    Wow, I've been scared of this film, but it is interesting to note this release is coming at us, I had no idea. I wonder what's on it?

    I'm very interested in seeing this. I originally saw it in Japan and have often wondered if it was cut.

    Ahh Coolness! Have this on DVD-R, but will surely hunt down this release. :)
    I really enjoyed another film by this director too... Black Sun : The Nanking Massacre.

    The movie is a bit dull at parts but overall a good movie with some excellent gore scenes. If you seen the uncut version DDM you'd know it. I guess the only difference in this release and the old Japan shock release is the documentary.

    I'm fairly certain is was uncut. I just thought that perhaps since I saw it in Japan, government censors may have had a field trip since officially, according tot he Japanese, this never happened.

    I liked the movie, but it is slow. The doc seems interesting, however not enough for me to double dip.

    I put off buying the disk, and then when it went out of print I still stayed stubborn and kept looking for it cheap. Nice to see my stubborness pay off.

    I'll be picking this up for sure.

    If the price is decent, I'm think I'm gonna double dip for the documentary.

    Well, I bought this and it arrived today. It comes in a very nice box with slipcase. The only extra is a bonus disc with a 50-minute long documentary about the facts behind the movie. I'll try and give it a look either today or tomorow and post my thoughts about it.

    Chaostar : the box says "Widescreen Version" ... how can I know if a transfer's anamorphic?

    the JAPAN SHOCK "MBTS" release is awesome-exspecially the KIZU documentary! you have also to check out "A LIVING HELL", "KICHIKU" and "OXEN SPLIT TORCHURE" released by JAPAN SHOCK. can`t wait for their next attack!

    So did you find out if it was anamorphic or not? I just bought the old Japan Shock version off of Mr. Foo recently but if it's anamorphic I may have to get it again. Who is putting it out and what region?

    I ordered it from Absurd-online.dk for about $35 including postage. They don't ship to countries outside of Europe though.
