LOL don't know if I could watch this again. I went through a Miike phase several years go, but now I feel dirty just thinking about his films (Gozu, Visitor Q, etc.) :wtf:

Good film! Some really nasty and disturbing scenes in it. Will put you off acupuncture!

So happy about the release, so sad about the steelbook itself. Been waiting for ages to see some of miikes best works on Steel, but art on this one doesnt match at all previous arrow steels :(

Oh my god, yes! Not too excited about the art but this is quite brilliant anyway, I don't own the film yet so nothing's gonna stop me. :)

Really prefer the original key art so much over this. A shame it looks so bland. I guess I may pick one up anyway as it's one of Miike's best and I haven't seen it in such a long time - a natural reaction in a way I'm sure most would agree. :rofl:

that is not a valid opinion.
:naughty:
Neither is that. :p

The front cover is horrible. One of my favorite movies, but that cover art is so bad I won't be buying this. Arrow occasionally manage to come up with decent artwork, but most of the time it's just too damn comic-booky. When I do buy an Arrow release, it's nearly always just for the disc content, which is always fantastic. I wish so badly that their artwork was of the same caliber. Or even in the same ballpark.

Go in as blind as possible for maximum impact. Don't read anything in particular about the latter half! :naughty:;)
