    When Straw Dogs was released, they announced it would OOP in December, so I guess they're just following up on that. Actually, such a short life was why I bought that disc, upgrading my old one. In case you didn't know, the Criterion release is a major release, with unbelievable extras.

    I just ordered the Criterion Hitchcocks. $81.22 at DVDPlanet. I had a $5 off coupon so the total delivered price including tax was $86.63.

    Not bad considering Best Buy sells it for $119.95.........

    Well i just got Rebbecca.Thats the last on i needed.This info comes direct from Jon Mulvaney at criterion.So i take it as to be true.Also,I asked about any future Hitchcock releases,He said it is in consideration but nothing in stone yet.I would love to see Dial m for murder amoung many others.

    No offense Jimbo, but I'm skeptical. There's nothing on this at The Home Theater Forum, DVDTalk, etc. The only thing I see online to back this up is a FAQ at some ezboard forum called the Criterion Collection Forum which "is not affiliated in any way with Janus Films, Home Vision Cinema, or The Criterion Collection."

    They do say the titles are going oop - but at the end of '04, not '03.
    FAQ Link

    So Jimbo, did Jon specifically say they'd be oop at the end of '03?

    Hmmmm.... I'm really surprised this hasn't shown up at HTF yet. Oh well, all I need now is Spellbound and Straw Dogs, so I may as well get 'em.

    Good find there Fredo, I may get in on that too, just to have some eBay fodder.

    Thanks Jimbo. Spellbound is still $30, and I didn't want the box set for just the one dvd (eBaying the rest is too much of a hassle for me, and it wasn't eligible for free shipping either).

    So I ordered Spellbound for $30
    Throne of Blood for $20, yee-hah!
    Straw Dogs for $20, woo hoo!

    Also, got a coup here for $5 off when you spend $60... use code 549114

    So, I'll end up eBaying at least one title, Straw Dogs (I already got one), but that's better than having to eBay 4. And now I can finally get Throne of Blood... YAY! Great fucking price on that.

    Thanks Jimbo!
