  • Knight Rider Returns for a Stripped-Down Swag-Free Blu-ray Special Edition from Turbine

    Posted Fri Nov 10, 2023 at 06:37 AM PST by
    Knight Rider - Special Edition Turbine Medien Blu-ray Review

    Turbine returns to the action-packed world of David Hasselhoff's Michael Knight with a new
    swag-free Knight Rider: Special Edition Blu-ray collection! 

    Around this time last year German label Turbine Medien unleashed a massive (in size and scope) Knight Rider: 40th Anniversary Edition featuring every episode fully restored spread over 20 discs with two discs reserved for the follow-up films, the short-lived Team Knight Rider series, with an extra disc with over three hours of bonus features on top of posters, books, and a bunch of swag items. It was a lot and commanded a pretty hefty price tag. Now fans of the series anxious to get their hands on the excellent Blu-ray discs can now pre-order the stripped-down special edition. Reduced to the same 20 discs fo the main series and an additional Blu-ray for all of the same excellent extra features content, the set ditches the swag items, Team Knight Rider as well as the rather uneven follow-up TV films. Best of all for collectors, the price point is half the cost of the still available and very awesome 40th Anniversary Collection. Here's a look at what this set has to offer:

    Knight Rider: Special Edition Blu-ray 

     

    He's coming. A car, a computer, a man. Knight Rider!

The team includes Foundation director Devon Miles, computer experts Dr. Bonnie Barstow and April Curtis, and brave driver RC III. Together, they fight against Goliath, K.A.R.R. and numerous other villains to ensure that justice prevails.

    20 Blu-ray Discs offer the classic series - uncut and with complete dubbing.
    Bonus Blu-ray with three hours of world-exclusive interviews with the creators and much more.Special Edition with world-exclusive retro artwork by Paul Shipper.

    Tina and Ben, urban explorers from New York, explore abandoned places and buildings on their European trip. A special highlight: In the 1980s, a village in south-west France was sacrificed to the floods to prevent the region from being constantly flooded. At the bottom of the resulting lake there is said to be a villa that has been perfectly preserved ever since. What the two divers first consider a unique find turns into a nightmare. They realize the house has a cruel secret. Trapped and with dangerously low oxygen reserves, Tina and Ben ask themselves the frightening question: are we really alone in the house?

    Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, the directors of INSIDE and LEATHERFACE, invite you to dive into horror. THE DEEP HOUSE haunts with a haunted, otherworldly atmosphere and an exciting new haunted house twist. (Bloody Disgusting)

    Seriously though, where would The History Channel or The Learning Channel even be today without Harry and the Hendersons? Already the subject of numerous horror films including the infamous Charles B. Pierce flicks The Legend of Boggie Creek and Boggie Creek II... and the Legend ContinuesHarry and the Hendersons took a page out of Spielberg's playbook and made the shoewear-challenged beast everyone's favorite family friend. This movie delighted me as a kid and amazingly it still holds up well today. There was also a half-way decent sitcom that ran for three seasons. Now Turbine gives fans of this family favoite six new limited edition Mediabooks for the collection.

There is panic at first before the Hendersons realize the good-natured nature of their furry new roommate, Harry. But when not only the neighbors but also the press and a Bigfoot hunter find out about them, a race against time begins to bring the supposed monster to safety again...

  • Miss The Mediabook? Turbine Gives 2007's P2 A New Standard 2-Disc Blu-ray Release

    Posted Wed Apr 5, 2023 at 06:26 AM PDT by
    P2 - Standard Edition German Import Blu-ray Turbine Medien

    After all editions of their Mediabook release sold out virtually overnight, Turbine is reissuing 2007's survival horror thriller P2 with a standard softpack 2-Disc release. While you miss out on some of the cool art options and the booklet, you can now enjoy this slick thriller with the excellent transfer and either Atmos or Auro-3D audio!

    For some inexplicable reason, P2 has never been released on Blu-ray in the U.S. of A. There have been other Blu-ray releases in various import markets, but they used the old problematic VC-1 encode and just never really came to life. Turbine gives this fun gnarly little horror flick a new (and much improved) encode and then supes up the package with two excellent audio options. The film itself may not be the best feature of all time, but it works and offers up one of the gnarliest kills:

    Since there's no difference in the disc content, you can read our review of the Mediabook release and have an idea what you're in for. P2 - Turbine Mediabook Blu-ray Review

    P2 - Standard Edition Blu-ray


    In addition to offering the same two discs, one disc with Atmos and the other with Auro-3D, there is reversible insert artwork along with the same set of bonus features:

    Technical specifications:
    Language / Sound: German & English: Dolby Atmos, Auro & DTS 2.0
    Aspect Ratio: 2.35:1 (1080p Full HD)
    Subtitles: German, English, English (SDH)

    Running time: 97 minutes

    Bonus Material:
    + A new fear level - Making of* (approx. 12 min.)
    + Terror design - location and stunts* (approx. 5 min.)
    + A New Kind of Suspense - Director Franck Khalfoun* (ca. 3 min.)
    + Behind the scenes* (approx. 4 min.)
    + Audio commentary* with Alexander Aja, Franck Khalfoun and Gregory Levasseur
    + Cinema trailers, teasers and TV spots
