Has anyone got the Optimum Home Entertainment entertainment version of this Video Nasty? If so, is it as good as the Blue Underground release?

The usually reliable www.dvdcompare.net hasn't got a comparison for these two versions.

Yes I'd like to know the answer to this too.The Optimum disc is bound to be a vanilla one though sadly.

I prefer the artwork over the Blue Underground one so may be tempted to buy it at some stage.

I haven't seen this print yet either. The only extras listed are the trailer and a photo gallery.

Having had a dig around on the magical interwebs, the picture quality of the UK release is spot on; however like vincenzo has said, it's pretty much bare bones.

I think the old video/BU sleeve is superb. The Optimum one looks like something from The Amityville Horror.

I'm serious, I think the R2 cover is eye catching. The picture I posted doesn't do it justice but when you have it in your hand it really does look good, especially with the killer in the top window .
