Comments attached to the Blu-Ray News 'Obsession (UK BD) in June' on Movies @ The Digital Fix

Rated '18' surely this must be a mistake? it's rated 'PG' in the USA and a '15' on the Anchor Bay DVD (Which I've got) surely this is due to the added material?

The film is now classified as a 12 by the BBFC. Could just be mistake unless one of the extras is an 18.

I suspect the '18' is just a holding certificate until Wotan's Wake is classified - I'd imagine it would get a 12 or a 15.

Possibly the worst cover I've ever seen and definitely not worthy of this fantastic DePalma film.

Can we see the other covers?

I wouldn't use the one shown to advertise this film!

Arrow normally put out pretty good pack shots, I would expect one before release.

Yes there have been other non-Dario Argento films released by Arrow Video, but this film is the second non-Dario Argento title from Arrow Video I've been interested in (along with Day of the Dead (1985).

Not a fan of Dawn of the Dead?

I've got their BR releases of Dawn, Day, Battle Royale and City of the Living Dead (which I'm yet to watch), they really do put together great packages. I haven't seen Obsession but I'd expect this to be great for fans.

This release is fantastic - superb picture quality and interesting to see the two short films. Personally, I love the new artwork and it think clearly does 'suit the film' given it's a homage to Vertigo.

What's the score with this? Rumour has it that it's gone OOP and the stupid Amazon prices seem to confirm it.

All stock burned at the Sony distribution center in August. As a recent release, it will be repressed in due course. It's only the poorest selling older catalogue titles that won't be. Don't pay silly prices for this one.
