I blind bought this one and finally got around to watching it last night (have been putting off watching several Blus until we got our new TV). I think the movie holds up well and was a really enjoyable experience. The bus scene though was a bit jarring because the amount of grain etc seemed to be much more prominent than other scenes.

Maybe the TT version is not the best the movie can look; but overall I am very pleased with the transfer.

I'm not a scalper, but I just sold mine on Ebay to help pay for the Arrow version. Only got 2 bids in 3 days. Sold for $22.

I guess I was thinking of the FRIGHT NIGHT and CHRISTINE releases. I think NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD was fetching big bucks as well. THE FURY won't do well since there's been a lot of discussion claiming the Arrow release is superior. Even if you don't own a region free player you could always get the Arrow blu and copy it to a bd-r removing the region coding.

No claims about it.

Sold my NOTLD, too. Someone did the "buy it now" option for $40.

FRIGHT NIGHT currently has a price tag ranging from 250.00 to 500.00!!! Are people crazy enough to pay these prices?? You'd think the one asking 500.00 would throw in shipping but no, there's an extra 3.99 charge for that.

FRIGHT NIGHT II can be had for the low low price of just 409.98 + shipping. Didn't realize that Amazon allows the selling of bootlegs on their site. As far as I was aware there is no official FRIGHT NIGHT II BD release. Amazing what you could get away with using a custom cover.

Well yeah why would Ebay not let them sell it for whatever price they like? I don't love scalping but somethings worth is determined by how much someone will pay for it. For em price gouging only exists for things you NEED, water, food, ect.. And you are talking to a person who hates the limited edition model and really wished I would have got the German edition of Re-animator before it sold out and became super expensive.

Yeah but it's unfair to fans of these films that would be willing to buy them for fair prices instead of TT selling multiple copies of a product to people who are just willing to profit off the "limited edition" gimmick. I know, it's capitalism at it's finest but that doesn't make it right. Even if TT limited the purchase to 1 per customer I'm sure scalpers would find a way around that like having other people order the films for them. There's no way around it and as I said, Amazon and Ebay allow people to hike up the prices on their sites so I guess nothing can be done about it. I just find that in this day and age there shouldn't be such a thing as "limited edition" since studios can easily manufacture these titles on demand which has been proven with Warner's catalog. Sony even does titles on demand so I don't understand why they license the rights to TT. They should do it themselves and offer these titles to everyone without this limited crap. I find people are just in a hurry to order when they know the titles won't be around for long which just makes them sell out quicker. This is the reason folks don't take their time and read reviews before ordering which was the case with THE FURY. Actually this is actually why TT does what they do. So impulse buyers will drop their hard earned cash without waiting to see if a better release is around the corner.

I agree that what determines the value of something is what someone is willing to pay for it but that doesn't mean I'm not pissed off about it. I remember when the Criterion dvd of SALO : 120 DAYS OF SODOM was fetching 900 bucks on ebay when it was OOP. People were paying these crazy prices and I still don't understand it. They're just movies and eventually a better version will be released.

I did jump on that limited edition of RE-ANIMATOR just because Capelight did a great job on this release. I found it expensive but a lot better than what they're going for now. I also jumped on it because I heard the extended version won't be included in Second Sight's release. This is one case where I jumped on a limited edition but a lot of effort was put into this one. TT doesn't put a lot of effort in their releases.

Again Ebay and Amazon shouldn't do anything about it. Why would they? They would have to limit the price anyone could buy anything for. "Well that 1st issue of Spider-man cost 10 cents originally so you can't get 1 million for it". The only thing to do about it is for studios to stop the limited edition crap.

I agree.

Setting prices isn't the business of amazon or eBay.

EBay likely gets tens of thousands of new listings everyday. There are surely thousands of resellers offering countless products on amazon. These companies can't realistically be in a position to determine what constitutes fair or reasonable pricing...they'd need to hire thousands of people with expertise in countless areas of knowledge.

If I put my old Triuimph up for sale with a classified ad in the newspaper, I don't expect the newspaper staff to look up the value of my car and determine a fair price. Value is the business of the buyer and seller.

It's true I guess. If someone wants to shell out ridiculous amounts on something why should Amazon or Ebay stop them. Anyone with common sense would wait for a re-release of a film but if you're ok with paying 500 bucks for a blu-ray, more power to you.

Completely agree. The real solution is to stop with the limited editions.

Well, I recently sold my Twilight Time Blu-ray of The Fury and I only got about 20 bucks for it. That's not even what I paid... so I guess only the major, hyped up releases like Fright Night or Christine will garner the big bucks.

Arrow's Blu-ray of The Fury is vastly superior to TT's. I am proud to own it.

Well, there isn't much of a demand for this release in comparison. Fright Night and Christine don't have an overseas release available, not to mention Arrow's release is an improvement on TT's release.
