Texas Chain Saw Massacre (original) - $9.99 Best Buy B&M, reportedly OOP

The original Texas Chain Saw Massacre is currently $9.99 at Best Buy, but only in-store. For whatever reason, on their website it is 24.99 and store pickup is 'Not Available', meaning you can't check online to see if it's available in your store.

Anyway, this BD has reportedly gone OOP, so if you want it, you might want to check sooner rather than later.

Thank you so much for the heads up. Because of you, I was able to buy the last one in stock in Albany

Found a bunch at the El Segundo BB. They're priced at $22.99 but ring up for $9.99. Thanks much!

There are two versions of the cover arent there? I swear my copy at home is shiny and the one I saw at BB today was just plain paper, no fancy one.

Probably a reprint.

If I remember right, Dark Sky did the same with the DVD versions as well. Steelbook ---> Standard Amaray

This is how much I paid for it on release day from Family Video online. Hmm...

I had been planning on getting this but kept putting it off. Thanks OP for bringing it to my attention that it might be OOP. Went to Best Buy and they didn't have anyway...

But FYE did. Marked at $29.99, but rang up $9.99. The regular, non-shiny cover though, but that isn't a big deal. I might check another Best Buy on Friday as well.

Yeah, I'm not sure it was ever available in amaray. I could be wrong, but I don't recall seeing it anywhere.

I've been meaning to pick this up. I guess I'll check Best Buy after work today. Thanks for the heads up, OP!

EDIT: Grabbed the last copy at my local Best Buy. It was marked $9.99 and was the shiny foil cover. Awesome.

Did anyone in LA find this? I've been to the ones around me and haven't seen it.
