Hellraiser Scarlet Box

Hey, did anyone get this?

I was going to...but forgot. The new transfers look good. Starting to kick myself for not buying this, but I'm hoping these new transfers will come out separately.

Re: Hellraiser Scarlet Box

The set is region B, right? Hopefully the transfers make it to the US properly.

I thought it was announced they would be released separately but without all the physical extras and the documentary.

Yep, it's Region B. Arrow mentioned that sets will start shipping this week. I ordered one from Amazon UK. Looking forward to this set.

I wasn't aware of that.

At that price, I hope you get a spoon and knife as well.

I read it on the BD.com forum as well as the Criterion one.

The 'Leviathan' Documentary in the Scarlet Box is also a LOT shorter than the Documentary actually runs on the (non-Arrow) DVD release.

From everything I have read, everyone who has seen Leviathan seems to be happy with a shortened version. I haven't seen it yet but from what I have seen, Leviathan was so bloated that it made the documentary as whole dull and meandering. Anyone here seen the whole thing?

I had thought about buying Leviathan but decided to wait until after I see what is on this box.

This is what I heard from many, many people as well on the horror blu group I'm in on FB. I pre-ordered it, hopefully it will come soon. I'm pretty excited. This set is actually what made me go region free.

Re: Hellraiser Scarlet Box

Just got my ship notice. But should be expecting it in about 3 weeks?! Hopefully it'll be sooner. I usually get deliveries about 7 days from when they ship.

Re: Hellraiser Scarlet Box

I don't have that box set but I do have the UK DVD box set, also in a Lemarchand Configuration box, which has the first three movies and IIRC Barker's short films before Hellraiser.

I have an extra one of those sets (still sealed), I've had since '09, that I should sell on eBay. I wonder what it's worth these days?

Re: Hellraiser Scarlet Box

About $60-70 according to the ones sold on EBay. I got the new set for $56 and change. I'm happy with that.

Re: Hellraiser Scarlet Box

Well, I just found out on Amazon's UK site that the Scarlet Box is available for around $59, so I jumped on that like Jared on a...carousel.

The price changes when you click the product description.

Re: Hellraiser Scarlet Box

Damn, that price skyrocketed. I'll assume it sold out rather quick.

Re: Hellraiser Scarlet Box

Arrow just announced a new box set that contains the three films and doesn't include the bonus disc or book.

Re: Hellraiser Scarlet Box

So I take it the scarlet box was limited and is already sold out? I didn't realize it was going to be limited.

Yeah. It was always mentioned that it was limited to 5000 copies.

Damn, that is a pretty set. I am ready for mine to get here!

Re: Hellraiser Scarlet Box

Even though the discs are Region B, all discs and features still play on my U.S. Panasonic player using the "stop' stop, top menu" trick.

Re: Hellraiser Scarlet Box

Well, that's because you have a region free player. Pretty much like all of us who bought this or are interested. It is really Region B, so it won't work in a regular player.

Re: Hellraiser Scarlet Box

one of the corners got a little banged up on my way to me [whaa-whaa "pity party"] but wow - what a box set - can't wait to hear the commentary track for Hellbound.
