I think you better contact The Haunting Remake Appreciation Society. As of today, the society only has one worlwide member.

But I will say this, the score by Jerry Goldsmith is about the only decent thing to come out of The Haunting re-make. Plus Mrs Douglas of course. Fine eye candy indeed. Made my Gothic hot poker stand to attention.

Anyone bought The Haunting (1999) yet? Looks like they're switching to Scanavo cases now. Eureka have mentioned that Amaray are discontinuing clear cases.

Just wondered how it looks.

I'm really surprised by Amaray stopping the clear cases, surely they sell enough of them to keep making them, ALL of the boutique labels were using them. They're all going to switch now rather than present the releases in the blue boxes.

For the HMV Premium it'll be fine because they're inside the slip box, it'll be more noticeable with labels that don't always have slips like BFI (who have already moved over) and Arrow and 88.

The one good thing is that there's slightly more room for the artwork. Been a few Premium Collection releases slapping that PC banner on there that cut off the top of people's heads compared to their US counterparts.

Derailing it a little, but I've started looking at UHDs recently and the artwork is falling into that same trap that blurays had when they first appeared, so much on the cover to obscure the poster art to let you know it's a 4K UHD, even on the slipcovers which makes them less than pointless.

Blade Runner for example, the slip has the ratings logo, a huge box for HDR, a banner across to say it includes UHD and BD and then the black banner across the top to replicate the top of the black plastic box, I absolutely despair...

I don't think I'll be buying many major label UHDs until the artwork settles down, might be a few more years yet!

Yeah I did.
Never even noticed the change! lol


Looks like Shameless has went Scanavo as well.
Baba Yaga and The Beyond both in clear scanavo cases.

Get some yellow scanavo's made!
