ARROW FILMS Halloween Sale through Oct 18

I'm surprised that this hasn't been announced here but Arrow is having a sale on their site where a lot of their Horror blus are 50% off.

It's a great deal for their region free stuff or if your player is region free.

I got all 4 House films for 44 bucks shipped to the States.

I posted about it in the Cult/Genre thread, but I agree that it's deserving of its own thread!

Sorry Adam! Didn't see it there.

This is a great sale. I wish Shout/Scream's Halloween Sale was just as good.

Have said this before, but I really should get a region-free player.

I've had good luck with my Seiki SR4KP1. It looks like they're getting a little tricker to find, though.

Looks like no extras in the Arrow titles in iTunes, right?

Re: ARROW FILMS Halloween Sale through Oct 18

It's indeed a great sale, but the only problem is that I already own pretty much all the titles I want that Arrow carries, albeit inferior versions. So almost every disc I buy is only an upgrade for PQ/extras.

But that's the whole point of buying Arrow titles!

But when I see I have THREE Blu-Rays each of Carrie, The Thing, Phenomena, and Tenebrae, that's when I start to wonder if I'm spending my money wisely.

Most are just the movie. Some of them have extras. And I've seen extras added later. So more titles might have extras in the future.

Out of this week's list, The Crazies is the only one with extras.

But some other Arrow movies are packed. Deep Red, Re-Animator and Donnie Darko all have a ton of extras.

I think I say that every time there's a sale on UK Arrow titles. The new City of the Living Dead release is driving me even closer.

Thanks. Tempting, but think Iíll hold out hope for one more holiday sale season that a mod-able one will turn up at Costco (return policy).

Thanks Dave! Only checked the first couple earlier, but heading to iTunes again to check out The Crazies...

No titles that interest me this time. I may bite on the next Noir sale.

No offense, but that seems like an oddly specific plan. I'd research which players are available NOW with good reviews, and start that way.

I'd also suggest that if a region-free player is on your horizon, why not start collecting discs now when they're on sale? Instead of holding off, buying a Costco player later, then not having any discs on sale when you do get one. Or is it that we both know if you get some Arrow discs, you'd be compelled to get a player to play them on, and might end up overpaying for the player?

Re: ARROW FILMS Halloween Sale through Oct 18

Two questions from someone that only has a few of the US box sets. (I also have the House UK set)

1. Which Arrow version of The Thing has the best transfer?
2. Which Arrow titles are considered must have?

Re: ARROW FILMS Halloween Sale through Oct 18

These are titles that are no longer being sent out with the collector's booklet. If anyone has any these booklets and willing to sell for $3-$5, let me know:

The Mutilator
Burnt Offerings
The Slayer
Hellgate
Bloodrage
Raising Cain
The Raven
Incredible Melting Man (very irksome because the artwork says the booklet is included!)
Videodrome
Tales of Terror

Yup. I waited too long to pull the trigger on it as well. I'd already made up my mind to get around $50 or so of movies, so instead I got

Hounds of Love
Five Dolls for an August Moon
To Live and Die in LA
Rollerball
Porky's

1. They have the same disc content over 2 releases (steel book & non steel book). Shout is re-releasing The Thing with a 3rd disc in a steel book with a 4k restoration in a month I believe. No one knows for sure, but the speculation is that it will be the same version as Arrow's 4k restoration. If you have a region free player, then you might want to buy the cheaper Arrow edition.

Which brings us to question 2.

If you have a reliable region free player, then check out Arrow's site and see what you need. Most titles are way cheaper than they would be if you buy the U.S. editions.

I never got around to getting a region free player, but the region free discs I've bought in the past have been awesome.

Thanks man! I just missed out on the Limited Edition. Sold out while I was adding titles to my cart. I just picked up the standard release. Price is too good to pass on. I knew about the new Scream steelbook. I'll probably get that too in time. Will have to watch the prices.

I've been wanting to go region free for years but this sale pushed me over the edge. I bought 43 titles. Now if only Scream/Shout would actually run good sales again. They have been getting and responding to pricing complaints on their Facebook page all week.

Re: ARROW FILMS Halloween Sale through Oct 18

Tempted to pick up "The Cemetery Man" since it appears that one's region free. Anyone have this one already that can confirm, and comment on it's quality?
