    Thank you for the excellent review Matt. I am really looking forward to seeing this movie again as I have fond memories of it from the 70's.

    In what alternative universe was this movie ever shown in the 1:66 ratio ? 1:66 basically did not exist as a theatrical ratio in the 70's and later in North America (outside of "art' theatres).

    Am so glad I took a chance on this "unknown-to-me" title when it was first announced. I look forward to relishing it!!

    This film is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. I own the DVD and I'm glad to see it released on Blu-ray.

    It is listed on IMDB as 1:66 ratio and it looked good on the Arrow Blu-ray I got. I think the U.S. version might have a more interesting commentary because the 2nd audio on the Arrow disc was lame.

    The thing I'm most excited about with the release is the isolated score; this film has a wonderful soundtrack, which I don't believe has ever been released as such.

    Nice review but is ANYONE gonna compare it to the UK release so consumers can decide which one to get ?

    The commentary on the Arrow edition is by the British comedy group The League of Gentlemen. If you don't know them or their work I can understand finding the track uninteresting. Their shows are inspired by English and American horror films and are both funny and disturbing.

    When a group of people laugh THAT loudly at there own jokes I tend to tune out. It reminded me of watching the TMZ TV show. Still, I loved the Arrow Blu-ray!

    I understand! I turned off the commentary on Dog Soldiers for the same reason. I think the cast were in the pub before hand and laughed loudly at everything, which quickly became intolerable.
