    So glad that I didn't buy the Island of Death DVD back when they released it over in the UK!

    I've never heard of ISLAND OF DEATH, but that trailer is insane!!! I'll definitely keep an eye out for one of Arrow's sales.

    I like Island of Death, but did not love it. I did own the old Arrow Region 2 release and sold it just because. That being said, I would maybe by the blu the next time they have a sale. It is kind of cool. Perversely violent enough

    Same here. I kept planning to buy it, but just never did. I'll definitely pick up the Blu-ray though as I'm a Mastorakis fan...even though this film is very different than his later output.

    Also very good news that Society is still coming! If it used the same transfer as the German Blu-ray, it'll look amazing.

    Very excited for Society. That'll be the first of the Arrow US releases I pick up.

    I was just complaining to a friend today about there not being a domestic Society blu-ray. This is the best horror news of the year for me.

    So far every release they have announced I already own on blu. Hope they announce something I don't have or own eventually.

    Contamination rocks! I was beginning to think Arrow was abandoning these types of films so very happy to be wrong about that. I already have the German Society BD but will gladly upgrade my Contamination DVD

    I have yet to see that one. I keep forgetting about it. I'll have to give it a watch sometime soon.

    This US move look kinda obsolete to me.
    I mean, their US releases are very much cheaper to import.

    Yea so far it seems pretty dumb as their prices are so high. It's definitely cheaper to import from the UK, especially when their prices start dropping nice and low.

    Their UK Blu of Spider Baby is already region free. All you have to do is hit the top menu button on your remote. Movie and ALL extras play.

    Why are they re-releasing this? Re-release shit that is region locked. Deranged for example.

    (Great) update for Contamination from Arrow on Facebook!:

    "And our last dual territory release for June – Contamination!

    **Release update!** Say hello to the brand new art by Gary Pullin plus a few new extras which are listed below!


    Pre-order your UK copy here: http://bit.ly/1H6mbJd
    Pre-order your US edition here: http://bit.ly/1H6m3JD

    UK Release Date: 29th June 2015
    US Release Date: 30th June 2015
    Region: A+B/1+2
    Format: Dual Format Blu-ray + DVD
    Starring: Ian McCulloch, Louise Marleau, Marino Masé
    Directed by: Luigi Cozzi

    YOU CAN FEEL THEM IN YOUR BLOOD!

    Branded as a “video nasty” in the UK, director Luigi Cozzi’s Contamination takes the premise of Ridley Scott’s classic Alien and peppers it with exploding guts galore and a dangerously infectious soundtrack from celebrated Italian prog-rockers Goblin (Deep Red, Suspiria).

    A cargo ship drifts up the Hudson River. Its crew: dead, their bodies horribly mutilated, turned inside out by an unknown force. Its freight: boxes upon boxes of glowing, pulsating green eggs. It soon becomes clear that these eggs are not of this planet, and someone intends to cultivate them here on Earth. But who? And to what end?

    Starring Italian horror veteran Ian McCulloch (Zombie Flesh Eaters), Contamination is an ultra-violent sci-fi epic that really gets under the skin. In space, no one can hear you scream – but on Earth, the terror rings loud and clear!

    SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS:
    -High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) and Standard Definition DVD presentation
    - Optional English SDH subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
    - Feature Commentary by filmmaker, Fangoria editor and Contamination super-fan Chris Alexander
    - Luigi Cozzi on the Creation of Contamination – an archive documentary hosted by the director and including behind-the-scenes footage
    - 2014 Q&A with Cozzi and star Ian McCulloch
    - Sound of the Cyclops: Goblin's Maurizio Guarini on the music of Contamination – the Goblin keyboardist discusses Contamination's dark, progressive rock score and a lifetime of making music for Italian terror
    - Imitation Is The Sincerest Form of Flattery - A critical analysis of the Italian “Mockbusters” trend of filmmaking which sought to capitalize on the success of Hollywood blockbusters
    - Theatrical Trailer
    - Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Gary Pullin
    - Collector’s booklet featuring new writing on the film by Chris Alexander, illustrated with original archive stills and posters"
