Here's the lowdown on this release (as I have an advanced copy, and not a screener, but the actual DVD), the movie included is the truncated Roger Corman (let's take out all of the good one liners for time reasons and to make this campy bit of inspired cheese, less cheesy, which face it, is the one reason to watch it, for it's cheese factor) version, which sucks space donkey testicles, as Corman's version manages to suck a lot of the fun out of this movie.
Here's the rub though, Shout! Factory has a nice gallery of the stuff that Corman cut out, courtesy of some lower grade Euro print, but the whole Euro version should have been included as a directors cut like they did with, Forbidden World, where the second disc held the director's cut, and as this set has two discs as well, they could easily have included the uncut version.
I have the, Substance version that came out years ago, and it's got all of the missing line included, but the major problem with that release is about 10 insanely loud pop sounds on the audio track that occur at odd intervals through out the movie (which tend to strike when you're least expecting them, thus startling the bejesus out of you) so it would have been nice if the international cut had been included here (minus the loud sound glitches) because as it stands, the Corman version takes a lot of the fun out of this film, which is too bad.
So if you have the, Substance version, you're gonna want to hold onto it (sound glitches and all) because that's the better cut of this film, even if the quality on the Corman version is better (and to think, I almost sold my, Substance version, having no idea that the, Shout! Factory version was going to be the far inferior Corman cut, dodged a bullet there :)
***UPDATE: In a letter I received from, Shout Factory concerning the non-inclusion of the long sought after Director's Cut on their recent release of, StarCrash, they said that (and I quote): "Yours is the first complaint we have received. If there were a lot of complaints, we'd look to see about maybe doing another version at some point", so apparently if they get enough complaints concerning this problem, then they will eventually do what they should have done in the first instance (and failed to do so).
So goto the, Shout Factory site and inundate them with emails requesting that the director's cut be included in a new version of this DVD (I had the email link here, but for some inane reason on Amazon's part, they bleeped it out (!!!)
