Definitely, The Last House On The Left turned out nicely and is the definitive edition.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Surprise announcement from Arrow yesterday: CANDYMAN LIMITED EDITION - October 29, 2018
https://arrowfilms.com/product-detai...lu-ray/FCD1820

Supposedly Region B but deep down in the Twitter replies Bernard Rose joined in (posting pics of him and the DP working on the transfer) and claimed its coming to the U.S. as well, which suggests it might be one of the 10 titles Shout announces at SDCC. Which then further suggests exclusive bonus features that will force people to buy both. Guess we'll see.

Solid package either way:

LIMITED EDITION CONTENTS

• A Story to Tell: Clive Barker’s “The Forbidden” – writer Douglas E. Winter on Clive Barker’s seminal Books of Blood and Candyman’s source story, “The Forbidden”

• Urban Legend: Unwrapping Candyman – a critical analysis of the film with writers Tananarive Due and Steven Barnes

• Theatrical Trailer

• Three rarely-seen Bernard Rose short films, newly restored in HD: Looking at Alice (30 mins, 1978), A Bomb With No Name on It (3 mins, 1976), The Wreckers (5 mins)

Per Arrow's Facebook page:

12 Monkeys - UK/US/CA
Candyman - UK
City of the Living Dead - UK
Deadbeat at Dawn - UK/US/CA
It's Getting Weirder! The Making of House II - UK
Schlock - UK/US/CA
Torso - US/CA

Titles listed only for UK will most likely be Region B locked. The others should be Regions A/B.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Very excited for Deadbeat At Dawn & Candyman!

I still have my Dark Sky Films release of Deadbeat At Dawn on DVD. I'm glad this upcoming release will put the film back in print and accessible to anyone who wants to see it, as the prices on Amazon Marketplace & Ebay for said DVD are absurd.

Also looking forward to that 4K Restoration of Candyman. I kept the 2004 DVD release of the film because the A/V treatment of the film around the world hasn't been great.

Since 12 Monkeys will be released in the US, that means that Arrow will now be releasing Universal Studios Films?? The possibilities!

Didn't see that one coming. Seems to come from the idea that all of the films from a certain director are worthy of a a SE. Now I wonder if Criterion will follow suit and add it to their collection of Del Toro films.

The DePalma De Niro set is interesting. I have shitty DVDs of those. I don’t remember the movies being that good.

The Arrow announcement claims that Crimson Peak is a UK/US release, which means they licensed it for the American market and Criterion can't.

Re: The Official Arrow Blu-ray Thread

Never seen the Django films. Assuming I'm still up for spaghetti Westerns after exploring the ones I already have (and the ones I'll pick up in a near future Kino sale), this set looks promising.

I was on a HUGE DePalma kick earlier this year, revisiting most of his late 70's early 80's work. I've come to really love this material, and his style, as I get older. The only early film of his I've been curious about is Home Movies. I'm not sure about this set though. I'll have to read up on the films first, as I'm sure plot wise there may be enough to hold my attention.

Obvious Price Error Alert:

Amazon's Canadian site has the Last House on the Left 3 disc Limited Edition set for $7.99 CAD right now. It has to be some kind of mistake, but according to some folks at Blu ray dot com who have ordered and received them it has been confirmed to be the 3 disc LE (2 Blu-rays, 1 CD, booklet, poster, slipcase, etc).

Here's the link:

Amazon Amazon

If a much higher price is shown, make sure to click just below that, it should say "New from $x.xx". Get your order in before someone wakes up.

Following the link will just take you to the US site, so just go to amazon.ca and search for it. Also shipping to the US is more than the movie.

True about the shipping charge, but it still works out to be about 1/2 the price verses the US Amazon price, roughly $15 total including shipping from Canada verses over $30 shipped from Amazon US.
