After all editions of their Mediabook release sold out virtually overnight, Turbine is reissuing 2007's survival horror thriller P2 with a standard softpack 2-Disc release. While you miss out on some of the cool art options and the booklet, you can now enjoy this slick thriller with the excellent transfer and either Atmos or Auro-3D audio!
For some inexplicable reason, P2 has never been released on Blu-ray in the U.S. of A. There have been other Blu-ray releases in various import markets, but they used the old problematic VC-1 encode and just never really came to life. Turbine gives this fun gnarly little horror flick a new (and much improved) encode and then supes up the package with two excellent audio options. The film itself may not be the best feature of all time, but it works and offers up one of the gnarliest kills:
