This is one of those key films in Italian horror cinema. DVD also includes trailers for some other Italian films and some of these are also widescreen. Yes it is a DVDr but they give you a good product at a decent price. Now if only someone, or they, would do an equally good version of the follow up film by this same team THE GHOST.
I like the movie and the "Doctor" played here is one sick puppy. He can't stand the idea of his beloved Margaret being buried in the ground, so what does he do? He goes to the cemetery where she is about to be buried by the caretaker and literally gets her body back out of the coffin, fondling it before he does.
As I have stated in my other reviews, "Olive Films" has zero special features and that is sad, to say the least.
I am sure there is a theatrical trailer out there for this movie if they looked for it AND the movie runs (76:48) in length from opening to end.
So any of you thinking of buying this edition, it looks good, but it is not the extended version of 83 minutes as some reviewers have stated.
The only features the MENU has to offer are CHAPTER SEARCH and ENGLISH SUBTITLES.
Comes with an Olive Films Mini catalog inside also.
I would look around for a good deal on this one, if you really want it on HD Blu-ray. The print does look good on the Ultra 4K TV, but it isn't as sharp as some of her black and white movies on Blu-ray.
Technically, a surprisingly clear DVD transfer by Video Dimensions. The aspect ratio seems to be widescreen. This feature runs for 83 minutes as advertised. Two or three scenes seem to be cut in their original length, so we may have an extended version in the future. Audio is in English and no subtitles are provided. As extras, you will get about 6 trailers of other b-horror movies, including Doctor Butcher M.D.

The description on the DVD outlines the story, which is remarkably frank for the time (or even now), but nothing will prepare you for the oppressive atmosphere the film creates. This is 'proper' horror cinema. The acting is played straight which adds to the doomladen effect. I don't wish to give anything away, so will simply note that one scene is genuinely horrifying in this very disturbing movie.
