Shit You Should Import : From Dusk Till Dawn Titty Twister Edition Blu-ray Set!

Photobucket

Here in the states, From Dusk Till Dawn has been released countless times on various different formats, from individual VHS, DVD and Blu-ray releases, to mega packs of all the films in the franchise, on both DVD & Blu.  But still, all we've ever gotten out of the films are boring old discs, housed inside boring old packaging.   BOOOOORING!!

Outside of the fifty nifty United States, it's a whole different story.  A few years back, Italy received a limited edition (numbered to only 700) set of all three films, plus the documentary Full Tilt Boogie, that is hands down one of the coolest DVD sets ever released (seen above).  Included in the package was a pretty damn cool long sleeve t-shirt, which had Clooney's tattoo from the movie printed onto it (along the arm and onto the neck, just like his was!), along with some postcards.  But the real awesome thing about the set was the packaging itself, which was a mini replica model of the Titty Twister bar, that held the DVD digi pack under it.  Check out an unboxing video over on YouTube to see the set in all its glory!

 For whatever reason, I was browsing around the French version of Amazon the other day, and I stumbled upon yet another foreign Dusk Till Dawn release, that gives the Italian one a run for its money.  Though it looks like this one only has the first film on it, on both Blu-ray and DVD.  It comes out November 20th in France, and can be pre-ordered right now for around 32 US dollars.

Check out what's included in the set!

Santanico tattoo

There are some other little goodies in the set, though it's hard to tell exactly what they are, due to the rough translations on the page.  Looks like there's a Santanico mini poster and some pins.  You can see it all for yourself on Amazon French!

**UPDATE : LOOKS LIKE THE SAME SET WILL BE HITTING THE UK ON NOVEMBER 26TH, WITH A PRICE OF $40**

Even if you don't have a Region Free player, this set may be worth picking up for the bar sign and the super cool shot glasses alone!

I currently own the italian set though I couldn't help but pre-order the new Titty Twister edition. I adore the film and it seems duplicates will continue to find their way into my collection as long as stunning sets like this become available.

God damn collectors bug!
