I happened to discover some really cheap MPI/Dark Sky Films DVDs being sold brand new by multiple third party sellers on Amazon & Half.com. Some brand new DVDs I've found between $2-3 (before the $3 shipping):

-Plague Town
-Psychic Killer
-Shiver
-Terror Beneath The Sea
-The Flesh Eaters
-Vengeance
-Without Warning

There's more. Here are the search results for "MPI" from 2 different Amazon sellers:

Anyone know if these older Dark Sky titles are going OOP, or just overstocked?

I imagine with the movie and the new master set MPI will be re-releasing all the older Dark Sky stuff in new packaging (this is a guess only btw), thus leading to the older stuff ending up as OSs.

They have already had the older sets on sale on their website for a while for $24.95.

And now that I went and looked they also have the new individual season sets and favorites collections on there. So definitely looks like any remainders/OS showing up are due to the them being phased out for the new.

No discount on shipping for multiple items from one MP seller?

Not through amazon, some sellers have their own sites though, just google search their user name and you might get lucky.

I believe you must be thinking of DARK SHADOWS, which is a TV serial, not DARK SKY, which is a DVD label. ;)

Some marketplace sellers now offer combined shipping using Amazon's checkout.

No discount on shipping for multiple items from one MP seller? I looked around and one of those MP sellers is also selling them on Half.com & Alibris, which are $3 shipping for the first & $2 for each additional DVD.

Here's Plague Town as a starting point:

http://product.half.ebay.com/Plague-Town-DVD-2009/72000043
http://www.alibris.com/moviesearch?qisbn=0030306815398

I don't think these sites pull up all those titles for "MPI" though, you'd have to search each individual title I think.

I believe you must be thinking of DARK SHADOWS, which is a TV serial, not DARK SKY, which is a DVD label. ;)

Indeed! http://www.darkskyfilms.com/ And if you go to their webstore, you can buy these overstock DVDs for their full retail prices! Only $23 more for Plague Town. ;)

(Does anyone buy directly from labels like Dark Sky or Synapse that charge full MSRP?)

These have also been at Half Price Books for $3-5 for a while, fwiw.

Feel free, anyone, to post any other good finds. Or recommendations. I quite enjoy THE FLESH EATERS myself, it's an interesting obscure little viral/biological horror flick, not the cheesy exploitation sort of movie the title would make you think it is.

Another $3 DVD - The Devil's Rain (http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B000GIW964/)! Oh man, it's rare that so many has-been and would-be celebrities have appeared in one 70's Satanic-exploitation film together. William Shatner, Tom Skeritt, Ida Lupino, Ernest Borgnine (as SATAN!), Eddie Albert, Keenan Wynn... oh yeah and a pre-famous Scientologist appears in the blink of an eye. Also w/ a DVD commentary by Robert Fuest, which is amusing in fits and starts, especially his impatience over the endless melting finale.

Please post more discoveries. I realized as I looked at Vengeance that it's not just Dark Sky but some IFC Films with these prices too.

Finally, in researching some of these titles, here's a complete list of DVD Talk's Dark Sky Films reviews: http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/list.php?studioID=345&orderBy=Date&reviewType=All&start=0&NReviews=75

Thanks Deadpan! Couldn't resist that DEVIL'S RAIN for $5.92 shipped.

I did pick up a few of these at Half Price Books in February, including THE FLESH EATERS, but haven't watched any yet so can't recommend them. I too would like to know what other ones from the label are considered good. Some of the double features I was interested in aren't selling for the same relatively cheap prices.

Surely I am, I read too quickly! :gah:
