    I'm not interested in paying more for a steelbook, so I'm assuming a regularily packaged version will also be made available
    Odeon mentioned that a standard version will follow but probably not until 2016.

    I'm going to opt for Odeon's DR. TERROR'S HOUSE OF HORRORS, but I'll definitely pick up THE DEADLY BEES. I just read the novel on which it's based, A TASTE FOR HONEY by H.F. Heard, last week!

    Got an early look at the booklet for the upcoming Eureka Blu-ray release of The Skull - not only is there a really solid essay in there but there's a whole lot of press book and advertising materials too. It's a little thing maybe, but little things add up and I'm glad to see some care being put into this release. Flawed or not, I love The Skull.

    Good to hear. I've been on a bit of a Kim Newman bender so I had THE SKULL high on my wishlist.

    Anyone upset with the UK Blu-ray release of Dr. Terror's House Of Horrors should know that an exchange program is now being put in place.
