    Awesome. This one of the ones I saw saw at about 10 years old on an Elvira episode and it always stuck with me. (1984)

    I don't get it. Don't they secure and wrap these rights up tight before they announce the titles let alone have to inform people of this just two weeks before street date?

    Arrow probably had no reason to believe there were any issues with their rights until recently. I'm guessing it's probably another case where the primary rightsholder in Italy double-sold North American rights to two separate companies. It seems like it's becoming a more and more common practice and it apparently is possible that both deals could be 100% legitimate.

    Frustrating. Was going to get the steelbook but I see in the UK it is Arrow store exclusive. Now I just want to say 'fuck it'.

    I'd say ballsy. The backlash from the horror nerds would be bad business.

    Haha yeah I was thinking the same thing myself. There's no way they'd play an April Fool's joke like that. It would be hilarious though to see how angry people get. Especially over on blu-ray.com. :lol:
