Before you try to get you're head around where the fuck this release came from (try reading the notes at the top of the page again) I'll say it again; This is an MVC-exclusive and was only available upon the movies release to dvd. Kind of like a first pressing thing, but a just a bit more HTF.
Anyway, getting to the case, we get your regular single-disc digipack. If you havn't seen any of these yet, you'll notice how very slim these cases are (about half the size of you're standard keepcase) and just looking at this particular case I can really come out and just say it...
Size doesn't matter at all.
The Slipcase looks ok but personally I think it could've been done better (The artwork could've been cleaner, the red-patterned design and the critics quotes rubs me the wrong way on some days), but it's still a lot better from the regular keepcase art. Looking inside there's a lot of detail and the design feels very unique and certainly a step up from the standard look. The slipcase is also well made as far as thickness is concerned. Nice and sturdy, no complaints on my part.
Personally I think the image of a blood-spattered Cillian Murphy squatting with a baseball bat in his hands would have been the coolest cover ever. Never-the-less we can't have it all and I guess having it on the inside is good enough.
Also exlusive to this release are a set of 6 postcards (or "art cards" if you will; I never could figure out the difference). These are oddly enough designed in the form of something like a comic-book. Each card is noted with a certain day (day 1, day 3, day 20 etc) and a small header notes the current state of the on going epidemic. Another unusual style for this film but it works great and really makes this little bastard shine through as something out of the ordinary.
All in all a neat little case and a hell of a lot better looking than the standard thing.
This was a hard one to rate. The menus look good and are kind of still but with some very nice animated details (it captures the abondened look and feel of the film very nicely and give the whole thing a nice quality to it). As for extras there's a commentary and some deleted scenes; some of wich are good and some of wich are bad (alternate scenes are never that fun when there's only minor changes). There's a 24-minute making of along with some galleries and a music video.
The inside of the disc looks and feel good. Subtitles available are english AND swedish (being from Sweden, this is allways an appreciated supplement for me), and these are actuallly available for the commentary track as well (!).
All in all this disc has a pretty good line up and I advice you to pick it up right away.
