Re: Scream Factory 5-Year 50% Off Sale

I pretty much have all the Scream Factory titles I want. Might order Black Christmas and The Return of the Living Dead though.

The Velvet Vampire $13.50
Up From The Depths $13.50
Time Walker $13.50
Message From Space $13.50
Ghosthouse / Witchery $12.49

Too bad the Deathstalker two-fer didn't stick around long enough for this sale.

Also got Dreamscape (w/ slip) at Amazon for $14.99.

Re: Scream Factory 5-Year 50% Off Sale

I compiled a list of about half a dozen titles but realized that I'd be better off just waiting. There'll be future opportunities at perhaps even lower prices. Most of the titles I wanted like "Serial Mom" and "Death Becomes Her" are simply more expensive than I am willing to pay to own them. I picked up "Willard" via Deep Discount and it was at just about the same price. These prices create no sense of urgency... I'll wait.

What is shipping like? All I'm interested in is Return of the Living Dead.

$5.99 for orders up to $50.00.
$6.99 for orders $50.01- $80.00.

I have read on another forum that they're offering free shipping for orders over $60.00 for this sale, though.

Mine was over $60 (well over, actually) and shipped free. No tax, either.

We may disagree elsewhere, but I'm 110% in agreement with you on this.

Navigating that site reminds me of a first-grade kid just learning how to create a website.

I may buy a few CE's, though. But it will take a while.

Re: Scream Factory 5-Year 50% Off Sale

Second and final order:

The Serpent And The Rainbow $17.47
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 $17.47
Metalstorm: The Destruction Of Jared-Syn $17.47
I Bury The Living $14.00
The Screaming Skull $14.00
Invasion Of The Bee Girls $14.00

That clears out everything I've ever wanted from Scream outside of a couple of pre-orders. Now if they'd do this with the Shout and Shout Selects stuff, I could clean up from those catalogs too.

Had no idea the over $60 Free Shipping was just for this sale (Never ordered from Shout/Scream directly). Hearing that makes me feel better about placing the order I did.

Forgot that Scream just released Willard. Think I'll grab that. Not sure if Ben is worth getting too.

Re: Scream Factory 5-Year 50% Off Sale

I don't know if anybody's interested or not, but while I was at my local Walmart tonight, I noticed they had the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack of Ben for $12.96. Willard was nowhere in sight, however, and Ben is over $20 at Walmart.com. So, YMMV.

Re: Scream Factory 5-Year 50% Off Sale

Got everything but Black Christmas today.

Return Of The Living Dead and Exorcist III came with their slipcovers, in case anyone was curious about that aspect.

I can confirm Invasion of the Body Snatchers also came with its slipcover (as did my Exorcist III).

Anyone want it? I usually just recycle them. That's blasphemy to some, I know, but I don't really understand the point of a cardboard sleeve with exactly the same artwork as the case it's covering.

Actually that's one thing that's nice about the Scream reversible covers, I always have the artwork be the original so it IS different than the new artwork on the slipcover.

That's a fair point about the Scream Factory titles. Hadn't thought of that!

Yup. That's what I like about them too.

Re: Scream Factory 5-Year 50% Off Sale

I noticed Amazon has dropped or kept prices pretty low on many Scream/Shout titles. I wonder if that means we might be seeing more official sales going forward.

Re: Scream Factory 5-Year 50% Off Sale

Bit late for this, but I picked up my last Shout parcels in the U.S. today and for what it's worth (perhaps on future orders or sales), The Thing, Serpent and The Rainbow, Robocop 2 and Black Christmas all came with slipcovers. Not surprised about the last three, but I'd have thought the slips for The Thing would've run out by now.
