I was asking because the uk dvd is transfered from a vhs but is cropped.
Glad to hear this. I think that it's surely worth the purchase just to have Curtins on DVD and in my collection.
Going to keep my VHS. Just cant justify upgrading for something only marginally better.
There is a lot of head room on this release, which leads me to believe it's open matte. If you have any screenshots from the UK DVD, I'd be glad to compare them for you.
I didn?t buy a copy of the uk edition because some folks said it was cropped.
They said that many scenes cut the bodies of some actors.
Can you tell me if horizontaly the bodies seem cut.
If don?t, then I?ll pick this up.

I took this shots from the movie that?s on youtube, since some folks say it?s from the uk print.
You can see the cropping on the right side.
Definitely not the same print.
It?s open matte right. I?ll order it.
You'll probably be seeing this in the $5 dumpbin at Wal-Mart soon. I found two other of these Echo Bridge "Midnight Horror Collection" DVD Quad-features last evening.
I've always heard there were rights problems with this film and that it was made with tax shelter money.Anybody know the true story as to why this film has never had a truly solid DVD release ?
Synapse has once talked with the director but they don?t recall why they didn?t move forward with the business.

I think the tax shelter money story came from Code Red. They also told us Final Exam was owned by the mafia, remember?
I don't know why Curtains never got a truly solid DVD release but when you read stories like the one about The Nesting (the guy who owns the rights won't license it, and is saving the title for his son until he is grown up or something) it just makes you wonder.
I love the music and atmosphere in CURTAINS. Great shot above of the opening titles. The cropped titles is also on my Vestron VHS.
Yeah that's pretty much where you will see it soon in a dump.
Cheaper than $5.
I can assure you the Canadian theatrical rights are still in place for the film as I've secured them for a screening and screened my 35mm print of it at a local theatre earlier this year. So unless it's an issue with the rights holders specifically for DVD, that'd be the case, other then that there should be no problems.
Sure, if you want all those other crappy films to go with it. :evil:
Glad to hear it,I'm just baffled as to why a title that has been so frequently requested has never had more than a marginal DVD release.In truth it wasn't even the easiest title to get during the VHS days.
Thanks for the info !
I saw it at Wallmart for 5.00 bucks
Saw it at Wal-Mart last night with another Midnight horror collection. Picked up both.
