This film has received a DVD release in Region 1 in August, 2001. The package offered our American cousins is a fair bit different than that which we have here.
The Region 4 disc of this film misses out on:
The Region 1 disc of this film misses out on:
- Directors Commentary
- Production Commentary
- English, French and Spanish subtitles
- Trailers for Progeny, Return Of The Living Dead 3, The Dentist, and The Dentist 2
- 24 Chapters (ours 15)
If there is one thing that I really hate, it is missing out on commentaries. Even if it's for a film that I don't like, at least I end up getting something out of the whole viewing experience by learning from the filmmakers what they had in mind. In the case of this disc, we in Region 4 miss out on 2 commentaries. The first is from Director Brian Yuzna and covers the genesis and making of the film. The second features actor Andrew Divoff and Special Effects creator Screaming Mad George as well as Cinematographer Jacques Haitkin. There is no way that the brief featurettes that are available to us in Region 4 (as well as Region 2 which has a package quite similar to ours) can compensate for the missing commentary tracks. With these missing from our disc, I could not possibly recommend this disc over that afforded our friends in Region 1. If you are a fan of this film, Region 1 is the only way to go.
