Add it to cart to get a lower price outside the UK without the local taxes.

Phenomenal deal on a really great set. I have it and it's really nice. I think the UK version deletes one commentary track on Dracula, but there's still a ton of extra content and I can confirm the discs are region-free

I can't believe Universal keeps dropping the price on this set. The DVDs took years to drop in price.

I bought this a couple years ago & it's excellent. My only complaint is as per there usual Universal put a upo flag on zoom, which bites for those of us with old full screen tv's.

I put cardboard boxes (painted black to match the color of my TV of course) on the top and bottom of my television. It's a perfect Letterbox view for my CRT.

I think Moo4 is saying that since it's Bluray, these are 1.33 images in a 1.77 box, so on a 1.33 tv, there's black bars on all four sides.


So how does shipping this to the USA work? And there's no PAL/NTSC nonsense to worry about is there?

Possibly by aeroplane or very fast boat. No PAL/NTSC nonsense with this set.

Let me clarify, how much is shipping to the states? I don't want to bother logging in and setting up if it turns out to have too many added fees.

Yep, went up double or so.

Yep. The issue is with zoom one can enlarge the picture by exactly 20% to defeat that. There is no logical reason for Universal to prohibit that, but they do. The only fix is to rip the br & remove the UPO's.

Pal vs NTSC is not an issue if you have a hi-def set. It is an issue on CRT's, but my Oppo converts it fine. Shipping is a bit slow; depends on whether they send from the UK(a little slow), or Germany (REALLY slow).

Somewhere in the help section it's stated. You can then Google the exchange rate & get the exact #. Other than the dreadful exchange rate, it's surprisingly low.

For blu-rays, you don't need to worry about PAL/NTSC - but you do have to worry about Region coding. This set is "Region Free", so you're good to go.

Sort of tempted to get this but in all honesty I'm not really sure how often I'd really watch it.

I put it on the family room TV every year at Halloween every year to play in the background for trick or treaters.

BTW : The set includes a 3D version of Creature as well

Deal's dead. I haven't seen any of the eight movies so 30 bucks was worth it to me. Specially for horror movies considered to be classics.
