The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh

DVD DVD
Yet another new DVD image comparison has been added to the collection! This time I've taken a look at the R1 US and R2 Italian releases of The Strange Vice of Mrs. Wardh. An early NoShame Films release, the American transfer features standards conversion artefacts and contrast boosting. NoShame really ought to hire someone who actually knows what they're doing! With tools freely available online, anyone with an ounce of experience could create a far better transfer than these supposed professionals did.

View the damage for yourselves here.

  • The German-DVD titled "Der Killer von Wien" includes the PAL-Transfer, "Dark Fears"-Documentary, a 15 Minute Interview-Featurette with Music-Composer Nora Orlandi and comes in a beautiful Fold-Out including a glossy booklet with liner notes.
    It has beautiful menus and really is the best Version of that movie, BUT it only includes the germand and italian dub and german subtitles so for all of you english-speakers out there it's worthless :P

  • and also, aren't 4 points a bit harsh? the "Death Carries a Cane"-DVD from "X-Rated" looks much worse and got 2 points.

  • Hi,

    Yeah, I think 4 may be a tad harsh. I suspect I'd be willing to up it to a 5.
