      Although it’s not great Argento (for me the last one in that category would be OPERA), SLEEPLESS is the last one he made that I like enough to occasionally return to it, even if it has some goofy elements I find worthy of comparison to NEW YORK RIPPER.

      I will definitely check this one out when it becomes available to me.

          Well, that was all a bit inconsequential. I mean, it's not bad, but just so slight. I really hated the photography, another one of these modern keep the middle in focus but blur the fuck out of everything else things. The music annoyed the shit out of me, mostly out of place and not in a crazy Goblin-like way. I liked the central relationship calling back to Cat o'Nine Tails, but it's probably not wise to recreate one of the set pieces from Suspiria when you no longer have the budget or the skills. There's one left field bit of craziness at the start of the third act, but that was a bit fumbled. I have a hunch that the script was hacked apart to meet the obviously low budget and that this was far better on paper. It could have been worse.

            I started to watch the R2 DVD and it doesn't have any English subtitle options! I went to Diabolik and they've changed the listing to include that it DOES NOT have English subs, only the Blu-ray does. It's been marked down to $4.99 whereas I had to pay $20. I feel a bit ripped off. Would you ask for some sort of credit?

            Is the movie hard to follow if I were to try and watch it w/o subs or is it too dialogue-heavy to even attempt it?
            Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

              It's not a complicated movie but still I'd wait for subs. Visually the movies not amazing so you won't be getting much off it that way. Plus, its probably the very last new Argento you'll ever get so best to watch it with dialogue. Just out of respect for the great man.

                Just wanted to give an update on this. I contacted Diabolik and they offered store credit plus shipping for the useless disc. Not sure if anybody else purchased this, but it's worth contacting them for a refund.

                  So, is this on Shudder in the states yet? I re-upped for a year on a great promo deal, but I can't find it on the site here in Canada, there's no listing for it even as Coming Soon.

                    It's not on Shudder in the UK yet either. I think I read somewhere they were going to be putting it out in autumn/winter, but could be wrong on that...

                      Thanks, it's probably just what you said. PTSD from living in one of the most fucked-up licensing environments in the movie world kicks in quick sometimes.
