    I'm a forum member, Ben, but I've got a review (all 11,000 words of it - phew!) of the Arrow set at this linky: http://dvdcompare.net/review.php?rid=4731

    There are some big screengrabs from the presentations of all five films at the bottom of the review.

    I'm a fan of the films and I'm extremely pleased with the set - the recycling of the old presentation of PHANTASM II aside

    So Well Go is re-releasing the PHANTASM series in a new box set this October. Bloody Disgusting has the early details,but the biggest news about this release is that PHANTASM II will be from a new 4K master.

    Does Coscarelli have anything on the horizon? It's been a long time since he directed John Dies At The End.
