Comparison between the international HD master (iTunes / Amazon.com) and the German Blu-ray from Shamrock Media


- 6 relevant changes
- No time difference


Mike Mendez's The Convent was released in a thoroughly censored R-rated version besides the Unrated version. Since June 20, 2022, the uncensored German HD premiere is available in three Blu-ray mediabooks from Shamrock Media.

The label has thought along, because for a few scenes the rather strange color filter of the HD master has been adjusted. The HD version, which is already available on iTunes or Amazon.com, for example, often shows somewhat brighter colors, usually tending towards artificial orange, during gore moments. The old DVDs or even VHS evaluations showed the blood here in a much more natural hue. On the Shamrock Blu-ray, most of the film is identical, but these brief moments have been color-adjusted so that they come closer to what fans were used to.

Note: In addition to the widescreen version used for the cut report, thr film is also included on the Blu-ray in 1.33:1 Open Matte.
