    I accidentally broke one of my criterion blu ray cases. Will criterion sell a replacement case?

    They're a little pricey, but they're available from their website - in multiples of five, I think. I could use a couple of replacement ones, but keep putting it off.

    I'm curious if they'll sell replacement boxes for their digibook titles-- my NIGHT OF THE HUNTER is really beat up.

    You can shoot them an email at mulvaney@criterion.com and ask, but the digi of NIGHT OF THE HUNTER recently was discontinued to, I assume, make way for a regular 2-disc Blu-ray scanavo case (which didn't exist at the time they released NIGHT, which is why it was a dgi.)

    The NIGHT DVD hasn't been discontinued, which is why I'm assuming that it is just to repackage the Blu, but we shall see.

    Right, it may be a case of the Blu sold out its run so now they are going to wait for the DVD run to sell out (keeping the Blu out of print in the meantime) and then do the DF
