    Aargh. I wish someone in the UK would issue their own blu ray of Raiders. Like 88 Films.

    You got shredded paper in your custom box? I ordered on 08/24/21, but I got ye olde packing peanuts, instead. I think my order might have slipped through the cracks a bit, though, because I actually did order it alongside An Angel for Satan which had already shipped a while back. I must've missed the disclaimer about buying the box set with other items being verboten.

    It was like "crinkled" shredded light brown paper. I guess it was supposed to resemble straw or something.

    :mad::mad::mad: Has Severin even said one single word about this? This qualifies for a replacement disc even more so than The Changeling mishap... which they handled so well. :cool:

    Not a word, and I bet then won't since all the reviewers and fanboys, keeps praising the "stellar" release.
    "Rock!shock!pop!" mentions the "solid" black levels.

    Do these reviewers even bother to watch the discs??

    I just can't trust any of these reviewers anymore. I'll just stick with caps o holic, and torrents, to check out the transfers, before I buy anymore Severin discs.

    And, btw, this is what I wanna do to the braindead fanboys, on blu-ray .com, who keeps ignoring the errors, even when pointed out to them ;)

    You're 100% right. It's pretty bad when you can trust the "screenshots" they post more than the "words" they don't print in their reviews. Mondo-digital have been equally guilty of this. Do they simply just not want to anger their free source of review discs or what? I don't even see the point of reviewing if that's indeed the case.

    No joke, some of the ass kissers on there are something else. I think Severin could put a VHS transfer on a Blu-ray, and some people would still be their devil's advocate.

    Yeah, if the reviewers actually did their damn job, and pointed out the flaws, then Severin would be forced to make replacement discs.

    I don't have Facebook, so I don't know if anyone told them over there.

    When you consider that Shout is offering a replacement disc for Vampire Lovers when they found out the first pressing was missing one second of footage it makes Severin look really bad/cheap.

    Will house on the edge of the park get a wide release on bluray or DVD?

    The rest of the Black Friday titles are coming Feb 22nd but nothing confirmed on this one yet. Maybe they're quietly fixing it and we'll see it in a few months ala Changeling V3?

    Well I will say the old Code Red release looks sharpened to hell. I think that's giving a false impression that Severin's print isn't as good.

    Ordered mine on August 24 and it just arrived today. The "2-day Priority Mail" took almost a week but it's the holidays so... My box was also beat up and like zbinks mine just had packing peanuts but maybe that was how they packed the Witches Bundle. I had to go back and look at the listing to make sure everything was in there because I forgot what all was supposed to come with it. I should have just gone for the boxset without all the extras but I guess I wanted the book or just had FOMO panic with the super limited number of bundles. The plate looks nothing like the example they show on the website. I guess I shouldn't be surprised it's plastic but it looks like something from the dollar store. The book does look interesting but I could have bought that separately. The other stuff is cool enough but will just end up in a box with my Changeling ball and Cathy's Curse mask. Have there been any issues with any of the discs reported yet?

    I haven't received notification yet but I think it's because I ordered the January bundle along with other titles and they are waiting to ship everything at once.

    I'm done with blu-ray .com.
    The retards are giving Severin a pass, even after watching "Last House..." disc.

    So Severin will continue to release shitty discs, not make any replacements, cause those idiots will still buy them, and keep sucking their dicks.

    I need a break from forums. Well, except this one :D

    I got a shipping confirmation on Thursday night. Was wondering if my Black Friday order was delayed because I purchased the Italian post-apocalyptic book? Doesn't matter now, I saw in the email it was included in the shipment along with the movies I bought.

    The black levels could definitely be better but Code Red's disc looks over sharpened and noisy. I think Severin's disc looks better overall.
