Both versions look awful, but Phantom... on the other hands looks very nice! As I've never seen it, I might add it to my collection, I bet it's crap though regardless of how much Demoncrat enjoyed it the other week

Lets put it this way. It's better than The Card Player.

I have the Tartan dvd of Phantom.

A back-handed compliment if I ever saw one

It's my favourite version of Phantom.

If those two Argento bds are region b friendly, I'll pick them up. I've currently got both films on Austrian and German blu-rays but I'd certainly be up for an upgrade. My current Card Player is decent but my bd of Phantom is too dark and has a bit of a teal look. btw I hope the Scorpion Phantom blu-ray will have an Italian track with English subtitles as I think the film plays much better in Italian (it fixes Julian Sands rather hammy performance imo).

Phantom i just have on uk dvd as it's apparently "uncut", not quite worth an upgrade sadly. I havent watched much Argento in ages, got the Opera bd sitting gathering dust on my shelf along with cult films Suspiria! Gotta have an awesome double bill soon!

Today I was disappointed to find out that both Scorpion's new Card Player and Phantom releases are region A locked. I still don't have a multi region bd player and a few months back, I chose to invest my spare cash in a 4K UHD Sony player instead (pleasingly 4K UHD discs don't have region codes). Shame that Scorpion now region lock their blu-rays.
