Ghoulies IV (1994) - German Blu-ray + DVD FAO Paul

Postby Paul_Rudoff » 21 Feb 2024 21:32

I noticed that you have a page for the Ghoulies IV (1994) DVD, but not for the Blu-ray. Since I just purchased the region-free German Mediabook, I thought I would give you the specs for it.

Do note that the packaging/disc says Region B for Blu, and Region 2 for DVD, but both discs have been confirmed to be REGION-FREE. The Blu-ray played without an issue in my Region A-locked Playstation 3, and Nero Infotool reports the DVD as "Region: All".

However, the DVD is in PAL format, so the PS3 still won't play it.

The copy I bought is in "Mediabook" packaging, which is equivalent to the U.S. Digibook packaging, though I think it's slightly taller. The essays and notes in the book are in German, so I can't read it. I think the copy I bought is one of a few different covers, but all with the same discs.

Both discs include the same content: the movie in 1.78:1 ("widescreen"), the movie in 1.33:1 ("open matte"), and English and German trailers.

Some photos are included at the end for reference.

How many pages? Also does it come with a card or sticker? Noticing that on the photos with Amazon.
