I notice that some internet sites - notably Rewind - are now claiming that the original Carlton UK dvd of VAMPIRE CIRCUS was in fact cut. The BBFC only lists cuts for the original theatrical release, stating that all subsequent video/dvd releases were passed with no cuts made. Bearing in mind that Rewind is a site that sometimes raises more questions about dvds than it actually answers, can anyone here shed more light on the claim that the Carlton disc does not restore footage originally cut at the behest of the UK censor in the early '70s? I assume that the more recent UK dvd from Strawberry Media used the same master.
BTW, has anyone here got anything to say about the US Synapse blu ray/dvd combo pack? Some reviewers claim it's much too dark and that the Carlton disc is actually a better way to see the film.
