Yes, very thorough. I didn't know heretofore that Kermode was so down on the film, which may actually be my favourite Fulci (of those I've seen up to now). And yes, a commentary involving Calum Waddell would have been interesting.

Thanks But rather than being a part of it I'd just rather Shameless had gone a bit further and let us interview Paolo Malco and Zora Kerova!!!! The opportunity was there to do more. The stuff that is on there is the off-cuts of our Arrow interviews with Dardano Sacchetti and Antonella Fulci - as anyone who has seen City of the Living Dead (or our extensive Dardano piece on Bay of Blood) will know. We handed them an hour's worth of footage so I'm interested to see the final cut.

We also had nothing to do with the editing of this so the title blunder pointed out in the above review is not ours!

(As an aside, hope people support this release. The BBFC cut is bogus - especially given that you can now tie up a pig and kick it, not animal cruelty at all apparently - and I hope to see more Shameless on HD )

Default New York Ripper cuts

I'm going to be writing up my own review this week, but wanted to share my thoughts on the edit imposed on the death of Kitty. People might be perplexed that the BBFC targeted this particular scene, considering the explicit carnage already seen up to that point. The thing is, the BBFC are averse to naked women subjected to violence. Naked = sex, which mustn't be in the same scene as the violence lest anyone starts to get the two confused. All well and good, you might think, except that every female character killed in the film has their sexual organs (breasts, vagina) specifically targeted and brutally mutilated. But hey, that's ok because they were fully clothed at the time.

So other than that, congratulations Shameless on an exemplary blu ray. I particularly liked your dig at the censors (some prosthetics were damaged during the making of this film) and the trailer for Almost Human looks really good! I'll send a link once our review is up online.

Yeah, it's probably not one for the kids to see!
