All those extras and the Vinegar Syndrome releases still have interesting exclusive extras! Very much looking forward to this set.

Mondo Digital:
Easily one of the more lavish sets assembled for any genre filmmaker, this impressive collection will likely be the last word on this key figure in British horror for quite a long time to come.

Indicator continue their thankless work as one of those labels that keep fluking quality releases. Very much looking forward to this set. Even if the films fail to live up to expectations, I'm sure the accompanying extras will more than make up for it. Cheers to those who are clearly working hard on this release.

At check-disc stage we discovered framing discrepancies with both PREY and TERROR. These have now been rectified, and we have reinstated the full image area, whilst maintaining Norman J Warren's preferred grading and restoration choices. This discovery has meant that there will be a short delay [...]. Whilst we recognise that there will be disappointment at the delay, we sincerely hope that our unwillingness to compromise on quality will act as some compensation.

They also said folks who preordered (though having their orders delayed) will receive items about a week before other retailers and that they are sending them both the corrected and rejected discs (calling it an “instant collector’s item”) so you can see the framing discrepancies for yourself.

Indicator has become one of my absolute favorite labels.

I don't understand, they didn't call their customers idiots even once-- amateurs! Maybe KL Insider can host a webinar for the Indicator team on how it's done

I considered my upside-down cover of the book included in the Six Gothic Tales boxset an "instant colllector item" so this made me laugh more than it should have.
Still, this is indeed exactly the kind of longet explanation everybody is likely to be OK with.
