    My copy shipped on the 11th and will be waiting for me when I get home this afternoon. I am going to crack it open tonight or early Saturday.

    my copy of Symptoms should be here tomorrow it says on tracking, I can't wait to watch it. I can't believe people are shitting their pants over a film being released in 4X3 ratio, many films are shot in that aspect ratio, I'll be happily viewing this blu ray, while those who are obsessed with the aspect ratio can't enjoy the film because the image doesn't perfectly fill up their TV haha

    Mine arrived today. Eager to watch this one. If there is a deluxe edition, with the possible exception of stuff like the Leatherbook Don't Torture a Duckling, I'm all in... but I'm super lukewarm on the red cases. That sounds super OCD nitpick-y as I type it, but I wish the case was blue or better yet, black.

    I really like having different colored cases. A lot of the 88 films releases use red. Some of the blu-rays come in clear cases (like Cub and Demons). I like the yellow cases that Shameless used for their DVD's. It's nice to have some variety.

    I have the clear, black, yellow... I just don't love the way the red is so loud with the artwork.

    I received mine earlier also, #0233 / 1000.

    It's weird that the top of the red case on this one shows "PLAYSTATION 3" on it. o_O That wasn't on the Lizard in a Woman's Skin Blu-ray's red case.

    I believe the Deadpool release is using red cases, thereby causing a run on the red case market as it were. So I suspect Mondo Macabro had to make do with PS3 cases if they were to make their release date.

    My number's bigger than yours Kat, I got #0257/1000! :p

    I got my LE on Friday but didn't sit down with it until the following morning. A really great package, I think. The movie, while low-key, is atmospheric and unsettling. I am almost halfway through the supplements and have, so far, found them to be entertaining and informative. I am going to finish up this weekend.

    I got #0042/1000, which is awesome given that it was a gift for my 42nd birthday.

    the release of Symptoms is great, looks beautiful in HD. I didn't expect it to look this good, considering it was supposed to be a lost film I kind of expected it to look beat up or something, but it looks brand new. I liked the movie, still like Vampyres better though, Symptoms is more of an art type film, Vampyres is more the horror film, I would like to see more of Joseph Larraz's films released to blu ray, the extras showed about some of his other films, and they look very interesting. And Symptoms and Vampyres I really emjoy, so I expect I'd enjoy his other films as well. Maybe Mondo Macabro can get some of his other films released?
