View Full Version : Recommend UK PAL DVDs ?

01-30-2001, 06:22 PM
I recently ordered Return of the Living Dead 3 from <A HREF="http://www.blackstar.co.uk">Black Star</A> out of the United Kingdom. This probably goes without saying, but they specialize in DVD and VHS released in the UK.

My experience with Black Star has been terrific. Their customer service is top notch. They informed me of the mistake regarding Return of the Living Dead 3 (it was supposed to be the original) as soon as they found out, plus they responded to all of my email in a matter of hours. My first order with them arrived in my mail box just a few days after the official release date. To top it all off, they have affordable prices and FREE shipping worldwide.

Needless to say I'm impressed with them. So now that I've found a reliable and inexpensive importer of UK PAL DVDs, I'm wondering which ones I should order. I would of course review any I order on the site. These should be movies that aren't available on domestic DVD.

Here's just a few I came up with:

The Vampires' Night Orgy
Phantasm 2
Phantasm 3
The Gate

Is there anything else? Does anyone have any comments on the titles I listed (like if any of them are cut)?

Get this (http://www.blackstar.co.uk/video/item/7000000058075). It is a true classic http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/wink.gif

Whoever said violence never solves problems
obviously never used enough of it.

The Convent dvd is pretty decent...

Also, the American Psycho R2 release has some deleted scenes not found on the R1 release (the dvd version is the same as the "unrated version" released on the US)

Black Star service is great. I just returned 2 dvd's, and they shipped the replacements before receiving my returns...

There's also Freaks which I'm going to order just as soon as my codefree player gets back from the shop (if it does... http://www.horrordvds.com/forum/frown.gif )

Don't forget Scanners - a very nice full frame open matte transfer. Uncut too.

Oh no, mother! Blood!
