There are no bonus features but its 4:3 unmatted so retains the image at the top and bottom of the screen. Vipco are/were notorious for sticking out whatever print they got handed which led to some awful releases. However. A lot of the later period films from Italy had decent prints so Stagefright, house of lost souls, ghosthouse, sweet house of horrors ect. are all pretty decent releases. Especially given how cheap they can be bought for.

In terms of DVD editions this is the very best...

Stage Fright..Michelle Soavi..Uncut Version..: Amazon.co.uk: Film & TV

It cuts through the debate on which version (widescreen, fullscreen) to watch by providing both.

Thats the beauty of cheap labels. They released the film as they received it. They couldn't afford to reformat films. Take Vipco's widescreen releases. Back then no one had widescreen tv's so the letterbox's looked rather small but at least they were in the correct aspect ratio and look fantastic on today's tv's.

That's a little like when I used to watch films on VHS and had no idea that what aspect ratio even meant, so bought the full frame video of Pulp Fiction, which I preferred the picture filled my TV screen and wasn't a narrow strip in the middle!

I'm STILL not quite sure what apect ratio means. All I know is I get a little bit pissed off when I put Blu-Ray's of older films on and end up with black bars on the left and right of the screen!! They could at least give you a choice, but not of the time it can't be sorted, so I'm stuck with it!

The aspect ratio is just the size of the picture.

Use your TV to zoom in on it then, I have no idea why the black bars bother you though.
