    Apparently so... though I'd be quite shocked if it came out before the end of this year. It's probably taking the backburner to Suspiria.

    Well, there's absolutely no difference in pinks. Shot #12 is about exactly the same in both Arrow and Synapse.

    In shot #6, the greens are much nicer in Synapse's version but there seems to be a definite blue tint over the frame. So, skin tone looks better to me in Arrow's transfer.

    In shot #3, the greens and blues are bright and gorgeous in Synapse's version. But they're still nice in Arrow's version as well. The blues are the biggest difference.

    Shot #14 pretty obviously goes to Synapse. There seems to be a very yucky curtain of light brown/yellowish off-white over all the colors and the general daylight in Arrow's version. Like you're watching the movie through someone's dirty screen-door.

    Same with #13.

    #9 is a nighttime shot and again it looks like Synapse has a blue tint over all the colors. Yellows look identical.

    #16 looks almost identical. There's still a kind of screen over Arrow's but it doesn't change anything except Daria Nicolodi's face.

    Huge blue tinting on Synapse's on #5, so it looks more moon-licked and fantastical. More 80's Music Video. But Arrow's looks more natural. All colors look better on Arrow's here.

    #8 is another dirty-screen shot for Arrow. It looks pretty ugly. Synapse's is much better.

    In shot #15, the blood is brighter in Synapse's. Jane's dress looks much more natural. Colors are darker all around (murkier) in Arrow's. But, the blood might look a little better if darker is preferable.

    I'm really surprised there's such a stark contrast between day scenes and that after the scene of John Saxon waiting to meet Jane, suddenly any day scene would look better on Arrow's. Most colors are brighter on Synapse's.

    Maybe it's worth its own thread, but Synapse has announced on Facebook the street date for the other Sorceress:

    I'm guessing Julie Strain doesn't remember a thing so they didn't have anything with her. :(

    I grabbed the Tenebrae set from Synapse at Cinema Wasteland a few weeks ago. I'm really impressed with the package, honestly. A lot of the cleanup they did is also not going to be noticeable in a few random screencaps. If you look at the liner notes that come with the Synapse set, there were a lot of instances where DNR applied to the Wild Side master caused random hiccups where things disappeared. The detail shot in the booklet shows the main character's thumb disappearing for a frame. They went frame-by-frame and fixed those errors because the licensors would not allow them to do a new scan from the negative.

    I don't have the Arrow release to do a full comparison, but if Synapse took the time to fix the faulty master and Arrow didn't, Synapse wins the race for me.

    On the other hand, and most importantly, let's just be glad two labels are doing nice Blu-Ray packages of Argento classics.

    I received mine last week from Deep Discount for $14.38 shipped. That was from back when they had a sale though.

    Log into Importcds. Add two items to your shopping cart where the total just over $25. Wait a day and you'll receive a $5 off 25$ coupon. Last week I used that to get SORCERESS for under $15.
