1.0 out of 5 stars *product review not movie review, 17 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The House by the Cemetery (Arrow Video) Limited Edition [Blu-ray] [1981] (Blu-ray)
Ok before we start this is a review of the product as stated. If you want a film review go to imdb.com. Once again, like the beyond, another faulty disc. If and when I get this replaced I will do a follow up review but as I have no special features on this copy then its very difficult to review them. This will be the last arrow release I will buy. I am disgusted at the constant errors in they're manufacturing. At this stage there is no excuses for it. They delayed because they knew about the faulty disc and yet still released them. To me that's theft. They have taken money for goods which were not what you requested. Have amazon or more to the point Arrow came forward with any sort of compensation for these constant errors?? No! You are expected to wait weeks for your replacement and be happy about it. Makes me sick!!!

Do not buy this until Arrow or Amazon inform you the problem has been rectified.

You must've been in an unlucky minority - I preordered mine and it came for about the release date. Having not watched it though yet (having only watched it on DVD a few months ago) I kinda panicked when I read your review! Have just checked both discs and all seems to be in order thankfully. I guess some of the faulty packs must have trickled their way through to the retailers...?

@Paul WJM: It's not an unlucky minority that have been affected though. The last eight or nine Arrow Blu-Ray releases have all had one problem or another. You should read:

http://www.cinema-extreme.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/woohoo-arrow-screw-up-again.html

It raises a lot of valid issues that Arrow should answer.

Was referring to this particular issue rather than the others. I agree there are issues that Arrow should address, but I've picked up a number of their releases hitherto and haven't really had any problems. Plus, people tend to shout up when they do have a problem, whereas most remain quiet when they don't (i.e. if twenty people scream and shout about an issue, the fact that maybe ten thousand haven't hides an error ratio of only 500:1, for example). Anyway, as I say, I know they need to address a few things, but I think they've been doing more good than bad for the UK exploitation-on-blu market; for that I'm thankful that they exist.
