    I ordered the Amicus set through Severin a few days ago but my card was just charged this morning - does this mean they're about to ship?

    I pre-ordered mine from Diabolik, where it's $23.99. But being in Canada I'd have to pay for shipping either way whether from Amazon or there, so it was cheaper for me at Diabolik vs. Amazon.

    That's not Demoniac, but The Sadist of Notre Dame - Jess Franco's 1979 semi-re-imagining/remake of 1975's Exorcism (aka Demoniac) which features scenes from both the Spanish-language version of Exorcism, the XXX cut Sexorcisms, and newly shot scenes. Super excited!

    My original Spanish one-sheet. Does the hand holding the knife look familiar? Well that's because it's a straight rip-off/stolen from John Carpenter's Halloween poster artwork.

    Zbinks was correct as Sadist of Notre Dame was released as Demoniac by Empire Video. This is the Video slick for that release.

    That's the standard horror cut that Wizard Video released which is the less erotic/cut version of 1975's Exorcism (which is also featured as an alternate cut on the Redemption Blu-ray) and NOT 1979's The Sadist of Notre Dame which has never had a North American release. Demoniac is the cut verison of Exorcism, not Sadist, and has been incorrectly identified as such online on sites like imdb, etc.

    Hopefully this means I'll finally be getting my Black Friday order.

    It might still take a couple months. Severin finally shipped a couple of my Black Friday blu-rays on January 2. They haven't even arrived on the east coast yet. I didn't know the USPS had a shipping method THAT slow.

    My pre-orders for Jack the Ripper + The Amicus Collection + Amicus Book shipped earlier.

    Yay, finally! :)

    So - no shipping notice, no package for the Amicus/J. the Ripper. Everyone else have theirs?

    I'm in the same boat as you, Angelman. I know Severin is a small outfit, but I'm really disappointed in their customer service.

    Yeah, I got it a week ago. One single shipment including the Amicus set, Amicus book, and Jack the Ripper.

    The book arrived with the top right corner mangled though, and no extra "Bonus" Black Friday items at all were included as promised.

    A lot of other people on other forums didn't receive any of the "Bonus" Black Friday perks promised either.

    No response from Severin about the damage or the promised BF perks, so I am quite disappointed in them.

    Weirdly this make me feel better, but like you said, the optics of how they are handling this not great for the company.
