Crazy. I mean, I get that it's the lenticular slip making all of the difference on those higher prices, and I can't say that I blame the sellers if there are fools out there literally willing to pay over one hundred dollars for a piece of cardboard with plastic glued on it so you can see a nude cartoon lady (in comparison with the 'regular' slipcover editions, which seem to be fetching more reasonable prices on ebay). Getting $160+ for one title would certainly buy a whole bunch of VS titles when they go back online, including INVISIBLE MANIAC with a regular slip. The auction prices for that and BURNING PARADISE don't seem too bad.

I was just referring to the slipcover. Earlier this year they offered a translucent slipcover for something like $5. I bought one because what the hell. They sent out an email explaining how things didnít go as planned and it became a lenticular slipcover for the Invisible Maniac. I donít even own the movie. Maybe Iíll grab it if I decide to keep the slipcover.

Understood (and mentioned in my previous post). I do recall that email about the change as well. Just amazed at what people are essentially paying just to have the lenticular slipcover. The 'regular slip' edition on eBay fetches in the ballpark of what it would sell for if it were available on VS right now, so folks are literally paying $100 or more to get the special slip. Hell, if I'd bought that one, I'd absolutely sell it along with my regular-slip edition, then re-buy the latter when the site goes live. Or wait for the next sale, if possible, and get it without the slip as they don't make a difference to me either way. VS certainly knows what they're doing with this add-on stuff.

People don't understand why the site doesn't have the titles because they aren't reading the banner up top about Partners Only Month, so they think it is no longer available at all.

RE: recent release of ď Amityville HorrorĒÖ one with a slip and one without so do they have different upc codes as some sights donít even mention which version they are selling and prices vary from site to site! Any info or help how to identify slip version greatly appreciated.

There are some retailers that partner with Vinegar Syndrome, such as Orbit DVD, Grindhouse Video, and Diabolik DVD, that do offer versions with slipcovers. They'll always say if it comes with a slipcover since that's such a selling point. Some of them also sell the standard editions without slips.

But in general, especially if you're ordering from larger retailers like Amazon or Best Buy, assume you're not getting a slipcover. Vinegar Syndrome reserves slipcovers for direct sales and for a handful of close partners. As far as I know, the wide retail releases never include slips.

Re: Vinegar Syndrome -- Black Friday Sale

I figure since the year isn't in the thread title, might as well just bump this thread for this year's sale.

I'm in a bit of a financial crunch, and I have to have some plumbing work done, so I'm going light. I just bought
Undeclared War
Death Promise

and used some built up points to knock $20 off. I think like most people who aren't renewing their subscriptions, I just get a few catalog titles from the last couple of years now that they're finally down in price a bit. Repeat in May.

Re: Vinegar Syndrome -- Black Friday Sale

For some reason, the discussion of the sale kinda started over in the HD Talk forum, including some lists of (first!) orders, and this sale was mentioned in the exploitation thread here, but the company and its partners are so big now it doesnít hurt to revive it here.

I had wondered why there was zero talk in here last night, I had to go over to the other forum.

Man I was close to pulling the trigger on the light up sign. Maybe if I could have seen it in person but $145 is too much for sight unseen on that one.




Skipped Severin this year, I am going to just do their box set sale thing (Or Grindhouse) tomorrow

Re: Vinegar Syndrome -- Black Friday Sale

Yeah, nothing for me at Severin either. I literally have everything I ever wanted from them in previous sales, and couldnít put an order together if I wanted to. The myriad bundles never do it for me either.

Re: Vinegar Syndrome -- Black Friday Sale

I canít believe Iím sitting this year out. Iíve grown more selective with my purchases and unless the numbers are getting low, Iím deciding to hold off.
Iím keeping an eye on Invisible Maniac though.

There's plenty of talk in its own dedicated thread:

Re: Vinegar Syndrome -- Black Friday Sale

I only placed 3 single movie orders to get 3 VSMC slips, but with my sub it’ll be a big box again. And they got me for couple more things with the $10 off if you spend $50 more today
