Let The Right Updates In

A few more notes on the LET THE RIGHT ONE IN subtitle controversy...

I found out via
THE VAULT OF HORROR and BLOODY DISGUSTING (both great sites for horror fans BTW)

Anyway apparently Magnolia Pictures has responded to the outcry with this...

“We’ve been made aware that there are several fans that don’t like the version of the subtitles on the DVD/BR. We had an alternate translation that we went with. Obviously a lot of fans thought we should have stuck with the original theatrical version. We are listening to the fans feedback, and going forward we will be manufacturing the discs with the subtitles from the theatrical version...

...There are no exchanges. We are going to make an alternate version available however. For those that wish to purchase a version with the theatrical subtitles, it will be called out in the tech specs box at the back/bottom of the package where it will list SUBTITLES: ENGLISH (Theatrical), SPANISH.”

Well that's better than nothing I suppose but I feel bad for the folks that already paid for the sub par version.

I wonder when the restored versions hit the stores.

Again thanks to BLOODY DISGUSTING, ICONS OF FRIGHT and THE VAULT OF HORROR for keeping me informed of this issue.

I guess the Internet is good for more than porn after all...
