I ordered both and received one of each. Thank you for the suggestion.
Chances are you received the wrong one for each but because you bought both it just cancels out lol. Literally everybody on blu-ray.com got the wrong disc. It's a real shit show. Thankfully Arrow are making good quickly, but it must be costing them a good amount for this mistake.
DVD Beaver reviews Switchblade Sisters: Switchblade Sisters Blu-ray - Joanne Nail (dvdbeaver.com)
Man, Arrow seems to really love those purple and green covers. I feel like they've done a lot like that and they all look ugly and uninteresting to me. They do realize a cover, in theory, should attract a buyer right? Maybe I'm alone in thinking that though.
DVD Beaver reviews Death Has Blue Eyes: Death Has Blue Eyes Blu-ray - Maria Aliferi (dvdbeaver.com)
They’re almost enough to get me to chuck the slip cover, or to wait and buy a copy without one, but I want the booklet that always comes with first editions.
Arrow just shipped my UHD of Battle Royale. I preordered it right when they announced it (honestly, thinking it might sell out before release date but it's still on their site) and can't wait to finally watch it. It looks like a beast of a box set. My collection has expanded so much during covid (what else is there to do? lol) that I'm running out of room on my shelves.
Django 4K UHD review: http://www.rockshockpop.com/forums/content.php?8854-Django-(Arrow-Video)-UHD-Review
... and an announcement about the Donnie Darko 4K UHD player issues:
Seems that Arrow has been having some issues lately.
Amazon UK leaks for upcoming Arrow titles:
Demons UHD Standard (Dual format)
Demons 2 UHD Standard (Dual format)
True Romance BD & UHD (Both Theatrical + Director's Cuts)
Vengeance Trails: Four Classic Westerns BD (Massacre Time, My Name is Pecos, Bandidos, And God Said to Cain)
The Cat O' Nine Tails UHD (Limited Edition + Arte Originale)
Daimajin Trilogy BD (Daimajin, Return of Daimajin, Wrath of Daimajin with 100 page book)
True Romance details:
I'm definitely up for a Daimajin set! I've wanted to see those ever since I got the Gamera set last year.
And a good version of Massacre Time would be nice - I can get rid of the public domain dvd that I have.
Even with two re-issues and one upgrade, this is a decent slate. But... nothing really catches my fancy. The Cat o'Nine Tails in UHD? I might get that... It's actually my favorite of Argento's animal trilogy, but for some reason, even this one doesn't raise my excitement levels like, say, the Blue Underground's Fulci UHDs.
Great month for Arrow. The Daimajin trilogy and UK True Romance were instant Diabolik pre-orders.
Django 4K UHD review with screenshot comparisons: http://www.dvdbeaver.com/film/dvdcompare/django.htm
I remember the disappointment, when I got the old Blue-Underground blu-ray of Django, and it was one of the worst cases of scanner noise, I have ever seen.
The boosted contrast didn't help either.
So glad the movie finally got the treatment it deserves.
I tried looking for Django on the Arrow store a few weeks back and couldn't find it. Just tried now and same deal. What gives?
It's a US exclusive from Arrow, so it wouldn't be listed in their UK website store.
Cult Films have Django in the UK, so a release from Arrow anytime soon there is unlikely.
I thought Arrow was under Cult Films? I seem to remember their old message boards being called at least something similar.
So where do they list their American only titles then?
Not that I know of. This is Cult Films in the UK. They list Shameless Films as their "Sister Website", so they seem to be closer to them.

I don't think Arrow really even list their American releases on their website. You usually have to just find them at their North American distro websites like MVD, Diabolik, Grindhouse Video or when they later show up on US retail websites.
Here's the MVD product listing: https://mvdb2b.com/s/DjangoUHDTexasAdiosBlurayLimitedEdition/AV344 although I'm not sure why they call it an Exclusive, since they're really just Arrow's distributor in North America.
Glad I held of with the Demons limited editions, much prefer to have both the Blu Ray and UHD in each of the the packs, each comes with a booklet so it feels like a much better deal to me.
Arrow were under cult films for there early releases, not sure when it changed but it's been awhile. I have heard recently that Zavvi has a stake in Arrow now which is causing concern from some collectors. We will see how it goes but the horror output does feel like it's a bit lacking lately.
