I really love this.  A truly demented film. The Luminous DVD-R of this which is the longest version I've seen.  It seems to be a French print which has been over dubbed into English for the dialogue scenes, apart from a couple of instances, during the examination of the murdered young girl by Howard Vernon and the scene with Hyde shafting the general's daughter, where the dialogue is partly in Italian and so the original source was probably an Italian Language version of a French print.  I also have a copy of the Dutch tape, which is in English Language and runs a little shorter than the Luminous version.

Wasn't Cult Epics supposed to be working on a DVD release of this?

Count me in as a big fan of this film too. It's dark and perverse. I'd love to see it on DVD.

I've got a couple of versions of this film including a DVD-R of the Dutch tape and the UK VTS VHS release. Isn't the longest version supposed to be the Japanese VHS release, which suffers from optical censorship (ie, fogging) in a couple of scenes?

Does anyone have a list of the different edits of this film?

I've only ever seen the heavily cut Bloodbath of Dr.Jeckyll version on VTC.

Just recently got this off Jonny and it really is a nice composite job done by Marc.  A quick question for you Marc.  What sources did you use to compose the disc and what are the differences between the two audio tracks.

I just watched this again the other day. What a great film it is. And I was struck by Bernard Parmegiani's excellent soundtrack. Not someone I was familiar with at all, but it turns out he's a well respected composer with an incredible catalogue of work behind him. I don't suppose that the music for the film is available? If it is, can someone point me in the right direction? And while we're at it...

I heard that the film was available on Laserdisc and that a (fogged) Japanese copy exists. Does anyone have it on DVD? And if you do, how can I get hold of a copy?
