I had gotten mine yesterday, though hasn't shipped (still says pending). My order included 2 pre-orders and a few of the halfway sales.

Re: Vinegar Syndrome 'Half Way to Black Friday' 50% Sale

I mean, I see Galt's point; ship my pre-order shit before the big sale, 'cuz I ain't buying anything at the sale anyway and I'd rather not wait an extra two weeks.

Or, they could ship all the pre-orders first, then whatever people get at the sale.

But the problem with that is that if you assume 50% of the pre-order folks are gonna buy stuff from the sale too (and that is a LOW estimate, I'd bet it's way more than that), that's like 5000 double orders to pack and ship a second time, or a total of 15000 packages going out instead of 10000. Pretty easy to guess what they'd do instead.

I didn't know they would add your sale orders to preorders placed months earlier. I thought they only combined other sale orders. Still, it's just the way you preorder something months ahead of time and the release date comes and you're still weeks away from having the movie delivered.

It's just the add to existing order option. As the previous poster indicated, I'm sure they end up packing much fewer boxes this way.

I received my monthly Vinegar Syndrome package yesterday.

Was going to use the $10 off partner coupon but can't combine it for free shipping with my order that hasn't shipped yet :/

Thank you!
I received the pair of titles I pre-ordered earlier today!

I got my copy of Cloak & Dagger and Thriller today. My buddy in NY had gotten a "delivered" status from FEDEX and when he went to retrieve his package there was nothing there. Either it was a lazy FEDEX driver who just entered it as delivered or a porch pirate got it.

Still waiting for mine, though shipped yesterday (no updates since leaving CO however). Was hoping to get them today, check out a few movies over the weekend.

Re: Vinegar Syndrome 'Half Way to Black Friday' 50% Sale

Here is my list of received movies from the pre-order and the sale:
Thriller (4K Limited Set)
Cloak & Dagger (4k Clasp Box - Really cool aesthetics to this one.)
Miami Connection (4k Slip Box)
Ticks (4k with Slip Box)
Death Wish II (4k with Slipcover)
Ebola Syndrome (4k with Slipcover)
Wolfpack (BD Numbered with Slipcover)
Heavy Trip (BD with Slipcover)
Voyage of the Rock Aliens (BD with Slipcover)

Just now watching them and will give my thoughts as we go through them. The only two that I have seen previously are Death Wish II and Cloak & Dagger. DWII was rather recent with a Shout Factory copy, but Cloak & Dagger hasn't been seen by me since around the time it was released. The one I'm expecting the most to let me down is Voyage of the Rock Aliens.

Re: Vinegar Syndrome 'Half Way to Black Friday' 50% Sale

I bought the "Everything!" pre-order with Thriller and Cloak & Dagger in the bunch and it just arrived today. For some reason I thought Death Wish II was going to be included in the bundle but I guess I was wrong. It also included Miami Connection, Voyage Of The Rock Aliens, Scared To Death, Horror High and Stanley,

Say what you want about the movies they release but damn...they know all about presentation. The Cloak & Dagger limited set is a goddamn thing of beauty.

Re: Vinegar Syndrome 'Half Way to Black Friday' 50% Sale

Cloak & Dagger is a cool set and a decent movie, explosion excluded. Miami Connection is more entertaining than it should be despite not having a really clear plot nor an actual script. You can tell that the friends who made this movie gave it everything they had, Voyage of the Rock Aliens was something else, but I wouldn't say I was disappointed. Ebola Syndrome pushes all boundaries of decency. Wolfpack is a decent movie but shows clearly how fascism can take hold and people made to believe that "winning" is what it's all about. I haven't watched Death Wish II, Ticks or Heavy Trip yet.
