    It's currently listed on amazon UK for 99.99 pounds and it's not even listed on the arrow website anymore. I know their stock was destroyed during the riots but has the blu-ray gone completely OOP? Fuck, I never ended up grabbing it.

    Anyone have any more info?

    I just sent them an email asking about it, so hopefully they'll respond with some good news.

    (I hope it's just a case of there being a delay in-between pressings)

    You should check Arrow´s blog for this stuff because they respond to this stuff almost immediately.

    The original Region All pressing of Funhouse was discontinued and will be replaced by a new Region B pressing. If you can´t find stock in online stores it means they already are waiting for the new version. According to them, the old pressing is still availablle from their site.

    ^ Yeah, I heard that too. They are re-releasing it and it will be region locked.

    Already received a reply. Yup, in-between pressings. I also heard that they had fixed the 1080i/50 problem with the first discs and now the special features will be presented in full 1080p?

    Anybody know if they've fixed this problem with City of the Living Dead?

    wait, so if it's in between pressings, does that mean the new pressing will be region B? if so...then fuck!

    Yeah I'm region-free so it's not so bad. But they do have some older pressings in stock. You just gotta contact their customer service.

    What was the 1080i/50 problem? I have the old disc and have to keep it as I'm not region free for blu (yet). Was the movie in 1080i, or the features? I know the features won't play on region A player, but work fine on my computer. I thought the film looked awesome and didn't see any issues with it.

    Thanks for the heads up on the Region B re-release. I made sure to put an order in while there were still all region releases in stock. Not region free on Blu.

    I emailed their customer service and they verified they do have some copies left of the region free- so I sent payment today via pay pal to snag a copy since the reviews were so good on the video and audio presentation. Total cost was a bit high but I guess not too bad for an import that will go OOP. Wonder why we havent gotten an R1 release on this yet?
    Amount: €22.99 EUR
    Currency conversion: $30.73 USD = €22.99 EUR (includes shipping to U.S.)

    Because Universal owns it. Even if we do get it, it'll be barebones.

    So when will the new Region B release be available? And I assume it will be the same transfer of the movie itself?

    Just a heads up for anyone who has any of Arrow's blu-ray releases and has a player that wont play the extras, I just got a Samsung HT-D4500 home theater for Christmas and it plays every special feature on every Arrow blu-ray release that I have just fine including the Dawn of the Dead, City of the Living Dead and Funhouse blu-rays, whereas my old Sony player would not. From what I can gather by searching the web, it seems that most, if not all of Samsung's blu-ray players have no problem playing the extras on Arrow's blu-ray discs.

    That's actually incorrect; you seem to be confusing the British pound for the Euro. Arrow's asking price for the leftover region free copies is 22.69 gbp, which come out to about $35 and, with Paypal's slight rip off of a currency conversion system, closer to $37. I know because I just ordered one as well.

    Yes I received mine as well and was very happy with the it. Movie plays great and looks great (considering the source material) and all the special features were playable on my blu-ray player. Very happy with my purchase.
    You are correct that is how much it is supposed to cost. My apologies if I caused any confusion for anyone.

    Was never a big fan of the movie itself, but it's great to see a release with features fans can enjoy. I love the fact it has the original cover artwork too! Is there any difference between the US and British releases regarding the censorship of this film? I hope you fans will get the full version Hooper intended.
