United Kingdom Demons (Lamberto Bava) Pre-orders



Demons / Demons 2 Blu-ray



Demons Blu-ray



Demons 2 Blu-ray


Coming on April 2nd from Arrow with the sequel a week later.
The original is a bit pricey at £18 but Amazon have the sequel at a very reasonable £12. These must be among the titles I've bought most times, Anchor Bay, German Box, Japanese Box, Starz, PMD DVDs, I hope this is the last time I'll be buying them for a while.

$46 US Dollars for both of them off of Amazon UK. Worth it in my opinion. Loved these movies.

It's 50/50. Some Arrow titles are Region Free and some are Region B locked.

Also, guess what I am as fast as? A SHARK!!!

Yes, they've already been confirmed by Arrow to be region free.

Arrow's releases, unless noted, tend to be region free. The only ones I can think of that are not region free happen to be Battle Royale (post-Limited Edition), Bicycle Thieves, The Funhouse and Rififi. Those releases tend to be region locked due to the studios they're licensing the content from (Toei for Battle Royale, Universal for The Funhouse, etc).

Can anyone CONFIRM whether or not the extras will be playable on region A machines (I have a PS3)? I emailed Arrow but have not heard back from them :-(

Saw Demons on the big screen in 35mm a few months ago and was blown away. I am hoping Arrow knocks the transfer out of the park!

Yes. Arrow usually encodes all bonus material at 1080p. Even when they mess it up and encode it at 1080/50i, they fix it with future pressings (i.e. Tenebrae and The Funhouse).

I want to believe that, but I have read that extras on Inferno and City of the Living Dead do not play on Playstation 3 in the US.

Inferno's bonus material, on the Blu-ray portion, are 1080p. The bonus materials on disc two, which happens to be on a (region free) DVD, are unfortunately encoded for PAL (very similar to Arrow's release of Battle Royale). However, Arrow encoded City Of The Living Dead's bonus material at 1080/50i, which also will not work on a PS3. IIRC, Arrow never fixed that issue.

A lot of customers flipped out due to the release of City Of The Living Dead as many were importing their titles into the US and most Blu-ray players sold here don't support 1080/50i. Arrow vowed that all future releases would have their bonus material encoded in 1080p. When Tenebrae and The Funhouse were released, an error during the production process caused all the bonus material to be encoded at 1080/50i rather than at 1080p. Arrow fixed that issue with future pressings as it also happened to correspond with the 2011 England riots that destroyed all of Arrow's existing inventory.

However, I can tell you as it's sitting on my shelf, I own a corrected copy of Tenebrae that plays all of the bonus material just fine on my PS3.

Also, I'd pick up an Insignia Blu-ray player and follow the instructions on this very forum to set the firmware back to make it become Region Free. I picked mine up for $79 over a year ago and it has no problem playing PAL or 1080/50i content. I keep my PS3 connected to my home theater in the living room and I use my Insignia in my bedroom.

Thank you very much for clearing that up. I had heard so many different things and was not exactly clear on what was what.

There are so many Blus from overseas that I can't play I just may invest in the Insignia player in the near future.

Can't wait for Demons and Demons 2 in high def!

Arrow posted a poll on their website about making a Demons tshirt. Wonder if anything will come of that, I'd probably stump up the cash for a blu-ray/tshirt combo.
