^^ There are other Fulci film that have yet to see an official DVD release in the US too, BEATRICE CENCI being the most obvious. Stepping away from Fulci, FIVE DAYS OF MILAN has not had an English-friendly release and being an Argento film you'd think it ripe for someone, anyone to release it but sometimes it's a case of "is it any good" or "will it make money" - if the answer to one of those questions is "no" it's a gamble but both then it's less likely to get picked up. The market has shrunk so much since the mid-noughties that expensive licencing are seldom an issue with these films now, it's more of a case of making sure every release brings in the bucks.

But given the mad rush for Fulci titles back in the day with Blue Underground, Shriek Show etc Devils Honey seemed to get missed. Even EC Entertainment didn't put it out on dvd and they released virtually everything Fulci directed in the 80's and early 90's on disc. Just seems a bit funny to me that Devils Honey could make it's home release debut on blu, I'd always thought the rights must have been silly money or the print was in really bad condition.

But anyway, to pick up from Camera Obscuras post it seems that studios have to basically tell LVR and other labs exactly what they do and don't want ie. DNR and scanner noise. That just sounds crazy, if your paying the labs to produce a HD master for you you'd expect it to be the best the lab can create without adding scanner noise and macro blocking.

I've heard the issue isn't with the scans that LVR produce but is what the labels do with the results.

So did plenty of his other titles too to be fair.

There was an Asian DVD. It was hardly ignored. It was just the usual culprits that got the widespread releases.

I've got that disc, Hong Kong or Taiwan, if memory serves. Pretty shitty release.

Yeah it's Hong Kong.

Some people just don't search out of their comfort zone away from Arrow, Shameless (and now 88) and maybe a few of the more know U.S. distributor's though and just summise they didn't come out anywhere else.

Raro's "Nightmare City" looked like it had been DNR'd to fuck. Very disappointing that one. Their releases do seem to be very hit and miss. "Killer Cop" looked great though imo

Also Meet Him And Die and Stunt Squad. Absolutely garbage releases.


MEET HIM AND DIE I would agree with, STUNT SQUAD not so much. Though not perfect, it was a clear step up in terms of colour and clarity over the DVD

The bad lab in Italy is another one, which we try to avoid, and which continues to do catastrophic work. If tha one's involved, you really have a reason to worry.

Good to know LVR can be guided if baby stepped through a transfer ( ie: have someone knowledgeable tell them how to do their job ). 
So what's the name of the 'bad' lab so we can direct our collective ire in the proper direction?  :-*
