Trivia: the director of such films as The Church and Dellamorte, Dellamore, Michele Soavi appears as Burt in the movie.
Audio/Video. Obviously the tech specs of this release are not going to resemble a big Hollywood release at all. With that said, this Blu-ray release looks fantastic, and I daresay it is likely the best it has ever looked, including whenever it may have screened theatrically. The uncut print has a nice level of detail and colors are very good, save for the stock footage that looks like, well, stock footage. There is little evidence of print damage, whatever the source was, it was kept in very good condition. Frankly, the movie probably has no right looking as good as it does. The audio track is DTS-MA 2.0 and it does the trick. It is clear and understandable, but it has a distinct aura of being an old track. It is an odd, yet familiar tone that is hard to describe, but feels perfect for this sort of movie.
Extras. A couple of extras are on the disk. First is a series of special effects outtakes. Nothing special to see here, and I am curious as to where they were discovered. The other extra is a Dutch VHS trailer; it is the same as the only one I have ever been able to find online. Nothing to really worry about, the movie itself is enough for me.
Bottomline. What can I say? The masses are sure to hate the movie, but for those of us with slightly skewed perspectives, this is a must see. Its hypnotic quality won me over. I found it hard to look away. It is certainly a strange film of the sort you rarely see anymore.
