Default Eaten Alive. (Death Trap)

Does anyone know if the UK re release of Tobe Hooper's Death Trap, under the title "Eaten Alive" , is any better in quality than the VIPCO release.?
I couldn't see what label it was on, as it was in a small dvd shop window and the shop was shut.
It was a UK disc though as it had the BBFC cert. and great artwork .
I really like this film , and will more than likely buy it again anyway, I was just wondering if anyone knew what the print quality was like and if it was fully uncut.

If this is the cover I'd stay well clear as Video International releases from what I've gathered are ports of VHS versions of the films.Their version of The Alchemist apparently looks awful.I'm happy enough with the Vipco release:-

Yea, thats the one Mark.
Thanks for the warning, i'll give it a miss and stick with my VIPCO releases.
It has nice cover art though.
I wish VIPCO would have used the old vhs artwork for their dvd release.
Thanks again Mark.

If you can handle multi-region, Dark Sky Films have released a cracking version

Your right Bedorca, that looks like a cracking set.
Thanks for the link, as Death Trap's legal uncut Iin the UK now, I should be ok at Customs importing that.
Thanks again Bedorca.

Have to admit I've been lucky with customs over the years easily getting hold of Caligula (Image)Emmanuelle In America (BU) & I Spit On Your Grave (Elite)Anybody here suffered at the hands of customs ?.Apart from being charged 14.00 import duty on my Rudy Ray Moore collection set from Xenon I've been lucky though I gather it's a risk ordering from EXPLOITED.

My DVDs have NEVER been seized ever since..I got ISOYG, Re-Animator and Caligula (before the two films were passed uncut by the BBFC) thru the HM customs OK! I got stung TWICE by HM customs for exceeding the UK customs limit! Most recently was in April this year!
