    Because they actually were! They didn't even have a script, just an outline of events. Half the movie is fighting, the other half is total ad libbing. That's where the beauty lies.

    C'mon Dobbs...have a little fun. You're starting to sound like DVDfanatic-9...hating every movie ever made.

    I finally got my "Oh My God Edition" as well as Trailer Wars "World War IX Edition". Came packaged extremely well. As I figured, no signed poster though :( At least I finally got my stuff.

    I wish they'd just put up a regular t-shirt with the Dragon Sound logo on it. I hate the way a sleeveless shirt looks, but I'd buy the hell out of a Dragon Sound t-shirt.

    Damn fast shipping...this 7" sounds fucking good too...definitely not ripped from the film as the production sounds 10x better and there is no audience clapping or anything. We're these re-recorded or are these the original tracks Angelo recorded?...because they sound really good. Anyone know?

    Been there, man. I held off for years and finally said fuck it and spent $30 on a DVD copy of Body Bags a couple of weeks ago only to have Scream Factory announce an uncut blu-ray literally the next fucking day. I feel your pain. It's part of the movie collecting game. I know that doesn't make you feel any better, but you're not alone. Its happened to us all at one time or another.

    Stuff like this happening is worse when the movie is not worth more than $12.

    This has been on my radar for a while now, but I haven't really looked into it until now. I have to say... It looks pretty fucking amazing. And for $12.99?....ORDERED!

    Love this movie! I got the movie on BD a few weeks back, and have seen it 4 times by now, and it gets better for every damn time. The acting is so wonderfully bad, that it adds another layer of brilliance to the movie :D

    "Against the ninjaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaassss..."

    Those songs got stuck in my head for over a week. Gotta get the vinyl! :D

    I gave in and ordered the "Tough Guys" package + 7'' (which would be the "Oh My God" Edition" edition but that's sold out) + the freakin' tank top.

    Now I'm listening to the soundtrack which is great. I quite like the idea that you get an instant download of the movie/soundtrack. Maybe other studios should consider this. I might wait with watching this particular film though until I get the Blue. I'm sure it's more fun that way as I can have a couple of beers for adequate viewing experience which I couldn't do today/on a work day.

    ^^ does the download soundtrack sound like it was ripped from the film?

    EDIT: The "download a sample" link worked for this time so I was able to answer my question. They are ripped from the film but they sound excellent. My life is better now that I have "Against the Ninja" and "Friends" on my iPod. I can't help but grin ear-to-ear and giggle when those sounds play. The two best 80's sounds ever produced.

    Seriously, anyone that hasn't seen this amazing film is doing themselves a grave injustice.

    I know this film is probably awful, but I had to pull the trigger at that price. Dying to see it!! :)
