    I saw this on AICN a while back.
    all i wanna know is, "WHY?"

    really, i saw it on VHS years ago. I am liberal as hell when it comes to media, but this was pushing me into the corner where i would say, this shouldn't be made.

    Now a 30th anniversary edition on Blu-Ray...1080dpi of gruesomeness....
    maybe it is something to watch at halloween parties.

    any of you see this back in the day? any scenes you remember fondly?

    Saw a little bit of one once years ago. Saw, I think it was a chick, commit suicide by jumping off a building. When she hit the street she made this loud CRACK sound. I can still hear that sound to this day. Couldn't watch anymore after that.

    Some things are just a bit much to watch. Why would anyone actually want to watch FoD in freaking high def? Besides, wasn't FoD just mostly home videos and stuff? High def ain't gonna make much of a difference with that.

    They do it because they can. It's like putting wwII battle footage onto dvd. All it is is repackaging it on the new media so they can sell it and make a buck

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not equating wwII footage to this. wwII footage has some historical relevance, if only to help future historians and archaeologists better understand what they dig up in the middle of some field in europe.

    FOD was one of a kind. I first watched it when I was in the seventh grade. BTW, I have the DVD set Gorgon Video released a few years ago. I do not know anybody else who also owns this set. Monkey brains anybody?

    that one stood out to me.
    but i was distracted by the fact the man was sitting on a high chair on the bass boat with no stability and trying to
    wrangle a gator in its element.

    I shouldn't have used "fondly" in my question.

    FoD was like the dark things my folks spoke about- urban legends or not, like blades in halloween candy, the boogeyman, or strangers- this was something i wish i hadn't seen. Where was good pron when this stuff was lying around?

    I saw one that showed how they cut live rabbits feet off at an Asian restaurant or something. It was pretty horrible, and definitely real- there was no way the twitching rabbits were "cg"ed back then. I saw another scene where someone was scuba diving with a camera, and an fish, maybe a barracuda or something, quickly smacked the persons head. Well, it didn't look that bad, but the person stopped moving or something and the people pulled them up and found that the fish actually bit a chunk of the persons forehead off.

    They were pretty tasteless, and I'd be surprised if any of the real ones were sold in normal stores.
