Just received the Mya disc. Bloody hell, it's amateur night.

Who checks Mya's English? Nobody by the looks of it. Poorly spelled subtitles and spelling mistakes on the menus. Then there's a poor excuse for an image gallery which is made up of grainy images nicked from the web. Shoddy.

And the bonus scenes - all sub-VHS quality. Disappointed.

Now to check the film itself against the various video releases I've collected over the years.

That's a shame. Been really looking forward to this release. Hope the actual film is in good shape...

I had my doubts about Mya qualitywise since it's an offspring of Noshame who also succeeded in messing up some "could have been great" releases (like the poor pal-ntsc transfers of the Martino's).
Mya's discs are not cheap so I won't be buying them if they're shoddy.
I hope they shape up!

It's a shame. I was planing to get this one...

Is it that bad? Or just bad "for expert eyes like yours"?

That's disappointing. Shoddy sub-titles are a real sticking point with me. I hope the print is up to scratch.

Here's the deal: it's great quality but only 88 minutes. The original Spanish language letterboxed print was used. There are 6 minutes of extra footage in poor quality from the Italian language print including 2 brief topless scenes. There are some spelling/grammar mistakes, but the most shocking thing of all is there are what look like some freezes or jumps maybe every 10 minutes or so that last for a split second that were probably done to keep the English language soundtrack in sync with the picture. Maybe the print used was PAL and they had to match the speed for NTSC sound. Other extras are lobby cards and poster art. This is still definately worth picking up. I'll note that the sound is pretty good, much better than their CRAVING DESIRE which seems like they took the English track from a bad videotape and is very low and often indecipherable.

No sale for me...this is a travesty imho.
Has Mya released anything without serious flaws yet?

Does anybody have the Japanese version of this, or the Spanish version? I'm doing a thorough comparison of all known releases.

Here's a scan of the Finnish tape. I confess I've never cared for this one, it has all the elements for a classic but it just leaves me cold. Still ,enjoy the scan:

Have there been any other DVD releases of this film anywhere? I see there's an Italian DVD that's full screen.
