It was actually spotted during the authoring of our colleagues' Second Sight Films' UK disc which was to street soon after our release. Whether or not it was easily noticeable however does not change the fact that they are indeed errors and the sound house have gone back to the elements to correct their mistake.

As such we are offering a Version 2 replacement disc for customers. We will also be taking this opportunity to correct a skipped frame within the feature.

If you've purchased THE CHANGELING and wish to get a replacement disc, please email changelingreplacement@gmail.com with your receipt or confirmation of purchase (from wherever you purchased it; this is NOT only applicable to purchases from the Severin store) and we will ship your replacement as soon as we have finished goods (about 3-4 weeks to allow for re-authoring and replication).

In addition we have been alerted to the fact the first run of the Soundtrack CDs also have a glitch in Track 29. We will also send a replacement CD along with the Blu.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your continued support.

excellent customer care. i wonder if punters will get the same care from Universal for their totally botched Creature Legacy set?

I have three of those films and really like them all.

To be honest i don't think an Eddie Romero box set would sell many units for Arrow at forty quid a pop in the UK.
keirarts and Rob4 like this.

It wouldn't have to be that big and expensive

The Arrow site currently has 'The Black Society Trilogy' DVD (three films [each with a commentary] and two documentaries on two Discs) for 15:00 and 'Blood Bath' blu-ray (four versions of the film on two discs, plus three documentaries [one lasting over 80p minutes]) for 18:00

Surely it would be easy to put all four of those films, a documentary putting them into context & trailers on two discs, and then sell them for 25 max

It looks quite attractive in terms of extra features:
  • Don't Fear the Man-Eater - Interview with Writer/Star Luigi Montefiori a.k.a. George Eastman
  • The Man Who Killed the Anthropophagus - Interview with Actor Saverio Vallone
  • Cannibal Frenzy - Interview with FX Artist Pietro Tenoglio
  • Brother and Sister in Editing - Interview with Editor Bruno Micheli
  • Inside Zora's Mouth - Interview with Actress Zora Kerova
  • Trailers

Hmmm. Wonder how this is going to affect things

"UPDATE (10/10/18): When fixing the audio, Severin did a new encode of the video and inadvertently used their copy of the master pre-cleanup of the scratches and cue marks present on the negative."

sounds like Severin's quality control is in a real mess at the moment.
