Arrow Video's City of the Living Dead Blu-Ray

Is it Region-less/free and or playable worldwide? Are the extras on the Blu-Ray disc in this set in SD and PAL-encoded?

this edition trumps the Blue Underground edition - can't wait to hear the commentaries (especially Giovanni Lombardo Radice's, since his commentary for 'Cannibal Ferox' is quite good) and watch the extras.

I did that too. Pretty reasonable for an import, especially if you buy Dawn and Day.

As did I for the matching slip cover (next to Dawn/Day) and the really cool bonus artwork. Works out to be about the same as the domestic BU version.

Re: Arrow Video's City of the Living Dead Blu-Ray

According to Arrow Films themselves their edition of City of the Living Dead will be uncut, uncensored, and Region-free/playable worldwide. They also said that all of the extras will be in HD except the one called "Fulci In The House: The Italian Master Of Splatter". It'll be in SD and PAL-encoded. :-(

^ I know that DVDBeaver reviews sometimes slips the cog once in a while, but they don't denote that extra as such. My LG bluray player actually plays Region 0 PAL encoded DVD's, I assume it won't have a problem playing the' Fulci in the House' featurette ... right?

Re: Arrow Video's City of the Living Dead Blu-Ray

Just a heads up for everyone buying this edition. Aside from two extras, the HD extras are in 1080i/50hz. So if you have a ps3 or any other sony bluray player, their not going to play. Film works fine, as well as the trailer and picture gallery ().

None of the reviews I read pointed this out, so I'm pretty much left out. Unless ofcourse my sony player blows up in the future.

Re: Arrow Video's City of the Living Dead Blu-Ray

(Forgot we had a thread for this title)

Just got my City of the Dead UK version in. Same packaging as Dawn/Day.

The 6 postcards also mention off several new DVD versions of films that may or may not show up in America:
Macabre
Sleepless
House of the Cementary
Silent Night Deadly Night
Bloodfeast 2
Street Trash
Two Evil Eyes
Martin
Terror of the Opera
Stendhal Syndrome
The Player

They look like DVD copies in similar packaging...here's hoping for BDs of them!

And don't worry - it's Region Free (or atleast A an B)

Pretty typical for UK BDs. Not sure why Sony always has this issue.
