This release comes in a hardcover box (or small "Hartbox" if you wanna use the german term). This looks kind of like an old VHS-case but with a slimmer look to it (about the same size as a keepcase but slightly higher if I remember correctly).
The exterior is all glossy but with no embossing and the edges feels nice and sturdy. The disc stays in place and can't come loose when the case is closed, which I think is really neat. However, a small warning about opening the case: As the glossy cardboard exterior isn't very flexible the spine will most likely see some damages if you try to bend it open all the way (I would suggest just opening it to about a 90 degree angle - like you see in the photos).
Still, quite a nice design and it's fun to see a nice cover even for such an obscure title as this.
The disc is in fact the old "Red Edition" disc released by Laser Paradise for the german market (later re-issued as a limited edition from Retrofilm), but I guess XT Video somehow obtained the right to distribute the disc for the Austrian market.
Not a very packed release but it's completely uncut and does include a few cut scenes as well. As pretty much all release seem to be identical in terms of features I would only choose this one over another because of the case.
Video quality isn't very impressive and should honestly be described as down right poor and is presented in nothing but fullscren... but like I said, there really isn't much else to choose from.
This was released in 2007 and is a re-issued limited edition. There was a seemingly identical release from NSM Records in a simular type of case (large hartbox) but this has been OOP for quite some time. The first version was limited to only 666 copies but the disc was still the same one as in the re-released versions.
So far, the film has only been released on DVD in Austria and Germany.
