Title Best
Encounters of the Spooky Kind (Gui da Gui): Special Collector's Edition=

    The Region 4 seems to be the same as the UK Region 2, apart from having different trailers for other releases.

    There have been two Region 1 releases. The earlier one from Tai Seng is not 16x9 enhanced and has only some production notes as extras. The recent release from Fox is 16x9 enhanced, and features soundtracks in mono, Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1. Reports of the video and audio quality are very favourable, but apart from two trailers there are no extras.

    The Region 3 release from Deltamac is also 16x9 enhanced and the disc features Dolby Digital 2.0 soundtracks. Reports indicate that the video and audio quality are good but the subtitles are poor in terms of grammar and spelling. There is another release from Mega Star which is reported to be of good quality, though not up to the level of the Region 4. Neither appear to have much in the way of extra material.

    In terms of extras, the Region 4/Region 2 seems to be the best release. I would like to have seen a comparison between the video quality of this transfer and the new Fox Region 1, as there are some issues with the Region 4.
