Studio Canal Hammer, Australian

Anyone know if the Australian versions of the Hammer films released by Studio Canal are region free? Devil Rides Out, Reptile, etc.
I know the UK versions are locked. Hard to really know sometimes which version is being reviewed.
Deep Discount lists Devil Rides Out with statement, "Although cover says region B, verified region free" on Aussie version.

Personally, I can't confirm as I don't own any of these, but I found some info on them here.

Page 3 has the some (if not all of them) are not region locked.

Both titles you list are reported as being Region B locked by both DVD Compare and DVD Beaver, so it looks pretty conclusive that they are not region free.

If you're a Hammer fan, it's basically a requirement to go region free.
