Supplements shared with the standard DVD include a pair of audio commentaries (the first with director Darren Lynn Bousman and actors Bill Moseley, Alexa Vega, and Ogre, and the second with Bousman, creators Darren Smith and Terrance Zdunich and music producer Joseph Bishara), plus a pair of featurettes ("From Stage to Screen," "Legal Assassin: A Repo Man").

A host of additional exclusives feature bonus audio commentary by Bousman and actress Paris Hilton on select scenes, two featurettes ("Zydrate Anatomy: Amber Sweet: Addicted to the Knife," "Chase the Morning: Blind Mag: The Voice of GeneCo"), deleted scenes and video sing-alongs.
