Tempted to blind-buy Thriller (isn't that who Daryl Hannah's character in the Kill Bill movies is based off of? At least the look of her, not the being mute part). I loved Cloak & Dagger growing up as a kid. They used to air it on KCOP Channel 13 here in the 1980's. Fuck, those prices are nuts, though.

I've never purchased a title during a Halfway to black Friday sale. Will Thriller: A Cruel Picture be cheaper during the actual Halfway sale Memorial Day weekend, or cheaper as a pre-order now? It's the only new release I'm interested in.

If the packaging isnít a huge selling point and you donít mind waiting a bit, there should be a standard release down the road (available at other retailers like Amazon and target.com), and some version should be 50% off in November.

Itíll be more expensive in May. This Flash sale is the least itíll be for the next few months.

Thriller wonít be on sale at Halfway to BF. I think itís six months after release until itís added to their sales.
Thereís a lot Iíd get this month, but these prices are getting bonkers. I might just start picking up releases that are dwindling in quantity on their sale weekends. Unless itís a title Iíve been dying to see.

My sentiments exactly.

Slightly cheaper this weekend, like three bucks or something. As someone already mentioned, it will only be reasonably priced starting at the Black Friday sale if you can wait that long. I sure can.

BUT, it will bump you up higher on the shipping priority list. You'll be right after subscribers, but above us riff-raff who just purchase older catalog titles at true 50% off.

Took the plunge and bought Miami Connection and Thriller. Almost got the bundle but couldn't justify the additional $110 for four titles I'm iffy on, two of which are mystery titles.

We are cursed with the same brain. I also wrestled with the idea of getting the entire bundle, but I wound up just ordering Miami Connection and Thriller. Everything else I'm fine waiting for the full reveals, and I'll buy whatever else from this batch I'm interested in (which may wind up being nothing) in November when they're half-off (even if I miss out on the fancier slipcovers, which I don't really care about anyway). I have a feeling the mystery titles are movies I might've been excited about getting a couple of years ago but wouldn't find worth squeezing onto my overstuffed shelves these days.

And I mostly remember Cloak and Dagger more as "that movie that was always, always, always on cable" rather than "that movie I really liked growing up", so I'm okay waiting for a sale or skipping it altogether.

I’d be really pumped if one of those mystery titles was Blood Beach.

Are you sure you don't mean Beastmaster?

Damn those wonderful bastards. Thanks to the email that was just sent out from VS stating that Thriller is half sold out am getting the urge to make the purchase. A regular edition is down the line, but it won’t include the They Call Her One Eye cut. Since that is the only version I’m familiar with, it makes this very enticing.

Same, I was going to hold off until BF but the FOMO got me. (That and the Flesh For Frankenstein coupon they sent out expiring in a few days).

Iím definitely familiar with the old HBO joke and have some memories of watching Beastmaster as a kid, but I more vividly remember Cloak and Dagger being on one of the cable channels every time Iíd turn it on.

Cloak and Dagger was always on television along with WarGames. They seemingly would switch between those two for years.

This sale got me to drop 165 on 4 titles. They really know how to squeeze every drop of milk out with the special packaging, low stock and other stuff.

I just sold two boxes of movies for $200 and $100 credit at a cool video store in Milwaukee. Guess I might as well piss it away.

Kind of the look of the character more than anything. I bought the Synapse (?) special edition DVD of the film years ago, it was ok but not amazing. I ended up selling it for a decent profit once it went out of print, I didn't see it as a film I would be revisiting much .

Being a subscriber now this order will be smaller than usual for BF. Catalog slips, alternate slips and a few titles for me

If you are interested in Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 4k but not interested in the high price for the hard cover, DeepDiscount has it up for pre-order with a release next week at a nice price.

Re: Vinegar Syndrome -- Black Friday Sale

So Iíve never ordered from VS before and I pre-ordered Road House for 44.99 in October because I didnít want to miss out. Seeing as they arenít shipping it yet, was that stupid to do? I donít remember the list price but Iím assuming it wasnít $90 and since theyíre including it in their 1/2 off BF sale, seems like Iím leaving money on the table.

Hopefully ordering earlier will at least mean mine will ship before they fulfill all the BF orders.

Iím pretty sure itís too new and wonít be included in the 50% off part of the sale. Also the wait is normal for the boutique companies, more so Severin but yeah VS too.

No, you did the right thing if it's a movie you really want. And you're right about the shipping too.

Keep in mind (and I love/hate this about VS sales), you can add to the order all weekend and it will all ship together at no extra cost. Since you've never ordered from VS before, this is a great way to back fill your collection with older catalog titles that WILL be 50% off.
