    And the majority of Arrow releases from now on will be region locked.

    Heads up that the SteelBook of Demons 1 & 2 is down to £16.99 right now at Amazon UK. Minus the VAT, it works out to £17.24 shipped (roughly about $28) to the US.

    The seperate Blu-ray releases are currently £28.98 for both.

    Even though that is a pretty good deal, I'll be buying the separate releases as I like the packaging and they will match my current Arrow blus.

    HMV.com is the same. I wasn't aware the Amazon price had gone down so I ordered from there.

    i had to bite at that price, i know how you guys in the US feel, i'm a UK resident so know all about editions not being released here, although i have to say we have been spoilt with the blu ray releases recently which is nice, but I have always been region free for the inveitable US only releases, region free from day one DVD and Blu-Ray.

    Here's part of a comment on Amazon.co.uk about the Arrow Blu-ray:

    "My review, is specifically about this Steelbook version of the films. Sadly, this release has a couple of issues fans should be made aware of:
    1) Partway through DEMONS, there is a break in the film, and an on-screen title comes up that says "End Of First Half", before continuing on with the rest of the film. This moment occurs, as the cinemagoers destroy the projection booth, and stop the film they've been watching from being projected. This issue does NOT exist in other versions of DEMONS I've seen, so I am a little shocked about this moment appearing in this release. It really breaks the tension of the moment, and it's a shame that Arrow have decided to include this in their version of the film. There's no real point or purpose, and it takes viewers out of the enjoyment of the movie."

    I guess we'll know in a few days if it's a widespread problem. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Demons-Stee...ef=sr_1_2?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1335125402&sr=1-2

    A lot of Italian films had intermissions during their theatrical run. This is probably why that card appears there.

    That intermission title was on a lot of european VHS of the movie... my country had one... a great nostalgic move for me.

    Arrow's posted this update on their Facebook page:

    And see here for some actual photos of the SteelBook packaging.

    Why do I have the feeling this is a move to boost the pre-orders for the Steel Book? I know a lot of people who weren't purchasing it due to the other materials not being included...and I would assume 5 days before release date the copies would be printed and shipped to various retailers so they would have them ready to go on street date.

    Thoughts anyone?

    I'm a little confused. I understand the steelbook version includes both films, correct? Is that photo of DEMONS 2 depicting the reverse side of the same case or is it a separate case? Judging by the photo it looks like a second case.

    That's the reverse side with Demons 2 on it.

    I hope the picture quality for this is good. I get worried with Arrow titles these days. My steelbook has shipped so I'll hopefully have it soon.

    Once again, this is why I ordered the 2 separate releases. Much more in each case for extras and I want them to look great next to my other Arrow blu-rays!

    Nice to hear that the picture quality is good.
