The Asphyx (Peter Newbrook, 1973)
« on: 23 Apr 2012 - 17:08 »

Really enjoyed this British horror, a really good original story. The print on the Redemption Blu Ray looks absolutely fantastic.

Starring Robert Stephens and Robert Powell.

The Odeon DVD has a ton of extras - how does this stack up?

It's excellent. Really good memories of seeing it late night on TV when I was a kid.

Hopefully I should have my copy of the BD soon. It was a definite unexpected pleasure when announced and I only had the old AB disc before. Got it for under £9 all in from Amazon Marketplace on release day.

This whole Redemption/Kino deal is one of the best things that's happened to Blu-Ray so far. Some titles, good or bad, that I never even imagined would show up

The BD looks amazing! Forgot just how much I love this film. Worth every penny and a bit more I'd say.

The extended footage on the BD looks quite ropey in comparison to the rest of the film. How is it on the Odeon dvd?

The same i would imagine,if memory serves me right,the extended scenes are cropped(possibly) and from a tape source(possibly).sorry for such a vague answer, i have not commited myself to anything there have i,will take another look and report back.
The actual restored stuff looks fantastic though,i cant imagine myself getting the blu ray
