The Holcroft Covenant

1985

John Frankenheimer
Director
Edie & Ely Landau
Production Company

Holds the unwanted distinction of being the worst ever transfer on the UK Region 2 DVD market. (these screencaps are from the Region 1 version)
Don't take my word for it either; here's a review on the UK DVD from Amazon:
Please, please, please! Stay way from this DVD. It is lousy at best... I thought I would be lucky in buying this crappy DVD, but instead I have been taken for a ride... This appears to be a tape transfer. The image is grainy and shabby all over. Colors are dull and washed out. The aspect ratio is a somewhat would be 1.66:1 or at best 1.70:1 instead of the 1.85:1 correct ratio. Some images jump up and down like a defective VHS copy. Sound? Loud and with an unbearable whirring noise... The joke? Special Features: (and I quote) Interactive Menus - 6 scene selections. Who are these morons at Pegasus Entertainment? Cocaine sniffing bozos?
