Doubt these are gonna be sold out for a long time.....glad I got them ( being limited and me being a freak about these things) but I think I prefer the arrow part two, the synapse was colorful, yes, but it was harder to make out a lot of what I was watching ,as for part one yeah, better and more vivid colors but sort of the same problem .

Thanks! I did search on Diabolik, but I couldn't find em'. Only the Arrow BD's.

Thanks again for the link!

We also learned that Steelbooks are a massive pain in the ass! Hahaha! Any orders placed today will go out after the 4th of July holiday next week (probably on the 8th).

He's usually in from 10:30am-4pm weekdays and he can manually take your credit card orders over the phone, if you'd rather do it that way.

Grrrrr.... fine, I just ordered the first movie. But now that I've paid the ridiculous price and gotten stuck with the lame steelbook, they'd BETTER NOT do a standard blu-ray edition for cheaper.

sounds like they've got about 400 more copies of Demons 2 than they do of Demons. once they've gotten rid of those last copies of Demons, I wonder how long it will take them to sell out on Demons 2? I like the sequel, but I can't imagine too many people wanting to own it, but not the original...

Lame steelbook? These are two of the prettiest steelbooks that I own.

I don't doubt that Demons 1 will sell out briskly after this announcement. Demons 2 on the other hand... They might not even be able to give away the remaining stock once Demons 1 sells out.

At the pace Synapse works, a standard release doesn't seem likely in the next few years. After they've wrapped up all the Argento's and the Demons 2 steelbooks sell out, they might revisit it then. But even then it depends if they go the same route with the Argento titles. If they reprint standard releases of Demons while still trying to sell Suspiria (their last Argento out the door) steelbooks it will tank all steelbook sales.

I don't expect Suspiria until 2016.

"We are glad this little experiment with alternate packaging went so well for us" Really? I think it's safe to say that this little steelbook, limited to 3000, overpriced experiment failed miserably. They would have sold a hell of a lot more had they been reasonably priced in standard cases. This business model pushed A LOT of people towards Arrow's release(s).

I would say selling them out within a year at that price is a success. With the $60 Possession Blu-ray and $80 Nightbreed Blu-ray, people should be grateful this was only $50, especially considering all the work they put into it. I'm fine with paying a little extra if I know I'm getting a quality transfer, various audio channels, lots of extras, and a cool steelbook to top it off. People are fine paying $25-$30 for mediocre transfers and barebones movies, I don't see what the big deal is? I'd rather have one of these than two or three mediocre discs personally.

Anyone that chose the Arrow versions probably aren't huge fans of the films, as Synapse releases blows their versions out of the water.

I received mine today. Ordered when they mentioned the quantities were low.

Only got the first film, but if Demons 2 is still available come August, I'll order that one as well. Didn't want to buy both on the same credit card statement, buying them separately doesn't make it look as bad (even though it's the same amount of money).

I couldn't bring myself to buy it. Hope they do a standard release.

I was on the fence about these for awhile, but finally ordered them awhile back and my god, these are beautiful releases. Yes, they're pricey, but I am glad I got them.

I'm a big fan of Demons, but given my income I just can't drop $50 on a single movie release, no matter how much I wanted to pick it up. I was really excited when I heard Synapse was putting it out, but as soon as they put out the press release stating they would only be releasing them as $50 steelbook releases I said "nope". I'm still not sure why they didn't do a standard release alongside the steelbooks, they would've sold a lot more copies.
