"Santa Sangre" 2 Disc Set REGION 1 on Ebay?

I thought no region 1 of this disc existed. I asked the seller how it could be a region 1 and he replied with this statement:

"It is,
Don't buy it I know you won't like it."

Here is the link:

It is a bootleg. There is no R1. Look at how small the cover art is in the picture. It probably is just PAL R0, my guess is that it isn't NTSC.

thanks. I figured as much. Did you take a look at the bidding section? The bidders' identities are protected. Hmmm...could he be bidding up his own price?

your link above is goes to an ebay "page is not responding" so either the link for his auction changed or he pulled it down (busted!).

i thought that all bidders identities are now protected. they incorporated some new privacy functions a couple weeks ago, and i thought this was one.

There are two copies on ebay irhgt now. One that claims to be a r1 ntsc version, and one that says it is pal. Both seem to have the same images of an anchor bay cover.

The official release is only 6.98 at amazon.co.uk. Do you guys really not have an all-region/all-format player? Many of the best players on the market, including the best quality-to-price ratio players, are all-region/format. There is simply no need to mess around with dodgy bootlegs and unscrupulous sellers.

link shouldn't be broken.

here it is again:

Regarding a new bidding rule, I just checked out some items on Ebay and quite a number still had the bidders' identities exposed so I don't know.

The fact that both items on Ebay use the same picture is suspicious. What's up with that?
