If you are looking for a good transfer of this excellent yet obscure film there's good news and bad news. This seems to have come from a pretty good source. (alot better than my crappy bootleg) It has only moderate damage, mostly little white specks which don't bother me much. And it looks like the image would be nice and crisp if only they had kept it in focus when they transferred it. Sometimes the focus is so bad you feel as if you're seeing double. What a shame. What a missed opportunity. this is definitely a film which deserves to be rescued from obscurity. But this dvd is not likely to do so. On the other hand, the sound is quite good. Nice and clear. I can't tell you which company released this DVD as they didn't put their name on the packaging. (Possibly from shame.) but it has a white cover. In short if you have never seen this film then it is worth the $7 to buy it. If you have a copy that is rather bad then this will be an upgrade and worth the money. But...
I saw this movie on TCM one night and ordered it to share with my husband. However, the product I received is labeled as above as is the disc; but what plays on the disc is a cheesy low-budget Hercules movie~! Amazon promptly refunded my money, for which I am grateful. I really wanted to show my husband this movie; it made some strong social ethical points~will wait and try another source I guess. Glad others received the right film! Wonder who ordered hercules and is being horrified by child murder?
WARNING!..DON'T ORDER THIS DVD VERSION, EVEN IF IT'S FREE,..THIS IS TAKEN FROM A VHS PRINT, AND THE PRINT IS UNWATCHABLE!..THIS IS A GREAT MOVIE...BETTER TO RECORD IT ON TCM,...A RIPOFF!!!!
