Yeah, thanks. I saw that earlier on their site but didn't pay much attention to it. Looks like the U.K. DVD is the best subtitled version available.

Thank's for the updates arsaib4, good releases but I can only hope that Arrow start putting a little effort into their releases.

Cache/Hidden finally gets its dvd release next Monday and is definitely available to rent, I just hope it lives up to expectations.

Cheers Trev.

I'm looking forward to your thoughts on Hidden. I also noticed that Tchin's Strayed is being released on DVD in the U.K. (Soda Pictures). Hopefully you'll get a chance to watch it.
