I was recently perusing the aisles of my local Media Play when I came upon the DVD for The Mangler 2. Just out of curiousity, I examined the cover. Can someone explain how this direct-to-video sequel to a movie that not many people cared about to begin with gets the 16x9 treatment and a respectable line-up of extras, but the Dario Argento film Sleepless gets the pan-and-scan shaft? This makes no sense. What gives? In the case Artisan wonders why they lost money on this title, this is the answer. I will be persuing a widescreen version from another region.
