Radioactive Dreams on DVD-plus OST


Ok, this DVD is out since early last year already, and by now not easy to find anymore,if you do, it`s still pricey.

First of all-the quality of the DVD isn`t the best, they didn`t take a good master. I`ve been reading that there is supposed to exist a remastered version, picture and sound, but until that materialises, it`s just rumours.

The small lable JAM put this out, as single DVD and as Special Edition, including the soundtrack.

They were originally asking 35 Euros(roughly 50 $) for it, which is a bit much, especially when considering the poor quality.

And the single DVD sold for 8 or 9 Euros.

The limited (1000) SE has a different cover than the single -disc DVD.

Still, it`s the first officially released version on DVD. But I also read that they forgot to license the DVD logo, which resulted in Amazon and other retailers  pulling it from sale. (Still a few on sale, but not directly from Amazon)

Let`s hope there is a remastered version out there, and somebody more quality-oriented decides to give this film a chance.

After all, it´s one of Albert Pyun`s better ones.

The film comes in two versions, the german cut, which is slightly longer, and the US cut.

It comes in german and english, Deutsch (Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo), Englisch (Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo)

And  it`s widescreen16:9 – 1.85:1( still not the original aspect ratio) , even if the intro is fullscreen, but that was intended that way.

You can still find a few of them on Amazon.de

  1. I have this on VHS, and tried giving it a shot once a while ago, but for some reason I just couldn’t finish it. I think I just wasn’t in the right kind of mood for this type of film. Maybe I should give it another shot soon. Though I would like to see it in Widescreen.
