  • Commentary by Film historian Kat Ellinger 
  • Image gallery with soundtrack 
  • Spanish audio 
  • English subtitles 
  • 4K restoration from the original negative 
  • Mini press book reproduction booklet including writings about the film by Scott Carlson (limited edition only) 
  • Double sided mini lobby card reproductions (limited edition only) 
  • High quality side loaded slipcase (limited edition only) 
  • Reverse Blu-ray wrap featuring the original Spanish title and poster art
