Yeah, after the UPC mix-up between those 2 titles, the release date mix-up between those 2 titles, cross-reviews between those 2 titles (I'm sure all related to the initial UPC mix-up)...I made sure not to use Amazon on those 2 titles. Who knows if you'll get the right product in the end from Amazon for those 2 titles? I don't want to risk the hassle, plus they're cheaper elsewhere.

From Facebook

"With SLAUGHTER HOTEL, it’s almost as if Di Leo was trying to make the form echo the content, creating a madhouse of crazed-craft that mirrors the state of mind of most of the people on-screen. Read that way, the film is an experimental, expressionist masterpiece. But taken for what it is, SLAUGHTER HOTEL is just a hot, sweaty, bloody and sleazy slab of Eurosleaze that is, like most of Di Leo’s work, most assuredly alive."

An extract from the insert booklet curated by Chris Alexander/Fangoria Magazine
THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE GOTHIC:
Exploring THE LONG HAIR OF DEATH
"If you’re a fan and scholar of that very special brand of shuddery, gothic thriller that emerged from Italy in the 1960’s then there’s no point over-preaching the goosebump-inducing gospel of director Antonio Margheriti’s THE LONG HAIR OF DEATH. Chances are, you’re already of the choir. You understand and value that preternatural power of this film and other of its ilk. You revere that blend of pulp thrills, rich, practical production design, covert eroticism and operatic emotional arcs that marked the best of these remarkable pictures........"

Got Werewolf Woman in today. I've never seen it before, so I only sampled a minute or two, but I didn't notice anything really egregious as far as DNR. It certainly looked better than Nightmare City that I got as a free 2nd title. I probably won't have time to watch it this weekend.

I think Raro's Werewolf Woman is a winner in picture quality.

The picture quality seems fair for a film of the age, detail is good and there's a clear grain structure. Colors seem muted to a minor extent, which I suppose we'd expect for a film of the era. I can see the pores on human werewolf woman's face, pubic hairs, texture on a fuzzy robe, foliage in the background at night... there are times of occasional softness but the movie does a lot with cinematography to intentionally keep some background or foreground out of focus.

I watched Kino/Redemption's Virgin Among the Living Dead (1973) earlier today and Raro's Werewolf Woman (1977) looks a lot better.

Unfortunately I'm not able to take screenshots. To my eye the disc is a BD 25 (there is only one barcode along the center spindle, which I think means 25) but I'm not 100%.

If anything Raro's Werewolf Woman image is slightly darker than I'd prefer, but that might be my own set display settings and it's not bad.

RSP review of Werewolf Woman - as the writer notes, it looks slightly less horrible then we're used to from Raro, but still plenty of waxiness and compression artifacts. I guess this is 'as good as it gets' from these guys.
