Many readers may be wondering why they'd want to triple/quadruple-dip on this particular title. Besides the new extras (as well as the old ones), an HD version of the original cut is a really big deal, as is the presence of the original mono English sound (which will hopefully be uncompressed). We've been forced to contend with the charming, but rather sloppy 5.1 remix and newly dubbed deleted scenes for quite some time.

We will update this space when a release date is announced and official cover art is made available.
