I got mine today too, along with Tomboy.
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.
FYI - half.com is selling the Blu-Ray for $11.71 plus $2.99 shipping through import_cds. Cheapest I've been able to find thus far - yoink!
debating a blind buy on this
I pre-ordered it from Deep Discount for $13.63 back on a sale. It shipped on 7/27, so it should be here any damned day now. :freak: DHL sucketh.
What sale got it down that low? The 15%? It wasn't on the site for that sale they had before (20 or 25%). I think you make shit up just so you can post yer little smug devils
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.
So... :evil: :evil: :evil: !!!
Where's my fucking $5 off coupons! I order so much shit from that place, I'll fix their asses, why you little *%*%$#!@!
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's DVD Drive-In's turn:
Blu-ray.com review: http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Tower-of-Evil-Blu-ray/73737/#Review
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.
Just watched tower of evil and what a fabulous time I've had.
The movie just oozed atmosphere, it's so atmospheric, the sets and design are great, really adds to the creepy feel of the movie and for a film from the 70s there is a fair bit of blood and nudity.
Some of the dialogue is a bit hit and miss and the ending I felt just needed an additional beat, but all in all this was a great viewing experience.
I believe it was released in the US by scorpion and has since been deleted. I viewed the UK release from Odeon and while featuring a strong uncut HD print also had a lot of extra's which includes a commentary, Interviews and trailers some of which are exclusive to this release.
I've also checked and while it's been advertised as region B, the release is in fact region free. So anyone interested here who lives in the states can be safe in the knowledge this release will play for them.
I cannot recommend this enough and with such a great release I cannot recommend the UK release more highly.
Yeah, I agree. I watched this once on late night horror show on TV in 1982...but I never saw the whole thing until Elite's DVD (which I still have along with the newer Scorpion release). Terrific flick. That ending was quick but myself and my friends were actually creeped out by the ghoul. There was something very "Hell Night" about the whole thing. I liked the flashback angle, too. Some of the fashions were pretty cool, too. Still looking for a cool leather belt like one guy had in the flick.
That’s great news to hear, if true about being region free. And at only £9 on Amazon.co.uk, it’s a no brainer for those that are interested in the title. I’m not quite there yet, but I’ll keep it in mind if I place an order for something else in the future.
