    I sure hope so...
    b/c the crappy Artisan release SUCKS!!!

    its 4:3, non-anamorphic, no special features (except trailers and bios), and crappy image quailty (its really muddy)

    it needs a re-release badly, it was Argentos comeback, and i really like Sleepless and it deserves better.

    The U.S. release was a bust,I have a region 2 that is pretty nice,though.

    I'll upgrade when there's a Blu-Ray version (or HD_DVD :p). Until then, the Region 2 is good enough.

    You can get a region free player for under $50.

    I got the R2, and it's got some nice extras and a good transfer. Sometimes you've just got to bite the bullet and go abroad. Region free players are dirt cheap, aren't they?

    Who doesn't hope for a re-release? Maybe someone who doesn't want to buy another disc who already owns a region-2. But for the people who stick to region-1 for whatever reason, Lionsgate needs to step the hell up and finally do some re-releases of Artisan's attrocities. I heard they did a pretty good job with Martin and a sufficient enough job with Chopping Mall. Why the hell have they stopped? Sleepless and Dead Alive sure could use special editions.

    Exactly. I cannot understand how someone could do that and be a cinema lover at the same time...

    The only reason I prefer region 1 discs is because the PS3 can't play any other region. I have a region-free player that upconverts, but doesn't look as good.

    Last year I bought the Italian R2 DVD and it's great.Judging by some screen comparisons even better than the UK R2.

    I own the Italian R2 and the transfer is flawless - even TOO good for some of the special FX.

    I originally had the Dutch DVD which was a direct port of the UK disc.But non-anamorphic.
    Gave to a friend.

    I bought the R2 UK DVD myself. One of the first ones I bought when I went Region Free and glad I did!

    I own the UK 2-disc version, and that's good enough for me. I snagged it off ebay for $10, yay! :)

    Now I wish I had bought the Italian DVD, especially since I already had owned An Eye for Horror separately!! :(

    Oh Well! I got it cheap off of Ebay as well and it beats the heck out of the US release!
