Can this be a thread? They have at least a dozen titles that I want to buy right now. Tell me where to buy them.

They often have good deals going on at the sale page on their webstore.

House of Usher is still up from the Halloween sale they did.

This is really only of use to UK members, but I've seen all the recent Arrow Blus, and indeed bought them, in Fopp for £10. Excepting The Fury which was £12. These are better prices than any I've seen on-line.

Yes, Fopp usually have extremely attractive prices on Arrow releases, even the latest ones. I bought a lot from them for between £6 to £8 apiece.

Good prices on several Arrow releases on amazon these days: You can get both Maniac Cop and Bava's Bay of Blood for £6.25. Other titles going for that price are The Exterminator, Frankenhooker, Red Scorpion, and Fulci's City of the Living Dead. The Grace Jones vampire flick is £7.00.

Just what I've been waiting for! Remember that if you spend at least £50, worldwide shipping is free.

I am feeling like committing suicide. I got 10 of these titles in last two months at non-sale prices from Arrow and Amazon. ](*,)
I wish I could have waited for this day. The only one title I could get now is King of New York, but I will wait. I hope Arrow does these type of sales on a regular basis, especially when they have become one of my favorite UK labels.

That's what they do. They already got my money for Rabid Dogs / Kidnapped. I am still not sure what to do about it.

I misread the disclaimer, I thought it was saying that now, they changed it and the payment would be collected at the despatch date. My bad.
For Rabid Dogs, I'm in the same situation than you (I've pre ordered in september...). I'll wait a bit and will then email Arrow about their plans on these pre-orders.

£14.99 for the TCM2 boxsets, yes, I feel a bit ripped off too, since I paid £19.99 thinking it couldn't go any lower.
Bah, too bad for us, good for Arrow. I'm quite happy already with their early birds discounts.

I believe card charges are incurred immediately upon ordering or at least that seems to be the case with U.S. customers.

When I preordered THE LONG GOODBYE from the Arrow site I received immediate notification from a company called WorldPay. ("Your transaction has been processed by WorldPay on behalf of Arrow Film Distributors") I never received a confirmation notice from Arrow and when I went to their site two weeks later to cruise throught the specs on upcoming releases I checked my account page and discovered that there was no record of my order. By this time I had received my card statement with the charges (ArrowFilms.Co. UK) in dollars & pounds and I began to get a little uneasy. When I sent an email to gary@arrowfilms.co.uk and it was returned as undeliverable I began to get panicky.

I again emailed Arrow and got a prompt response from Laura Wilson who apologised for the situation and explained that their site was being updated and that the customer order history had to be temporarily disabled because it was "constantly showing the wrong information". She also assured me that my order had been received, confirmed as prepaid and was in the pipeling for December delivery. Others have subsequently posted with tales of difficulties at the site but as they more or less addressed the same problems I encountered I never bothered to comment. Their site now seems to be much improved although still somewhat clunky in some respects. My account information and order history are now updated and corrected.

Bottom line: your card will apparently be charged immediately upon ordering.

The sale has been extended to nearly all Arrow Video titles (except some limited editions/pre-orders/etc). Though I am disappointed to see Dressed to Kill had its price raised by a pound in the process of the extension!
But sheesh, why is the Dollar so awful right now against the Pound?

Anyone know how long this sale is going on for?

Is the only difference between the limited and regular editions of Lisa and the Devil and Black Sunday the reversible cover art/slipcase?

Yep! It doesn't even come with a poster (like those old slipcases used to) - so you're paying extra just for the box and 2 additional cover options.

I know that I could E-mail Arrow for answers to these questions, but it sounds like I can get a quicker response from knowledgeable posters here:
If my order is 50+ pounds, is free shipping to the U.S. applied automatically?
If it is a mix of in-stock and pre-order items, are they shipped as available or as a single shipment?
Thanks in advance.

You'll have the option to select a shipping option. If you have more than £50 in your cart, one of these options will be for free shipping.

Since we don't seem to have a "Where's my Arrow?" thread- I placed an order on the 9th, and it's still sitting at the warehouse. Has anyone else had that problem?

Here's a flash sale page. The sale prices aren't shown yet, but presumably these are the titles that will be discounted.

Sort of glad it doesn't include any of the newer titles (i.e., the only titles I need), because I really don't have cash to spare at the moment.

I was browsing the list with no problem, then right after the start of the sale, the web site was hosed.
