Excellent DVD quality

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I am writing this review mainly for someone who might be wondering if the quality of this DVD is good or not. Evidently, the quality of two other older Bronson films,specifically Honor Among Thieves and Cold Sweat, is very poor on DVD. This is not the case with Someone Behind the Door. The DVD quality is excellent and the packaging is top of the line with photos from the film itself on front and back of the DVD case. Someone put alot of work into this DVD and it is well worth purchasing. After a dismal experience with another seller, I ordered my copy from Amazon.com and received it within three days and in perfect condition. I hope this review helps you."
A delightful psychological thriller

"I actually originally picked up Someone Behind The Door on VHS for 99 cents. I was a huge Bronson fan and said "what the hell" and got it. The title and cover did not make the film too appealing, but I was actually taken by total surprise by the film. Fans of Bronson's action films, don't expect the same here. This is more of a thought provoking thriller. What got me the most is the great performances by Bronson, Perkins, and Bronson's then wife . The story centers on brain sergon Anthony Perkins finding amnesia victim Bronson. Perkins takes him in for care and somehow convices him to murder his wife. The ending is spactacular. Smartly written and moves at a brisk pace. Though this is one of Bronson's more obsecure films, it well worth for fans to check out. This one his rarities that he made while in Italy. The DVD itself is also of very high quality, which is a surprise for such a rare movie."
IF YOU ONLY LIKE BRONSON'S ACTION MOVIES, DO NOT WATCH THIS!
MICHAEL TAYLOR | RICHMOND, VA USA | 08/28/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)
"A NEUROSURGEON [THE LATE GREAT ANTHONY PERKINS] ALLOWS A POTENTIALLY MURDEROUS AMNESIAC [THE LATE GREAT CHARLES BRONSON] TO STAY IN HIS HOME. UNLIKE MANY OTHER CHARLES BRONSON MOVIES, IT MAKES YOU WANNA THINK. THE ACTING IS GREAT AND THE STORY IS INTRIGUING. IF YOU ONLY LIKE BRONSON MOVIES LIKE ''DEATH WISH'' OR ''ACT OF VENGEANCE'', THEN THIS MOVIE IS DEFINITELY NOT FOR YOU. BUT IF YOU LIKE PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLERS, THEN THIS IS A GREAT MOVIE FOR YOU TO WATCH."
Mislabled 16:9 Widescreen
John Kelley | Hazlet, NJ USA | 05/05/2008
(2 out of 5 stars)
"The LionsGate version of this title is clearly labeled "16:9 Widescreen" in one location and also has a large logo on the the back of the cover which states - (16x9 WIDESCREEN 1.78:1 DVD SCREEN FORMAT). However, the actual dvd is presented in a letterboxed 1.85:1 format without anamorphic enhancement. The LionsGate version is still the only version of this film worth having on DVD but there is no excuse for the false advertising."
