Got mine and it looks fantastic. It must be the corrected version and Arrow did the set some justice. A ton of extras and a bunch of paper collectibles. It also comes with a DVD.
Edit 3/2015: I received the error set but never even knew it or sent away for a replacement(stupid me). Sorry if I convinced anyone to buy the earlier sets through Amazon. Kind of upset Amazon knowingly sent these out knowing the issues.
No problem and for the cost of this set ($18 or so shipped) it is well worth it. I use to have the steel numbered box and this blows that right out of the water. The only problem is the higher definition really shows the limitations of the special effects Fulci used.
I just received mine last week and it has the incorrect disc. I contacted Arrow right away, and they told me they're sending a replacement. So, that's always an option, in case you receive an incorrect disc. Just search online for something like 'The Beyond Replacement Disc Policy' for instructions on what to email Arrow for a replacement. I followed the instructions on the cult-labs website, myself.
My copy was shipped on 21JULY and was STILL THE INCORRECT VERSION W/B&W OPENING.
I was able to receive my corrected replacement copy from Arrow in just a few days.
Of course, right after that Arrow announced they were stopping the replacement program EARLY because they were getting too many requests. Then, the fire/riots happened that destroyed most of the remaining Arrow stock which guilted Arrow back into the program. Whatever, Arrow. I guess it wasn't proof enough that Amazon was still shipping OLD STOCK at the END of JULY.
I know someone who ordered from amazon as he believed what it said on Cult Labs "All copies now in stock at our warehouse and with retailers should now be corrected."
Bluray arrived yesterday 22 October 2011 and it is STILL THE BLACK & WHITE INTRO version!!! I still do not know anyone who has got the corrected version from anywhere except from Arrow themselves So faulty Bluray discs STILL being sent by amazon at the end of Oct 2011...
Send it back to Amazon as faulty as per your description and keep doing it till you get a good disc (which "The Head Cheese" on Cult Labs assured everyone months ago that there were only a few B&W in the retail system and they had all gone months ago... yeah right!) as Amazon will be returning them to Arrow for them for credit!!
Amazon still sending out faulty discs...as of today 18 November 2011 http://www.cult-labs.com/forums/beyond/6196-beyond-replacement-program-important-news-10.html#post198622 I wonder why Arrow are still refusing to recall the faulty versions and supply Amazon with the corrected ones? To date I have still not heard of anyone who has got the remastered disc from any reseller.
Sorry, 4 years later.....I never rechecked the board or I would have answered you. I got the black and white opening and lower bit rate(I believe around 14Mbps). The contrast is also spiked a bit but I still think it's a decent transfer. I originally watched it on my 27 inch television so I really didn't notice the different issues I can see now on my bigger set.
Sorry again if I might have misled anyone about them shipping me the corrected set(even though they knew the issues before I even bought it). I honestly thought the one I received was the right one or I would have asked for a replacement.
I would still ask Arrow for a replacement as they were sending these out knowing they were faulty. The corrected disc does look very good especially on my 90" projector where the version you have really starts to look bad.
Yeah, I can now see the difference and what everyone was talking about. The picture is decent considering the age but still should never had to go through replacing it as Amazon knew they were selling bad discs and Arrow was supplying them. I started this discussion because people had been complaining for a couple of months about faulty discs and I still got a bad one.
The US just came out with their version so I just might wait to see the reviews and double dip(probably the same corrected transfer).
