    I ordered mine directly from Arrow and USPS delivered them. My order did come with tracking.

    I'm pretty sure that would be the blu-ray version. The 4k one is the one that's sold out now.

    They will definitely release a standard version. I suspect it will be released in the quieter months so probably xmas/Jan.

    May releases:

    Nothing too surprising or unexpected, except for Over the Edge! I've been waiting on that to come to Blu-ray forever, and it looks to be packed with bonus features. It's a UK only release however, so Warner must either have plans for releasing it themselves in the US or licensing it out to somebody here.

    Arrow does have a "Store Exclusive" for it that comes with a Slipcover: https://arrowfilms.com/product-detail/over-the-edge-arrow-store-exclusive-blu-ray/FCD2147

    I pre-ordered that sucker straight away. ;)

    Over the Edge is a given for me. The soundtrack album basically cemented my musical tastes for life at an early age. I hope shipping overseas drops by then though. It’s going to hurt.

    With shipping from Arrow it came out to £24.20 GBP ($35.36) on my pre-order for it... although I did use 180 points I had, so that took off £1.80 from the total price.

    Just watched Over The Edge for the first time and at a theater to boot just a couple of years ago. Can't believe I missed it as a kid. Really awesome film. Highly recommended. Thanks for posting, Katatonia. At first I did not realize what film this was until I re-read your post emphasizing it.

    I pre-ordered Over the Edge from Diabolik so fast.

    Kinda surprising Diabolik didn't get a US Slipcover for it like Edge of the Axe. Arrow direct seems to be the only place this time of getting the "Store Exclusive" Slipcover.

    It doesn't appear to be limited like the 'edge of the Axe' release either.

    It's probably limited to whatever they initially press, since Arrow represses usually lack the booklet.

    Diabolik probably doesn't have an exclusive slipcover because it's not a US release. They can sell it as an import, but they can't really do anything special for US customers.

    Never seen "Over the Edge", but after watching the trailer, this will definitely become a part of my collection.

    It's one of the finest and most accurate "teen" films from the 70's IMO. It perfectly captures an era of suburban USA emerging during that time, and is loosely based on actual events. It was very prescient of some high school events later like Columbine, etc. And while the plot is entirely different, it and The Warriors have always been my two main cinematic favorites from 1979. Also like Maybrick said before, it has a classic soundtrack of songs from the period.

    I can even remember reading the paperback novelization at the library when I was a teen. Oddly, one of the original theatrical posters for the film made it seem more like a horror film (which it is most definitely not) :

    It's just a kickass movie that still holds its effect very well all these years later... and one of the few films I actually straight out purchased the HD digital streaming version of years ago.

    Yeah never heard of it, but after the chatter here I'll definitely do a blind buy on it.

    It's really good. It's one of the first movies I ever saw on Showtime Pay TV. I grew up in a very similar environment. The kids in my 'hood were restless and grew up way to fast. It was the same era - we all dressed just like the kids in the movie...and most got in trouble very much the same. No gunfire, but we lost a surprising number to drunk driving accidents.
    I had hoped Pamela Ludwig would be huge after this movie. She did a terrific follow up film for the same director - a TV movie called "The 11th Victim"/aka "The Lakeside Killer" and was equally moody-licious.
