4.0 out of 5 stars The Howling comes to the UK.... almost..., 2 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Howling: Collector's Edition [Blu-ray] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
I find it odd that Amazon.co.uk feel able to offer UK customers the Region A-locked US version of Joe Dante's classic werewolf movie on import but don't have enough joined-up thinking to direct potential customers to import from their own French site where it's easily available for EUR14.99 plus shipping under its French title HURLEMENTS. It's still in English and Region B, though. Check out http://www.amazon.fr/Hurlements-Blu-ray-Dee-Wallace-Stone/dp/B0038N8TCW/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1370195715&sr=8-1&keywords=howling

That said, am I the only one who's p**sed at UK distribs who feel that Brit consumers aren't good enough to want BDs of classic genre movies? Grrr....

A quick look through Amazon.fr shows me WESTWORLD, FLESH AND BLOOD and BLOW OUT (only previously available as a Criterion Region A premium disc). Worth checking out. Come on Amazon UK - offer us these titles too without the pain of importation.

Thanks for the heads up on the french Amazon site... I agree, I'm a huge fan of Shout! Factory and their ethos to do justice to old genre releases, but find it difficult when they only produce region locked product. Arrow seem to be their UK counterpart, but after their initial run of Argento and Fulci, they now seem to only focus on lower end genre fair, whereas Shout! seem to have a great deal with Universal and are really pumping out their studio produced 80s horror output... Looks like I will have to get that multi-region blu ray player, after all then...

Might want to be careful - I got the Region A special edition of The Burning, and have a fully officially worldwide-capable Multi-region player by Sony - and The Burning is the only Region A Blu-Ray it won't play. It comes up saying 'Invalid Region' and won't do a thing. It looks like even if you have an official multi-region player, the coding on Shout Factory discs ensures that some players just won't play it in the UK, come hell or high water. Region B in French might be a safer option.
