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

Just got a twitterfication whatchmacallit about this sale starting this coming Friday. Announcement says "Most releases will be 50% off + more!" That's all I've got so far, so don't shoot the messenger with grumbles about links and whatnot. I'm sure it'll be easy enough to figure out on the day. Oh, and social media haters: you're welcome!

EDIT: just noticed the sales is advertised on the main page of their site, in the rotating banner up top:

Awesome!

I'll definitely pick up a few titles if the price is right.

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

Really hoping both Rudy Ray Moore shows are on sale, but Human Tornado has a street date of May 31, so unless they're including preorders (even by one day) it could be excluded. Not that there aren't plenty of other goodies to pick from.

They did an incredible job with Dolemite. It's a great package of special features and a very fine film transfer.

Really hoping Dolemite is part of the sale.

Looking to pick that up along with Corruption, Nightmare Weekend and (possibly) Demonoid.

Sale's on, but no Dolemite, dammit (well, at least not 50%, anyway). Oh well, plenty of others to grab.

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

I'm not seeing a lot of 50% off titles.

This sale sucks.

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

Actually, I put 27 items in my cart before the sale started just so they'd be there, and only about four were not 50% off, so perhaps it depends on what people already own from their catalog.

Blus for The Bees, Frightmare, Demonoid, Nightmare Weekend, Don't Go In The Woods and Graduation Day are 50% off, among others, and plenty of their DVDs are likewise reduced.

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

Hmmm, I'm not seeing 50% off of "most titles" as they advertised. Also, I was hoping that they would have a sale on their film can shipping like they did last Black Friday ($25 instead of the normal $40) but it doesn't look like it. Oh well, maybe I'll just save up for their Black Friday sale.

They might be adding more as the sale progresses. Which would not be a good idea to do for a sale. Too bad Dolemite isn't half off and a few others.

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

I mostly wanted Dolemite & Nightmare Weekend but the total after shipping is alright. Maybe I'll wait for the actual Black Friday sale?

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

I picked up a few:

Frightmare
The Bees
The Telephone Book
Crypt of the Living Dead LE
Sugar Cookies
Sexworld

86.94 shipped.

Was going to get Graduation Day, but instead opted to go with the 88 Films release since it has the "Scream Queens: Horror Heroines Exposed" documentary.

Thanks, indeed! I don't mind getting both in this case since Vinegar Syndrome's edition has entirely exclusive bonus features (except the trailer) and, somewhat thankfully, drops the low-brow, barely-related Troma supplements that padded the previous DVD.

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

Half Way to Black Friday 50% off Sale returns, Friday May 26 to Monday May 29, 2017, for those so inclined.

VS mentions two new mystery Limited Edition Blu-rays (1,500 and 1,000 units) releasing just for the sale, as well as a mystery 3-disc DVD set (presumably consisting of previous releases, not sure) complete with a "handy reference guide" which appears to be some kind of perfect-bound booklet.

Also, shipping on all domestic (U.S.) orders will be free, and orders to Canada will be $10 flat rate, and international $15 flat rate (with multiple orders to Canada and overseas combined when the sale ends).

Their email blast also mentions low quantities of the following, with alerts being posted on Facebook and Twitter during the sale:

HELLBENT
THE CUT-THROATS
DOUBLE EXPOSURE (Slipcover)
JACK FROST (Lenticular)
UNDERTAKER (Slipcover)

NOTE: can a mod adjust this thread's title to remove the original dates so they won't appear each time this thread is revived?

I probably spend more money with them than any other media company. I always look forward to their sales.

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

As above, Friday May 26 to Monday May 29, 2017. I think they started fairly early last year, so might be worth checking in after midnight tonight if you're up.
