The Film :

When a group of models go missing and the authorities come up with no clues. The red lipstick duo Diana (Janine Reynaud) and Regina (Rosanna Yanni) are assigned to the case. They duo soon discover who is behind these mysterious abductions he is a man named Klaus Triller. Why has he kidnapped these women and what does he plan to do with them?

Video:

Blue Underground’s anamorphic widescreen release is a vast improvement over Anchor Bay cropped/washed out transfer. Blue Underground’s transfer restores the films lucid color palette and details look exceptionally sharp through out. The differences between the two are like night and day with the better transfer of the two obviously being Blue Underground’s.

Audio:

Both release come with only one audio option an English dubbed audio track which is presented in a Dolby Digital mono. Anchor Bay audio mix like its transfer is worn and shows its age. Blue Underground’s audio mix like their transfer is in great shape.

Extras:

Anchor Bay’s release comes with the following extras a DVD insert that contains photos from the film and a full frame version of the trailer. Blue Underground’s release comes with the
following extras a trailer for the film in widescreen and a fourteen minute interview with Jess Franco.

Overall:

Once again Blue Underground has the better of the two releases as they have improved the audio/video and added some new extras.

Note: Two Undercover Angels is only available as part of Blue Underground’s Red Lips double feature which also includes Kiss me Monster.
