Battle Royale (2000)

This is a collector’s set from Anchor Bay. It brings together two versions of the infamous Battle Royale, the sequel, and a special features disc. It is an awesome set that can be found at very affordable prices nowadays. I found it in the Amazon Warehouse, where many of the best film deals can be found. Of course you are at the mercy of whatever happens to be on clearance, so it may be the luck of the draw at times. Anyway, I love both of these films. They are nasty little films that pay great modern homage to gore effects, anime, exploitation, and even samuraiĀ films of the past. I am also still completely amazed at the similarities between this and The Hunger Games. I feel like this was blatantly stolen, and the crime was conveniently overlooked.
