Blu-ray edition is the best I've seen this look

"I thought the picture quality of the bluray was beautiful, far better than the previous BU release (I won't even discuss the trauma release). Watching it on this disk was like seeing the film for the first time (not to mention how good it sounded). I came here expecting to see praises for the release, but instead I mainly see complaints about how grainy it looked.
I couldn't remember seeing any excessive grain, so I put the disk in again and still didn't see any problems. It was only when I moved 5 feet closer to the TV where I could see some grain, but even then it wasn't much and hardly enough to make the film unwatchable. I read online that part of this grain problem might be from people having the sharpness turned up on their TVs. Maybe someone who has complained about the gran could perhaps check this on their TV and see if the disk looks better with this turned off?
As long as Blue Underground continue to put out these high quality releases, I'll continue to double dip. I would recommend for anyone who is scared off by the reported problems to at least rent the disk and decide for themselves."

"Blue Underground has done another great job with this horror / suspense movie director Argento.Great plot & suspense.The movie's main character is the beautiful and young policewoman Anna Manni (played by Dario Argento's daughter - Asia Argento) who is tracking down a violent serial killer and rapist (played by Thomas Kretschmann). Her track leads her to the Uffizi museum in Florence. There however, Anna is struck by the Stendhal Syndrome, which makes her faint, when among certain works of art, like paintings and statues. Her new handicap makes it very difficult for her to track down the killer,But she did finally found him .But i found the story a bit fantasy base but common since argento directs no comments.........long live Dario..........
