Excerpt: i watch the english language the picture is amazing the sound is very good too but sometime the music is too loud there are french subtitles and it is shorter 20 mn than the italian version but the italian version have only english subtitles i looked what is different than the english version and i found the beginning not important we can see david hemmings play some jazz music on the street and after only some scenes of dialoguing with daria nicolodi not important too...
Excerpt: Still one of Argento's best. Extremely stylish, one of Goblin's best soundtracks, great performance from Hemmings. Although I'm probably one of the few who prefer the shorter version of the film. I know some great character bits are missing, but the switching between english and subtitles got on my nerves. Anyway, this disc has both so it doesn't matter what version you prefer. Picture quality and audio kick ass on both cuts.
DEEP RED from Blue Underground is a great release.

Excerpt: This is for the ENGLISH version: We just watched this for the first time ever and I really enjoyed the film. I love the cinematography and showing the killer's viewpoint. The music was great and was really loud. There seemed to be some grain intact.....or was it DNR? I wasn't sure. But overall this is a solid Blu-ray release from Blue Underground. One of Dario Argento's best IMO. Daria Nicolodi is as beautiful as ever.
Excerpt: This is the first time I've seen this film and man I didn't know what to expect. This is a solid detective/procedural who done it film noir. The score is awesome and the AQ is strong and punchy. While some facial detail is lacking in the PQ, it's largely due to the fact that the transfer was struck from a dated source, but colors are lush and the overall gritty, grimy, grindhouse cinematic look is still intact which is why I think the picture quality deserves more credit...
Excerpt: Can't say I loved the movie, went in hoping I did but just never could get into the film, some long streaches for me that just dragged on, mixed with a few awkward scene cuts just threw off the flow of the film for me. I also watched this in english dubb so that could of kilt it for me as well.
Excerpt: .. It doesn't work for me. As the Arrow one does, the Blue Underground disc featuring the same master made by italian Medusa in 2004, created from an heavily cutted negative film and completed using some discard scenes founded at Technicolor laboratories, in Rome. As Medusa says, "those scenes, already existing in the intermediate negative, was never used 'cause of their chromatic difference with the original negative".
Excerpt: If only all movies from the 70s would have a transfer like this. This is an incredible transfer from Blue Underground, with clarity, sharpness, deep colors, and beautiful contrast (while still having a very FINE layer of film grain). I saw no print damage at all. I thought Argento's Inferno transfer was great, but Blue Underground has made this a staple in how amazing a 35+ year old film can look. I was amazed. Bring on Susperia !
Excerpt: Granted, www.bluray.com is usually spot-on with their reviews in regards to video and audio quality and the like, but I have to take umbrage with this one (as well as what seems to be a few previous Blue Underground blu-ray titles). Much like BU's release of both DJANGO and INFERNO, while clarity is excellent, there is a gritty nature to the entire image.
