With all the work Don puts into these releases it more than justifies the price. I'm willing to pay a little more for a great product rather than a little less for an average product. Every once and awhile you have to pay a little more for a juicy steak that's ok by me if it means a great release. If you don't like it than stick with the old AB versions or Arrow's version and be happy with your average hamburger nothing wrong with that. I can't wait for these awesome releases, good job once again Synapse

Oh, I agree 100%. I'm just not a big fan of these particular titles.

Believe me, I look forward to their future release announcements!

I'm willing to bet it also has to do with the fact that so many people (on Bluray.com especially) have been complaining about the price and stating how they are ordering the cheaper Arrow versions instead. I think he was just pointing out that those versions are cheaper, but his version will be far more superior and worth the extra money if you are a fan.

I still don't like that they've only made it available through their site as that price isn't going to fluctuate like it would if it were released elsewhere. That's the only thing that has annoyed me about this release. The steep price plus international shipping fees is making this a hard one for me to justify getting.

I appreciate Don's work, and I'm far from being a fan of Arrow's releases (if you read my post history, you will see I'm quite critical of them), but in this case I have to point out we are certainly not talking about drastic differences between releases, just minor tweaks to the transfers already available (the UK releases look pretty decent, especially in motion; I own them, and these are among the best transfers Arrow has released).

And considering you can currently purchase a pack with both titles, on a steel-book, full of special features that won't be included in the US release, for 12.76 (less, if you are ordering outside of the EU, because they remove VAT), which makes it less than half of the price Synapse is charging for one of the titles, and that's before we add the shipping charges, I have to ask if these small improvements are worth the price-tag that comes attach to them?

It's not worth paying 5x the amount. I have the the Arrow double feature steelbook and I'm happy with it.

This looks amazing and all, but I still can't justify the price. If they had some sort of deal where if you buy both you would get some sort of discount, would be great, but between my PS4 and the couple games that I wan't I'm pretty much broke until next year.

Same here! Don said he'd start shipping them out in the order that the orders were placed originally. I placed my order straight away...so hopefully they should show up any day now.

Those screenshots look glorious. I'm so happy Don's got Suspiria now. The man knows his primary colors!

I will buy all four releases (Synapse + Arrow) since each one of them have different features/extras.

November 19th is going to be a big day for me. If Demons ships around the 19th (or before, hopefully) I'm going to be up to my neck in goodness:

Night of the Comet
Tank Girl
Maniac Cop 2 & 3
Eve of Destruction
Assault On Precinct 13
Demons & Demons 2 (maybe)

and I probably will not have yet watched Body Bags, The Horror Show or Man of Steel from the previous Super Tuesday.

There really is no better hobby than this
