Is there a decent looking DVD of this one available?

The Alpha dvd (as TERROR CREATURES FROM THE GRAVE) is the only one I`m aware of, that`s what I have and it actually looks decent. There`s a thread at Latarnia where it`s said the Something Weird vhs and dvd-r has some nudity that was cut from the US release print - and is not on the dvd, but the runtime is shorter than the Alpha. Sinister Cinema`s dvd-r is the same as the Alpha I believe.

That`s Alpha from Oldies.com not Alfa/Luminous btw, in case anyone was wondering.

I wouldn't call the DVD decent but its widescreen (the film was shot by Woody Allen's former cinematographer of choice Carlo Di Palma).  An early Video Watchdog article detailed the differences between the gorier TERROR CREATURES FROM THE GRAVE, the UK CEMETERY OF THE LIVING DEAD, and (if I recall correctly) the French FIVE GRAVES FOR A MEDIUM.

I've just scanned in this excellent piece by Alan Upchurch (RIP) from issue 7 (Sep/Oct 1991) of Video Watchdog:
