It may not be Mario Bava's most inspired film (to put it mildly), but that hasn't stopped Arrow from pulling out all the stops with this release. The Blu-ray offers a choice of three versions of the film - the original Italian cut, the export version of the same and the seven-minute shorter US edit - all handsomely restored and presented as AVC 1.74:1 1080p encodes. The LPCM 2.0 mono soundtracks are equally impressive. Arrow's typically satisfying selection of extra features include a commentary, trailers, a Bava at Work behind-the-scenes photo gallery and an interview with fellow Italian filmmaker Rugero Deodato.
