How can this be considered a "deal" ...it certainly doesn't belong in a "Bargains" thread...I mean, seriously? And they did the same exact thing last year when all titles were available at these a-hem, "discounted" prices at the end of the promotion. It's amazing how easily some people can be deceived. Best Buy currently has "Manhunter," "Return of the Living Dead," and "The Thing" at $17.99.

They are on sale from what they normally cost and buying direct usually is more expensive than a big box retailer like Best Buy or wherever. It's not as though the prices of those titles is what Best Buy normally charges.

They aren't exactly "bargain" prices, but they are about 45-50% off MSRP and about $7-8 cheaper than Shout's usual prices of newly released titles at $24.99 a piece.

A few of the titles are cheaper than Amazon like Prince of Darkness, Slumber Party Massacre, and Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

Re: Shout Factory ScreamShocktober sale is back!

The Best Buy price is actually $17.99 but still far more than I am willing to pay...I can wait. It'll be months before I get around to watching them anyway. I haven't paid more than $14.99 for any Scream Factory title. You just need to be patient because they are competing with thousands of the same previously-released MGM/Fox versions. It's gonna take awhile to move inventory because most don't need "the very best version." You can grab "Mad Max," and "Escape From New York," with slipcovers for around $11.99....and I've seen 'em used for as iittle as $9.99.

Re: Shout Factory ScreamShocktober sale is back!

I wouldn't mind getting Return of the Living Dead but can't find something I don't have to pair with it to get free shipping so it's not really worth it. The problem for me is a lot of the Scream Factory stuff I really want I own. There are a few I'd get but would rather wait and pay less for them. I think the sale they did earlier in the year (I think maybe at the start of summer) was better.

Manhunter is available in the same collection series.

If you really want it and can't find anything else, the easiest thing to pair for FS is a BBY Gift Card

Pretty much all of the 46 titles were/are cheaper here than at Amazon or Best Buy, a few were beaten by maybe $1. Not sure what your definition of "deal" is, but I found a bunch.

Yeah I did consider Manhunter. I haven't seen it so it would be a blind buy for me but I know it's supposed to be good. I wish my town had a Best Buy and I'd probably just go there or shop there more in general.

Generally, their deals were better in the past, -at least a dollar or two cheaper than they are this time. However, the last time they brought all the prices back at the end of the sale, they were a dollar more expensive than they were in the first round, -this time they kept them at the price they were offered at a few days ago. They are deals for the moment, but of the titles I already own, I got them at better prices than they're offering.

Re: Shout Factory ScreamShocktober sale is back!

The Best Buy option would be awesome, but The Thing is already in store pick up only and no store even remotely close to me has a copy. Would be great if Amazon was to price match. Would love to get ROTLD and The Thing.

From checking there is a big stock issue with yet another new release item. Virtually nobody seems to have stock of this release. Everybody seems OOS, backordered weeks, or instore only (Bullmoose and BBY) but no instore stock

Re: Shout Factory ScreamShocktober sale is back!

I don't think Shout Factory is really set up to process a ton of orders in a timely manner, so they don't price things at gangbuster levels.

I think they mostly run this October sale to raise awareness for their releases on discussion sites. I wouldn't know half of what they've issued without hearing about this sale.

Re: Shout Factory ScreamShocktober sale is back!

And it's back once again folks...

https://www.shoutfactory.com/shockto...fcfe7-89367417


Not much here...but I will say that if somebody buys the Fog steelbook+lithograph and doesn't want the lithograph, please let me know...just don't bury it in your closet. I'll buy it off of you for a fair price (or trade multiple blu-rays from my list, either way). That goes for those who might have already bought it too. I framed the EFNY one, and this one would look really good next to it. (Or probably below it, but you get the hint). I just don't need the steelbook, that's all.

Slither, too, is $14 at Best Buy. Only one I'm interested in that I don't have.
