    The cover mentions three: German version, International version (I think the one we had on DVD from Blue Underground) and long version (probably including the missing scenes from the Italian/Spanish version).

    Regarding Le chat qui fume:
    Just give it a try and use the checkout, you'll see the shipping costs before hitting the order button.

    The BU of Bloody Judge was a hybrid version - uncut English but with German language inserts.

    A bit more info courtesy of a wonky Google translation from the Amazon listing:

    https://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/AS...R/dvd-forum-21

    Rushed like dogs, hunted like wolves, burned like devils: in the name of right!

    England in the 17th century: George Jeffreys was appointed Supreme Judge by the royal family. And thus the first witch hunter in the country to lead a cruel regiment with the help of his no less sadistic torturers. Political adversaries fall victim to him just as much as young women whom he sends into the flames as witches, especially if they do not want to submit to him. One wrong word and the stake is burning! (2 Blu-rays + 2 bonus DVDs + 1 CD)

    None other than Christopher Lee is the title judge in this gorgeous hexploitation classic directed by cult director Jess Franco. "The primitive pseudo-historical story serves as a pretext for wide-ranging torture scenes," says the Catholic Film Service, while the Evangelical Film Observer describes the WITCHENDER as "a horror film with a lot of sadism". Time for an edition that presents the film for the first time in HD and in all published versions.

    Bonus material:
    trailer; German theatrical version; English export version; Edited scenes; Documentation; Picture Gallery; soundtrack; booklet;
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    From Blue Underground's FB page:

    "To all the Jess Franco collectors out there: We're trying to locate a copy of the elusive Spanish Version of CECILIA to include on our upcoming Blu-ray release. Please private message us if you have a copy on video you can share. Thank you!"
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    I dropped them a note & uploaded the Spanish version to google,
    sadly the the only Spanish copy is from VHS,
    and the source runs short due to print damage.....missing a fairly key sequence at the end of the first reel.

    Interestingly the German VHS release uses the Cecilia title and the Eurocine credits at the beginning, but is in fact the unedited Spanish version: https://ssl.ofdb.de/view.php?page=fa...424&vid=313147

    If they can't find a decent uncut print of the Spanish version, they just should delete the two Eurocine flashback scenes (about 8 minutes) from the film and put these in the extras department of the blu-ray. While these two scenes don't change the film very much, they kind of destroy the dreamlike rhythm of it.

    Anyone got a list of ALL the "Jess Franco Golden Goya Collection" BDs that Ascot released? I'm going to get the ones I'm missing.
