Default Weekly Comp - Four Flies On Grey Velvet - 22/01/2012 - FINISHED

Hi everyone!

I'm putting up this week's competition a day early as I might be busy tomorrow and would rather have a comp running a day longer than a day shorter. Anywho, here's the brilliant prize up for grabs this week!

“THE RAREST OF DARIO ARGENTO’S GIALLO THRILLERS FINALLY COMES TO DVD/BLU-RAY – A TWISTED TALE OF TORTURED PARANOIA AND HOMICIDAL FRENZY.” – ALAN JONES.



Forty years after its release and twenty years after the film disappeared from the public eye, Shameless Screen Entertainment is releasing the first ever worldwide Blu-ray of Dario Argento’s lost masterpiece, Four Flies On Grey Velvet and, also for the first time ever, in the original version in which it was made. This special 40th Anniversary Edition has been fully remastered in HD from the original negative and includes four inserts of previously missing footage known amongst Argento fans as the legendary “missing forty seconds”. Additionally, the original pristine English audio has been remastered exclusively for this Shameless release from the original magnetic soundtrack and is being made available for the first time since the film’s initial theatrical release in the 1970s.

Described by DVD Times as “essential viewing”, this final instalment in what is unofficially referred to as Argento’s Animal Trilogy (following “The Bird With The Crystal Plumage” and “The Cat O’ Nine Tails”) is a classic of the giallo genre, featuring music by Oscar-winning composer Ennio Morricone (The Untouchables; The Mission; The Good, The Bad And The Ugly) and starring Michael Brandon (Dempsey And Makepeace), Mimsy Farmer (The Black Cat; More), Jean-Pierre Marielle (Micmacs; The Da Vinci Code), Bud Spencer (They Call Me Trinity) and Francine Racette (Au Revoir Les Enfants; The Disappearance).

Going about his everyday life of band rehearsals and socialising with his wife, Nina (Farmer), and their hip friends, rock drummer Roberto Tobias (Brandon) notices he is constantly being followed by a strange man dressed in black. He decides to turn the tables on his stalker and follows him into an abandoned theatre, where a confrontation between the two ends with Roberto accidentally stabbing the man, who falls into the orchestra, apparently dead. Suddenly, a flash of light alerts Roberto to a figure in the upper wings of the theatre, where a mysterious person wearing a bizarre puppet mask and brandishing a camera has been taking photos of the fatal struggle. Roberto flees the scene, but the next day receives the dead man’s ID card in the post. Naturally assuming it has been sent by the unknown witness, he becomes immediately concerned by the lack of any blackmail demands and is haunted by the question of what it is the masked figure wants from him. Roberto’s fear and paranoia increase, and the mystery deepens, when his and Nina’s housemaid is found murdered in a local park and it becomes apparent that an intruder has had access to their apartment.

Four Flies On Grey Velvet
(cert. 15) will be released on Blu-ray (24.99) and DVD (15.99) by Shameless Screen Entertainment on 30th January 2012.

Special Features

- Introduction to the film by Luigi Cozzi.

- New, exclusive and extensive recent interview on the making of Four Flies On Grey Velvet with writer and assistant director Luigi Cozzi.

- Original English audio remastered in HD exclusively for this Shameless release from the original magnetic soundtrack and available for the first time since the film’s original theatrical opening in the 1970s.

- Shameless re-build edit of the complete version of the film including four inserts of previously missing footage known amongst Argento fans as the legendary “missing forty seconds” (the inserts are in Standard-Definition quality). The Blu-ray will allow for seamless branching of the four inserts giving viewers two versions of the film: one all HD without the re-inserted scenes and one longer version including the inserts.

- Restoration of all individual damaged frames, most notably with respect to the removal of the black diagonal frame line (caused by the film jumping the high speed camera gate) in the final car crash sequence.

- Optional Italian audio version in HD with English subtitles.

- Italian and English trailers.

- Alternate English opening and closing credits.

- Shameless Trailer Park (Blu-ray only).



Both the DVD and the Blu-Ray are yours to win - the three winners will be able to pick whichever format they prefer


But how do you win? Well....

Below are four seperate sheets of grey velvet. Each one has four images on and fly on each of those. Except one of the flies is a wasp...and not a fly at all. So, it's your job to figure out why the image with the wasp on is the odd one out! It's as straight forward as that!

Think you know the answers? Then PM (Private Message) me them and we'll take it from there. Anyone can enter, all over the world. There's no limit to the amount of guesses you make.


Those who get all 4 correct will be put into a hat and three names will be randomly selected to win the prize.

BOO-YAH!

So, here's those all important pictures...

4)



Good luck everyone!

This competition will end next Sunday (the 29th).

Kyle
