    Same for me, changed from pre-order to backordered with shipping 9/23. I did read on the Halloweenmovies forum that one guy actually received tracking information. So fingers crossed maybe this will go.

    Anyone know if the rob zombie audio commentaries for H1 and H2 are different for the theatrical cuts and unrated cuts? Or is the unrated commentary the same track plus the additional/alternate footage?

    Yep, same here. Got the email and 30% off coupon.

    My order now shows as "ACTIVE,CANCELED". Oh well...

    They do have some Criterions 50% off, might place an order for those and use the coupon.

    yeah it seems like 30% off is needed just to get their prices to be somewhat decent and competitive...

    I've been trying to figure out this for months now, maybe someone on here can answer this.

    The SE DVD for Halloween 5 has a featurette titled "On the Set of Halloween 5"(7:15). On the Blu-ray there is a featurete titled "Halloween 5: On The Set (16:17). As you can see, it is about 9 min. longer. Is this the same featurette with the DVD only including an edited version, or is it something completely different but similarly named? If it is an edited version, is there anything on the DVD version that is not included on the Blu-ray version?

    Hopefully someone can solve this mystery for me!

    Well that sucks. I wonder if any deals can be found on there to use the coupon on then.

    Oh yeah I'm sure. That forum is like visiting a psychiatric hospital. I'm sure people are threatening class action lawsuits by now. :lol: :lol:

    So TCM didn't honor the price fuckup. So what!? :rolleyes: We all knew it was a long shot anyway. It was worth a try at least.

    Just got mine cancelled too. Oh well. Got a 30% off coupon. Might get their blu-ray of The Lady From Shanghai.

    At least every store in Toronto is carrying the Halloween deluxe set for the same price as amazon's $94.99.

    Just wish they had cancelled it earlier. There's a store near my work that I could've grabbed it from. Now I'm home lol.

    Got the email as well. Long sonofabitch, too. I won't be using the stupid coupon. On what, on overpriced Blu-ray? A DVD (remember those?). One thing though, the email says "if you would like to cancel your order" - yeah, no shit, you did that for me. Now I have to wait 3 days for the pending charge to go away. Thanks for nothing, TCM.

    I'm curious about this as well. Now that this TCM price mixup is done and over with, hopefully someone can answer this?

    Gonna check this out for ya since I have a dub of the theater dvd which I thought did not have comm, but does and I kept it.
    Be back with answers in a little while, gonna watch the first few minutes of each, then the escape scenes.

    They are the same for everything that is the same. Opening is exactly the same, pre-escape is the same. But it has specific tracks for each escape, although a line about changing a shot is lost transitioning on the theater cut. Then there is a long pause, but he starts talking about it's a re-shoot and here's Bill Moseley, etc. Then it resumes to the same after the escape (again mentioning re-shoot, almost exactly the same tone and words as the previous mention). It sounds to me like the comm was recorded for the unrated, then he went back did fills for the theater cut one. It flows better on the unrated during the scene changes, and phrases aren't repeated within a few minutes.

    Bottom line: The same but different.:D

    Not surprised and was expecting it, but now it’s official (for me) TCM canceled my order. They did give me a 30% off code to use by the 29th so I’ll have a gander and see if I can put it to use.

    Thanks for the update! Any chance you have the theatrical Halloween 2 to also compare commentaries?

    same here. i doubt the coupon code would make up for the shipping/conversion, so it'll probably just go to waste for me. i expect we've got the same one, actually...
