    Ha, I had the second insert with mine too, didn't even look at it, just slid it in over the one in the case without even wondering why it was there. Oops.

    Ah! That makes sense. I figured it was something like that. The only other Error 4444 discs I've picked up are the Centipede Horror / Red Spell set and it didn't match those. Thanks for figuring it out.
    No worries, glad to help.

    One of the sleeves (the first one they produced, I assume, that needed to be corrected) lists the bonus features for Fatal Termination, not Run And Kill.

    Mine arrived today - it comes with a second cover outside of the shrink-wrapped package. Looks like some details are changed on the updated sleeve:
    • 4k restoration was changed to 2k restoration
    • 93 minute runtime changed to 91 minutes
    • 4k English dub cut (85 minutes) was removed on the updated sleeve
    • Man of Action: A Ridley Tsui Interview was removed on the updated sleeve
    • The Man from Cornwall: A Mike Abbott interview was removed from the updated sleeve
    • Chinese Dub Ending Song was removed on the updated sleeve
    • The Kids Aren't Alright: A video essay by Erica Shultz was added to the updated sleeve
    • Audio Commentary by Bruce Holecheck and Art Ettinger is added to the updated sleeve
    • Run& Kill x CFK On Location is added to the updated sleeve
    I haven't had a chance to watch it (or the extras) yet, but figured I'd share because I didn't expect the 2nd sleeve. I guess that was the "disc wrap" that caused the release's delay.

    Well put. Maybe that's why I tend to enjoy the Cat III films more than the pinky or roman porno stuff, I dig the lowbrow campy aesthetic. I find those have more re-watch value.
    Oh yeah don't get me wrong, I like both CAT III and Japanese exploitation. They just have that different feel. I like the camp elements in CAT III, it makes them really different.

    The jokes in The Untold Story are particularly bizarre, like someone crossed Henry Portrait of a Serial Killer with Vice Academy.

    Yeah, I don't think many films are more vicious than Red to Kill, although elements of RtK are so campy that dilutes its impact a bit, which is probably a good thing considering the subject matter.

    Most CAT III film's embrace of lowbrow slapstick and Police Academy-worthy humour makes them less disturbing to me than, say, the more seriously Sadean roman porno and pinky violence films from Japan.

    But that tonal whiplash, a common feature of Asian exploitation in my experience, is part of the strange charm of these films.

    I received my copy yesterday and eagerly viewed it last night.

    I enjoyed it, mainly because I'm a Kent Cheng fan, and it's really his show. But it's nowhere near as vicious as Red To Kill or some of the other top tier nasty Cat III classics. I found it darkly comedic and kept thinking of Judgement Night, that Emilio Estevez movie from the 90's. Normal guy stumbles into the underworld of gangsters and finds himself way out of his league sinking deeper, & deeper into shit.

    This has been pushed back a few weeks to a mid-February release.

    Ordering direct from Error 4444 from Canada is going to kill me, anyone know of a way to get Error 4444 releases for a reasonable price in the True North?

    Ordered, blind buy. (Although I wish I had the will power to wait for the standard edition to come out and save a few bucks!) I've picked up all of the Error 4444 Hong Kong releases--liked Centipede Horror, loved Red Spell Spells Red, was disappointed/underwhelmed by Fatal Termination. I'm a fan of Billy Tang's Red To Kill and his entry in the Raped By An Angel series (#5), so I'm hoping this lives up to my degenerate expectations.
    You will not be disappointed.
