I BLOODY MISSED IT AND CAN'T SEE THE REPEAT!!!!!!!!! This is not fair ... but perhaps means i can be spoiler free for the film ... so all is not lost.

And the devils eyebrows :lol: And the legs bits - so many gems.

The story that stuck with me was Jeremy saying how his girlf saw a business woman doing what a bear does in the woods. So bizarre!!!!

Help! Has anyone else got the Tigon box set? Can you tell me if the quality of your Witchfinder General DVD is completely rubbish? It lurches from quite good to bad quality then back to good again in various places on the DVD. I'm worried it's just a fault on mine.

Its deliberate. They have put in material from the film which was cut by the British censor, but its terrible quality compared to the rest of the film, it looks like it was taped off Channel Five.

REALLY??? That was the stuff that is censored? I should have listened to the commentary shouldn't I? Does it explain about it there?

I've not listened to it. But I know from having the sold seperately DVD of it. It was advertised on the back that it was the full length 'continental' version 'but due to the nature of the recovered material viewers may notice a variation in quality of the film' (or something).

Oh cool. Thanks Stonesy!

One thing that struck me about the Tigon Box set - watching "The Body Stealers" - the first bit (with the empty parachute) it comes up:

GEORGE SANDERS and MAURICE EVANS in...

Maurice Evans???

I watched Witchfinder General last night. Its a cowboy film really. There isn't a commentary (Probably because most of the key players are dead) but there is an option on the menu to watch the original cut without the taped off channel five bits.

I LOVED W.G. It's so grubby and gritty. And violent! It's probably my favourite of the Tigon collection.

I've watched them all now. Virgin witch is the worst. I quite liked the Beast from the Cellar.

[Tiptoes into thread.]

I looked on Play.com for the BoSC DVD, & I've found it, but under the "special features" menu it doesn't mention anything about a commentary from the Gents.

Am I missing something?

Hi Bex. I think the LofG commentray is only on the DVD included in the boxset.

Annoyingly, I bought a copy of BOSC in a sale before I knew about the collection (it was reviewed in Empire but I must've missed it). Anyway, I took it back (shh!) and have ordered the collection off Play.
