5.0 out of 5 stars Very good set, great value, 18 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Horror, Sex & Violence Collection (Arrow Videos 10 disc Blu-Ray Classic Series) - Amazon Exclusive (Blu-ray)
After hearing so much criticism over these arrow releases I decided that the most convenient way of taking the plunge with these films would be to try buying this 10 film set. I wasn't dissapointed. It is great value for the money. (even when you take into account the purchase denial of owning 'vamp' a film I still havent watched)

I can still see where some of the criticism comes from (there are noticeable compression issues esspecially on the fulci films ['city of the living dead' is of particular note as I have the Blue Underground version also and can detect the visible noise]) but with all cons aside Arrow have really put some good background work into these releases and some of the films have never looked better and maybe never will. I don't know how many labels are going to take the time to even do half as good a job as Arrow have done since many people still think these films have no value.

'Bay of Blood','Tenebrae','The Beyond' and 'Inferno' are particularily striking. Another thing people harldy comment on is the sound. Some of these films have a far better sound quality than some of the other labels releases (such as Blue Underground, though I like them too they tend to have lower bitrates soundwise) For example, all three audio tracks on 'Inferno' are DTS quality and it shows (I admit I like Blue Underground's video and colour much better though on that release).

Also, I give Arrow more good marks since I did unfortunately receive the 'bad disc' of 'The Beyond' within this set. I followed the replacement disc instructions, sent them a message the next day, and I recieved my replacement in less than 4 business days. I live in Canada also so it was quite a surprisingly quick transaction.

Thank you Arrow Video, and thanks amazon.co.uk

Hello James,
Thanks you for your thorough and balanced review.
I was wondering whether this collection contains all Blu-rays in their individual packaging which are also for sale separately, or whether it's one 'cheaper' box without individual cases?
