Packaging / Design

Now when it comes to cardboard boxes there are sissy boxes and there are absolute bad boys and a lot of stuff in between. And this is one is certainly files under the super sturdy holy mother of bad ass cardboard cases. I mean it's just so thick that that it puts all other sets on the shelf to shame (okay maybe not THAT unique but it should definately be noted as one sturdy motherfucker).

Looking at the insides we got a fold out 5 disc digistack which is presented with an equally sturdy quality for the cardboard - I mean this thing is just massive - and to be honest I don't think I've ever seen such a thick cardboard used as part of a digistack.

One of the things that's a bit weird is that the digistack has the tape-spine on the RIGHT side as apposed to the normal LEFT side, giving it an odd reversed book-like appearance (okay I'm talking out of my ass trying to explain this but just check the video review and I'm sure you'll get the picture).

Apart from the beautiful case itself we also get a fold out poster, a thick collector's booklet, 5 postcards and a couple of flyers.

You'll notice that the disc art is very similar for the first 3 disc while the last 2 have sort of an alternate look to them. This is quite easily explained as the first 3 disc were previously issued in a 3 disc digipack (commonly referred to as "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre - the complete collection") and the overall design of these matches up a lot better with that release then they do with the cover art on this set (but without knowledge of the previous release I probably wouldn't have considered it a flaw). The last 2 disc have a different but also similar disc art which leads me to believe that they too were part of some kind of prior release as a combo pack but so far I'm not entirely sure.

Last but not least there's also your typical japanese paper wraparound but this isn't really essential for the design if you ask me.


Disc contents / Extras

Well, what can I say. 5 DISCS, WTF!? Truth be told there's not a lot of special stuff here that you can't find anywhere else, and the stuff that is exclusive is mostly in japanese anyway.

EASTER EGGS

When I was going through the third disc I noticed an odd videoclip that's not listed anywhere. The photo gallery on this disc is a simple stills gallery showing everything from posters to production photos and it's made up of a simple page with buttons to select "back", "main menu" or "next". If you use the next button and click your way through the entire photo gallery (roughly 80 pictures) the final "next link" at the end of the gallery will bring up a muted 15 second clip showing a kid in diapers standing on set holding a skeleton bone. I don't remember seeing this clip before in any documentaries nor have I ever heard it mentioned somewhere. Looks like some kind of cut footage from a documentary but so far I have no more info on it.

I'm definitely going to keep my eye out for this one. Great set. Just saw the psuedo-sequel in 3-D today and thorougly enjoyed the Burns, Hansen cameos.
