    Just wondering whether the DVD special edition contains the same material as in the Unrated Director's cut Laserdisc.

    Had in my Laserdisc library and just watch it last nite:

    Teaser Trailer

    Oiginal Theatrical Trailer

    A Gathering of Magic- A behind the scences faeturette

    Clive Barker

    Scott Bakula.Famke Janssen

    Shooting the Pantages scene

    Special effects : Daniel Von Bargen

    Director at Work

    Deleted Scenes

    Storyboard to film comparison

    Still gallery

    Conceptual Artwork

    Production Notes

    OAR 1.85:1

    Just curious as I do not have the DVD SE. Anyway Clive

    Barker is sure one helluva horror & gore director.

    They're the same except the dvd has a better transfer and the LD has cooler packaging. The dvd is only $10 in the US so I have both.

    I'm not sure that all those features are on the disc. I'll check when I get home. If you look at this link to the back cover it doesn't look like all those features are in there, but I haven't explored the disc thoroughly.

    Leon,

    I wish the dvd had all that stuff! The MGM dvd contains Barkers Commentary, Deleted Scenes, Isolated Score, one trailer and a collectable booklet(the usual MGM 8 page thing). I'd love to see the concept art and stuff from the laserdisc, especially any drawings by Barker himself, but I don't think that there will ever be a reissue of this one. The current one does have a nice 16x9 transfer and some pretty nifty animated menus though.

    And your're right about Barker been a good horror director. I can't wait for the Nightbreed director's cut disc which is supposed to be due this year and I wish someone would give Imajica the same screen treatment that Lord Of The Rings got.

    Richard

    Well Richard,

    I guess I got myself a collector's Laserdisc. Also

    forgot to mentioned that its a Deluxe Letter Box Edition.

    The cover is completely different from the DVD SE.

    The LD packaging is still one of my all time favorites. I remember propping it up for show because it looked so damned cool. Not to mention that the film itself was such a wonderful surprise.

    The DVD's still nice, but I'll never be able to part with that LD!

    The LD has better picture quality. It have better colours and the resolution is about the same. The LD has more stuff and have a MUCH, MUCH better cover (gatefold).

    So keep the LD and take the money and spend them on a new movie.
