Nice looking set but not sure I want to spend that much on just the original in 4k as don't really care much for the other 2.

I'm a huge fan of the Children of the corn films! Been waiting for Arrow to put out a 4k release of the first movie but this boxset is even better. Ordered!!

There's a 4K special edition for just the first movie.
Yeah I saw it, I also quite like the slip on that release.
Problem is with it being a US/CAN only release it ends up working out quite expensive.
I might just hold out and see if we get the single release here at some point.

Is there a reason why still tons of Arrow releases from May onwards are not available on Amazon.co.uk for non UK people? Other labels are totally ok.
