My GOD....what a hideous, HIDEOUS COVER!!!!!!!!! The original poster artwork is iconic... don't know why they didn't use it:

I agree. The cover is super, super bad. I'm surprised it passed muster at Shout, which usually does such good work on their releases.

I'm guessing they couldn't get Bujold to sign off on her likeness appearing on the release.

Very possible - but even then, they could've done better with that cover! Theres a handful of YouTube videos featuring Herrmann's gorgeous, brilliant music and the photo is just Cliff Robertson's hand holding a photo of his wife. That would go much farther than... whatever it is they decided on here.

The blu ray I own has an even worse cover imo.

That said, the picture is quite good and the score sounds excellent imo. I can wait on this new one.

One if Depalma's worst.
Maybe if you hadn't seen VERTIGO, DIABOLIQUE et.al you wouldn't guess the ' twist ' in the first ten minutes.

Luckily, Shout always features the original poster design on the reverse of the insert, so you can flip it around and showcase that instead. smile

This Arrow Blu-ray from the UK isn't much better, although it too has a reversible cover.

I hope this Blu-Ray keeps Herrmann's original theatrical score music used during the dream sequence:

"I came back for one reason Mike." "I came back to give you a second chance to prove you love."

The music used on the DVD's was different from the theatrical release. Only the old fashioned Laser Disc's kept the original intended Herrmann score, which was much better, during this sequence.

I've never heard this before. Do we know what music is used on that DVD edit?

Below contains the original theatrical music for the film that was changed for some reason for the DVD's. You can make the comparisons.

The dreams sequence were Mike is in bed and opens his eyes to see Sandra standing before him.

The music at 6:15 is the same as the original film, but at 6:40 - 7:26 the music is changed on the DVD.
