Totally agree. A bells and whistles Blood Island Trilogy set is exactly the sort of project Arrow should be focusing on.

As did I. The $49 Seiki might not be the best on the market, but it's affordable, and in the long run (potentially ) saves a ton of money if you have the patience to order import blus.

Thanks to Cujo for spotting this - Arrow have submitted Dark August (1976) through the BBFC:

http://www.bbfc.co.uk/releases/dark-august-1976

Surely one of the films on the next AHP set? Hopefully this will be announced for May.

Not necessarily. The AHP set isn't sold out yet, and they released the singles of those a little while ago.

It's nice to see that Black Venus has finally found a distributor. I remember it getting solid reviews when it made it's festival debut a few years ago. A lot of comparisons to Pasolini's Salo. Nobody would touch the film due to it's subject matter.

I haven't seen Smash Palace but it looks like a good blind buy. The winner of the month is Irma Vep. Too bad it's UK exclusive. It's another Arrow Academy title that could just as easily be described as a cult film.

I eventually had to give up on the panasonic being my only "region-free" player. There were too many labels that could not have their region-locking bypassed. 88 Films, Studiocanal, and Anolis were three of them.

I bought a "defective" Seiki player on ebay a little over a year ago for $25. It was missing it's remote and supposedly made very "loud noises" while playing discs. I have a universal remote that I programmed and it controls it perfectly. It has never made any noises while playing discs. It's a great little player well worth the money. My only complaint is that it's picture settings out of the box are complete garbage. My TV is calibrated and when you boot it up the default brightness/contrast settings make your blacks a milky grey. After some tweaking and bouncing in and out of menus I got it dialed in and it looks great.

Some day I would love an Oppo player that allows me to be region free but I'm not made of money and I'll deal with my lower class region free players until then.

I have one of those basic Sony players that's been modded. I think it cost ~150. It works great.

If I'm remembering correctly, they have volumes 2 and 3 on deck, but they ran into an issue with one of the films that is in volume 2.

I'm just gonna pick up The Scarlet Box. I'm tired of waiting for a standard blu-ray set.

The Scarlet Box is a really nice set, well worth owning IMO.

If there WAS a standard version I'd advocate for it in a second, though, since the bonus disc is nothing special, unless you're a packaging guy.

I actually think the Scarlet Box is one of the nicest boxsets in my collection. I've seen it regularly around $50-$60 which is a great price. No reason not to grab that. The individual releases are all going to be around $20-$25 so at that price you are not saving any money unless you are only getting one or two of the films.

I had the Scarlet Box and ended up selling it off, but I held onto the bonus disc and book. I picked up the UK standard release because I really preferred the original poster art. At some point I am going to find a properly framed release of the third one. I still do not see how that got through QC.
