    I recently spoke to Media Blasters about this new Lizard in a Woman’s Skin release. They have confirmed that this is a new release that will include the region 2 cut of the film and the extras from the region 2. All with English subtitles.

    Since when has Media Blasters ever actually released a disc on the street date anyway? I have no interest in them or their products. They have always been and still are a third rate company. Their only redemption were the excellent extras Mike and Kit put together.

    Media Blasters aren't getting any more of my money as far as this title goes. Ideally, they would offer this upgrade as a replacement to those who bought their unsatisfactory original release, but I can't imagine Media Blasters doing that. They certainly aren't Blue Underground.

    Every company should do this, if they pull that kind of crap! It is stealing from consumers, no matter how you look at it. This isn't a big Hollywood film. It's a cult film that has a limited audience of buyers, so the people who bought this film, would be the only ones to want the upgrade! Which makes you wonder why they are doing this in the first place! They aren't going to get a significant amount of new sales from this! I am so happy I didn't spend the money on it the first time! It's funny. I ordered it from Overstock and it came with the case so damaged, it pissed me off! They didn't have a lot of copies in stock, so I copied it and returned it with the fear I wouldn't get another copy. When I saw they were out of stock, I just told them to cancel the order. I still have the copy and the film isn't really that great anyway!!

    I got burned on this by Retro-Shock-O-Rama and their "Womens Prison Massacre". So it's not something new. I hated it then as well.

    At least they offered a free upgrade.

    Yeah, they came through for us! I got that DVD and they sent me a free upgrade! That's the way to handle your customers! All I had to do was send them a UPC code and they sent me a whole new DVD, case and all!

    Releasedate is somewhere in december (apparently) but I have a strong feeling we will have to wait a bit longer.
    Anyway,here's what Whiggles has to say about it:

    For various reasons, a PAL to NTSC transfer can actually be superior to a native NTSC transfer from the same film elements - provided that the downconversion is done by the right people with the right equipment. Synapse has had some very positive results doing this on some of their DVDs (like Grapes of Death).

    Unfortunately, Media Blasters isn't the greatest at this type of work, so I would be worried.

    I liked this film but I won't be upgrading for sure. They should have done it right in the first place.

    I don't own this for the hope that definitive version would be released. I hope this new one is not flawed.
