    I will order Blue Eyes. I feel like the world feels better with Edie McClurg (Patty Poole herself) on a steelbook though.

    I absolutely LOVE Switchblade Sisters! I wonder if the Arrow release I any way improves on the Kult release?

    Amazon UK, Deep Discount, and Arrow still have these available.

    Walmart currently has it for just $49.99

    I went ahead and ordered one, since I've been meaning to get this... and it looks indeed like it's going OOP soon.

    Was hoping that I might have been able to get it for $40.00 eventually. Last night I read on Blu-ray.com that it was officially OOP. Thanks for the heads up price alert. $50.00 is better than everywhere else at this point. Ordered it as well.

    Laughable how artsy fartsy Arrow is trying to sound with most of the titles in that announcement.

    Not a mention about their gory and trashy films, that built the label to begin with.

    As great as the price was I'd been reluctant to purchase it as I only really wanted two titles, but a voice in the back of my mind got to check it out and I see it's down to five left in stock. So I did a little more research and realized it had a lot more titles than I was originally thinking (a lot of listings seem to crop off after the first four) including ones I'm more interested in seeing so I pulled the trigger.

    Now there's less than 5 available...

    Agree. I won't be getting it, I have pretty much all I need on disc, as long as they keep releasing the obscure stuff and on disc as well, I'll be happy.

    Out of Stock there now...

    I received mine from Wal-Mart the other week. It came surprisingly well packed in a box with large bubble pillows. I haven't yet had a chance to dig into watching the films, but it looks like a great set. I'll probably watch the documentary first, as someone else suggested. I did the same with the Al Adamson set, and you do really go into the films with a better mindset of what to expect...

    Amazon did briefly restock it for the same price recently, but looks like they're sold out again.

    Here's a question that was probably covered YEARS ago. Does anyone know why Hellraiser III never received a stand alone Blu-ray in America? I finally bought an all region player and picked up the Arrow steelbook trilogy, but never knew why I & II were released separately but not III.

    I think III has a different rights holder than I & II, so maybe there was some kind of weird deal in that regard?

    Maybe it's to do with supply and demand. Hellraiser 1 and 2 are universally liked, 3 not so much. So this then gives options to everyone who likes all 3 and for those who only like the first 2. How many people are gonna like 3 and not like 1 or 2? Well there are probably people out there but not many and not variable enough to do a separate release.

    Although this doesn't translate to all their releases, using Phantasm as an example, I like 1 and 2 and don't care for the rest. I think this relatable to lots of people's opinions of the series, so you would expect them to release a separate 1 and 2, but they didn't. I brought their phantasm 1 release but had to go import route for the 2nd. Thankfully this had been released separate in other regions.

    Demons 1 & 2 UHD arrived today. I had also pre-ordered Crash in UHD but for some reason that didn't ship with this order.

    The Demons boxes are already out of print.
    I expect that they will release a standard edition on both BD and UHD in a couple of months.

    Oh, jump back! Did the DEMONS boxsets come via UPS or the US Post? I got a shipping notice some weeks ago but no trackings numberses.
