America Hates David Cronenberg and Me

Posted by Peter Hall - May 25th 2006 @ 11:50 am

Seriously, why the hell does Cronenberg, save for Criterion releases of course, get so shafted with his American releases?  First I came across a Canadian Cronenberg Boxset.  But hey, at least that’s a region 1 release, so if I wanted to pay the shipping fees…

But then England had to slap me in the face with this bad mutha:

Look at that thing!  It’s times like this that make me respect my conscious decision to not buy a region free DVD player, because I know I’d only dig myself deeper into debt ordering things like this left and right.  But I think living in abject squalor may be worth owning that beast.

It comes in a freaking telepod!  Come’on!!

And if that image doesn’t do the trick, read the details of everything in this unholy set at the solid UK horror blog I Spit on Your Movie and then proceed to hurt inside like I do.

    Cool. That’s even better than the region 3 Phantasm box set I bought last year.

    Also, region-free players are way cheap now. You can get them for under $100.
