Haute Tension audio options

I watched the Tai version of this French film last weekend. Excellent little flick, for what it's worth. The only audio options were an Tai w/ english subs or English with Tau subs.

Is there a uncut / directors cut / not cut somehow edition out that is in French w/ English subs?

Even though there wasn't a lot of dialogue, the dubbing was distracting and there were some awkward moments when the dub just didn't translate well.

Ahhh the UK dvd I pray its a good dvd as The company with the rights are not doing the best work on there dvds so far from what I see, in fact many people are in a bad way as the dvds released so far are far from great so they better do a cracking job on the UK dvd or else!

thanks for the heads up, I was about to order the dubbed version, but for the sake of subtitles I'll wait.

Here's a link to the US trailer, which I think is just great, it plays almost like an inside joke if you've already seen the movie. This is supposed to be released uncut in the US.

I have the 2 disc French version, and I hope the R2 UK disc or the R1 disc whenever it comes out is as good image wise as that one is.

got my review disc today. its uncut. the french disc is apparently anamorphic 2.35:1.
this disc i got today has borders and isnt anamorphic : also the borders suggest 1.85:1,
but to be sure i am going to have to ask optimum themselves to clear it up...

disc image quality is top notch (at this point) and extras are mostly interviews, but theres a commentary on it... nice menus too...

The june date is confirmed, don't know what was going on with that Valentine's Day bit in the trailer, because Lions Gate changed it pretty soon afterwards.

UK disc is 2.35:1 for sure. i had a mental mix-up on this. so : this will be the best disc to buy !
