    An update from the Cult Labs forum:

    The Blu-ray will include seamlessly branched options to play the film three ways:

    1. ‘Zombie Flesh-Eaters’: with the English opening and closing titles and the on screen title ‘Zombie Flesh-Eaters’ as it was originally seen in UK cinemas

    2. ‘Zombie’: with the English opening and closing titles and the on screen title ‘Zombie’ as it was originally seen in US cinemas

    3. ‘Zombi 2’ with Italian opening and closing titles with the on screen title ‘Zombi 2’ as it was originally seen in Italian cinemas

    The DVD will not have this function as by doing so would have comprised the SD feature encode.

    Finally, both sets are 2 disc sets (2 Blu-rays / 2 DVDs) the special features are as follows (all extras in HD with uncompressed audio on the Blu-rays):

    - A brand new high definition restoration of the original negative

    - Optional English SDH subtitles

    - Audio commentary with screenwriter Elisa Briganti, moderated by Calum Waddell

    - Audio commentary with Fulci biographer Stephen Thrower and horror expert Alan Jones

    - UK exclusive introduction to the film from Ian McCulloch

    - “ALIENS, CANNIBALS AND ZOMBIES: A TRILOGY OF ITALIAN TERROR” – Actor Ian McCulloch remembers his three classics of Latin horror lunacy - ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS, CONTAMINATION and ZOMBI HOLOCAUST

    - “FROM ROMERO TO ROME: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE ITALIAN ZOMBIE FILM” – Veteran Fulci screenwriters Dardano Sacchetti (THE BEYOND) and Antonio Tentori (CAT IN THE BRAIN), celebrated UK critic Kim Newman and filmmakers Luigi Cozzi (CONTAMINATION), Ruggero Deodato (CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST), Russ Streiner (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD) plus many more share memories of the genesis of corpse-crunching cinema - from Romero's early templates to the gory glory days of Fulci and his many successors.

    - “THE MEAT MUNCHING MOVIES OF GINO DE ROSSI” – The special effects magician behind many Italian splatter classics talks about his most famous gore-drenched greats - and shows props from many plasma-packed masterworks - including ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS, CITY OF THE LIVING DEAD, THE HOUSE BY THE CEMETERY, CANNIBAL FEROX, BURIAL GROUND and PIRANHA II.

    - “ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS - FROM SCRIPT TO SCREEN” – Dardano Sacchetti shows key pages from his original ISLAND OF THE LIVING DEAD screenplay.

    - Trailers and TV spots

    - Collector’s booklet featuring brand new writing on the film by Fulci biographer Stephen Thrower, a new interview with star Olga Karlatos by Calum Waddell, a history of Zombie Flesh Eaters and the BBFC by Craig Lapper, one of the board’s senior examiners, and extracts of the original ‘Nightmare Island’ 1978 script including unfilmed, alternate, and more gory sequences as well as a Lucio Fulci CV compiled by Jay Slater.

    That trailer looks great.
    I find the other versions a little too light for my tastes.

    I guess I'll buy this ONE more time!

    Oh boy, can't wait for the 5 minute discussion from Thrower on why the eyeball impalement is a metaphor for Freudian symbolism and something to do with Feminism.

    The rest of the extras look great but I don't buy DVD's for extras any more.

    I bought the Cat In The Brain SE just for the extras.

    I'd read Thrower's Fulci book and don't remember it being laden with excessive Freudianisms. Has thrower gone over the edge with that stuff since then?

    That's what turned me off to his book on Fulci. The man took 4 pages to go over Freudian and Feminist symbolisim in the eyeball scene. Come on.

    The extras for Cat in the Brain are amazing though.

    Some images of the steelbook packaging (with a Battle Royale image beside it just because).

    So maybe this is going to be worth the double dip after all?
