Like the first volume, this is also a mix of 4:3 and letterboxed 16:9. Mono sound.

You need to download all the files, around 2,7Gb in total, then extract them with Stuffit Expander (Mac version, Windows version). I know some of you who downloaded Volume 1 had troubles with it, but if you get the latest version, there should be no troubles. Beware that it takes a long time to expand. Voulume 1 was around 1,5 hours to extract! Just be patient.

I´m planning to upload it to Cinemageddon when I have the time. If you beat me to it, let me know, and I´ll add a link here ;)

All files you need to download is found here: http://www.megaupload.com/?f=HLJN0BAZ

Update 8th June 2009: You can also download it through torrent on Cinemageddon here.

Update 17th March 2010: It´s now available on Rapidshare here.

The awsome cover is once again made by Stian André, check out his site here! He also thought of the title! Thanks!!!

I hope you´ll enjoy this volume!


  1. Looks like it will be great, but I'm running into an issue where it's asking for a Password before I can run Stuffit- any suggestions?

  2. It won't extract with the free version of stuffit. You need the full one.

  3. You don´t need the full version, just all the parts.

    There is _no_ password. On Vol.1 someone had that problem, don´t know why, but they just clicked ok and it unstuffed.

  4. check out the comments on Vol.1 here:
    there seems to be the same "problems" with the files.

  5. Tried to unpack the files and ended up with a folder with only 500MB. Will try again on my work computer. And if that doesn't work I'm gonna do to a friend's house and try it on his Mac.

  6. First I have to say : Great work!
    I found your blog while I was searching for some old trailers, 2 months ago.
    I registered with Cinemaggedon to download your first DVD and now I'm stuck on it!
    So thank you for making me discover CG.
    Now I'm impatiently waiting for the torrent version of this one! ;-)


  7. I finally got it to unpack correctly. I think. I had to use the Stuffit recovery function and ended up with a 2.83 GB folder. Burnin' it to DVD-R now.

    Damn. You sure make a brother work hard for a free DVD.

  8. sounds about right size. Let me know how it goes!

    Stuffit ain´t the best, but it works for Mac and PC. If Rar had worked, I´d have used that...

  9. The disc plays perfectly. All the buttons work and all the menus work. And, so far, all the navigation work, too. Thanks! Now to make copies and pass them out to friends and foes.

    And, if you don't mind me asking, what did you use to build the DVD menus with? You're getting some great results with it.

  10. That´s good news! Hope you and your friends will like it! :)

    I used DVD Studio Pro. Great program. Tokk me some time to add all the navigation, but it was worth it. Hate it when navigation is weird (or: not to my liking ;) Next DVD I´ll play with motion in the menues.

  11. Where can I download the cover in high resolution like the cover of volume 1?

  12. Hi,
    the cover is in the same folder as the files.

  13. I'm kind of a late arrival to the scene here, but wow...what an amazing comp! Glad it was still up and available, and I had no trouble grabbing it (although MegaUpload is a drag for me...do you ever use RapidShare, or one of those multi-server upload sites? I'm sure that debate has been waged elsewhere and often on here, so I'll try to stay out of it).

    Anyway! Thanks for a totally entertaining - and totally pro - package! I look forward to fishing around and finding a whole lot more...

  14. Thanks for the kind words! Really appreciate it :)

    About megaupload: I know it's not the best, but it is the only site I have found (at least at the time I found it), that would allow big files, 500Mb. It also don't delete files that has been inactive for 30 days.

    If you know of any that can do the same, but faster, and is free, let me know!
