Oh yeah, it was 1 piece of bubble wrap :LOL: I was afraid it would come in a piece of cardboard or perhaps with just the shipping label slapped on.
You saying about shipping labels reminds me of how my local HMV seem to stick those bloody security strips on their Blurays.
They seem to stick them in the most inappropriate places. :D :cautious:

Love this set!

Have seen the original version and have just watched the Canes Version.

Have never seen the Dario version. Is it worth a watch straight away? Or best leaving it until I fancy rewatching?

For what concerns me, the Argento's cut is the best version by far. it is shorter, bit i think these cuts were necessary, the longer version adds nothing really interesting.
and most important, the original soundtrack is really bad... Watch it with the goblins soundtrack makes it a totally different and 10 times better movie.

Seen all cuts, and when i want to see it (at least twice a year) i always watch the Argento's cut
You should definately watch its straight away while the other versions are fresh in your mind !

This is one of the best releases (along with the Columbia Classics box set) of 2020. It was the first viewing of the film and it is far and away the best zombie film ever. Now hopefully SS will release Day of the Dead and The Night of the Living Dead on 4K (unless they are owned by a different distributor).

Would anyone be kind enough if they purchased the 4K release from Second Sight directly.... let me know approx dimensions of their package and weight of the set? Trying to gage how much a parcel forwarder may charge me to ship to Canada.

Thanks in advance
