Because from Twilight Time to Synapse's Demons to Shout!'s Nightbreed LE, this shows a disturbing trend of releases with unusually high price tags, that are also promoted as limited, meaning fans have no choice but to pay up now if they want a title, or miss out altogether. It also encourages scalpers to buy up stock just to re-sell at inflated prices on the secondary market. No one complains about the high price tag on Criterion titles, because we know the quality is there, and they don't pull that "Only 3,000 made! Buy now or miss out!" bullshit. But we're being forced to pony up for Nightbreed now, at double a Criterion price, w/o knowing what kind of quality to expect. Otherwise, I don't mind the high prices on Shout!'s Scream Factory SEs, because they tend to be good quality and packed with extras. And they're not limited. I detest Twilight Time, who charge the same (or more) as Scream, but limited and w/o extras. I've heard the quality on Demons is great, and I appreciate it, but with so much stuff coming out, and money being tight, I'd appreciate being able to wait a year or two to pick it up, or get it on sale somewhere, but "NO, IT'S LIMITED! ONLY 100 LEFT! ORDER NOW!!1"

Good news! Synapse Films are releasing Demons and Demons 2 on standard Blu-Ray and DVD in November. Its the same transfer and audio, but not all of the extras found in their gorgeous steelbooks, so the choice is yours
So glad I held out!

Looks like standard blurays are being released in November. The extras have been removed though, it's just the movie and the trailer on the disc.

Glad I waited. I feel like they should have just released a double pack if they're just going to scrap the extras. Still, good news.

I think my wife grabbed the Steelbook for my birthday. I kind of feel better knowing the standard release is bare bones.

Same here. I don't regret buying the SteelBooks at all. They're beautiful, and like you said we get all the extras...and the Italian audio tracks.

Surely they'll keep all the audio tracks? I assumed that no features meant doco's and clips would be gone, not audio tracks.

EDIT: Nevermind, just read the FB link. Might as well just keep my Arrow edition then.

Yes, I would be PISSED right now if these were the same discs. If I hadn't already bought them, I'd probably feel differently. But the more they Echo Bridge-ify these new versions, the better.

Vindictive, maybe, but I sure as hell didn't pay an extra $30 for the gimmicky tin packaging.

So, on the Steelbook there was 3 audio options right? Italian, English then a Euro track (English but slightly different). I was hoping for the Euro track! It's the one I grew up with, and sadly isn't on the Arrow release.

Does anyone know?

Correct, 3 audio options.

The "Italian" audio track, the "International English" audio track, and then the "U.S. Mono" audio track.

I'm jazzed for those who held out, they'll get the best deal in my opinion. The covers are not my taste, the mono soundtrack which I usually love just doesn't sound very good here and no one I watch demons with will read subtitles. The extras are not at all interesting in my opinion and I LOVE these films. If you like Demons you know all the info received on the discs extras

English track (horrible dubbing and all) is the only way to watch this movie.

I could care less about the Italian soundtrack not being included.
