<<<<Also have 7500+ dvds not added to my collection. Decided it was a losing battle. Also have several hundred blu-rays to add but only adding when watched as a rule of thumb.

As I said on the Arrow thread this is excellent news. Was surprised as I thought Tartan would have the rights to this particular title still. Perhaps it means we'll see other ex-Tartan titles, like John Woo's Hard Boiled or the Jodorowsky films (all of which would be perfect for Arrow to release).

A visually inspired film, and I hope Eureka get jealous of the attention this release gets and seriously consider upgrading their DVD of the similarly insane House (the Criterion BD has been out for years)!

It's a fun film, but I wouldn't pick it up for the prices Arrow charge, maybe I'll pick it up pre-owned.
Remaining Films of 2014 I'll check out: Men, Women and Children. St. Vincent. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Dumb and Dumber To. Exodus: Gods and Kings. Big Eyes. Unbroken.
Best Films of the Year so far: Boyhood. Calvary. Mr. Turner. Mommy. Frank. Godzilla. Nightcrawler. Gone Girl. Interstellar. The Raid 2. The Rover. The LEGO Movie. Under the Skin.

Or maybe even in a few months on Zavvi. I paid like 11 for the Burbs' shortly after its release and I see now that Killer Klowns From Outer Space is just 10 on Zavvi.

The prices Arrow charge on their webshop kinda suck, but with the frequent Zavvi discounts+coupons and the occasional Arrow webshop sale their releases can be bought for very reasonable prices. Certainly a lot more reasonable than Criterion.

That is great news. I have it on DVD and will certainly buy it on BD. Hardly a masterpiece, but I enjoyed it.
