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.

Amazon UK you need to wait until after release date for shipping to a delivery address outside UK

It's not just Arrow as It's been happening with various other labels releases especially with the smaller independent labels
Major film studio labels releases like Warner/Universal/Sony etc most not affected that is why you can do pre order with those releases

Some labels you see as available to order just before release date or need to wait until after

Arrow titles can be a good few weeks after release date and some be over a month for a delivery address outside UK

It's because Amazon won't know which warehouse will be getting stock until closer to release date or after
Some amazon UK warehouse not setup for shipping outside UK when UK left EU on January 1st

Stock has to be moved from UK to EU warehouse or to another UK warehouse and that results in a delay for customer based outside UK from doing an order on some releases
Some you dont see available for months or still be listed as unavailable as stock not been moved to another warehouse

The same happens for customers based in UK from doing a pre order on some releases from Amazon EU websites as in Amazon Germany/France/Italy etc
They see pre order listings as unavailable but customers based in EU can pre order

Listing gone from Arrow Films UK store that usually means they are sold out

If you not ordered yet I would suggest your order while stock still remains with Zavvi/Amazon/HMV
