      So does this have the 1 sec breast staking added shot (the previously BBFC cut ) and the other BBFC cuts reinstated?

        It does have the Valerie van Ost staking, as far as I can tell it's the complete version..

        What else do you think was missing?

          I thought it looked very nice and crisp, Paul (including Valerie's staking).

            Quite a nice review of it here. http://thedigitalbits.com/item/the-s...acula-2018-brd

            When my Blu-Ray arrived we watched my Laserdisc of it which registered at 425 lines resolution projected as usual on our 8ft screen. As soon as the Blu-Ray hit the white screen it blew everything else out of the water a pretty amazing experience for me.

            Yes the stake out sequence is in and the film is complete. As mentioned before the boys look great in this one for me anyway and it so brings back memories sat next to Dad watching it back in the day all those years ago with the old Philips 1500 VCR with its Teak casing and me switching those pesky 60 minutes chunks of tapes over to record it. It's good that these British films can evoke such fond memories for us...

              The BBFCmade cuts to the opening sacrifice scene, 2 staking scenes and the electrocution of a guard (the proposed cuts to the shooting of Torrence were never made). For the video release the same cut print was submitted and cut by a further 1 sec to remove a shot of Jane's exposed breast being pierced with a stake.

                  Any extras included? Freddie Jones and Joanna Lumley commentary would be too much ro expect, of course

                    Apart from reinstated nudity, no extras, I'm afraid.

                      After the decades of waiting I'm just happy we have it again and looking so fine.

                      These are MOD made on demand titles from the archive so will be produced in limited numbers. W

                        Such a shame. I realise these things are driven by sales numbers but are constantly letting opportunities slip through our fingers

                          So I suppose you could say that that particular version was only second breast !

                              It does look better on a smaller screen, I must say. Tried it on my 55" tv and it was quite presentable, but not as good as it should be..

The Trailer was in far better nick than the actual film, which is very soft focused, especially in the first 25 mins or so. Also around the time Peter meets up with Freddy Jones, the sound goes slightly out of sync for the rest of the film, which is bloody annoying. Some of the colours are not the best either, the greens are notably washed out. So overall a bit disappointing, still a better copy than the poor dvd that was out, but I'm afraid my VHS tape is so far the best copy out there, as the sound being out maybe a bit much to live with..
                                I see a couple of reviews on Amazon USA saying the same - that the image is very soft/out of focus at times, and that also there is a lip-sync problem (which is very annoying).
                                Seems maybe the discs vary if others on here have had no problem..?!
