Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

The limited edition of Society is out of print, with the comic book and digipack. There will be a standard, non limited release available indefinitely.

edit: Some confusion over this, apparently the US edition is limited only? But the UK is getting a standard edition?

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Okay, here's an Amazon pre-order for the standard edition, to be released in September, so only pull the trigger if you want the comic and digipack:

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

For you Region B-capable users, Arrow in the UK released The Burning. It's a pretty neat jungle thriller from South America starring Gael Garcia Bernal from The Motorcycle Diaries. This film won't see a Region A Blu-ray.

Nice! Glad I waited on ordering the Leviathan documentary now. Wonder what it means by "brand new version" of Leviathan?

No one picked up The Beast or Immoral Tales? Think films like Emmanuelle for an idea of what to expect from these two French films.

On FB they said it's a re-edited version that runs 90 min and 120 min on each of the 2 film discs. I believe the original doc is 800 min or something.

Great. Original doc is unbearably slow and mostly consists of people saying the same things over and over. I hated it. An HOUR in they don't even get to the anything actually related to making the first film yet.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Giving a bump to ask a question. Has anyone ordered from the Arrow site? I am curious because I am interested in a few releases and cannot figure out if I need to order from the URL proper or from another spot.

They're good to order through. I picked up some releases in the past form their website. Just go wherever you get the best price. It's usually Amazon UK though. Unless Arrow has a good sale, I usually go the Amazon route.

Excellent thanks! I want the Edgar Allan Poe set and they seem to be the only ones that have it in stock. Just wanted to make sure I got the right one and not have to send anything back.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread




Pray for Death starring Sho Kosugi is coming to BD in February.

NEW US ONLY TITLE: Pray for Death (Arrow Video) Blu-ray

Vigilante justice – ninja style!

North American pre-orders links should be live soon!
Release Date: 16th February
Region: A

THEY SHATTERED HIS AMERICAN DREAM.

In Pray for Death, martial arts legend Sho Kosugi (Enter the Ninja, Ninja 3: The Domination) stars as a family man driven to exact vigilante justice – ninja style!

Japanese Restauranteur Akira (Kosugi) has taken his wife and two boys to the United States in search of a better life. But their slice of the American Dream is quickly soured when they fall foul of a group of vicious jewellery thieves. Unfortunately for the bad guys, they didn’t count on Akira being a secret black ninja.

The samurai sword of vengeance falls swift and hard in this classic slice of ‘80s ninja action from director Gordon Hessler (Scream and Scream Again, The Golden Voyage of Sinbad), culminating in an action-packed showdown with a bodycount worthy of Commando.

SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS:
•High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation from a transfer of original elements by MGM of the unrated version
•Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
•Brand new interview with star Sho Kosugi

Via DiabolikDVD on their Facebook page. Glad they're not gouging or anything.

We managed to grab a few Hellraiser Scarlet Boxsets. They will be $125 plus shipping to US customers only. Look for them on the site this week on some random day and time. If anyone wants both a Hellraiser and a Videodrome, I have 2 sets at $200 for BOTH items shipped in the US. Email me at orders at diabolikdvd dot com about this combo only.

I haven't seen Pray for Death since I rented it on VHS 20+ years ago. Don't recall too many details about it, but Sho's Ninja movies are a guilty pleasure. I own all the Cannon stuff on BD.

Just need someone to release Rage of Honor and 9 deaths of the Ninja now.

Glad this is going to be a U.S. release too. I know Arrow mostly releases in the UK.

Everyone knows the classic American horror titles: Night of the Living Dead, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and A Nightmare on Elm Street, to name but a few. But we want to tell you a different story – a story of the unsung heroes of American terror… Whether it’s a film that has languished in obscurity, or a movie that’s at risk of being lost due to lack of source materials, American Horror Project is here to ensure that these unique slices of the American Nightmare are brought back into the public consciousness and preserved for all to enjoy.

Volume I of this series presents three tales of violence and madness from the 1970s. Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood (Christopher Speeth, 1973) sees a family arrive at a creepy, dilapidated fairground in search of their missing daughter, only to find themselves at the mercy of cannibalistic ghouls lurking beneath the park. Meanwhile, The Witch Who Came from the Sea (Matt Cimber, 1976), stars Mollie Perkins (The Diary of Anne Frank) as a young woman whose bizarre and violent fantasies start to bleed into reality – literally. Lastly, every parent’s worst nightmare comes true in The Premonition (Robert Allen Schnitzer, 1976), a tale of psychic terror in which five-year-old Janie is snatched away by a strange woman claiming to be her long-lost mother.
Newly remastered from the best surviving elements and contextualised with brand new supplementary material, with American Horror Project we can re-evaluate an alternative history of American horror and film heritage.

LIMITED EDITION CONTENTS
Brand new 2K restorations of the three features
High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard DVD presentations
English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
Reversible sleeves for each film featuring original and newly-commissioned artwork by the Twins of Evil
American Horror Project Journal Volume I – Limited Edition 60-page booklet featuring new articles on the films from Kim Newman (Nightmare Movies), Kier-La Janisse (House of Psychotic Women) and Brian Albright (Regional Horror Films, 1958-1990)

MALATESTA’S CARNIVAL OF BLOOD – SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS
Brand new interview with director Christopher Speeth
Brand new interview with writer Werner Liepolt
Draft Script (BD/DVD-ROM content)
Production stills gallery

THE WITCH WHO CAME FROM THE SEA – SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS
Audio commentary with director Matt Cimber, actress Millie Perkins and director of photography Dean Cundey
Brand new interview with director Matt Cimber
Brand new interview with Dean Cundey
Brand new interview with actor John Goff

THE PREMONITION – SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS
Audio commentary with director-producer Robert Allen Schnitzer
Brand new interview with composer Henry Mollicone
Interview with actor Richard Lynch
Three Robert Allen Schnitzer short films: ‘Vernal Equinox’, ‘Terminal Point’ and ‘A Rumbling in the Land’
4 “Peace Spots”
Trailers and TV Spots
PLUS MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED!
Has anybody seen any of these? I went ahead and pre-ordered, I've been pretty pleased with Arrow's output so far.
