I hope the BBFC see sense and leave this one alone. It would ruin ( and stop people buying ) a cracking piece of Argento magic. C'mon Angel and vincenzo - put them right on this one

Donīt know if itīs too soon to ask...

Will Arrow use the American or the Italian print?

The Italian print has more clarity comparing to the American one but has more picture information on all sides and I think is the most beautiful of the two.

Man I am so chuffed that arrow is releasing this, I mean blue underground is phenomenal and most my dvds are bought from there but when it comes down to arrow nothing tops it, amazing artwork/posters/special features/reversible cover arts, looks like ill be snatching this right up.

My view on the film?

First hour is absolute gold, then it slowly descends into a poop storm.

The uncut Inferno is on its way to me.

Brad Stevens in The Darkside also says the cat used in that sequence wasn't real.

I watched the previously cut scenes this morning and I agree with Brad. The closeup looks like a dummy cat to me too.

I'm still undecided as to whether the cat/mouse scene would still be cut. As much as I disapprove of animal cruelty in films I would pass the scene.

Do you think the cat/chair scene would pass now, Vince, having watched it again? The BBFC passed the scene at first (cinema) but then cut it later (video).

I'm sure they will examine the scene very carefully today.

The only reason they would have cut the cat/mouse scene before is if they believed it had been orchestrated by the film crew. Difficult to say what their decision will be today. We will just have to wait and see.

I heard Arrow had picked up the rights to this a while back and I've been excruciatingly excited ever since. I've never seen it. Tried to get hold of it ages ago but it was OOT and then I just kinda gave up so I really can't wait for this!

I'm absolutely 50-50 about this and really can't make up my mind either way about it, even after watching it again. Borderline.

I can't say I like the cat/chair scene but that's more because of the way the animal is carried than the impact shot itself (which looks too rigid to be a real cat thankfully).

Yes the way the cat was being carried was cruel, you can see it struggling.

Yes it's an unpleasant (and pretty pointless) scene. The similar scene in Alice Sweet Alice (Communion) was even worse.

It's not the cruellest thing in the world, but not recommended for adult cats.

I have the old AB disc & the new(ish) Italian release on Fox, great to see it in Italian dub with Eng subs. The Italian is a great disc, a lot clearer than the AB disc & it has a different color palette (colors aren't as blown out as the AB disc) what one is correct who knows? a new print with a balance between both would be good. check out a comparison between the AB & Fox HERE

Yes it's the way one would carry a kitten perhaps but definitely not an adult cat.
