    Amazon and DvdEmpire state is 1:78.

    I have a VHS 2:35 copy.

    I hope it's a mistake!

    It was shot in Dyaliscope 2.35:1. Hopefully the specs are mistaken.

    Image's site says the aspect ratio will be 2.00:1. Better, but I wonder why it's not 2.35:1?
    Notice that Francis Ford Coppola's name is on the cover... and his Apocalypse Now was also trimmed to 2.00:1. Coincidnece?

    Is it truly 2.00:1?
    Nevertheless, I cannot pass this up - it sounds like an amazing out-there movie - right up my alley, so to speak.
    I has never heard of Has until today. The Hour-Glass Sanitorium also sounds like an interesting prospect.
    Great stuff.
