    Nice, I was hoping a sale was coming soon. My wishlist has been growing with them and I need to knock that down a bit.

    Speaking of The Legacy. I order it July 31, then I got a refund from Amazon.uk August 15th. It said it was undeliverable.

    So I had to place another order. Won't arrive until September 1st week sometime. This was the first time something from Amazon.uk didn't get delivered that I've encountered.

    Of course now there's a sale Friday.:confused: ... Like to know what they charge for shipping to USA from their store.

    I'd like to pick up the legacy, what's the chances it feature in the sale? It's a fairly new release, if it does feature can't imagine they will reduce it by much.

    It's nearly sold out, they stated that in their most recent "OUT-OF-PRINT NEWS" email update a couple of weeks ago.

    Hrm... I normally wait for one of their sales and if I don't get the limited edition with the book then I don't get the book (I don't have the time anyways) but on this one the bonus disc itself is limited so that's a risky proposition. On the other hand I don't expect there to be much demand for Night Tide. But unfortunately Powerhouse isn't very forthcoming about stock numbers (at least on my radar).

    I may get too paranoid and pre-order it then watch it go for a song next Black Friday. :p

    to be honest, Indicator is one of the few (only?) labels which don't go down in price much, if any, over time

    makes blind buying more of a risk but also makes you comfortable knowing it won't be half price if you wait long enough

    The short films from the bonus disc are available through Flicker Alley, but the pressed disc is OOP and appears to be replaced with an MOD BD-R.

    Hammer Volume Five: Death & Deceit collects four films from the early sixties which found the studio looking beyond the horror genre for its next box-office success. Visa to Canton (1961, released in the US as Passport to China) is a torn-from-the-headlines spy thriller; The Pirates of Blood River (1962), starring Kerwin Mathews (The 7th Voyage of Sinbad) and Christopher Lee (The Face of Fu Manchu), is a swashbuckling adventure; The Scarlet Blade (1963, released in the US as The Crimson Blade) is an English Civil War-set actioner which follows the fortunes of Cromwell’s Roundheads; and The Brigand of Kandahar (1965) takes Hammer to the North-West Frontier for an action-adventure starring Ronald Lewis (Taste of Fear) and Oliver Reed (The System). All four films are presented for the first time on Blu-ray in the UK, while Visa to Canton, The Scarlet Blade and The Brigand of Kandahar make their world Blu-ray premieres. This limited edition box set is strictly limited to 6,000 numbered units.
