Well seeing as I came late to the party - why didn't I check this thread earlier? Why? - I did manage to nab an MYA of Alligator, some Blue Underground DVDs, a couple of Criterion DVDs, and the BD digibook of Clash Of The Titans. Now just to see if they honour them ...

The odd thing is, quite a few of the ones that I was clicking on where either not showing up in the listings, or where saying that they where no longer available literally a second after I added them to my cart. Now, this is easily explained - people getting in just the second before me, or them being withdrawn - but why then do they still continue to reappear at 1p in the listings when they are not there to actually purchase? Makes me wonder if there is maybe a software issue somewhere?

I prefer the US artwork myself.

check your orders. If they appear there then you'll probably get them. If not I doubt it.

I used 1-click ordering for each item instead of adding a load to my basket & 'got' most of them.Just checked how many I ordered & I can't see them honouring 64 items including several boxsets !.Be nice though.This situation happened to us in December when an Amazon seller wrongly listed a lot of dvds.Ordered ten & we're told they'd all dispatched but only received half the order.It was good of them to honour at least half the order & not cancel the lot as it was an obvious mistake.Supermart may just keep us hanging on then we'll get emails to say they should've dispatched by now & our cards have not been charged.

So do I, which is why I ordered it from Planet Axel instead of getting the UK federation.

In any case, Digibooks rule!

I don't know if any site does exactly what you want but, if you go to the IMDB and go to (to use your example) the Hellraiser page and click on 'Movie Connections', it will usually have the sequels, prequels and remakes listed, plus the films and TV shows were footage has been used.

Hellraiser (1987) - Trivia - IMDb

looks like the mad dash is over and the prices are back to normal. Typical of my luck i'm stuck in work being screamed at by idiotic members of the public over pennies when this happens... Sigh kept in till 10:30 by some knob who was irate over a 1.00 charge, eventually I hung the phone up on him because he wouldent shut up...

looks like i'm likely getting a bit of a mixed bunch
