    Mine is in the post. Cant wait for this. Got my old non anamorphic Elite DVD up on Ebay. Up to £6.50 with four days to go. Got the Blu off Amazon for £12.05 shipped so isnt going to be that much of a costly upgrade for a movie I love.

    I honestly don't remember what it was from. Maybe it was when they sent me three $5 off coupons right in a row to use.

    I got mine from DeepDiscount as well. It was $13.77. Can't remember what the promotion was though.

    It arrived yesterday, along with Tomboy.

    Nice work you guys. Well, for those of us that fell asleep at the wheel - get_importcds on half.com is a close second.

    I received mine earlier today also.

    This and the Tomboy Blu-rays have an odd looking play surface on them...I've never quite seen similar on any Blu-ray release. It looks almost rippled when you shine it under a light. It plays perfectly fine...just very curious looking.

    It appears that this title has gone out of print.

    Better nab it soon before it's too late. TOWER OF EVIL is quintessential 70's horror. I've watched the film about 3 times since I discovered it on DVD and I enjoy it more each time.

    Yes, a large chunk of the Scorpion catalog went OOP quite a while ago. I'm glad I mostly kept up with their releases while they were retail (I think The Beach Girls was the only one I missed).

    Tower of Evil is a good one - stagy but creepy sets, a game cast (including a studly young Robin Askwith and the fabulous Jill Haworth), and a hideous freak. For those missing out on the Scorpion release, the region B release by Odeon is reportedly slightly superior.
