    I noticed that this will have a custom case. I hope it's not impossible to get the discs out. Those custom jobs can be cool but sometimes they are a real pain in the ass.

    I've been hearing from various people that the missing road to hell footage from the EC release is still missing in the new Grindhouse...any truth to that?

    I need to order this. The main theme is one of the most haunting pieces I've ever heard.

    After buying the recent PAL import version, I thought I'd give the Grindhouse version a miss.

    Looks now like I'll be double dipping. I'm really after the extras. Plus, I'm a sucker for limited edition packages.

    Regrettably, I sold a limited edition book / high quality fanzine of Cannibal Holocaust on eBay around a year ago (for £9.99). A small, softcover book from France, it kicked ass. The text was in English and the illustrations were first rate (photos plus poster artwork, etc.). I'm kicking myself now, it was a great companion to the DVDs (and was limited to 500 copies). I also sold the Texas Chainsaw book from the same publishers. D'oh! Somebody in Japan's now a lucky guy...

    The Ultra-bit version has it, but in the film itself not as an extra, it is the only true uncut version, it is also the best looking version. It is truly the best version of the film.

    This new version has a lot more extras, however.

    I just looked at my e-mail, and I preordered Cannibal Holocaust from DVD Empire, and they just shipped it tonight, 2nd day air. I will be receiving the DVD on the release date, October 25th. I can't wait.

    I pre-ordered mine from DDD earlier today. I just couldn't resist after reading that DVD Maniacs review. :D

    Man, all these reviews make me need my copy that much more. Damn DDD for shipping it yesterday. I want it tomorrow. Oh well .... guess I should be glad I'm getting it at all.

    Jesus! That DVDManiacs review actually made me want to run out and buy it!!! And I really wasn't all that impressed with it to begin with. Wow!

    I don't really like Cannibal movies but indeed that review makes it look so good!This might easily creep onto my wishlist..

    Damn, didn't get it today, maybe tomorrow....

    EDIT: Just got an e-mail saying they've just now shipped it, but they used UPS Ground so it's not scheduled to get here until Halloween. Shit! Though I'm sure that's just an estimate and it could arrive sooner. Maybe toward the end of the week...I've never bought from Diabolik before [though I used to be pretty well acquainted with one of the guys who runs it] and am a little disappointed that they didn't ship it before today [actually, it's possible they might not have even shipped it yet--all the e-mail says is that they've paid for it to be shipped.]

    Oh well...I have a lot of stuff to do this week anyway and probably shouldn't be spending it watching cannibal movies. It will be cool to have it arrive around Halloween.
