It'll be interesting to see what'll happen when we get the discs to phenomena, suspiria, and tenebre to see if they'll retain any previously existing bonus material.

personally, i'd rather take a great audio and video presentation over any amount of bonus material. and in regards to that statement, i own the synapse steelbooks to these films. I've sold my arrow steelbook on ebay once i became in possession of them.

And hell, i used to own this dvd set of the films that i bought from 800.com years ago:

No they aren't. DEMONS has a newer commentary track that's also on the Arrow Blu-ray, but the legacy DEMONS and DEMONS 2 commentaries that first appeared on the Roan LaserDiscs in the 1990s and later on the Anchor Bay DVDs are not on the Synapse steelbook Blu-rays.

OK. That makes it less unappealing, knowing that none of the other releases have that particular commentary. I thought it was included on the steelbook editions (by Synapse), but not these regular editions. So even if I were to grab the steelbooks, I'd still have to keep those Anchor Bay DVDs around for the commentary tracks.
Wanted:
Warner Bros UK 90th Anniversary slipcovers:
'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', 'The Exorcist', 'A Clockwork Orange'
Criterion: 'Chungking Express' Replacement Sleeve Insert OR Digipak, 'The Third Man' Digipak (do NOT need discs or booklets)
Studio Canal Collection Nordic Edition slipcovers for digibook releases

Whoops. I thought I had compared the two and saw they had the same participants, but I was wrong!

I just watched Demons 2.

There was a scene towards the middle where the girl that was hosting the party's parents have a discussion sitting at a bench. The picture starts shaking like crazy. Is it supposed to be like that? Pretty horrible..... I don't recall it being like that on the anchor bay dvd back in the day.

There are a handful of shots in DEMONS 2 that have this artifact and always have due to a malfunction in the camera while filming. Oddly enough, though, the shot you mention is a different take than what appeared on the older Anchor Bay DVD. On the AB DVD, the scene of the parents talking is a single medium shot. On the new HD master used for the Arrow and Synapse Blu-rays, the conversation is broken up into two different shots, the first shot being wider and having the shaking artifact before it cuts to a closer angle without the shaking. My guess is, for whatever reason, the scene was presented as two shots in the Italian version (maybe to accommodate the Italian version of the dialogue?), and one shot in the export versions, and they scanned the Italian version for this new master. I know Don May said he had to resync the English dialogue for that shot and it took a while to try and make it work.

The lack of the Italian track makes this release very unappealing...

The only version of Demons I've ever seen since the 80's is the english dubbed, so to me this was all I needed.
