Those are dreadful things. I've skipped so many boxsets in HMV because they've dented the edges. Surely there is something less destructive they could use...?

Are they using these on Phenomena?

I haven't seen any up 'ere... probably because we wear T shirts all year round

I blame the Southerners and their 'big coats'.

Not in Liverpool, they have those clear plastic security stickers with the magnetic strip underneath, I think some shops are using them though, they're usually reserved for box sets.

Yeah, I saw a few Phenomena sets in Sunderland this morning.

But the Phantasm set had a spider on it, can't imaging anyone would want to buy that now.

It was tighter than a thong on a fat lass

I got my copy this morning through the post from HMV, 99.99% minty-fresh. I'm not sure if I'll crack into it just yet, I might see if they release a cheaper version and pick it up in an offer (like I did with Videodrome). I knew I'd regret not picking it up and missing out on a cut or two.

Phenomena isn't really my cup of tea. I've always hoped it would it would be an adult fairy tale with lovely Jennifer Connelly, like an adult Labyrinth. It probably doesn't help that it hasn't been well presented in the past, so I'll have to give it another go.

Thanks for this. Just had a copy from them dispatched.

So I think I'll finally spin this up tonight. The big question I have for you guys: which version should I watch. Obivously not the Creepers version, but between the Italian version and the International cut, which one should I go with?

IMO the Italian version, it's the original cut of the film as made by Argento. I always feel that the original, intended cut of a film should be experienced first and then you switch to alternate cuts if you find the original lacking.

I thought there was something said about Argento coming to prefer the shorter 110 minute International Cut? Something to do with that being the reason he recorded the commentary track for it...
Wanted:
Criterion: 'The Third Man' Digipak (do NOT need discs or booklets)
Studio Canal Collection Nordic Edition slipcovers for digibook releases

It is a tighter cut. Nothing missing in the way of gore, etc just a trimming of scenes that in fairness do lag a bit.

To my knowledge Argento has never made any statements of preference or officialised any shorter cut of any of his films, it's just fans feeling they need to justify watching a shorter edits of his films made by distributors. Just like the many folk who claim that Argento created the shorter international cut of Deep Red himself, well there's no evidence of that.

Well, he made the commentary for the US Roan laserdisc, and that's the only cut they were releasing. I've read that the 116 cut is Argento's preferred version (example: here), but I'm not sure where that info's originally sourced from.

Yeah it's old info that to my knowledge has never been confirmed or corroborated, that DVDBeaver seems to be quoting Troy Howarth and I know he made such a comment back in 2005 in this thread, but it's clear he's not particularly confident in the veracity of his sources when challenged in that thread, but maybe he's since learned more and DVDBeaver are quoting him from a more recent posting/article/book? Or does he reiterate this in his audio commentary for the Arrow BD? (Still not explored the extras yet).

I'm gonna throw this question out there on facebook because I've got a tiny smattering of experts on european cinema in my friends list (some are friends of bonafide Argento experts so maybe they can pick it up and get some info for me! ).
