I've been trying to offload my tin for a couple of years but as I said on the Back to the Future thread the tin packaging fails to live up to the expectations because its not that appealing.Sold mine on the bay a few weeks ago in anticipation, Got back about the same as what I paid for it, Thought it might have fetched more tbh.
OFFICIAL RETURNS POLICY FOR ARROW VIDEO'S THE BEYOND BLU-RAY and DVD
Okay folks, when your copy of The Beyond (Blu-ray or DVD) arrives, check it to see if it has the monochrome opening. If it does and you want a replacement, all you need to do is drop us an e-mail here, but go through the checklist below to make sure you send the right information:
1. Attach a scan or a good quality photo of your shipping slip or store receipt. If your e-tailer doesn't send paper-based shipping slips, please forward the shipping e-mail you receive (please note this is only for e-tailers that don't issue paper slips).
2. Include in the e-mail your full title, name and postal address with post/zip code.
3. Please also confirm in your e-mail the retailer name where the disc was purchased from.
4. Send e-mail here.
5. Please allow up to 21 days for processing – where possible Arrow will ship as soon as they can.
Once that is done, please be patient whilst Arrow process and arrange a replacement disc. Please use the checklist before you e-mail Arrow Video to make sure you have provided all the necessary information so that your replacement disc order can be speedily expedited.
This is the same policy for DVDs and Blu-ray Discs and for Arrow Video costumers from all around the world, not just in the UK.
Arrow Video would like to thank customers for their patience and hope that the final discs will bring The Beyond to life like never before.
Whatever you do, don't voice this on their Cult-Labs forums: you run the risk of receiving the same treatment as the "ungodly warlock" at the beginning of said film!It's patchy. Not got time to view the whole thing or to take screencaps (am running late with a podcast that needs to go out tonight) but watching the intro it has that "jpeg" or "old VHS" tape look. Hard to describe without showing it, but basically extremely soft, almost streaky look.
Much of the guff you can FF through but some titles cannot be skipped entirely.Or you could, you know, use the skip to next chapter button and head instantly to the titles? No one is forcing you to watch it, it is skippable.
