Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Arrow Blu-Rays are currently on sale at Amazon UK

I managed to snag the following:

The Delta Force

Lifeforce

Thief

Videodrome

Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins


Came out to roughly $62 and change after shipping.


I got my 1st Region Free BD player this past summer and these will be my 1st Arrow Region B BDs.

Does anyone here own these releases? Care to comment how they are? Picture/Extras? I researched Region A counterparts and none even came close to price and extras that these offered.

New March releases.


I'm looking forward to the House series and Pieces, since I missed the US release that came with a puzzle.

Assuming the House US set has House and House II, and is done well, I'll pick that one up for sure. Love those movies. Have that ancient Anchor Bay limited edition DVD set and would love to replace it with something better.

In the original House, William Katt (Carrie) stars as Roger Cobb, a horror novelist struggling to pen his next bestseller.

Unfortunately, the house’s monstrous supernatural residents have other ideas…
House II: The Second Story sees young Jesse (Arye Gross) moving into an old family mansion where his parents were mysteriously murdered years before. Plans for turning the place into a party pad are soon thwarted by the appearance of Jesse’s mummified great-great-grandfather, his mystical crystal skull and the zombie cowboy who’ll stop at nothing to lay his hands on it!
In House 3 (released domestically as The Horror Show) Lance Henriksen (Aliens) stars as a detective who sends a sadistic serial killer to the electric chair, only to find himself stalked by the maniac from beyond the grave.
Meanwhile, House IV: The Repossession has William Katt returning to the fold for one last terrifying tale that mixes seedy mobsters, Native American spirits and a singing pizza in perhaps the barmiest House entry of all!

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Are the last two good enough that it's worth getting the whole set?

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

So my 5 Arrow BD's just arrived a few days ago from Amazon UK

I went through some of the content:

The Delta Force: Very impressed with this release. Some nifty extras compared to the barebones MGM/FOX release. Liked the interview with Cannon writer James Bruner and they also interview the director of the Cannon documentary Electric Boogoloo.

Videodrome: Lots of content. The Arrow version is much cheaper than the current Criterion version and is loaded with content. Only big thing missing is the actor and director commentaries that Criterion has. But, considering the price, I'll live.

Remo Williams: Loaded with content including a 1 hour documentary about 80's action movies. Plus there's a commentary track with the producers not on the Twilight Time version. And it's less than half the price of that version.

Lifeforce: 2 discs. Appears to have the exact same content as the Shout release that went out of print, including 2 versions of the film.

Thief: Much cheaper than the Criterion version and also has much more extras. Big extra is a new 15 minute interview with Caan that Criterion doesn't have.


Grand total spent a little over $60 and change total for all these and I'm quite pleased. The investment to get a region free player is going to pay off in the long run.


I did order 2 more Arrow releases from Amazon UK:

The Hills have eyes. Cheaper than the U.S. counterpart

Foxy Brown. U.S. counterpart is a shitty Olive Films version with no extras.

Definitely going to import that House 1-4 UK set.

Going to keep my eye on the Dead or Alive Trilogy. Will wait for reviews on that one.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Not a single copy of "Creepshow 2: Limited Edition" to be had on the internet. I had to drive clear across town to grab a copy at Zia Record Exchange. Each location didn't even bother putting them out because they were all put on hold for call-ins. That's amazing—I guess package media is alive and well.

House III was Released under the title The Horror Show. It starred the late great Brion James and Lance Henrickson. Saw it on HBO way back in the day; despite the strong cast, I remember it being sort of lame.

Don't think I ever saw House IV, or whatever they ended up called it.

ETA: Looks like info about House III was explained in the description.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

HOUSE IV was just HOUSE IV. I remember getting a screening cassette for it back in my newspaper days and, having been a fan of the first film and (oddly, I suppose) an even bigger fan of the second -- having seen both in theatres -- I was rather dismayed to discover that I somehow missed PART III entirely. I didn't even know it existed Took a bit of sleuthing in those pre-Internet days, but I eventually discovered that THE HORROR SHOW -- which likewise played briefly in my city although the TV spots hardly compelled me to see it -- had been retitled overseas. PART IV isn't all that hot, but at least it attempts to retain some of the humour from the first two.

The Hellraiser Scarlet box set got an 8 out of 10 in this review. Extras got a 10 out of 10 (This is the review of the UK version, which is the same as the US version)

https://www.amazon.com/Hellraiser-Sc...er+scarlet+box

Currently at $78.99 at Amazon. Kind of regret not getting it when it was $68 a few months ago, but that's a lot of cash for just 3 movies.

I really want that set but the framing issues in III are enough for me to not drop the $70+

Arrow released a statement about it but really just talked themselves around being honest about their source elements.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

I finally got the notice that Amazon had released my pre-order of the "Creepshow 2 (Limited Edition)" from Limbo and was getting ready to ship it to me. It also appears my "Scarlet Box" is going out today (and, yeah, I got the $67 deal, which was a lucky roll of the dice).

Last week I got Amazon UK edition of the Herschell Gordon Lewis "Cereal Box" for $105 after GBP exchange and it was excellent condition. I was so delighted with the set that I was kind of looking forward to more from Arrow, although the two items above looked like they'd never ship.
