Of course. It's not that, they've pulled this before. A joke April Fools announcement, then actually announcing a title for real.

I'll be happy for everyone if it's real, but I actually think The Burning is a bit over-rated

I do too to be honest, although I prefer it to Friday the 13th.

I can't see it being real - unless Arrow have managed to unravel the hellish rights web in the UK somehow.

THE BURNING'S good and one of the better slashers. But the best thing about it is Tom Savini's gore effects. I actually prefer HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME, to be honest.

It's real!

*** SURPRISE NEW UK TITLE ANNOUNCEMENT – THE BURNING! ***

You didn’t think we would be THAT cruel did you? UK fans the long wait is FINALLY over... The Burning is coming to Arrow Video!

Pre-order links and more information will be shared in the coming months so do keep checking back for updates!

--------
GATHER AROUND THE CAMPFIRE TO DIE!

1981 was a bumper year for the slasher genre, with films such as My Bloody Valentine, Halloween II and The Funhouse all slicing their way through the box office. But of all the stalk-and-slash films released that year, few remain as gruesomely effective as The Burning.

An ill-judged prank at a summer camp results in a fire that leaves caretaker Cropsy hideously disfigured. Discharged from an intensive care unit after five years, hospital officials warn him not to blame the young campers who put him there. But no sooner is he back on the streets than he’s headed back to camp with a rusty pair of shears in hand, determined to exact his bloody revenge.

One of the more notorious of the “video nasties” to be banned in Britain thanks to its standout gore effects courtesy of FX legend Tom Savini, The Burning is also notable for early performances by Academy Award-winner Holly Hunter and Seinfeld’s Jason Alexander, as well as a standout synth score from Rick Wakeman. Long absent from UK home video shelves, The Burning is finally back to reclaim its status as the ultimate summer camp slasher movie.

**SPECIAL FEATURES TO BE REVEALED**

And if you didn’t already guess, this won’t be released in a limited edition foam burger package. Sorry!

Had a dispatch notice for Bride of Re-animator, fingers crossed it comes for tomorrow but I'm guessing it wont.

Yay! Now, everyone else buy a copy so it sells out quickly!

I'm not that familiar with The Burning and have only seen it once, years back on the vipco dvd. But given how many people have asked for it over the years and how long the wait has been for a decent version i would expect Arrow to give this some serious bells and whistles treatment.
