 Discjunkie's Comments

Packaging / Design

This disc is presented with a simple but still pretty decent looking digipack. The slipcase is okay but not very fancy. The PENTAGRAM (which some idiot at the art department put upside down!) is slightly embossed but without any rough edges.

Overall I'd say it's an okay design and a good idea to make it look like the book of the film, but the ridiculous pentagram-error is quite frustrating and with that the overall design just doesn't feel very thought through.

Disc contents / Extras

This is the ONLY release of the film so far to include a full bit-rate DTS track. And with that said it should probably rank as the best choice in comparison to all the other regions.

The extras are differ from other releases but they also appear to be the lengthiest so far. Some of them appear elsewhere but the Behind The Ninth Gate featurettes-section appears to be entirely exclusive to this release alone.

Subtitles are always optional but the parts of the movie that aren't in english don't have any burned in english subtitles either.


This release has also been issued in Denmark, Finland and Norway.
