    It was indeed. The only uncut DVD release was, I believe, the gorgeous French disc - which contained a much more handsome presentation than the US release. I think the best hope for some of these films being released on Blu-ray lies in France, where Ferrara apparently has a strong following - and the French BD release of CHINA GIRL seems to confirm this.

    Never seen the film Cat Chaser (1989), but I remember many years ago when it opened in UK cinemas and premiered on satellite TV. Another vote for a DVD/Blu-ray release of this film.

    Every time I read about one of his films there is always the
    cut /uncut issue. Poor guy. And if it's not that, then the PQ is off.
    Even the premiere of the TV series Crime Story looks like shite.

    I like Fear City and have a decent DVD of it. Nice film.
    Would love a nice tuned up Ms. 45 in blu though.

    According to this review, it's locked:

    I'll have to go region free eventually I guess

    Random question but I forget does Shout! charge your card immediately when you place an order or when the item actually ships? Thanks in advance!

    I haven't confirmed with my credit card statement, but the confirmation email stated my card had been charged.

    Hey guys, in addition to Cliff commenting about the Scream Factory line-up at another forum today, a poster asked him about "Fear City" having extras. Cliff's response:

    "The extras did not work out but we did try.

    The disc will include the R-rated and unrated versions"

    So there you have it, straight from Cliff himself. Very cool to know that we'll be getting both cuts which is a nice treat. Having never seen "Fear City" yet, I'm not entirely bummed that the extras didn't work out since I don't know what to expect but I'm betting I'm gonna dig this flick.

    For me, getting the unrated version is a big enough extra. Nothing compares to having a copy of a cult title that's completely (or as close to completely) uncut. Commentaries are cool but I never watch an entire movie while listening to a chat track.

    Got my BD of Fear City in the mail yesterday. It was a bit of a surprise since I never got a shipment notification from Shout Factory and I wasn't expecting the disc for another month.

    I'll watch it this weekend, but I popped it in the player last night to take a look at it. The Unrated version has a disclaimer stating the unrated inserts are from an inferior source, and I did notice a scene that was pretty blurry looking when I scanned through.

    I didn't see anything blurry. The insert scenes obviously have a different look but I didn't see anything blurry. But to me blurry means something really hard to see but I know some people can be more critical than I.

    That's cool that you received it a couple of weeks early - hopefully Shout will do the same for those who pre-ordered Halloween II and III from them.

    I saw the trailer on Youtube - was Fear City actually shot in NYC? New York doesn't have alleys that wide and some of the streetscapes look like Downtown L.A.

    I'm almost 100% certain that it was shot entirely in NYC, but I know what you mean, the film has an L.A. type of flashiness about it. I've only seen it once, maybe 15 years ago via the Thorn EMI HBO video. I consider it minor Ferrara, but I plan on giving it another chance with this Shout! release. I will say that there is some serious style in many scenes, like the flashback to the Rossano Brazzi character's early gangster days, as well as the shots of the killer practicing martial arts. I love DRILLER KILLER and MS. 45, but this is where you can first tell that he could be a major player, and I'm guessing that it was what made more of an impression on Michael Mann.

    Looks good enough to me. Probably the best it will ever look anyways. I have this on my DVr, recorded from StarzHD (I think). I should watch both for comparison.
