Assault on Precinct 13 Image double pack question?

I saw this at Sun Coast today on my break. It contained Assault on Precinct 13 & Dreamscape for $14. Meanwhile I found a single copy of the new Assault SE priced at $19. So the two pack is a better deal(even though I don't like Dreamscape all that much).

Also of note,it appears the new SE is in the two pack! Since it says "New Special Edition" on the cover. Yet the sticker listing the features was not visible,it may be covered by the 'double pack' cardboard advertisement.

The small picture on the cardboard advertises the old non-anamorphic version of Assault.

So is it is a mistake that the new SE is included,could a misprint in coverart have been used,or could the new SE really be included with the set?

If anyone has picked this up. Please let me know. I would hate to waste that money & end up with the old non-16.9 edition.

unless they packed them differently, i bought it ( the 2 pack) at borders for $11.99 and it was the SE- not the old version

is the case a snapper or a keepcase? if its a keepcase, you have the anamorphic version. if not, then your screwed.

It appears to be in a keepcase. Yet I was just making sure,since some people have reported buying certain movies & got the wrong version(older release,rated release etc) despite what the outside packaging showed.

I have not seen this at Borders or anywhere else. $14 is not a bad price,considering I can't find the stand alone SE at that price. Everyone seems to have it for $17 at the lowest.

it's keepcase...
anamorphic ("newly remastered blah blah blah")
some decent extra (interview with John Carpenter on some theater)

overall, nice decent disc... picture quality is ok.
mono sound

go get it at DDD for $7.89 or something... i got mine months ago

fantastic deal.

Dreamscape is ok... got DTS sound

hope it helps
