Has Reeves' first film THE SHE-BEAST had a decent dvd release yet?


Deepdiscount.com (DDD) has the upcoming DVD for $8.14 (free shipping included for those stateside).  It will be in scope ratio, despite DDD's saying it's full-frame.

http://www.deepdiscount.com/viewproduct.htm?productId=61173654

Also DDD has nearly every Dark Sky Disc on sale right now.  Lot's of Euro-cult, Horror, Cult, etc.  $19.95 discs are $10.86 and $14.95 discs are $8.14. (Again, free shipping included for those stateside)

Here's a link to Dark Sky's catalogue at their webstore.

Thanks for posting that, I love that cover....it features Susan George on front and back sleeve!
Susan is often not mentioned in conection with the film, one of her first film roles.

I'm almost sure the opening scene with Karloff walking to the shop was filmed in Murray Street,just off Agar Grove in Camden.

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

I think that you've got that mixed up with the German DVD release of The Curse of the Crimson Altar, haven't you?

Is the old uk dvd any good? Having never actually seen the film I thought it would be a good time to make amends

It's a really good film but I never got around to buying the UK DVD either before it went OOP. It was on BBC2 a little while ago so I recorded that but I'll be interested to know how the Warner disc looks compared to the old UK one.

I have the old UK DVD on the Prism Leisure label. I haven't watched it for a number of years but I seem to recall it being pretty good with a decent selection of special features. I seem to recall that there were quite a few scratches of instances of dirt on the print, and I assume that the original negatives were not utilised for the transfer.

I'm really surprised nobody has attempted a re-make of this.

Odeon have mentioned on their Facebook page that they'll be releasing this on BD.  ::)

Seems they have this, Curse of the Crimson Altar, Night of the Big Heat, Black Torment and Island of Terror all on their way. Tremendous!
