I first picked up the UK region 2 release of Amityville II & III. - They are pan & scan - No trailers - Violence is edited out of Amityville II!! (The killing of the family members is noticeably trimmed) - Poor transfers, muddy sound - Requires Region 2 and PAL capable player AVOID I did a search and saw that there were German and French region 2 discs available too. I picked up the German ones, and was quite pleased: - Widescreen 1.85 ratios -Trailers -German 5.1, German 2.0, and English 2.0 audio tracks -Violence is intact in Amityville II -Sharp picture, clearer sound - very nice transfer -Amityville III's Widescreen transfer is as eye-openingly beautiful to look at as the Friday the 13th part III DVD transfer was - The same print was likely used, because I saw dust-bunnies and scratches on the exact same shots - Requires Region-2 and PAL capable players - Sucky coverart; I shall be designing custom matching covers for Amityville I-III DVDs soon RECOMMENDED I'm not sure how the Region 2 France DVDs compare, but they're listed as Pan-and-Scan, so that cannot be a good thing. Here's hoping for a region 1 release of these films, OAR. Amityville III in 3-D would be difficult, because it used the polarized 3-D effect which requires a special projector and screen.
