Thanks to Dominik Ehlers over at the El Franconomicon blog for posting. I hope this release is properly framed at 2.35:1 instead of changing to 1.85:1 after the scope credits, like the DIVISA and IMAGE DVDs. Also the end music is prematurely cut off, signalling they were both from the same master. I’m hoping this release 

is a new HD master from the camera negative and in full Techniscope.

I had a long talk with Jess Franco about the framing and he was very adamant that the scope ratio was not imposed on him nor was it done arbitrarily.

More on that in a future blog.

It’s one of my favorite of his surrealist Gothics of the early 1970s (cf VAMPYROS LESBOS, THE EROTIC RITES OF FRANKENSTEIN) and a much underappreciated and underrated work.  UPDATE, recent caps on the German site indicate this will be in 2.35:1 and have superior definition and color.
