So it's basically like the old pan and scan process? Is it ever missing picture on the right, or is it just missing the left hand side the whole time? What's wrong with Storaro, why does he care so little about his compositions? What a joke.

Not as bad as the pan and scan process by a long shot, Smiley but not the film's intended ratio,. So yes, there will be a substantial proportion of image missing from the sides of the frame throughout the film.

I'd say it's more like one of those "compromise" releases rather than pan & scan. Still and extremely bad move though, I certainly won't touch it.

BIRD Blu-Ray Arrow vs 01 vs Blue Underground at DVDBeaver
Not only is it badly cropped (which we knew already) but yet again looks like an Arrow "washed out" release. Terrible.

Just shows the professionalism of this release doesn't it.

But that image looks so much better put next to the superior BU one ;)

The image looks a lot softer too.

Still, and with respect, I've said my piece regarding this release.

The Arrow disc looks so bad in comparison that I'd rather be without the movie than buy that kind of shit... But fortunately I have the BU disc. ;D

It seems to be the same version as the Blu-ray released by Wild Side in France last year. It suffers from exactly the same issues (cold blue tint, re-framing, lack of contrast,...).

It's a bit unfair to blame Arrow. The ones guilty here are Vittorio Storaro and Dario Argento, in charge of this high definition transfer. Wild Side's technical director, Brigitte Dutray, was extremely disappointed by their job, and made public apologies in an interview.

The same thing happened a few year ago with the ketchup version of Suspiria.

It doesn't surprise me at all. Dario Argento's incompetence is beyond limits... I expect nothing good from him.  :-[
