Every super nerd has their "holy grail" or in my case "grails."  Over the years I've been lucky enough to obtain most of mine.  As of typing this, I've got two real ones left, an original US Release poster of The Gates of Hell and Mcfarlane Toys' JAWS box set.

Point being, this Hardbox is no longer on that list and I am completely in awe of it.  As far as the film and extras go there's nothing new here to see, hell, it's not even the most rare of the foreign release. pretty much standard fare as far as the German releases go.  But if you're like me you've got the necessary editions and still feel the need to own this one, why?  Because it's the motherfucking  SKINBOX!

As I mentioned earlier the extras are pretty standard, the second disc contains A Family Portrait.  It's a small hardbox, so it's about the size of a standard DVD.  The box has a textured/leather-like feel to it, hence it getting the title of "skinbox."  

Overall, it's a super nice looking set.  The idea behind it is a pretty obvious one, but it's done right and looks perfect.  While this isn't the rarest release this film has seen it's definitely one of the coolest, bound to be the highlight of anyone's Chainsaw collection.

One more down, two more to go.
