Torsten is there any difference between the Italian UHD and the upcoming UK version? Or is it the same encode?
In other words, can I buy it now, or will waiting for the UK version have any benefits?
This is just the movie, not any extras.

Thanks

But on the UK edition thread they say:
"The CultFilms Blu-ray is unique to CultFilms. It is a separate encode, completely authored in UK."

The Blu-Rays will have separate encodes, the UHD's won't.

We have had some enquiries regarding the Videa UHD disc and the CultFilms UHD disc, and if and how they differ.

This UHD disc of SUSPIRIA is unique: the only way to produce it was for CultFilms and the world-rights owners of SUSPIRIA, Videa, to collaborate.

UHD Blu-rays are very expensive to produce, and we believe that this is one of the only non-mainstream film to be released on UHD at this time.

While the source encode file is shared, the two discs will look different. So, you will see the CultFilms disc — which is revealed here for first time - bearing the bewitching catalogue ref ‘CULT666’! The Videa disc is different in this respect.

The disc branches off into two after an initial panel upon insertion: the CultFilms ‘version’ opens as a CultFilms disc, with an English copyright warning and the CultFilms logo, which segues onto a menu in English.

One advantage of this shared source encode for the film is that our UHD will all the audio permutations available, in English and Italian, as listed here:

- English PCM mono
- English 2.0 DTS-HD MA
- English 5.1 DTS-HD MA
- Italian PCM mono
- Italian 2.0 DTS-HD MA
- Italian 5.1 DTS-HD MA
- Subtitles switchable both English and Italian

Everything else is different - and indeed better! In your CultFilms SteelBook edition:

• The CultFilms Blu-ray is unique to CultFilms. It is a separate encode, completely authored in UK and is entirely English-language based, but also providing the alternative Italian audio.

• To date, our CultFilms Blu-ray already has more extras. If we reach our second/Stretch Goal we will have yet more extras and indeed we may have to grow to a third disc.

What you are helping fund is a unique package: we could not have made it without your funding and that is why it is your SUSPIRIA 4K!

This strictly limited edition, numbered, embossed SteelBook will not be made available in shops, unlike the Videa product which is available to the general public and yet more expensive!

We have also been asked about the exact numbers we will produce of this special edition:

We will produce no more than 1,000 units in total.

But because of the special manufacturing process (emboss etc) and the fact that some part of the packaging will be done by hand, the forecast tolerance is given at between 5% to 10%. This means we may lose between 50 and 100 units.

This is why at this point we cannot tell how many of these unique SteelBooks we will have and therefore we cannot guarantee that we will have 1,000 pristine products until we have completed the project.

So far the package will be:

• An embossed SteelBook
• Each individually numbered
• Not available to general retail shops
• One UHD disc plus one Blu-ray disc, as minimum

Plus, depending on the overall funding, hopefully, a third disc with additional extras if we hit our Stretch Goal.

We cannot THANK YOU enough for the stupendous support and the wonderful trust you have put in us. We are new to crowd-funding and we are a very small team and appreciate your kind patience with us when we’re bit quiet! As mentioned before, we’re just making sure that the project we are building for you with your support is realistically deliverable. So far we already have a unique product.. and any further funding will go into making it just that bit more special...

As Dario Argento would say: ‘Grazie e a presto!’

This is also a good screen capture comparison (from Michael Mackenzie's recently resurrected land of whimsy site):

Got Synapse's double disc edition yesterday from Amazon.
Interesting, what they did with the picture. I like the fact that the greenish tint is gone; love those colours, too.
It is my favourite edition (I have the Italian Videa's disc too), I just wish they hadn't gone so heavy on he contrast; it is a tad excessive.
On the whole, I find the film has a more contemporary look to it, that might not appeal to some.
Btw, the disc looked exactly as I expected it to based on the caps on caps-a-holic.
