Did anyone else who ordered the Hammer set as soon as it went live get this? Nice wee bit of customer service here!

"Dear Darby,

Thanks for the order with Imprint Films.

It should be noted that the price-point initially listed on the website for Hammer House of Horror: The Complete Series (i.e. $54.95rrp) was loaded in error. The actual RRP is $79.95.

We will be honouring your order at the invoiced level. The website has now been updated.

Thanks again for your support of Imprint Films!

Best wishes,
The Imprint Films Team"

Have got Network's release of Hammer House of Horror. However, I may get Via Vision's release as there are some exclusive extras. It'll be interesting to see which other TV series are made part of the Imprint Television line (ideally something which hasn't had a release in the UK).

Received my August releases today. While I haven't had a chance to look at the discs yet, one immedately apparent item I noticed is that ViaVision have gone from an all gloss slipcases from the first bundle to all matte slipcases with this bundle. It's petty I know, but for supposed "premium" releases, they could have at least kept using the gloss slipcases for both consistency and the fact that gloss covers have a more premium feel about them and gloss slipcases also hold up better to being rubbed by adjacent discs when they are removed from a storage rack over time.

Awww no more gloss :\

Hope you can give us some insight on transfer quality. I'm looking to get A Place in the Sun and No Way to Treat a Lady next week.

was having a look at their October releases and noticed Major Dundee is priced at $69.95! While it does look like a nice package with plenty extras, I'm failing to see anything about that is making it cost so much more than similar hard box limited editions from foreign labels like Eureka and Arrow. Am I missing something?

Yes, I'm not seeing the value there either. My biggest concern with that release is they are advertising the 4k master used as being from 2005!!! That's a 15-year-old scan at this point. Advances in film scanning have come along leaps and bounds in 15 years. I really hope that is a misprint because it's not a selling feature for me.

My guess is they've fubar'd the description and used the same middling transfer that Twilight Time used on their release.

From an initial look, the transfer on A Place In The Sun is far cleaner than When Worlds Collide release. No sign of film artifacts in the short scan I've given the film so far, so it looks to have been restored. This will probably be the first one I watch because it's probably the most challenging release of the lot due to the soft-looking nature of the cinematography. My previous DVD looked very soft as well. Hopefully all going well, I'll get the chance to watch 2 or 3 films from this second batch this weekend and I'll get back to you. Here's a few screenshots and a BD Info scan.

Is it more expensive ? not by much. If you look at Indicator box sets (42.99 for 3 disc THE WONDERFUL WORLDS OF RAY HARRYHAUSEN) with shipping + GST to australia is nearly $110 AU.

Major Dundee is a 2 disc set and also cheaper. Reality is these are collectors items, odds are you will never get a deluxe box edition of this film again. That's how i view it. They are all collectible items, not unlike steelbooks.

thats a set of 3 films though (the local release of a very similar 3 disc Harryhausen set from Madman is only $40, too). the equivalent would be Eureka's limited edition of A Fistful of Dynamite, which is also a two disc set featuring two separate cuts of the film, but also includes a 60 page book that the Major Dundee does not. I ordered that for $44 direct from Eureka. or Blue Underground's deluxe 3 disc release of House by the Cemetery which included the soundtrack CD, that i got for $52 from wowHD. i just don't see any value in the Major Dundee release that would justify being $17+ more expensive than those.

My main hesitations with getting into this label are the (necessarily) high shipping costs to the US and the uncertainty if someone else will release the same films.

I imagine it's the same as what folks in Australia have dealt with for years, just reversed.

A couple of US based retailers import these for sale. Bullmoose has the second wave up for preorder. They are a bit on the pricey side ($39.99), however at that price point they qualify for free shipping. DiabolikDVD is also importing these, but aren't putting up preorder links. They sold out of the first wave and when the second wave arrives they will just put them up to order. It's worth it to keep checking back on their "latest arrivals" page on a daily basis. Just some FYI.

I imagine Hammer House of Horror was licenced from ITV, which might be an indicator of what's to come (look at what else Network have released in the UK). Then again, they also have access to Universal, Paramount, Sony, and MGM, so plenty of options.

Speaking of Universal, I'd love to see releases of Kolchak, Night Gallery (if Kino aren't doing it), Darkroom and The Sixth Sense.

And for something a little closer to home, an official release of The Evil Touch (even on DVD) would be fantastic. No idea who the rights reside with though. Might be Paramount.
Have to admit, I've never heard of a TV series called The Sixth Sense (had only heard of the Bruce Willis film). But having looked at the show's description and some of the synopses for the two seasons of the show, I'd like to second this suggestion. It sounds like the show was better when it was an hour-long (including ads) show, rather than a half-hour show.

Have got the DVD release of Darkroom (would like to see that get a Blu-ray upgrade). The Evil Touch sounds good (hosted by Anthony Quayle).

I'm intrigued to see where Via Vision will go, with various studio options.

Yes i see, maybe a little more expensive but it seems they invest in new features rather than booklets. Depends what you value. Either way if you look at second sight "Walkabout". Single disc box with booklet, minimum $60 AUD to have delivered here. They are not that wide of the mark.

Postage worldwide has increased and everyone is getting stung with higher costs. Even the UK labels have all increased their postage costs.

I think this label has had a really good blend of features ie epic roadshow films, some niche titles & early sci-fi.

I love the uncoated slipcases - much more premium than the coated ones from the first release imo - but I agree that the lack of consistency is annoying.

If anyone from Imprint is reading this, some spot uv would go down a treat, even if it's just the title treatments.
