Damn, I bought it too. I thought someone said Arrow's site had the new discs now so I went for it. I wouldn't have pulled the trigger had I known. I'm thinking about returning the whole thing as defective instead.
Yes, it's definitely the defective disc that I received in mine. The running time is 1:31:11 (6 seconds short) and the disc's recording date is 11/13/2012. I also checked the unique Disc ID in DVDProfiler, and it matches the original uncorrected disc.

As long as they'll send me the corrected disc...no problem. I ain't paying more for their mistake though! I guess these things happen, but it's lame that it's still out there well over a year after the issue was noted, and coming direct from the studio.

I got a reply back earlier today, and they said they would send out a free replacement disc.

They said that it was unusual, since all copies were supposed to have been repackaged with the updated replacement discs... so maybe mine was just from a fluke batch.

Mine's running time is also 1:31:11. I watched the end of the opening credits and there is the "jump" cut between instead of a smooth cut. Kinda like the old battered prints with American titles spliced in any old way.

I doubled checked online and the boat-gate disc's inner ring says A0102058342-B912 100 and mine says that.

The corrected disc has an inner ring: A0102067063-B911 100

They'd been selling the faulty disc themselves for awhile now it would seem and it's pretty douchey of them. I suppose it makes it easier to say, "Yep they have the bad disc alright cause we sold it to them."

I might ask for a replacement on that principle alone. Plus my case was damaged on Zombi 2 so I'm a little unhappy about that too (though I doubt the replacement comes in a case).

^^^ well that sucks. It sounds like mine was hardly just a fluke then.

My cases arrived okay... but they were just packaged in a thin bubble wrap mailer, so I can see how damage could have occurred.

Damnit. I really hoped that FORBIDDEN ZONE would be part of this sale as I already got just about everything else I need from their last sale.

Anyone know if Arrow's BD of THE DEADLY SPAWN is any better than the horrible stateside release?

Woah damn. I haven't bought an arrow release since the last sale. Amazon's prices for these are way too high. Def biting on this sale.

I grabbed THE STUFF, WHITE OF THE EYE, PIT STOP, SISTERS, THE FUNHOUSE, and TENEBRAE. Hard to argue with those prices!

I think I have most of the Arrow stuff I need but if the US dollar wasn't so weak I'd grab some others. 10 British pounds sounds cheap on paper but that comes out to $17 USD. Delta Force ended up costing me $33 and some change with shipping, which is $13+ more than what I should be paying for this particular title.

Shipping's free to the U.S. over 50 -- I think I spent around $92 total for my order, which comes to a little over $15 a disc.

Arrow didn't release a BD, it's DVD only from them.

Shit. I was so focused on the one title that isn't part of the sale that I totally overlooked these! I also picked up THE LONG GOODBYE, THE CAR, and pre-ordered PIT STOP.

I'm weak. So, so weak.
