THE FEATURES ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Here is the other controversial topic of this release. Fans were very happy when it was announced that this release would include the original mono soundtrack that the film was produced in. The Critical Mass blu-ray had the mono soundtrack, but that version has been out of print for a while. The problem lies in that there is a consistent sibilance and hiss throughout the whole track. Any time someone says anything that has an “S” sound it becomes distorted, like they have a really bad lisp.
*UPDATE* I got into contact with Shout! Factory and they sent me a replacement disc. I got it fast too. I popped it in and it seems like they have fixed the problem. There is still that hard 'S' sound, but it isn't as bad as before and that is probably how it sounded in the first place. Way to go Shout! Factory for fixing this problem in a very timely manner.
