    Does Severin do a Black Friday sale? I seem to remember them doing 50% off, but their shipping might have been high? I need Beyond The Darkness, The Devil's Rain, and a few of their InterVision titles, but I'm wondering if I should just wait a month?

    Holy balls! Does anyone know if they charge when you order or when the item ships?

    They use Paypal to process their payments, so I'm pretty sure it's when you order.

    Wow, so nice to see Severin going all out on this! I am getting the Blu-ray box set. Asylum is the best of the bunch in my opinion, but I enjoy them all. The Beast Must Die is a lot of fun & exclusive to the box set.

    So is the Boxset collection exclusively sold only on their site (and probably Diabolik) or is it going to have a wide release at normal retailers? o_O I'm betting that it is... yet I don't really see anywhere where it actually specifies that on their website listing, except that it's a "Limited Edition, and Numbered to 3500 copies"

    ...and you just knew the Boxset + the Book would be friggin' 1 cent cheaper than getting free shipping, so you have to spring $7 if you only want those two without that extra swag in the grand bundle. :rolleyes:

    So glad that the original artwork is included on ASYLUM.

    Severin is stepping up their game. Good for them. Is their use of old codecs still a problem? I remember there was an issue with that when they started transitioning to HD. On the other forum people are always bringing up how "inconsistent" their Blu-rays are but I haven't had any PQ/technical issues with any Severin titles at all. My only issue is their slow pace in upgrading old DVD titles to HD. I'm still thrilled they released Cathy's Curse earlier this year - it's one of my favorite discs of all times now.

    They haven't officially confirmed it, yet, but David Gregory posted on Facebook a few days back about working on a commentary track with Peter Medak and Joel B. Michaels

    Could it be a different Peter Medak film? Everyone assumes it's The Changeling.
