    I've been hearing Grindhouse is going to release Cannibal Holocaust but have not been able to find out anything about their timeframe.

    I've been holding out to pick this up but now I see some of the online sellers are touting an anamorphic version that I could order today.

    Should I continue waiting or just buy this one?

    Thanks for the help.

    I can see no reason to hold off. The current anamorphic disc is quite good. The transfer is really nice for such a low-budget film.
    Do a search here for the disc and you'll see some good reviews:

    I'm home and found the review that I was looking for before. From the SexGoreMutants website, here is a snippet of the review (full thing can be found at http://www.sexgoremutants.f9.co.uk/holocnew.html):

    Thanks for the info. Looks like I will give it a try. Only wish there was more info about the Grindhouse release.

    Thanks.

    Can it be true? It looks like Grindhouse may finally be releasing this. A lot of people have been getting emails from Grindhouse saying the 2-disc 25th Anniversary edition is coming out October 25th. Cannibal Holocaust.net has a big banner up that says

    Well let's hope so. I broke this "news" of "coming soon" back in 1999. [​IMG]

    It's supposedly going to be available for pre-order very soon. I've seen it posted at a few places. I'm going to drop them an e-mail to see if I get the same response.
    EDIT: After I posted this message I found a post at dvdmaniacs.net from someone at Grindhouse.
