The Butterfly Murders

Manufacturer: Mei Ah

Format: full frame

Subtitles: Chinese/English on the lower portion of the picture; unreadable/cut at sides for most of the movie (may be cut off completely by some DVD players)

Picture: horrible -- dark with lots of scratches; improves a bit as the film goes on

Sound: tinny and full of pops

Notes: the picture/sound problems are probably just because of the weak source print; the movie is still watchable, but you've been warned. Also has an anti-piracy trailer at the beginning of the first disc.

Rating: *
