Indicator November Releases

Region Free U.K. Blu-rays

Indicator, a boutique British video label from Powerhouse Films, has announced three upcoming Blu-ray releases for November — the psychic thriller The Eyes of Laura Mars (1978), the Jack Nicholson kinda-werewolf film Wolf (1994), and most excitingly, the box set The Wonderful Worlds of Ray Harryhausen – Volume Two: 1961-1964, which will include Mysterious Island (1961), Jason and the Argonauts (1963), and First Men in the Moon (1964).

Although these are being released in the U.K., all of the titles are listed as Region Free, so they will play in Blu-ray players worldwide.  I included Amazon U.K. links below for pre-ordering.  Usually, Indicator’s titles are eventually available domestically through Amazon, DiabolikDVD and other U.S. retailers.

Below are the details directly from the Indicator website:
