    I don't like the tag line very much.I guess for an American it's not even funny (in British "whores" is pronounced "haws")

    It's uncut and has the "dark color timing" present in most releases except the Austrian/German DVDs:

    I'm convinced this is the wrong color timing and prefer the scenes taking place during dawn instead of night...

    I still need to watch Torso but I guess I'll rather find myself another version or wait till probably BU re-releases it. That cover and tagline is just dreadful!

    When I first read the tagline I thought this was a made up joke - My first reaction: "What the ......"
    but dang if it didnt make me laugh

    It will be interesting to see how this dvd will compare to the current uwe release thats out there now.

    That cover sure is awful. When I pulled this up at amazon uk to try and order a copy, I thought it had been hacked as that looked like a joke to me. I just sort of backed away slowly. I am kind of surprised it's legit.

    Is there a good DVD of Torso, one that is genuinely thought of as the best or definitive version? I am wanting to get myself a copy and all of the information is confusing at best.

    the sound on thi9s release is apparantly full of hisses and drop outs, bought phantom of death from shameless and never again, will I buy blind from them . That said AWE from scandinavia has a great release of TORSO.

    I bought the DVD last week! The sound isn't great as noted in one of the earlier posts. Alot of hissing in the quieter scenes! Picture isn't too great either. Not the worst release of this sort of old film, but not brilliant. The No Shame R1 release of Martino's Curse of the Scorpion's Tail was better in quaity stakes and a better film all in all. In the end TORSO didn't impress so I've got in on Ebay at the moment for a good price if anyones interested:p

    Thanks for the information on that DVD. I guess I am glad that the cover was so very bad that it scared me off a purchase.

    I will try and look for another release.
