Has anybody noticed that the left and right stereo channels are reversed on this release too (the Dolby EX track on the Blue Underground DVD was the same). Not in every scene but I found it noticeable.

"We can finally reveal that our next Lucio Fulci Blu-ray upgrade will be... MANHATTAN BABY! We're working on a new 2K restoration from the original negative, as well as producing a bunch of new special features. More details later, but here's a sneak peek of the 3-Disc Limited Edition cover artwork, along with the alternate "Eye of the Evil Dead" art featured on the reverse side."

I love Fulci and have never seen this, but given its sub-par reputation I think I'll pass for now.

I wish Grindhouse would do more 3 disk collectors sets for more Fulci films like how they did with "The Beyond." A super duper deluxe Grindhouse edition of "The House By The Cemetery" or "City Of The Living Dead" would be awesome.

Egypt scenes are cool. You can tell they ran out of money with this one. It has the feel of his early 80s atmospheric horror filsm, just not good.
Wanted:
Warner Bros UK 90th Anniversary slipcover: 'A Clockwork Orange'
Criterion: 'The Third Man' Digipak (do NOT need discs or booklets)
Studio Canal Collection Nordic Edition slipcovers for digibook releases
Disney UK 3D slipcover for 'Frozen'

People are acting as if Fulci’s other films were Oscar caliber. Manhattan Baby seems on par with the other films that he made at that time namely, Zombie, City of the Living Dead, The Beyond, and The House by the Cemetery; all being long on intrigue, horror, and gore, but terribly short on story and cohesive plot.

Those aforementioned films all have their own charms and I’m sure Manhattan Baby fits nicely in the Fulci canon.

You're sure? Does this imply you haven't seen it? It's like night and day with quality. None of those previously mentioned are Oscar caliber, but they are not simply garbage, they have a lot of very unique visuals and style and atmosphere. Manhattan Baby is basically just a turd. The Beyond especially is a minor classic of the subgenre and to imply it's standard exploitation trash due to the lack of "cohesive plot" suggests you didn't pay much attention to it or have a very rigid set of criteria for what makes something "good" which doesn't allow for anything that puts visuals over plot.

Visual and atmosphere is nice. I was referring to script and story. To me they are all minor turds. Some are nicer than others, but turds nonetheless.

I'll definitely pick up Manhattan Baby down the road. Yeah The Beyond is a classic, my favorite part is when the evil rubber tarantulas on strings begin to chew on the foam latex head, CLASSIC!! Try not to read to much into Fulci's films, just enjoy them for what they are.

The sound effects during the tarantula scene are amazing!

I do not believe I have seen Manhattan Baby but I'll probably give it a shot at some point. It'll depend on what else is being released at that time.

I'm with others on Don't Torture a Duckling. I really, really want it to get a U.S. release!

Super stoked about MANHATTAN, and glad to see BU doing something other than euro-crime and double features.

I know BU has always claimed DUCKLING was a terrible seller, but I'm hoping they'll give it a second chance.

The sequence with the chains is probably the best thing Fulci ever directed.
A+!

Have to admit I don't understand all the love for Manhattan Baby.

It was one of the first Fulci I saw. Got interested in him pretty late, and all the old Anchor Bay DVD released had gone OOP by then, so my very first titles were the double-feature with The New York Ripper, bought on eBay.

Loved The New York Ripper. Found Manhattan Baby very, very boring.

I don't know, it's been almost ten years, so maybe I am ready to give it another chance.

Fulci's films are an acquired taste. Someone coming into his work late won't have the same appreciation for his films as his loyal fans do. Having said that, I admit Manhattan Baby is not one of his best movies. It is, however, among his last polished films. Most of his post-Manhattan Baby/Murder Rock stuff was shot super cheap and super quick and it shows. His late 80's TV movies are some of the worst movies ever made IMO. Personally, I'm looking forward to revisiting Manhattan Baby in glorious HD
