Can anyone please confirm the original aspect ratio of Death Laid An Egg? I believe it to be 1.85:1 but there are some sources claiming 2.35:1 The framing and credits look designed for 1.85:1 in my opinion. I have an Italian language VHS - part of the Thriller Erotico All'Italiana Collezione - which looks to be 1.78:1 - the opening credits are cropped. I've got an English language bootleg tape somewhere here but haven't found it to check it yet - think it's 1.85:1 though. Just wondering after I snapped up the Japanese disc on ebay (£15) earlier today.

Are there plans for this to be released in the US or is it another one of these films bogged down in legal problems? Or have I missed the boat and one exists already?

Blue Underground had planned to release it, but it never happened.

Read an interview with Bill Lustig who said the Italian owners were asking way too much money for the rights to the film. He said that, in light of poor genre sales at the moment, Blue Underground would have lost a bundle on it. Simple economics.

Am I on my own here or does anybody else not think too much of the film?

Just received a fan composite of this today, anyone know who did this one?  The scenes deleted from the Japanese DVD are included as extras and taken from the German VHS release in German language only.  I am not sure if they have been edited back into the film though.  If they haven't I might have a go at doing it over the Christmas break.  Here are some screenshots from the DVD:

Good find Oli, never knew that any deleted scenes existed. I've read about speculation as to whether there was ever a longer version than the one on Japanese DVD but no one has ever come up with any proof. Seems you've found it  :'(

Be great to hear what the extra footage is like. Keep us posted will you.

They are nothing significant, mainly dialogue scenes but it will be interesting to see whether they add anything to the film.

Are you planning on doing English subs for the German dialogue?
