    Ain't it better to make a trip to the Region-Free world and get a DVD Player that plays everything in order to then, as a UNITEDSTATESOFAMERICAN GRINGO, get every DVD that's made in the world???

    Or try to get a region-free DVD player in the black market!

    Join us! Join the people that can play everything and make shit over your government and the rules!

    Condoleezza and, that white-haired gringo, and Bush!
    Why don't you make shit over their damned DVD rules?

    C'mon, guys!

    Make your life easier!

    Pass your CAR over them!

    I've already done that and shat all over my government and its useless rules! Now all I need is that boxset and I'll be in good shape. :lol:

    Try MOST of them. Virtually every movie made since 1953 not shot in cinemascope was shot in 4:3 and then matted to a wider ratio. THE BEAST MUST DIE is no different. It isn't supposed to be seen in 4:3 (at least not theatrically).

    But you NOW can buy directly from UK region 2 DVDs with no problem or not ?
    And people can send you gifts from UK region 2 DVDs stores, NOOOOOOOOO ?

    I have a bunch of R2 and R3 discs, even an R4 boxset, so yes! I've shat upon my government for a few years now, so I built up a small collection of other region discs. And yes, people can send me whatever they like! :lol:

    Despite knowing little about Amicus Horror, I picked these dvds up on a whim. I watched Asylum last night and loved every single cheesy minute. It had me from the opening second and never looked back. Is Asylum indicative of other films from Amicus? If so, I am going to need to pick up lots more of their movies. That was a terribly fun time.

    Dark Sky is really becoming a contender in the horror dvd market this year.

    If you are interested in Amicus Films you should have a look at this really nice book. 164 full-coloured pages about all the Amicus films with tons of photos. I love it.

    Amicus - The studio that dripped blood (ISBN: 0953326136)

    Thanks for the tip foller. I really enjoyed these releases, especially Asylum and And Now the Screaming Starts! I am anxious to see more Amicus, but don't want to take the "close your eyes and gravitate" to a dvd approach because that usually ends so very poorly. This might just be a perfect start.

    If you don't already have it, "The House That Dripped Blood" is a fantastic amicus anthology and can be had on the cheap.

    Yeah, exactly what he said! :evil: The House That Dripped Blood is another great Amicus anthology, highly recommended.

    ...and Dark Sky did an excellent job on the three recent Amicus DVD's. I just wish they'd get their hands on some of the others!

    I'll add that the fourth story, "The Cloak", features the third Doctor (Jon Pertwee) in a great starring role with Ingrid Pitt. It's really an excellent anthology. If you liked the others I can't see you not liking The House That Dripped Blood! :D

    My personal favorite is FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE. The stories about the mirror and the door are simply amazing.

    I agree Maybrick, those two tales from beyond the grave are superb - I also love the Donald Pleasance tale - travesty this hasn't hit dvd as well as the superb Tales from the crypt!

    I wish they would bring a better version of Vault of Horror than the shite Vipco release.

    I also hope they release another one of my fave amicus movies soon - The Skull, starring Peter Cushing & Chris Lee.
