Trivia

To make the Edgar Wallace series more "up to date" and attractive for the box office, Producer Horst Wendlandt measured to start shooting the future films either in color or in anamorphic widescreen. He decided to go for widescreen as shooting the films in color still didn't seem necessary to make them more appealing to 1963's German audiences and he also felt it would defeat the low budget-concept of the series. It was not until The Hunchback of Soho (1966), that color was introduced to the series. See more »

Sinister video quality is excellent
19 January 2009 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The Sinister Cinema DVD merits a few remarks. Sinister Cinema uses the same template for it's budget packaging (the only items that change are the film title and a small frame from the film). The film is transferred to DVD-R and usually contains a trailer as one extra bonus. Based on this I was not expecting much regarding the quality of the film transfer. Was I surprised! The transfer is struck from a beautiful widescreen black and white print. It keeps the German language titles and credits which is a nice touch. The audio is up to par with the print quality. The English language dub is also done quite well and does not detract from the original intent of the film. I say that Sinister Cinema's release is miles above the Edgar Wallace films that Something Weird Video is currently releasing. I have several and while the quality is good, it pales in comparison to SC's release. Many years ago I was a customer of Sinister Cinema when all they offered were VHS dubs. I remembered getting a copy of Spider Baby from them that also was excellent quality. Glad they haven't changed. Based upon this experience I have ordered 6 more Edgar Wallace films and can't wait to see them. Check out their website for some incredible catalog titles. I plan on backfilling my collection with more of these hard to find items.
