    For those who live in the U.K.  - Second Sight will ship direct from their shop. However, if you're looking to import the title to the U.S. (like me), you'll have to go through a third-party retailer. So far I've only seen Zavvi have it up for pre-order and we've linked to the various sets in each listing. We don't know if DiabolikDVD or anyone else will have it up for sale but keep your eyes and ears out. This one has been a long time coming and it's one of my favorites- not because I'm a Romero junkie either! I've always felt the Vampire genre was a little stale in the crypt and this was one of the first entries that really turned the horror creature sub-genre on its head. Ever since my ancient Anchor Bay DVD was stolen from me I've been hoping a great new set would come along, and here it is! 

    Get those pre-orders in!
