Yeah, pretty much. There are three stages: the rape stage, the stage where they engage in consumption of bodily fluids and the torture/mutilation/death stage. That's the whole movie, with stories and lots of twisted shit to flesh it out.

He's the guy with so much money, he makes it rain on ugly bitches at a Nelly concert just to fuck with the heads of the pretty ones.
I've been collecting for the last 10 years. Always buy as many as I can during sales (usually that's when I knock out any box sets I have missed) etc.

I debate this with my buddy who also collects them. It got tougher when they went to Blu Ray because now I am double dipping on a lot of titles but before that I always enjoyed collecting every itteration of these films on Criterion so I have continued to do that. I don't think I will ever buy the standard DVD set for any of the Blu's that come out with the same DVD packaging but I still go to Rasputin and other record stores to find old ones. I recently picked up the original DVD version of Amarcord because it has different packaging. Plus I get a hard on owning 3 different out of print versions of The Third Man :-P

No I don't have an account but I check it every now and again. I have been a little out of the Blu/DVD game for the last few years, or at least not as into it as I was many years ago, but my film buddy in LA keeps me up to date if I miss anything. According to that site's forum I am going to Target as soon as it opens this morning to try and pick up one of those mysterious Harry Potter Ultimate Edition 7 Blu Rays that may or may not exist lol
It's the last of the Ultimate Edition sets which have been coming out each holiday season for the last few years. The only other way to get these disks is to buy the $350 collection which is why WB has not been advertising this set and only giving each Target one to two copies of it.
