Well, our plan right now is this: we will make a brand-new transfer from the original Italian negative. We can't tell as of now what scenes it will contain, but probably, if any cuts were made, this footage might also be still in the lab (which was the case with SO SWEET, SO DEAD). We will check this out and try to make the most complete cut out of what's there in terms of original elements. This will go on the first disc. The second disc will contain what we call the "Frankenstein Version" and will be bastard cut of all the scenes that can't be found in the Italian version with the Italian version as the basis since it will have the best quality, of course.

So far we could only locate VHS tapes of various other cuts. We would prefer to transfer 16 or 35mm prints of the other cuts but so far we couldn't dig up ANY. Not even the German version with the crazy additional footage filmed only for that release.

So if you are or know collectors, please help us out with any information you can provide. We try to make the best version possible out of what's more or less a lost film. It's our biggest endeavor so far, and we can use all the help we can get. This is a true fan project, and we already got a lot of help behind the scenes, especially from members of this forum. Thanks so much, guys!

Oh, before I forget, the additional scenes can not only be viewed in the Frankenstein cut, but also separately in a deleted scenes section. So you won't have to see the movie all over again to watch that footage.

The first finished extra for THE SEDUCERS (TOP SENSATION) is an animated photo novel just like the one on our SO SWEET, SO DEAD disc.

I could probably translate all the text in the photo novel if you want... shoot me a pm if you're interested. i doubt it would take very long and it looks like it would be quite easy to replace the text and make it look exactly the same.

As always, it's looking like a great release!

Thanks so much for the offer, but it's already translated! Funny thing is, there are as many subtitles for the novel as there are for the average feature film.

We will check this out and try to make the most complete cut out of what's there in terms of original elements. This will go on the first disc.

The Italian print is pretty much a "clothed" version of the film (same as the Spanish). One of the many differences between the Italian & Spanish versions compared to the stronger English dubbed version is that Edwige & Rosalba are wearing shiny red & black panties while sunbathing on the yacht. In the English dub, they are completely naked.
Just my opinion but I think that the majority of fans will want to see the 'harder' version of the film i.e. the stronger English export version retitled The Seducers (which of course also has the goat scene fully intact).
I should also note that the music in the English version during the 3-way lesbian scene is brilliant and is much more effective than the music in the Italian & Spanish versions. If there was any way that the English audio/soundtrack could be included (and resynched) this would be amazing.

Yes, they have the German version. Plus the Spanish version and the Jerry Gross (US version) All of varying quality but they have them non the less.
