I know, I know... I announced the French release of the complete Continental print four years (!) ago, but finally it will be released by our friends of Artus Films. All the elements came from the better sources, so it can be the restoration of the year... Will be available in June, along with two other British horrors:

- Satan's Skin / The Blood on Satan's Claws - 1971 - Piers Haggard
- Horror Hospital - 1973 - Anthony Blach

Will it be different than the two existing DVD's?

As long as you're talking about quality - totally. The specific scene from the Continental version (Karl tormenting the female prisoners then selecting one of them for Callistratus' experiments) comes from a 35mm print in the collections of the Cinémathèque Française, not from inferior sources like in the previous releases you mentioned. Same thing for the extended shots and other differences.
Anyway, I'll told you about this DVD as soon it'll be released. But I know the person who found the missing segments, and the other in charge of the restoration and release, both being close friends, so I'm sure it will be much better than any of the previous DVDs.

I don't know this German DVD but if the screen caps are faithful to the images it seems rather flat. Furthermore, I didn't read all the reviews but there's no mention of a Continental version in this disc, or am I wrong? at this moment I have no information on the running time of the future DVD but I'll post it as soon I'll get it.
