    I love Phenomena, but owning the Arrow steelbook already, I'm not sure I can justify the price tag including shipping to the uk. I'm not sure I would watch any of the other cuts. Would be nice to have the extended soundtrack, even if I already have the soundtrack on vinyl and cd. What a shame they couldnt license Bill Wymans The Valley though. Still have to put some thought into this one.

        Ditto. I've still got the CREEPERS cut on VHS somewhere but never feel the need to watch it. The 116 minute cut is the only version I prefer to watch these days and (Sacrilege! Heresy!) I think the film works much better in Italian. The UK release ain't perfect, but given the drubbing the GBP has received recently and how expensive it is to import from the US these days, I doubt I'll be importing this. (If, by some almighty miracle, the pound works its way out of the doldrums and importing US releases becomes more affordable, I might consider it, however.)

        I'm sure this is great news for fans in the US, however :)

            Definitely waiting for the single disc on this one. Plus I already have Dario's World of Horror. It may have been the very first DVD I ever bought. That or Vampyros Lesbos.

              I don't blame you guys that are outside of the US for not ordering this, especially with the insane shipping from Diabolik DVD(I think it is like $21.) I, however, pre-ordered this right away as PHENOMENA was the first Argento film I saw (I blind bought the Anchor Bay DVD) and I love it.

              Here is how the discs break down:
              DISC 1 (Blu-ray):
              PHENOMENA (116 minute version)
              CREEPERS (83 minute U.S. release version)

              DISC 2 (Blu-ray):
              PHENOMENA (110 minute version)
              SPECIAL FEATURES:
              -Audio Commentary Track with Argento scholar and author, Derek Botelho and film historian, journalist and radio/television commentator, David Del Valle
              -DARIO ARGENTO'S WORLD OF HORROR
              -Interview with Andi Sex Gang
              -PHENOMENA - International Theatrical Trailer
              -CREEPERS - U.S. Theatrical Trailer & Radio Spots

                I'll definitely be ordering this soon. I had the Arrow disc when it was first released. At the time, it was pretty good, but it isn't so hot nowadays. Glad I can finally get a proper HD release of one of my fave Argento flicks.

                  I'll wait for the standard release as well. As hard as they wanted to present Tenebrae as a huge upgrade over the Arrow release, it is clearly not (with wrong colours and some edge enhancement) I think Phenomena won't be a huge uprade either to justify the very high price. If I order it from diabolik it will cost me $70 USD. They are out of their minds, especially diabolik.

                    Last time i ordered a few discs from Diabolik the shipping cost was $28 so it probably makes sense to order a few things at once. its still high though and will put me off ordering from them as much.

                      cant help but think the blu ray market will implode at some point in the future what with all these premium releases and the likes of code red going crazy licensing anything he can get his hands on. i think once the blu ray market stops attracting newcomers there will be a drastic reckoning. CR will go bust.

                        I don't know how, if their sales are as bad as he constantly says, CR can afford to license all the titles they are licensing.

                        About the transfer on PHENOMENA, the 116 minute cut is the same as the Arrow, but, supposedly, Synapse have fixed the numerous soundtrack errors found on the Arrow Blu. The 110 minute cut (and Creepers) are from a superior master created by Wild Side that lacks all the poor DNR that plagues the 116 minute master.

                          okay, I put this in my cart @diabolik (which is the only place international customers can order this) and proceeded to the checkout:

                          Total: $47.99
                          Shipping & handling: $21.50
                          Total to pay: $69.49

                          this is fucking insane for one movie! I wouldn't even pay this price fo a new 4k scan of all existing versions.

                            Diabolik has this in stock now.
                            Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?
