Overview

Mantis in Lace is presented in full frame with an aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The audio is in Dolby Digital 1.0 Mono. In keeping with the "trippy" nature of the feature, there are several fun short films included on the disc. "LSD: Trip or Trap!" is a 19-minute examination of this youth epidemic, produced in association with the Inglewood Police Department (the bias is very obvious). "Alice Goes to Acidland" is a 12-minute nudie acid trip in both black-and-white and color. Finally there is "Girl in a Cage," a six-minute, jungle-theme burlesque routine. Other extras include a gallery of stills and lobby cards of films from producer Harry Novak, as well as theatrical trailers for Mantis in Lace, The Curious Dr. Humpp, The Mad Butcher, and Frankenstein's Castle of Freaks. The disc also contains a three-and-a-half minute "Alternate Psychedelic Murder Sequence." The final feature is an unprecedented "Never-Before-Seen Outtake" section, with raw footage matched to the music effects track for the film. What makes it unprecedented is the fact that the footage runs approximately 92 minutes, making it longer than the feature film! This is a great disc.
