The plan is to release at the same time, so hopefully they can make this happen.  
from their Indigogo page 
Will your releases also be released in the UK still?
We will make every attempt to ensure all our new releases appear at the same time in North America as they do in the UK. We still have many titles acquired for the UK only so this will become more standardized as time passes.

As far as content goes, their page sez this -
....any future release intended for both North America and the UK will be exactly the same and coded Region A and B or region free where possible.

Looks great! I love this flick. What is the deal with these steel boxes though. Been seeing them at Wal-Fart. I don't get it other than for protection of the disc?

It's a butt tickler for those with with a nasty case Collective Obessitvous. In short, you pay more $ to get the same disc in an oversize metal box that won;t fit on your DVD/ BD shelf.

I do own one myself though, AB's THE BEYOND, that I got at Best Buy years & years ago after it sold poorly and they discounted it. The Arrow ones for the first two Corman / Poe ones did look beautiful though, had me thinking twice.


I have to think the releasing companies love it, for little additional investment they yield more profit per release with minimal output.

Back when I still cared about having physical media, I used to always purchase those collector tins. I had all the AB ones: The Beyond, Evil Dead, Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue, etc. Now they just sit in a storage tub in my basement.
