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.
