Just got it dropped in my email today.  If you're a Groupon member you should have it too - if you're not, simply sign up and then you can browse for the deal.  This is the one narrated by Oprah Winfrey.

I don't know if it's still active but they had The Amittyville Horror Collection for $27.99 a few days ago.

I don't think it's quite Epic Fail status, but the David Attenborough-narrated version is certainly superior.  The visuals in this are still pretty stunning no matter the narrator.

Oprah Winfrey version is 1080i.  David Attenborough version is 1080p.   That's something to keep in mind as well.

I didn't realize that.  Yes, that does make a difference.  Thanks for the clarification.

Which is great if you mute it.

I thought the Oprah narration was something people just whined about. I was wrong she is smug and condescending in her presentation. Spend the extra money for the David Attenborough version-totally worth it and also as you listen to his English accent you'll feel smarter :0

This.

 

I already had this ordered in my mind when I saw the thread title, but as soon as I read the words "Oprah Winfrey" I lost all desire to buy it.  Better luck next time!

I see a lot of complaints about the video as well as the narration on this title. Most reviews are about a 3/5 bc the video is only 1080i and Oprah's narration is horrible. I would of snagged this for the UK version but I will sadly pass. Thanks for the info though.
