35mm print source), is definitely an improvement. It’s anamorphic in a 1.78:1 aspect ratio, and fully uncut. The picture is very sharp with nice detail, and the color restoration is not oversaturated but stable. There is minor speckling at the reel changes of the source print, but the image is fairly clean throughout most of the entire feature. The English-dubbed mono audio is also good shape"

... yeah, what this guy says.  :D

Got mine today too  ::)  I assume it is suppose to read "Neigh-mare"? ....... Sorry, I deserve one of these:  :(

Hadn't read anything about the disc before ordering and was hoping against hope for a two-discer or double sided disc, but doubtless it will still look better than I've seen it before anyway.

They didn't include it in the end, which is fine by me.  ::)
Picture quality while not perfect is FAR better than I have ever seen Cut-Throats Nine before.

Saw this classic last night at Night Visions Film Festival. The copy was 35mm and was in pretty good shape.

I had read about this film years ago I now finally I saw it and loved every minute of it! It was brilliant and surprisingly brutal. This is as good as any spaghetti western definitely. Hopefully Spanish western genre has more of these gems!

Hopefully Diabolik or Screen Archives will stock the new blu ray. As ever with Code Red, they don't seem to have done anything new for this release, but I'll take a PQ upgrade.
