I randomly came across this on TV one night when I was a kid and it scared the bejesus out of me so much that I didn't sleep lol... haven't seen it since then, but maybe now's the time! Like with their Carrie set, I wish the box/amaray used different art. It looks nice apart from that though.

If you want different artwork to the slipbox
The amaray will have as usual reversible sleeve with different artwork

Not sure why that didn't cross my mind, since they always use reversible sleeve artwork. :facepalm:

Just realised I had around £4 worth of points on the Arrow site anyway, so have placed an order. :)

Info on this release in regards to 4K Scan of the Negative

It's a brand new 2K restoration from a new 4k scan of the original negative, supervised and approved by writer-director Bernard Rose and director of photography Anthony B. Richmond

Negative Scan is a separate process to actual restoration
Some films are scanned at 8K/4K/2K before restoration is done

Example Lawrence of Arabia was 8K scan of negative and then restored in 4K

Thanks for the update just ordered
There is only the one thread of this release in the Blu-ray Collector's & Limited Editions forum

The other thread is in the Arrow Films forum

Arrow Films limited editions get posted in both Arrow Films forum and Blu-ray Collector's & Limited Editions forum so members don't miss out on a release as the arrow films forum sometimes has less views than Blu-ray Collector's & Limited Editions forum
