    But the swag looks cool! lol. I really like that poster with the insides of a Graboid and I'm sure the outer case looks amazing. But yeah, at that price I think I'll have to wait for a standard edition.

    I wanted to add that I watched Pitch Black over two nights last week and have to admit it was better than I remembered. It still feels real cheap at times and some things aren't shot the best, like the start which uses a lot of shaky cam that was making me dizzy. The last hour changes in tone and things get far more serious. And I'd totally forgotten about that ending so it surprised me once again. Also, the clarity was far better than I'd ever seen for this film. It was much, much easier to tell what was going on. If I see it show up in an Arrow sale I may end up buying it lol :oops:

    You have to wonder why Arrow is releasing yet another blu-ray for American Werewolf in London. Germany has already put out a 4K edition. It would kind of suck to put this steelbook out and then next year come out with a 4K release.

    Damn, Demon's 1 & 2 in 4k! I didn't expect that but was literally thinking about how cool it would be to have these in 4k the other day.

    Also, I kind of hate how Arrow's site never keeps stuff in my basket. I spend time working out titles I want or might be interested in and go to my cart a day later and it's empty again. Makes sale time more tedious, that's for sure.

    I just always do that stuff old school. Cut & Paste any product URL links and just stick them in a temp text file. Basic as can be, but easy to do and it's saved me quite a few headaches in sales like that.

    Zavvi are also doing a sale, they have a few titles that are cheaper than on Arrows site.

    I brought 'beyond the Door' and 'white Fire' they were £8.50 each at zavvi and they are £10.00 at arrow.

    I suck at productivity like that when I'm on my phone which is where I often find myself looking at these sales lol. I'll have to keep that in mind as it's a good idea for sure.

    I vaguely knew Japan had an some old invisible man movies but there was little hope in their release as they were so obscure so I'm psyched to hear Arrow is releasing this:
    https://www.scifijapan.com/articles...ouble-feature-from-arrow-video-in-march-2021/

    Curious that the US region code is region 0 while the UK release is region B. Since the UK rating is TBC the UK specs may also be less finalized.

    Heard some complaining on social media, but I'm definitely excited for the Invisible Man two-fer. Usually people are always crying about wanting new movies on disc. These two of have never been released in English and are very underseen, if that's not what everyone's always bitching we aren't getting enough of then I don't know what is!

    This is awesome news. The Japanese made several Invisible Man films from the 40's-50's. I don't believe these were ever available as English friendly before. I love when companies are able to put out obscure content.

    These are the Japanese laserdisc covers for The Invisible Man Appears and The Invisible Man Vs the Human Fly.

    I've seen The Invisible Man vs Human Fly (with fanmade subtitles) and it's pretty fun. The Human Fly is kind of like Ant-Man where he's just a dude who can shrink super small (and weighs so little he can just kind of float around) and not a man/fly creature, but it's still pretty entertaining. I'll definitely get the Blu-ray when it comes out.

    It was disappointing to see how little titles they announced for March though.

    Switchblade Sisters is the only need to have. I know nothing about Blue Eyes and Clapboard Jungle sounds to me like a one time viewing thing. All the others are just boring old reissues.
