Six Discs of Grindhouse!

Grindhouse (click for larger image)Are you, like the rest of us, pissed at how Grindhouse was treated on DVD when it was released here in the states? Refuse to buy it until Dimension caves and puts both films and the faux trailers in one set?

Well, your wait for a U.S. release may be eternal, but if you’re not above importing from Japan (and we sure as hell ain’t in the Butane household; you should see our edition of Silent Hill…) you’re going to be smiling ear-to-ear come March 21st.

Horror Movies.ca just got the word on a 6-disc Grindhouse set being released in the land of kaiju and ninjas, along with the specs on each disc. I only have two words for it; Holy. Shit. Check it;

      Is this really some crazy amazing set? I mean, we’ve already had the 2-disc DP and PT releases. If they release a 2-disc of the theatrical version of the movie, then that’s equal to what this Japanese set has.

      Also, the trailers are included in the 191 min cut, because I’m fairly certain the theatrical running time was 191 min.

    • Chainsaw

      I am getting this. There’s not even a question.

      God bless you, Japan, and all the hard work that you do, except for all the blurring.

    • Tsotha-lanti

      Part of me actually wants to see “Death Proof” out of morbid curiosity, even if I’ve read the script. If I hadn’t touched the Dread Central boards at all I’d probably have seen it when it still was in theatres, though.

    • thedudeabides

      Yeah, I’m torn also. I love Planet Terror and HATE Death Proof… so I don’t know if I’m going to spend the cash just to get the faux trailers.

    • Tsotha-lanti

      Yay, good thing I’ve waited for this. Hope another R2 version than the Japanese one will be made.

    • -Future_Master_Of_Horror-

      So we don’t get the flaux trailers seperate?
      Are they included in the 191 min cut?

      THE HIT LIST:
      Sometimes They Come Back 2.5/5
      Lost S3 5/5

      I’ll wait for the US DVD. I don’t want to spend a shitload on the import and then suddenly find the US version of the SE being released a week later. I’ll think about it.

    • Minion

      So they’re releasing Machete seperately then? Damn. I thought they might slip that in somewhere with the collectors edition.
