Ancor Bay’s Region 1 DVD
After completing their latest mission Diana (Janine Reynaud) and Regina (Rosanna Yanni) are awoken one evening when they hear someone knocking on their door one stormy night. The man at the door dies because of a knife in his back before he can tell the girls the message he was sent to tell them. It doesn’t take long before the girls soon discover that something is not right on the island of Abilene. Will the girls get to the bottom of things in Abilene or have they finally met their match?
This title out of these three Franco titles that Anchor Bay originally released in in late 1990’s and now Blue Underground is re-releasing with brand news audio, video and extras has the least amount of cropping issues when compared to the Blue Underground transfer. Blue Underground’s transfer is a revelation as colors that were once muted via the Anchor Bay transfer come to life. Blue Underground has put together another solid transfer that puts the previously released Anchor Bay DVD to shame.
Both release come with only one audio option an English dubbed audio track which is presented in a Dolby Digital mono. Blue Underground’s release comes out on top once again with its nearly flawless audio mix.
Blue Underground’s release soundly beats Anchor Bay’s in every way.
Note: Kiss me Monster is only available as part of Blue Underground’s Red Lips double feature which also includes Two Undercover Angels.
