Packaging / Design

This is a very nice and glossy style digipack. It's not super-thick but thick enough to feel genuine and well made. Artwork is pretty much the same as you get everywhere else (same old shot of Kyle and Isabella on the front) but they've done a nice look for it overall. And being as this film usually doesn't come with to interesting cases, this is a nice addition to any collection.


Disc contents / Extras

Never judge a dvd by it's non excisting velvet cover. First off; Scanbox my have done a good job on the outer design but the look of the menus is just awful. It's got way too static selections and just not very unique looks at all. It feels like a menu done in the beginning of the dvd era. I just thaught we would have come a lot longer since then.

The second disc comes with the Strange Desires documentary, which all though a nice documentary, doesn't make up for the missing trailer (mentioned on the cover) which is nowhere to be found. With this said, the menus on disc 2 really have no purpose. There's only one selection (and you don't even know if it's highlighted or not as it's the only option on screen and you can't flip to a different option).

And finally, the big dagger in this casket of a disc is the fact that the movie freezes on two occasions (or so it's been reported, might not be a problem on all players).


Sidenotes

The cover incorrectly states the inclusion of a trailer. There's also an authoring error causing the movie disc to freeze on two occasions.
