2 people in/near Kentucky received it on release date. The rest of us it appears are still waiting. My last pre-order from Family Video took a little over roughly two weeks after street date to reach me so I'm not worried yet. If I don't have it by next Friday I'll start to get concerned.

I pre-ordered it from Family Video on 9/16, it was delivered on Thursday, 10/25. It was shipped from a fulfillment center in Illinois. I don't know what day it shipped because I received my shipping notice the same day it was delivered.

Just bought it for $23.34 at my local FYE (alongside the Halloween II steelbook, a DVD and the Hills Have Eyes remake set) which is closing up shop.

Also had a "$10 off $50+ purchase" coupon, which helped even more.

How do these so-called experts not know that the 2.0 stereo track has surround sound baked into it and all you have to do is turn on Dolby Pro Logic to decode it into its proper LCRS surround mix?? The exact surround sound mix one would have heard in a Dolby Stereo equipped theater in 1982.

The term "2.0 Stereo" is just referring to the delivery system of the audio, not an instruction on how to play it back. Any movie in 2.0 stereo will have LCRS surround sound, you just have to press the Pro Logic button.

If one is equipped for surround sound at home, please don't listen to 2.0 stereo tracks on just two speakers. If so, you're doing it wrong. No Dolby Stereo theater has ever played the sound on just the front left and right speakers. Ever.
It amazes me how many people don't do this with 2.0 stereo tracks, due to them either not being aware they can do so or - as follows a discussion as I recall having on a thread on here a while back - some people actually don't want to do it lest they think they're messing with the original "intent" somehow. The "intent" was to have any Lt/Rt mix played in surround sound, they can be played in straight stereo of course but it wasn't what they were meant for.

As for the pitch issue, it's so weird how things like this creep (heh) in. By the very act of changing the speed of 25p audio down to 24p then the pitch will be corrected, I've used several PAL audio mixes in my Quest for the Original Audio and all I have to do in Audacity is change the speed down by -4.096% and the pitch is realigned with it, no dropouts or anything. If I can do that on a piece of ****ing FREEWARE it staggers me that these labels aren't able to do the same thing thing with all the tech at their disposal. And I'm not necessarily blaming Shout here by the way, as it appears that they've simply put on the disc what they were given.

As an aside, I encountered the reverse of this issue on the recent 4K UHD of The Evil Dead from Lionsgate: I'm quite sure that the 5.1 audio has been pitched down, so everything sounds deeper rather than chipmunkier. As with the various reactions to the 5.1 for Creepshow, not everyone is sensitive to such things as you can have great hearing but terrible pitch sensitivity, and vice versa. In any case, pitching stuff down never seems to be quite as rabidly reacted to as pitching something up. American Werewolf's 5.1 audio is also pitched down and there are very few people who've noticed it.

It is. The 2.0 track sounds great as well.
This and Night of the Living Dead are my favorite horror releases this year.

re: colour timing. Did anyone notice anything drastically different about the colours of this transfer? The only really big difference I found was in the scene with Nielsen in the bathroom. It looks more green than blue.

The other changes were mostly just enhancing the lighting effects to ensure that the shots match and the transitions are smoother.

I'm in awe.

As previously posted, my Creepshow posters, along with my Halloween III poster, all arrived pretty much demolished.

Frustrated, I contacted Shout over the issue.

Today I received a replacement Halloween III poster. I expected it to be wrecked like the others. Instead, I was amazed to see it was totally intact. Not a crease, wrinkle, or crumple! Totally pristine!

It arrived in a tube with a label on it via USPS.

Proof that it's possible to send these in good condition when they aren't destroying them all themselves at the distribution center as they're rolling them.

This gives me hope for the Creepshow replacement posters. They sent me an email and said they are working on getting some replacement posters and they're not ready to ship yet. So it might be worth contacting them if you weren't happy with the condition they arrived in.

Just a heads up--I was in the same situation and finally wound up calling FV. I was told they are out of stock, and that mine, as well as many others, apparently, are on backorder, with no timeframe whatsoever of fulfillment. Therefore, I went ahead and cancelled and will pick it up elsewhere.

My Blu-ray from Shout is still processing. I ordered Oct. 15, it was a re-order since my original order from over the summer was canceled because an old CC# was attached to the order. They were nice to send me the two posters I was owed, which came in great condition, but I'm wondering about the Blu-ray...

Well that's annoying. Particularly since others received theirs after ordering on the same day (9/16) as me. I also paid by paypal which means that they have already collected payment from me as I placed an order for this and Return of the Living Dead 2 at the time.
