    I'll be picking up Pieces. .

    I was curious about Cannibal Holocaust as I, sadly, have never seen the film. I keep seeing it at Best Buy wit the new cover, but wasn't sure about what it was since there was a "ultimate edition" of some sort released lately..

    Pieces would be a blind buy for me but I'm psyched for it to get released already.

    Definitely getting Pieces and i already have the AB Beyond so won't be getting that.

    Kinda off topic but, does anyone know if Cannibal Holocaust is a re-issue?

    I think that's what I've been reading, but I'm not 100%.

    In regards to Cannibal Holocaust: As long as it's the Grindhouse re-release, it's all the same discs and content. The only thing that's different is the package. The re-release is just a clear 2-disc DVD case and the limited numbered edition comes in a book-like case with alternate cover, much like the Universal 75th's, with a slip cover.

    Here are the visual differences, the left is the original limited edition (without the slip cover [which looks like the cover of the re-release]) and the right is the new re-release. Both copies are mine, or were mine, I still have the limited edition obviously and I gave the re-release away as a prize when I screened a print of Cannibal Holocaust at a local theatre last month. I got both signed by Ruggero Deodato in person when I met him at Rue Morgue's Fest of Fear in August.

    I'll be getting both. The only version of The Beyond that I have is a cheap-o "Seven Doors of Death" that's cut to bejesus. I'm not sure if the DVD of Pieces that I have is cut, but I know it's near unwatchable.

    Can anyone compare Pieces to anything else, in terms of tone? I've never seen it, but I'm considering a blind-buy.

    I don't know what I'm disappointed more about: the fact the Beyond is the same transfer of a dvd I already own or the fact that there are currently no plans for a Blu-Ray release. ****SIGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH****


    Still, I'm getting both the Beyond and Pieces when they come out. The Beyond is up there with Night of the Living Dead and Dawn of the Dead in movies I'm willing to multiple dip for.

    It's cheese. Pure cheese. But quality cheese. Nice gore, some really over-the-top performances, some wonderfully weird dialog (and delivery). At times it plays like a slasher version of Young Frankenstein - except played straight. I'm struggling to directly compare it with anything specific. It's not so bad it qualifies as an Ed Wood type of flick - although it gets close.

    I think it's class, but for all the wrong reasons.

    The Beyond will never truly go out of print (the AB disc is OOP, but you can still buy it if you're desperate for the title). Given it's the same transfer I'll skip the new one.

    If you are a fan of the giallo genre and like gory movies, pick it up. I my opinion pieces is more related to the giallo than the slasher.

    But anyway, I doubt that you will regret your purchase.

    Just be cautious that it fails in almost everything it tries to do - and is funny. You'll laugh at it, without feeling cheated for having to do so......

    Saw something some time ago ( I think it was Retroslashers) about "Pieces" having a censored fellatio scene reinsterted (no pun intended). There was a rumor that this scene was put in by projectionists in one of the NY theatres as a joke. Just wondering if anyone has heard about that?
