    Although Bill did use that excuse for their worthless version of The Last Victim saying that was the director's current intention. Arrow have just done the same with Versus, reportedly claiming that Kitamura decided to remove the tinting as opposed to it being a fuck up.

    Exactly. I think the VS boys are brilliant businessmen.

    I think it will.

    "We had around 250 extremely damaged RAD lenticular slipcovers from our Halfway sale. Due to that, we have 250 slip-less versions of RAD that will be available on Friday. If you already have a copy of RAD, please do the right thing, and do not double dip.

    Once these slip-less versions of RAD are sold, we have nothing left. As in zero. These will go quick (like a couple minutes quick), so get to our sale exactly at 12:01am EST if you want a shot. Also, just adding these to your cart will not reserve your copy, your copy will not be reserved until you completely finish the checkout process. So, if you really need RAD, buy it first and then use our nifty "Add to my existing sale order" FREE shipping option to add any additional orders to your package. Obviously, limit 1 per customer. Also, during the past six months we've received thousands of emails (not kidding) from people trying to buy copies of RAD. To be fair to all, we do not take 'dibs' via email (or phone or anything)."
    I was able to snag one of these before it sold out in two or three minutes.

    From the Facebook group about subscribers:

    INFORMATION FOR SUBSCRIBERS

    As we close out this crazy year, we want to thank all of you for believing in us and believing in genre film preservation. We say this every year and mean it every time: we can't do it without you. With your help, we've been able to digitally restore over 500 feature films and physically preserve thousands of others in our film archive, and with your continued support that number will just keep on growing!
    We've spent the last few months putting together what we truly feel is a stellar lineup for 2021; better than any previous year. Not only will there be at least two more giallo collections, more slashers, crazy Euro-horror, jaw dropping regional horror, 70s exploitation, Mexican horror and exploitation, but as package subscribers you will receive exclusive 50% off SRP coupons for everything released by our sub-labels, VSA and VSU, and starting in 2021, all Partner Label releases (AGFA, Fun City, Utopia, Pulse, etc.) will also have subscriber-exclusive 50% off SRP coupons! Just think of the possibilities!
    To thank you for your loyalty, we are also offering returning subscribers a $70 coupon for the 2021 packages. That's an additional savings of around 8%, depending on which package option you select! Coupon code: ..........<<>>.............
    Speaking of coupon codes, the two new VSA releases will have the codes listed on their product pages. The VSA code will remove $8 from each of the VSA releases. Important note: our cart is limited to one coupon code per checkout. So you will need to place one order for the 2021 package and another for the VSAs.
    To minimize confusion as to which releases are already included in your package, we will be including that information on the product pages. It will be easy to find out, just read the descriptions prior to purchase.

    Lastly, we've made an important change for hardcore titles, in that all such releases (including French/Euro hardcore) will be released under our Peekarama sub-label. Just like VS, Peekarama will be Blu-ray only from here on out. Same quality restorations. Same stellar slipcovers. Just a different branding. This doesn't affect the subscriptions in the sense that we are going to continue offering multiple options, the COMPLETIONIST package will include Peekarama whereas the HORROR & EXPLOITATION package will not. Also, even if you purchase the HORROR & EXPLOITATION package, you'll still receive coupons to buy them a-la-carte, at 50% off SRP. And this doesn't mean we are slowing down, 2021 will have just as many hardcore Blu-rays as 2020.
    See you Friday!
    ~ Team VS
