I wonder if they're just going to do the first glick in HD or all of them. I'll be getting this as I never bought the DVD.

The 88 Films release may still be the way to go on this one. Troma, much like Full Moon, never includes lossless audio on their releases.

I honestly know next to nothing about audio so that's not big incentive for me to go one way or the other.

If the price difference is big then I'll go with the cheaper one. Troma's past blu's have had pretty good PQ unlike FullMoon and their UK counterparts.

Extras appear different, with the 88 Films one seeming stocked mostly with old extras... Troma's looks like it's got a ton of new stuff, which will be what I'm likely going to grab.
