Picked up a German blu-ray release of Watchers II. Limited to 777 copies.

Unlike the Scream Factory release which had both fullscreen & widescreen versions, this just has the fullscreen version. Not a big deal, as it was released straight to video.

Today was like Christmas, a lot of stuff arrived at the same time:



Of all these, Girls Nite Out is not from today, but I wasn't sure if I had posted. It was a gift from Arrow because they mistakenly sent this instead of Six Gothic Tales. I offered to return it, they kindly let me keep it.

I have very high hopes for the remaster of Invaders from Mars.

The Sherlock Holmes Vault is chock-full of odds and ends to savour over this Winter. The game is afoot!

La piťce de rťsistance is the Empire of Screams boxed set. So many memories of Friday-night VHS rentals. Most of these I haven't watched since those days. Robot Jox is a favourite of mine. Time to retire the old DVD copy.

Last but not least, two 3D treasures, The Maze (1953) and Dynasty (1977). I've been meaning to ask: do we have a 3D-dedicated thread somewhere? I've looked but didn't find.

Thanks for reading!

Default The Exorcist

The new 4K Ultra HD set arrived yesterday from HMV containing four discs: the Original Theatrical Version and the Extended Director's Cut on both 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray.

I sampled the 4K Ultra HD discs of both the theatrical version and director's cut and the AV quality is outstanding with vibrant colours, deep black levels, high detail, and Dolby Atmos tracks that are clear and immersive.

I have seen The Exorcist more times than I can count and there are sounds I have never heard before coming from all around the room – I'm looking forward to closing the curtains, dimming the lights, and watching the theatrical version later this week.

I popped into HMV on the way home to pick up The Exorcist and it was sold out, I'll check again next week.

This is why i've given up pre-ordering the majority of things.

The delivery dates are usually days and some cases a week after the items are released.
