United Kingdom The Sect (1991) Shameless

It's official!
Shameless are releasing the Dario Argento penned and Michele Soavi directed horror film, THE SECT.

https://www.cult-labs.com/forums/cur...ment-sect.html

The wait is finally over! We are delighted to announce a brand new film to the Shameless catalogue that you are going to LOVE! A big congratulations to all those who guessed correctly too.
Prepare yourself for stunning visuals in the atmospheric and gasp-inducing cult horror Dario Argento's protégé and assistant Michele Soavi (the director of Shameless' CEMETERY MAN aka DELLAMORTE DELLAMORE)



Shameless will present the brand new complete, restored and remastered version from the 2k materials version in original English (as well as Italian with new English subs). This upcoming Shameless release will be the 1st DVD/Blu-ray release of the film in UK and is practically unreleased anywhere else in the world!



Shameless synopsis:

Schoolteacher Kelly Curtis (sister of scream queen, Jamie Lee Curtis) - delivering one of the bes tfemale lead performances in 90s horror cinema - has been chosen by a Manson-like devil-worshipping sect headed by Herbert Lom (of Pink Panther fame) to give birth to the son of Satan, himself.



More details will be announced very shortly, including the brand new artwork. No release date has been confirmed just yet, but The Sect is aiming for a spring release, complete with an exclusive interview with the director.



So, what are you thoughts on this Shameless news? Let us know your thoughts below...

The celebrations aren't over just yet either. Keep an eye out next Monday (7th March) for another Shameless announcement. A very, very exciting
film!

Just yesterday I was thinking, 'When are Shameless going to release anything else on Blu-ray?'

Anyway, cool announcement. I've never seen the film but I love Argento and it's one I've been curious about for a while.

I like Shameless but it seems there's always a major flaw with each of their discs. I own three of the four Blu-rays they've already released. The New York Ripper is cut (admittedly not their fault) and the attempts to mask the cuts are pretty terrible, Cannibal Holocaust has mediocre picture quality and Four Flies on Grey Velvet has that bizarre audio glitch. I do want to see them do well because they're an indie label with the rights to some great films. I just think they need to step up their game.

I'll probably pick this one up over Code Red's release. Will probably wind up being cheaper (even to import it) and easier to get ahold of. We'll see when it gets closer to the release date though.
You mean the movie lied?!

Yep, and it could destroy your speakers (no joke). The Koch release, whilst not perfect is much much better.

Generally speaking, the English DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 is very strong. In fact, its dynamic amplitude is amongst the best I've heard on a Blu-ray release of a film from the '70s. During the short rehearsal sessions, for instance, the music has excellent depth and energy. There is no strong background hiss to report in this review either. This being said, there are a couple of volume fluctuations that should have been addressed. The most problematic ones are at the end of the film, during the crash scene. For a short period of time, the sound gets surprisingly loud; there are high-frequency distortions and even a couple of dangerous sound spikes as well. Interestingly enough, the distortions are not present on the Italian DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track. It is also worth mentioning that there are a few small portions of Italian dialog throughout the film where in addition to the volume fluctuations there are also small pops and cracks. Despite the issue described above, however, the audio treatment also represents a major upgrade in quality.

I wish there was a composite, using the Shameless audio track outside of the audio glitch at the end, combined with as much HD footage as possible. The Koch video with the Shamless audio track would be ideal, if not for the fact that they (Koch) decided to exclude some HD footage in favor of VHS quality footage because they apparently didn't want to change sources in the middle of a cut.
Wanted:
Criterion: 'The Third Man' Digipak (do NOT need discs or booklets)
Studio Canal Collection Nordic Edition slipcovers for digibook releases
Alliance Canada HANNA SteelBook (clean BACK without dents or scratches)

Can't wait. Hope it's much cheaper than the Japanese release.

When Camera Obscura released their excellent dvd edition, they stated that there were no suitable materials for a HD release, unfortunately.
