Received my copy last week of THE PSYCHIC and have only watched about a minute to see how the picture quality is ..not bad.
I recently watched this in the cinema in Torino and what struck me was the amount of the colour red in the film. It really leaped off the screen and adds to the heavy psycholical atmosphere that is lurking beneth the surface and added greatly to the claustrophobic viewing experience.
Really beautiful film which takes its time but ultimatelly pays off.

I suppose that I am just glad that there are still labels out there, such as Severin and Mondo Macabro, who are releasing the kind of genre product that we all enjoy so much.

can someone please spoil the ending for me ?! I find this part of dialogue in the hospital very hard to follow. at least the plastered guy mumbles more than he actually talks..  ??? my first language is not english and unfortunately the severin disc does not contain any subs...

what is written in this letter ? and what role plays the plastered guy in all this ???

thanks

I thought this was funny in a bizarre way



As for the movie, I saw this as a Catalina Video VHS release which I bought for one dollar at the local thrift store a couple of years ago.

The 84 films Blu-Ray arrived this morning. Gorgeous looking set, though digipacks have never been thing, but the picture quality is rather noisy. I'll watch it on my screen before I make any judgements. Here are some screenshots, which I assume are compressed.

Grabs look pretty ropey on my phone, I'll check them on the laptop later. Let us know what you think when you've watched it mate

Kind of looks on a par with City of the Living Dead from the caps but not as bad as Tenebrae or Django. Might still have to go for it if it doesn't sell out before I have the cash.

Looking at it on my iMac it reminded me of Django, far too much noise. But noise seems to show up more on the Mac display than on my projector. It looks better in motion, not sure it's worth the hefty price tag. I would assume it's another LVR job.

I finally picked up the BD as it was starting to disappear and I didn't want a large ugly hardbox. PQ-wise, it was actually a little better than I expected. The noise is there but it's definitely around the City of the Living Dead level if not slightly better and actually looks pretty good in some parts I think. The opening few mins are pretty harsh but it seems to improve overall. Certainly a big step up from the Severin DVD.

Now, what the fuck is up with the English track???? A complete balls-up of a mix with all manner of flanging and phasing. It's only just about bearable. I thought maybe they'd tried to squeeze down a 2.0 mono track into 1.0 but I checked the included DVD which supposedly is 2.0 and it's the same. God knows but the Severin audio and the German track are fine. What ended up a surprise in the PQ ended up being totally let down by the AQ!

The thing is I work with audio day in day out so the effect sticks out like a sore thumb but I don't know if I'd notice it more than most because of that. I get annoyed by weird audio anomalies as much as others get annoyed by PQ artifacts and some people don't really notice them, like how over zealous No Shame were with noise reduction to clean up the audio which leaves a ringing fake boxy reverb trail on some of the soundtracks.

I've not even seen the issue on this one mentioned before but then there don't seem to be many reports of English-speakers actually owning it.

I noticed it, it annoyed the hellout of me, but as I didn't see any complaints being made I assumed it was a setting I needed to change on my BR player   :-\
