The extra visual info is indeed nice. I have to say that from memory any Techicolor film has color that is more pronounced, though the colors seen are perhaps not that accurate to "real" life.

Watched the Arrow Blu last night ( well, most of it, may have seen the film too many times at this point ).

Man does it look great.  
Dare I say it's the best looking color Bava film on Blu?
If someone can put HERCULES out looking this marvelous, please, please, let it be so.

I missed the final shot but  Arrow covers it smoothly with a end title recreation and a fade to black as the score concludes.
I wish it were there, but.....it is not.

I'm just spot-checking the discs now (both BD and DVD), and they do look gorgeous.

One note--on my two decks, I can't jump between the audio tracks.  So, I have to decide right at the start whether to listen to the English audio, the Italian audio, or Tim Lucas' audio commentary track.

The Arrow Kill Baby Kill is said to be Region 2 but apparently it plays on region 1 Blu Ray. Anybody can confirm that?

I do not own the Blu but it appears to be another Arrow title that says B on the cover but is A/B from web reports.

I have the Arrow on its way from the UK.
Should be here on the 20th and I will report back when it gets here.
I hope it plays region A because that's the only thing my machine will play.

You're good, the Arrow, at least the first pressing, is region free,

Kino caps are now out and boy, their Blu looks awful.

In addition to their usual encoding fisaco, they have not color corrected the source and a sickening green hue overcasts the picture.
Arrow is hands down the best looking Bu.

Caps here, German, Arrow, Kino

Yeah, the Arrow Blu seems clearly the way to go.
