This did better at the box office than THE TIME MACHINE did in 1960 dollars? Other than an amazing and visceral opening title sequence, this movie sucks the big one. Who made the decision to Blu-ray this, and why? Why of all the films you might have brought to us?

Is this Unrated version making an appearance for the first time?. Never saw the film when it came out but I might blind-buy this. Has anyone seen Val Kilmer lately? I've seen him in two direct-to-video movies (seems all he's doing these days) - he looks bloated and seems to be sleepwalking through the films. He's still too young to be a has-been, good actor also. So sad.
RIP Roberto Gomez Bolanos.

The Director's Cut was previously released on DVD. I'm not sure, but I think it might in fact be the *only* version of the film to have been released on DVD.

How about MGM releasing the AIP 1977 version? Then at least we'd have all 3 available.

I agree that I'd love to see it on blu-ray but I won't be holding my breath waiting for it. The interesting thing about the novelization of the film was the ending. It had Michael York spotting a ship and then turning to Barbara carrera and seeing a animal's fang in her mouth. The idea was that she was one of Moreau's perfect creations. That would have been a better ending.

There's a novelization of a film that's based on a novel?

Indeed there is! I have a small collection of vintage movie tie-in paperbacks, and picked that one up a few years ago. Looking at it later, I saw that it was indeed a novelization of that screenplay.
