The one Fulci film I always wanted to see. And now that I've discovered I actually like Fulci, I'm more excited.

It's a good one, so you shouldn't be disappointed!

Arrow continues to deliver..

What about the transfer?

No details?

Big restoration?

Will it be as good as the recent European release?

This is great news and does make me hope that we'll see some more 'early Fulci' such as Perversion Story (which a certain Mr Mackenzie did a detailed comparison of the DVD versions of on his blog a number of years ago!). Or maybe even The Psychic!

Yes the Fulci thrillers are essential.

So, I would argue, is Beatrice Cenci/ Conspiracy of Torture, the 1969 historical drama with horrific aspects and, I'd argue, Panic Theatre aesthetics.

How was the German Blu ray of Don't Torture a Duckling? How will Arrow's transfer differ from that one? Lizard, we know, is already easily available in very good shape and it'd be great if Perversion Story turned up.

Was reading in the Facebook announcement page. Arrow responded that it's the same as the German transfer. Different encode, of course.

Think I heard this was a very good restoration. Though I can't remember where.

What do we know about the German release of this great Italian thriller?
