I do think Arrow have done a good job with DEMONS, but I do so wish that they had included ALL of the extras that the standard DVD and Blu-Ray releases have, in the Steelbook. That was really not a wise decision to leave the posters and comic books out of the Steelbook.
I certainly agree with you there. Usually when you pay a premium over a standard product you expect it to be better and in many cases this is true. In this instance I'd say quite the opposite. The single release editions offer a lot more for fans of the movies than the steelbook double release does. Reversible cover art, posters and comics are certainly nice to have and I would have liked Arrow to have at least included something from the single releases.
I think Arrow have been a little greedy, knowing that many fans will want all the extra goodies and will purchase both single releases which will cost more than the steelbook. There are also those who collect steelbooks and will want that version too. While steelbooks do look a lot nicer than the standard blue cases I don't want to fall in the trap of having to collect them. This is my first steelbook and I only opted for this version to save money, and I was lucky enough to get it for £16.99 too. I am a fan of the films but I will stick with the steelbook simply on principle.
I would have also liked to have seen the extras from the DVD on the blu-ray but they were not must have extras so don't mind so much. Sadly, they are not the first company to do this and they won't be the last. Above all else I wanted a good quality HD print and clear audio which they have done very well.
