Does Arrow's Legend of the Holy Drinker only come in dual format edition?

B&N says it's a DVD, but I suspect it's the dual format edition (particularly since the picture shows a Blu-ray sized case, the price is that of a blu, and I can't seem to find info on a DVD-only release)

Yeap, it's dual format. B&N did the same 'mistake' with Dead-End Drive-In before, I remember.

I didn't get tracking with my shipment, but I used the more expensive shipping option. It shipped Monday, and arrived Wednesday. Two days between the UK and the state of Tennessee is okay with me. I pay almost that much for similar size Global Standard shipments from Amazon UK and it takes 9+ days.

Another note: It looks like there's a £7.50 shipping charge for every two boxsets--in other words, the charge is the same for one or two boxsets, though it doubles if you add a third. So try to order single items in batches of four and boxsets in batches of two to minimize your shipping costs.

Swo, thank you for your informative posts! This advice reduced my shipping costs (across multiple orders). I also noticed that one boxed set pushes the shipping to £7.50, but then I could add up to 7 single titles and still have that same £7.50 total shipping. I almost jumped on the Dekalog set, but someone noted in the Amazon thread that it had dropped to £30 (after VAT reduction that's £23), so I picked it up there (for the Tony Rayns and MichaelB extras). Then I put the Carrie LTD edition (which is treated as a box, and had limited availability but now appears sold out) in the cart to replace it, but noticed it had dropped to £23 on Amazon (£18 after VAT), so I bought it there. All these tips and hints came from the forum, so thank you to everyone for sharing!

I wound up buying 12 blu-rays across 3 orders (only £6.75 total shipping... would have been £14 on Amazon!):
Massacre Gun (for Tony Rayns extra feature)
Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (Stephen Prince commentary)
One-Eyed Jack (another Prince commentary)
Day of the Jackal (one of my father-in-law's favorites, and the R1 DVD is poor)
Network (I have the "Mad as Hell" book and wanted to see the visual essay)
Jamaica Inn (commentary and Donald Spoto interview)
Hangmen Also Die! (solely for the subtitles - I already have the Cohen, but some house-members have hearing problems)
Caltiki - The Immortal Monster (blind buy, but sounds like my teen boys will love it, and keen on the Tim Lucas and Kim Newman extras)
Big Knife (Glenn Kenny commentary)
Sweet Smell of Success (Philip Kemp extra, complements the great Naremore commentary on CC)
Fireman's Ball (for the MichaelB extra!)
Closely Observed Trains (for the MichaelB extra!)

50% off Arrow US titles at Barnes & Noble

I picked up the Region A-only Dillinger (another Stephen Prince commentary!) for $14 (after 25% coupon and 10% member discounts) that I had been eyeing. Thank you again for the tips! What a valuable forum, saved me $20 at least.

Wait, did you buy Dillinger from an actual B&N store? Mine never stocks Arrow, amazingly.

Most of the stores around me only carry a few token arrow titles in the horror section. There is one store about 60mi from me that has an arrow section, though (Dublin, CA). The section isn’t HUGE (about 1/4-1/3 the size of the criterion BD section), but it exists! This particular store is open until 11 every day, save Sunday, too.

Of the 5 stores closer/equidistant (one of which has no real media section at all), I think this is the only one.

So, they exist, but I think they’re rare.

I did, indeed! They don't carry very many Arrow titles, but do have a good selection of Criterion. I looked up a number of Arrow titles that were in my Arrow.uk cart, and this was the only one in stock at my local store. I think you could ask your local store to order it for you (for in-store pick-up), that would allow you to get the same deal.

The in-store deals are actually not as good as online at the moment (but close). I drove to my store today and raided the arrow section, but only a handful of titles were 50% off. The rest were 40%. With member discount it came to about 46% and I figured it was good enough for now. I also picked up several gift certificates for the bonus $10 certs and had 2 coupons. I paid like $47 for female prisoner scorpion (not counting the gift card bonuses) and under $25 for the OOP house collection. Pleased overall.

Hi there,

After investigating, we can confirm that we had the DVD and BD barcodes set up incorrectly on the website. As this is our mistake, we will arrange for a free dispatch of the Blu-ray.

We have collated all customer addresses who got delivered the wrong format and you should receive your Blu-ray next week.

Apologies once again, and please feel free to keep the DVD as this was our mistake.

Please quote Customer service ticket number x in any further correspondence.

Thanks,

The Arrow Team

Arrow in response to my receiving the DVD of Zoology instead of the Blu-ray.

Has there been any mention of the Second Run titles being added to the new store?
