At least this German release has got a much nicer looking front cover compared to the Image release. ;-)

I thought that only the previous German release by Splendid Entertainment had that forced subtitle track on the English audio option... so I guess this newer DVD might contain the same master.

If it does still have the forced subs and there's no way of getting rid of them, you could always rip the DVD and take off the sub track using DVD Decrypter and burn a new copy to DVD-R. A bit of a pain but it's what I'd do.

Only ever seen this on TV and that was at least 20 years ago! Seeing those grabs brings back some memories, I'd forgotten about Telly Savalas' extravagant outfit!

I had more grabs to post but it took so long to upload them to imageshack I just stuck with these. I first saw this on Shock Theater as a kid where I saw numerous other greats late night on weekends. This is one of my favorite movies.

Just so I can get things in perspective do you mind saying how old you are? You can be vague if you want mate... 20's, 30's?

Judging by your photo presuming that was you I'd say you couldn't be too far ahead or behind me. There is a pic of me in "stuff signed" thread.

38 in a couple of weeks  :D

Marc's older than me though! Not that age really has any relevance at all! Martin's only in his early 20's and his knowledge of Spaghetti's is amazing. Same goes for The Hunchback, who's a similar age, I think?

Yeah, he's 20 now I think. I though he was older until I spoke with him the first time. He's an adamant spaghetti-file. It took some arm-pulling to get him and Lanzetta to look into some other genres such as mexi-horror, italo crime and most recently Shaw Brothers actioners.

Here are some comparison pictures. Note: any additional information on the sides is just me messing up the exact screen capture. Generally the prints seem to be about the same - the US print is slightly sharper (some blurring on the German disc in movement) but the colours on the German disc seem a lot more realistic.

Thanks for the grabs! I think I'll be happy with the video quality.. so how is the English audio compared to the Image disc?    :-*

Well if someone wants to post some audio clips!!
I've listened to bits of the film, and it sounds fine. No 'music only option' though.

The bonus features are; German cinema trailer, the opening and closing titles from a rather beaten up German VHS print and a short photo gallery.

The audio on the Image disc is crystal only I do not think it is anamorphic. The disc is from '99 and it says nothing on the back about being anamorphic.
