WOLF CREEK Ultimate Limited Edition Blu-ray Unboxing & Review
ViaVision Entertainment have just released Greg McLean’s WOLF CREEK in an Ultimate Limited Edition to 2 Disc Blu-ray, with unique packaging, two cuts of the film, loaded with Special Features.
Capped at 1000 units, ViaVision’s WOLF CREEK: ULTIMATE LIMITED EDITION is a two-disc Blu-ray set, housed in a 3D Lenticular Hardcase, individually numbered and features 6 glossy art cards with production stills from the film.
The set includes both the original theatrical cut of the film and the ‘Uncut’ version also.
This ‘Uncut’ version features two additional scenes though neither of particular merit. One of Kristy sneaking out of Ben’s room and the other of Liz exploring Mick’s lair and happening upon the remains of some of his previous victims.
The only other differences are two alternate shots that are slightly grizzlier and onscreen a little longer than the ones used in the theatrical cut.
Transfers of both cuts are existing masters and more than suffice until a potential 4K Ultra HD release down the track. Note that while the theatrical cut has a DTS-HD 5.1 audio track the ‘Uncut’ version only has LPCM 2.0 Stereo.
In terms of Special Feature content, this release does a great job of compiling all of the legacy content that was featured on Roadshow’s previous three- disc DVD release.
• Audio Commentary
with writer/director/producer Greg McLean, co-producer Matt Hearn
and stars Cassandra Magrath and Kestie Morassi
• The Making Of Wolf Creek
• Deleted Scenes
• Meet Mick Taylor: An Interview with John Jarratt
• Photo Gallery
• Broken & Twisted Music Clip by Auxillary One
• Storyboard & Production Sketch Montage
• Theatrical Trailers
My only compliant for this release is the absence of any newly commissioned content like even a retrospective interview with filmmaker Greg McLean.
Now if you’re keen on acquiring a copy, your time to act is now as while ViaVision Entertainment are completely sold out, there is stock available at JB Hi-Fi.
If you don’t care for the fancy packaging and art cards, the good news is that ViaVision are releasing a Standard Version of the release on July 5.
