The DVD seemed to have better colors :)  Of course the title card was in German on the DVD so no help there.  I grabbed some caps from the dvd to match ( roughly ) the Beaver caps ( the caps are sequenced Odeon / Olive / DVD ).

i don't know about that really.. the DVD looks very 'natural' but it's a 60's atmospheric horror film, not a documentary.

Also, where are the blue brigade? In those Olive caps we have blue wallpaper, blue curtains, blu pyjamas and Alan Freeman is wearing a blue shirt. Funny how everyone slated Dracula and others for being too blue but this is fine.

I'm not saying the Odeon is correct but everyone wants to be an armchair colour-timer when they've probably never even been near a first generation print and I dare say wouldn't honestly remember it if they had. Same with aspect ratios.

Love the point about the blue! Now you mention it I can't NOT see the blue!  ;D

Call me old fashioned but I'm going give the chaps at Pinewood the benefit of the doubt. I have the Odeon on pre-order and will be sticking with that, I'll not be buying the Olive release.

I just opted to get the Odeon one in the end as it was at hand to buy.

Watched it tonight and really glad I stuck with the Odeon. Really good disc overall and the restoration looks great. Only got a few mins into the doc but that looks like it's going to be well worth it.

Reports coming in that the Odeon disc is missing audio from the end of the Chris Lee segment. Be interesting to see if Odeon do anything to rectify this...

It's not an 88 style problem, they miss out entire scenes. This an audio cue, as in a scream effect, missing from the soundtrack

Yeah they do miss out entire scenes. They have had several audio probs though on Bloodstained Shadow and another release which escapes me offhand. Usually Odeon do a bang up job. Guess these things happen though from time to time

Reported issues with the Odeon
( courtesy of a post by bgart @ latarnia )
- Lee's scream (when he's being put in the ambulance at the end of his segment) is very low in the sound mix for the Odeon release, whereas it's very loud and proper in the Olive release.
- The musical sting when the god appears in the voodoo segment is not present in the Odeon sound mix, but it is present in the Olive release.
- The ending of the film is quite different in the Odeon release. It jumps quickly and the music fades out and gets cut short in Odeon's, whereas it's extended and quite normal in Olive's release.

I've got the Odeon DVD of it from a few years ago. I wonder if those issues were present there? I've never noticed anything, but it's not a film I've watched ad infinitum over the years, so probably wouldn't have noticed it anyway

Ended up buying the Olive one too now.
