Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great film, shoddy DVD The Black Cat is a classic horror movie, but this is a really shoddy release from a supposedly professional company. There is no menu (so no chapter selection and no extras). The DVD starts playing the movie on insertion, and when the movie ends the DVD stops and you are left staring at your player's screen saver. They also have not bothered adding subtitles for this movie with old sound which mostly older viewers will watch. Don't buy this unless you have no other option. I will stick with my old bargain-bin disc (which also contained The Mummy and The Raven).
