    Any chance the DVD cover art is reversible? I know many Media Blasters titles have reversible covers. Maybe this is one of them, as well.

    I'm having a hard time remembering what the cover art is/was for the VHS.. I own a copy of the Paragon Home Video release, and I remember it being a rather ugly gold colored background, and kind of a pencil drawing style picture of the twin w/machete?? Perhaps I'm wrong on that now, will have to look at it when I get home. I know that the theatrical poster made the movie look more like an action/adventure flick, mostly a shot of wilderness, with the actors' faces in little boxes appearing right above the credits...I'm always an advocate of original poster art when it comes to DVD/VHS covers, but I'll say it again--REGARDLESS of what cover they used, MAJOR THANKS to Media Blasters for thinking of this film and bringing it to the fans...

    okay i heard it is supposed to be 2 disc but www.movieweb.com says 1 disc and yet the picture of the dvd case says 2 dvd special edition

    www.dvdempire.com has a totally different cover art for the dvd and says nothing about a 2 disc dvd so what is up

    Fangoria issue # 245 shows the artwork for the upcoming dvd. The ad is on page 77. According to Fango it's definitely a 2 - Disc Special Edition. I think they would be the most reliable source. However, I would not pre-order this. I'm sure Media-Blasters will fuck up the release just like they did with Zombi 2.
    I tried going to their website but it is under construction.

    While Liebermann's film itself is poor, even considering the low standards of the director, this "new" DVD cover is downright ludicrous. Obviously an idiotic attempt to make it resemble the cover of "Wrong Turn".

    Oh, and I see that the initial pound-chesting announcements (commentaries, documentaries, separate score track - that one being the only reason for which I could have bought this) decreased into a mere bunch of interviews in the final product. Amusing.

  10. This dvd will rock! Sounds like it's a 2 disc with some nice special features.

    Don't forget all the other DVD's they've fucked up. I have high hopes for this title since I love the film, but Media Blasters goofs things up way too much. I just hope an entire 6-minute scene isn't completely missing, just because of a stupid DVD authoring error like on the Hell High disc! And the Warlock Moon disc...ugh, a sad butchered travesty. And forget about Media Blasters ever fixing their problems, they never even reply to customer service emails.

    I had a rather pleasant experience with the Media Blasters people. I had emailed them a long time ago asking questions about the Jungle Holocaust release before it had come out, and not only did I get a reply back, I was able to get set up so that I received their promotional information periodically, including neat ad slicks and preview discs.

    I think that they're a rather smallish outfit that probably does what they can, albeit irritating when stuff you're waiting for takes forever...I don't know what to say about the missing footage and/or edited movies, I've not seen them myself. I know I wanted Warlock Moon, but beyond the bad things I"d heard, I was never able to find it to buy. Perhaps that's just as well.

    Amazon.com has this for pre-order for 13.98$ The cover art on their site clearly states two disc, so either this is the bargain of the year or someone goofed up.

    While I agree it sucks that they have screwed up releases like Warlock Moon and Hell High...and firmly believe they should correct these issues...I think their product output has been more good than bad. I cannot wait for Just Before Dawn. It is probably the genre release I am most looking forward to this summer.

    yeah, a two disc dvd from Media Blasters that is under 15 bucks sounds too good to be true.

    I'm sorry, I'm apparently out of the loop? What did they fuck up on the Zombi 2 release? I have that and the Blue underground and have only watched my Blue Underground release.

    Never seen it, but still getting it. Sounds like a pretty good flick from what I've gathered. And the disc sounds pretty good as well. I like movies set in wilderness environments, so I'm sure I'll enjoy this one.
