This edition of TCM 2 looks amazing. 100 page book included?! Pre-ordered. It's only 19.99 now, but that price is only good till August 12, then it jumps up to 34.99 so anyone who's interested might want to decide before then.

Cool, 3 for shipping isn't bad then.

It is strange that they now region lock everything, but are able to sell to other countries/regions.

Strange there will be a re-release of Night of the Hunter seeing as how the Criterion blu is only a few years old.

Why strange? They're different region releases. The Criterion Blu-ray was "A" locked anyway, so most people overseas were out of luck unless they were all-region capable.

Yeah. Sometimes Arrow and Criterion overlap in their releases for their respective regions. With Blow Out they each had enough unique extras that I bought both. With Night of the Hunter, Arrow has the same amazing doc that Criterion does, but loses most everything else. I'll just hang onto my Criterion for that one.

With Raro's penchant for delaying their releases for long periods it's entirely possible that the Arrow version will come out first. Has Raro even given an estimate when their Blu is coming out?

Heads up that Texas Chainsaw 2 went down to 22.50 on Amazon UK, and when you go through checkout the VAT subtraction makes it just 18.75.

21.83 total shipped to the US.

Since Arrow has improved a lot on these titles lately, I have higher hopes for the their disc, especially since the Raro transfers have too much DNR at times.
