Didn't she only do one or two days work on the film? That makes it understandable that she has no real recollection of it.

Yes indeed and by all accounts Reeves worked her like mad to get his money's worth.  ::)

I read the book a while back. Very interesting and well written, in-depth. Worth shelling out the money for..

Yeah, I've read it. Very in depth as Mook says. There's also a US book about Reeves. I read them both one after the other. The UK book is better but the US book is worth a read too.

I have the Mterodome release, but this new DVD looks interesting. I love the idea of frustrated old age wanting to express itself through young flesh, it's quite a bold and daring statement. Plus the fact it stars the peerless Boris Karloff. What's not to like? There's more layers to this movie than first perceived. You need to see this several times to fully appreciate it.

I'd also recommend seeking out Targets.

This version will probably be more affordable and easier to get than the French one.

What are the specs on the EMS release? The monitor I'm on here at work is knackered so I can't really judge those grabs, though the EMS one looks brighter..

Anamorphic widescreen 1.85:1, German audio, English audio (with forced German subtitles). Yes it's definitely brighter, but the colours look slightly more faded.

German DVD also has the alternate "nude" Whipping Scene from the Beginning as an Extra.

plus it comes in a nice slipcase like all the discs of the series "der phantastische film". Insinde there's an amaray with a different artwork and a booklet, though this is in German only.
Image quality isn't excellent - mostly too soft, but acceptable. zero extras, except for the trailer and image gallery. there are some additional trailers for other e-m-s-dvds, including "blood and black lace", "Die Schlangengrube und das Pendel", and "La belle et la bete".
Other titles in the same series include "Night of the big heat", "Asylum", "The Uncanny" (yawn), "Black Toment", "Devils of Darkness" and "The Flesh and Blood Show". Quite nice, really.
