Packaging / Design

I was surprised to find that this release doesn't come with a slipcase but luckily it's still a very good looking set. The digipack feels very high quality and the artwork is just superb.

The overall colour of the digipack is something of a toxic green and even though my photos do come pretty close to the real thing, it might be just a tad bit brighter in real life (but don't worry, it looks awesome!)


Disc contents / Extras

This release has the most extras of any release but it's still not as impressive as one would hope. There's a whopping selection of as much as SIX different commentary tracks but strangely enough, not one of them with director Roger Avery nor actor James Van Der Beek.

In all fairness, sure the commentary tracks are fun and interesting and there's a bunch of good points but the share volume doesn't make up for the fact that the director himself doesn't appear on any of them. The menus are all in french and are animated with both great imagery and some interesting choices for the background audio. There's no making of which is a it sad but the Anatomy of a scene featurette is pretty interesting.

There's only a few exclusive extras on this release made up of short interviews for the most part. I guess in the end I think the film itself is so interesting that it definetly deserves a lot more extras, but then again , maybe there just isn't any more footage around.

In the end I find the disc pretty slim even with the surprising amount of commentaries (for obvious reasons).


EASTER EGGS

Go to the section about Roger Avery, enter interviews and highlight the promotional interview. Now press left to highlight a hidden square. Press enter for a short segment of Roger talking about the films poster.


Sidenotes

This release includes the longest possible version of the film, which runs a total of 1h 46m 23s... But; this is however not the only release to include this version.

A number of sources claim this edition to include an exclusive cut of the film as the running time is actually longer than the so called "uncut" version released in places like Sweden for instance (an OOP releaseat this point though). The Swedish cut clocks in at 1h 46m 08s but from what I can tell, the time difference comes from the fact the the french version includes an additional pre-movie company title sequence for Metropolitan Films. With this said, there doesn't seem to be any differences to the actual film and I've verified the suicide scene as well, which looks exactly the same as the regular uncut version.

I'm not entirely sure if the digipack is limited or not but it's possible that it was just a first press.

Hey there! I just gotta say I love this site! Being someone who is a nut for cool packaging and exclusive extras (and loving DVD of course), this site was totally made for guys like me! Keep up the good work so that I can determine whether or not I should also dish out cash on some of these limited sets.
