Based on past experience with them I'd say you have one or more titles which are excluded from the sale for one reason or another. The only way I've found to determine which it may be is to remove them one at a time and see if the discount changes.

It is also off retail price not web price. You have to look for the msrp on the site.

I was all ready to buy a couple of horror BDs from the VCI sale but jeez, do a little reading about the quality control and it will scare you away quickly.

What the Peeper Saw is definitely one of the better ones. I think that they improved White Zombie since the original reviews. The reviews on amazon seem to indicate it is better now than the Kino one.

It is free shipping at 25 dollars. They changed it a few weeks ago but forgot to change the site wording.

Sweet!

Ordered 5 titles from VCI. First time buying from them.

Screen Archives doesn't have anything I REALLY want.

didn't apply at $25, at $43.xx got hit with S/H although media mail was a reasonable $3.50. Only after cart > $50, did free S/H kick in

When you do a "shipping quote" in the cart it'll show "Free shipping at $50 - $00" once you hit $25 worth of product after any coupon is subtracted (it does not include the $1.50 handling fee - that's always extra and doesn't count towards the free ship total). Select that option in spite of not having $50 total.

i got carry on collection V1 (8 films), White Zombie (BD) and Leon Error shorts for $34 shipped. Not too bad, considering the carry on collection had a list of $40 by itself.

I was interested in it but everything I read that it was purported to be uncut but is indeed cut and missing an important scene or two.

Was also interested in Horror Hotel AKA City Of The Dead but everyone seems to say it is an upscaled DVD transfer and not true HD.

Was considering Peeper, Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things and The Night Visitor. Any opinions on these for those who may have them?'

I am definitely going to get The Giant Spider Invasion but it is cheaper at Amazon and includes the same extras even though VCI's site says that it is exclusive.

DVD Drive-in says otherwise:
The longer British version is once again brought to us by VCI, this time as a brand new HD presentation on Blu-ray. The 1080p transfer delivers the film in its original 1.66:1 aspect ratio with excellent detail throughout. Contrast and grayscale levels are generally good, if a tad too bright in spots, and black levels, though properly solid, tend to display artifacting and other video noise. Grain is minimal in favor of some apparent digital noise reduction, but thankfully the image is not too waxy. The film elements used for the transfer are in impeccable shape, so any fleeting cases of dirt and debris only help to give it more character. The English LPCM 2.0 audio track is quite good; dialogue is crisp and the music score has the right amount of haunting atmosphere. Optional English SDH subtitles are included.
I tend to trust their reviews I own the VCI DVD release and feel it's quite good, otherwise I'd be looking to upgrade.

Re: 20% Off Code Red/Scorpion Releasing @ Screen Archives & 60% Off VCI Sale

Sale extended until Monday. The City of the Dead Blu-ray is still out of stock.



Apparently we had a few glitches in the LABOR60 coupon and some customers couldn't place orders. We believe the coupon is now fixed, so we decided to extend the sale until next Monday, 11:59pm. If you tried to use the coupon this past week and had problems, please try again. And remember, if you continue to have problems, you can always go the old fashioned route and call our toll-free customer service number 1-800-331-4077 Monday - Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm. We will happily take your order and apply the discount.

VCI doesn't send any shipping emails or tracking. It just shows up 7 to 10 days later.

Interesting. My first order with them, so am not learned enough of how it works with them. Thanks for the update

EDIT: And just as 'g' said, order was delivered up today 9/14 (12 days after order placement) sans any prior email notification of shipping. More discs to stash away

Got my movies from VCI yesterday (the 15th) :-) Placed my order on the 3rd... so it took about 11/12 days.
