Terrific genre hybrid
An unusual blend of adventure, epic, horror, mystery and romance which amazingly, works. You will not have seen a film quite like this. The film is presented with 2 audio tracks: the original french with optional english subtitles, and an english dub. While the english dub is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1, the french is only presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo. Extras on the disc are the theatrical trailer and an 18 minute interview with naturalist Michel Louis about the real life 'Beast of Gevaudan'. Also included is a 24 page booklet. While these extras are welcome, this still does not compare to the special editions available in other countries (notably the 4 disc ultimate edition in France) and you end up feeling short changed by this release.
