Well, I wouldn't bet my rent money on this release not being of the dodgy kind. :-*

This site in particular isn't exactely known for checking twice whether they're offering bootleg releases or not....It doesn't really have a good reputation on German boards....so I would wait a bit around to see whether or not the same disc will be offered at more trustworthy places, too.

Digging through the titles, which have been banned for years in Germany, yet get their reappearance every now and then via "new" Austrian (German?) labels is like fighting your way through a cannibal populated Amazonian jungle, mate....It's a hard guess which release is legit and which is not. :-*

Still it's great to hear all these classy 70's/80's German dubs again...plus, the likes of "Antro", "The Beyond", "City of the living Dead" etc offer very interesting music and sound alterations specifically designed for the German market.
(George Eastman's cannibal, for instance, gets one great line of "monologue", which can be only found in the German version :-\)

It would have been a shame if they died out with their banned VHS incarnations... :P

Its not like you can use Amazon.de to gauge the legitimacy of these releases since most of them are FSK-18 and not sold through them.

Exactely. Most of the titles in question can't be sold at amazon.de due to the strict "youth potection" laws.
IF they offer a title like "The Beyond" though, it's almost certainly a butchered version. :-*
These "banned"/cult/"dubious" movies get sold for the most part via Austrian shops.

An exception is the controversial release of "Four Flies...", which SUPPOSELY has now been discharged of all claims of being a bootleg. That one could be now also found on amazon.de.

Note the words 'Spectacular new hi-definition digital anamorphic widescreen transfer' - now that's what's piqued my interest. A new hi-def transfer? Possible Blu-ray? I hope so!

2 good DVD releases plus the laserdisc should do until then. :-\

Arrow's upcoming release has the pre-credit sequence in black & white rather than sepia toned. Is there a precedent for this? I've never seen it in b&w before so I'm assuming it's a fuck up made during transfer.

It might have been in the 7 DOORS OF DEATH version, though I don't have a copy so can't check. The clip on Youtube isn't very good quality, at least not good enough to be 100% certain. It looks sepia to me but that could be down the the poor quality...

Just to clear up as to whether the 7 DOORS OF DEATH version has the sequence in B&W or sepia I took some grabs from the 7 DOORS clip found on the Grindhouse Tin Edition and added the same grab from the feature on that same disc.

Statement from Arrow...

Quote
We are taking this very seriously. The benefit of having PR time with check discs prior to release is it allows us to correct things where possible. They are only check discs that reviewers receive and do not always reflect the final product.

The restoration and colour grading for THE BEYOND took place in Italy by the owner of the film, we then received the HD Master in the UK where we felt that the restoration was not good enough so had additional work on the film carried out using an HD Archangel to fix and stabilise motion, weave, picture flicker, overscan and interpolation as well as MTI technology to remove marks and picture defects. Colour grading was completed in Italy and was not tampered with here, we are investigating the colour of the film from negative to master to disc and hope to have more information soon. Once we have more information we can discuss this with the technical team and ensure the right colour is properly presented on this Arrow Video edition.

Once we have further information we will happily communicate every step of the way what is happening and we hope that our customers will keep their confidence in us to deliver the best product possible come release day.

This further illustrates the importance of waiting until there are a few options before shelling out for the first one that come along.

We own all these films on DVD. In most cases I own the definitive DVDs. I’m in absolutely no rush to upgrade to Blu-ray and in most cases won’t be swayed just because it’s HD, either.

Their forums were the first time I was ever "warned" about anything on a forum (through a PM from one of their moderators).

It seems they don't take too well about anything that can be remotely considered criticism.

Great review from the ever reliable David Flint...

http://www.strangethingsarehappening.com/beyond.html

Quote
Arrow’s new release is – as usual – jammed with extras, and – as usual – they are mostly really poorly made efforts from a crew who I can only assume have some VERY incriminating photos of the Arrow bosses to keep getting these gigs. There are interviews with actors MacColl and Cinzia Moneale and US distributor Terry Levene, FX man Gianetto Di Rossi and Fulci memories from the likes of Dario Argento – it’s a pity that they haven’t been made by someone using a decent video camera and a light.

The interviews were no cop too. Most of them seemed to drag on for days, I ended up vacuuming, playing Scrabble, having a wank... Anything to make time pass by quicker.

They need someone with a better eye and more of an understanding of the subject matter, not someone who thinks his shit is chocolate, to put them together. David Gregory does similar interviews for Blue Underground but they serve the subject better.

I was very surprised at The Beyond being initially pressed with the black and white opening. No offense to all concerned, but if nobody noticed this, then they obviously aren't the fans they claim to be. But, mistakes are made, and at least Arrow are rectifying the problem. If you know it should be sepia, then you can get a replacement - but if you don't....well...I can foresee in years to come people arguing that the opening should be in black and white  ;D

I also used to post regularly at Cult Labs, but am finding it tiresome these days.

That does seem a bit pointless, doesn't it? The BD was pretty good, overall, though - just a shame that no-one seems able to sort out the audio issues. The audio fluctuated wildly between hardly discernible to absolutely booming. I'd turn up the sound, then the next second get deafened. Surely there are tools to 'normalise' the audio tracks on films like this?

Anyway, sorry to go off-topic.

Yeah, I agree. Sending out replacements IF you know you've got an incorrect copy is a bit different to doing a complete recall. They should've recalled all faulty stock and then sold them to the clueless Cult Labs fans who think it's great to have a black and white opening. They could stick them in their display cabinets. ::)

Complete debacle. They fully expected people to buy a faulty product, pay to send it back to them and then wait for the replacement to arrive. Had it not been for a few people getting on a certain someone's case on the forum, they'd never have agreed to accept just the receipt.

It's really quite outrageous how they expected to ship the botched copies prior to release and none of the rectified version palming-off their loyal fan base, expecting it to believe that it could still get the corrected disc on day one. The die-hard collector’s deserve better, really. They support every release and in a lot of instances buying them before any reviews have surfaced. Had they come clean and told everyone on the forum that there was no chance of getting the rectified version on the day of release, people would have understood, especially If they’d have allowed them to buy the correct disc direct from them.

Complete debacle. They fully expected people to buy a faulty product, pay to send it back to them and then wait for the replacement to arrive. Had it not been for a few people getting on a certain someone's case on the forum, they'd never have agreed to accept just the receipt.

It's really quite outrageous how they expected to ship the botched copies prior to release and none of the rectified version palming-off their loyal fan base, expecting it to believe that it could still get the corrected disc on day one. The die-hard collector’s deserve better, really. They support every release and in a lot of instances buying them before any reviews have surfaced. Had they come clean and told everyone on the forum that there was no chance of getting the rectified version on the day of release, people would have understood, especially If they’d have allowed them to buy the correct disc direct from them.

Ineed. I don't really understand why they went ahead in shipping out the faulty product. I think their explanation was something to do with meeting the deadline or something to that effect. But surely they have a say in that? Why would you knowingly put out a faulty product? One scenario: someone who doesn't frequent the 'net very often but knows their cult films picks this up, sees the black and white opening, doesn't know a replacement is available, and just assumes that all Arrow product is shit. No more sales for Arrow. It's simply bad business. But I guess they're counting on a sizeable portion of the buying public simply being unaware of the fault and thus reducing costs in replacements. Why not notify all the stores that a replacement is available?

I think it’ more of a case that they probably pressed in excess of a 1000 copies. If they ship them and wait for those in the know to spot the issue and complain, they’ve only got those copies to come back. There will be stacks of people that won’t know there’s a problem, wouldn’t remember it was supposed to be sepia or couldn’t care anyway. You’d be surprised but I would imagine it’s a very small percentage of that initial batch that are returned for replacement.

As sad as it to say for a Euro cult fan, I would have fallen into the "wouldn't have noticed" category. I had no idea what was the correct scheme was, so if it was never brought up I would have had a shoddy product thinking I had the "ultimate product".
I wonder if Arrow could issue a note to vendors about the replacement? I guess they wouldn't want to for business reasons.

I think that's probably nearer the truth, sad as it is to say. I understand that they're a business and expect them to behave as such - but that also means, in my book, being professional and courteous to their customers. I'm glad that replacements are going to be available (has anyone had one yet, I wonder? I expect the Cult labs Mods will get first dibs LOL!) but that's not really the point, is it? I'd expect a label handling cult titles to at least have some knowledge of the titles they're releasing, or get someone on-board who does, at the very least. To miss that the opening is wholly incorrectly presented is something that should never really have happened. They obviously looked closely at the transfer, as they requested further work on the restoration, but missed the fact that the opening was in the wrong colour scheme? Oh well...

The other scandalous thing is that the first pressing is on a 25gb disc yet the cover states a 50gb size. Another fuck-up or an intentional misleading of purchasers?

In my opinion, they haven't even pressed them yet.
They recently confirmed the disc was still being authored, and would only be shipping in 2-3 weeks, so they certainly didn't press them.

IMO, they handled the situation rather terribly. Sure, they are replacing the discs, but they are knowingly selling the incorrect disc to unknowing customers, and it upsets me to think people unfamiliar with the film will experience it for the first time in a rather incorrect way.
I can't wait to have a new generation of film lovers arguing that the intro of The Beyond should be black & white, similarly to a discussion I had on the internet with a guy who kept insisting the short "hack job" of a version of Profondo Rosso is the original, "true" cut of the film (heck, he even saw it theatrically in Italy when it was released, and it was this shorter cut), and that the longer cut was nothing but an unofficial version put together by Anchor Bay with some added outtakes, and I was totally ignorant to think otherwise.  ???

It's a shame this company doesn't appear to be open to criticism, if they were they could certainly improve their output. They are releasing some great titles on BD, and if they had someone in there familiar with the films (maybe a "partnership" with the guys from Nucleus Films, from fellow forum poster Marc Morris) who could help them iron out these issues (pretty much all their releases are flawed, and the problems could, in most cases, have been easily avoided), and provide them with good special features (I don't like to complain about something that is essentially a bonus, but the special features on their releases are a good example of quantity < quality), we could be seeing some truly must have releases for genre fans.

Instead, and while I own quite a few of them (I currently own all the BD releases from their Arrow Video sub-label, except Caligula), for me their releases are pretty much a case of "it will have to do until a better release comes out", which is a shame.

You know what: maybe we should start a label one of these days...  ;D
Heck, if the guys from Midnight Video were able to start a label and release Alien 2 on BD, I don't see why we can't.

So the replacement discs have started to surface. I'll be interested to read some reviews on them as I would quite like to own an HD copy of this film at some point :)

I'm a bit wary of the fact that Arrow have had to re-colour the black and white intro to make it look like the original sepia tone...

You and me both, Robert. I was under the impression that Salvati colour graded the golden yellow from the colour print. To recolour the black and white isn't going to be quite the same....or is it? Has anyone actually commented on this yet?
Title: Re: The Beyond / E tu vivrai nel terrore - L'aldilà (Lucio Fulci, 1981)
Post by: Bronson on 27 Apr 2011 - 22:48

Regarding the Arrow release, a few minor quibbles.

I've got the replacement disc and it certainly seems that the opening scene has been recoloured from the black and white. It's less golden yellow and more sepia.

Also, there's a slight flaw at the beginning of the funeral scene when the picture fuzzes and parts of it pixellate. Only a second or so.

The most frustrating thing is at the very start of the DVD. There's an unskippable bit, showing loads of Arrow releases and also a montage of loads of gruesome death scenes from a variety of different horror films, that presumably they release. For those that haven't seen them, I guess the impact of seeing the films will now be lessened somewhat by the inclusion of some of their scenes here.

It's essentially three minutes of Arrow loudly blowing their own trumpet. I just wanted to skip straight to the film.

Cheers,

Bronson

Can't find the shipping receipt that came with the original order. Ironically the first disc went missing in the post and then a month later and a filed complaint later the B/W opening disc arrived...

I was under the impression that they'd "fixed" the discs - a few slipped through, but apparently not then.

If they'd come clean and just said "Sorry, we've screwed up. There won't be corrected discs out in time for release" people would have understood and waited. They shot themselves in the foot trying to fool people by saying that the incorrect and correct discs would be available on day one. We're not idiots, we understand that the mess up resulted in the manufacturing of discs that cost the company a lot of money, but they could have just told the loyal fans that they'd not get the proper release from their chosen retailer and that if they wanted one they could order direct from Arrow after a designated date. The company has such loyal devotees I'm sure they'd have bought both anyway. But someone made the descision to try and bluff their way out of the situation forgetting that a lot of people are quite savvy about the process of release. So the lying added insult to injury. Offering the fans the chance to claim a rectified version of the release AND keep the original copy was a good gesture BUT they needn't have had to had they just come clean at the beginning. There are a lot of people who won't forget the fact that the initial reaction to the blunder was a complete lie and that's got to be damaging for business.

BTW - I'm not at all anti-Arrow - I have a fair few of their discs and am happy with them. I've even pre-ordered TENEBRAE. I do think the BEYOND situation has hurt them.  It's the dishonesty that will see their reputation still tarnished long after THE BEYOND's B&W intro is forgotten, and that's quite sad really.

KILLFINGER - From what I've heard you can order the replacement direct from Arrow and they'll accept a print-out your order confirmation from the site where you bought the disc. If in doubt, try and contact them direct, mate.

Apparently the Blu-Ray release will feature this edit and a stronger one that removes the digital manipulation.  It was great to see it on the big screen, Deodato seems a thoroughly nice chap
