some screenshots from THE VISITOR

Here are some screenshots from our transfer of THE VISITOR. We did a brand new 16x9 transfer, and we feel techicolor Rome did a fantastic job, and by going back to the negatives, the film is much much longer than ever before! About 17 min longer than the U.S cut in fact! And it is even longer than the UK version by 8 min! Not only is Franco Nero now in the beginning of the film, telling the children about the plot but as you can see from the above screenshots, Sam Peckinpah has all his scenes back in as well!

The DVD will feature a full length commentary by star PAIGE CONNER moderated by SCOTT SPIEGEL and JEFF BURR, as well as scene specific commentary with star JOANNE NAIL, as well as on camera interview with both!

When I saw this film on US VHS I was a bit sloshed, and some of it didn't make sense. I'm curious if the additional 17 minutes will help... or being more sober during viewing.

When is this stuff getting released!?!?! It's been a while since I've seen a new DVD release from Code Red.

Really excellent news! I can't wait to get my hands on this! This has been a favourite of mine for many years, love Micalizzi's score and it'll be nice to see it in a more coherent form ;) Good work everyone.
