    I hadn't seen this posted yet, but I know there's other fans of this movie here so I wanted to let everyone know.

    The only thing that worries me is that Artisan is putting this out and their track record with OAR lately hasn't been great. I'm hoping this disc will be in widescreen.

    This film was originally shot for theatrical release, but aired first on cable. I think there was an OOP Polygram DVD that was 1.33:1 so I'm hoping this new disc will be widescreen.

    Great movie with a stunning performance by Linda Fiorentino.

    It's already up for pre-order at DVD Empire, but no specs are listed.

    Well, we can hope it is OAR, and anamorphic.
    As far as the original release, I have seen
    The Last Seduction on DVD up for auction
    at eBay a few times, and it always looked like a
    non-bootleg to me.
    I got Apartment Zero on DVD under similar
    circumstances: found it on eBay, discovered Laserlight
    had released it (a legit company that usually handles
    "public domain" titles like early Hitchcock), and then
    it got pulled over rights issues.
    I have been waiting for the release for sooo long,
    I keep watching Dahl's other films thinking, "Why is
    his best work still not on DVD?"
    regards,
    Mark

    I'm fairly sure the Last Seduction has never had a DVD release. It was announced by Polygram just before their library was bought out by MGM, Universal, USA, etc.

    The Last Seduction is currently available in anamorphic widescreen from R4 Australia and R2 France. Unless there is some indication that the upcoming R1 release will be a SE, there is no reason not to get it from R4/R2.

    Ted-
    Unless of course you don't own a region-free player,
    which most don't.

    Jodee,

    I've had my player since Sept 97 and being a particular fan of this movie, I know it was never released. I hope Artisan does it justice.

    The UK R2 release is also a plain disk but is anamorphic 1.78 widescreen.
    This is very unusual for Carlton who normally only release p/s and is part of their Silver Collection of budget titles so is available here for under USD15.

    I picked up the UK R2 release at HMV for less than £9. Movie only, but no complaints.

    As far as non-availability of multi-region players goes, well, that depends on where you live:

    Richer Sounds in the UK sells chipped players retail at a very reasonable price.

    Ted- [​IMG] (Regions be damned! Now can we get everything
    on NTSC inteaed of PAL and SECAM???)
    RE: Amazon
    According to them and IMDB, Apartment Zero
    was never on DVD, and I was hesitant about buying a
    non-legit DVD on eBay....and IMDB (and Amazon) were wrong.
    (ANd I have usually noticed that they list OOP titles as
    being on DVD, even if they are no longer available from
    retailers.
    Still, I never have actually seen the DVD for
    The Last Seduction, so it could all be
    delusion on my part.

    Since when did Artisan get any of the old Polygram titles? I assumed this was going to be an MGM release.
