A Tale of Two Sisters (Tartan Region 1 release) $8.88 at Wal-Mart

I don't know if anyone has heard about this film (supposed to be a good Asian Horror/Thriller), but I just picked it up at Wally World this morning for $8.88. (DDD has it for $15.99 ...even Wal-Mart's website has it for $12.74)

It looks as if Wal-Mart is getting a bit more daring on the DVD's that they are stocking. They are starting to carry more anime and asian movies. They had another there, but I forgot the title.

Yeah, I saw this the day before yesterday for the same price, but note, this is the rated version with 1-disc. Still, a pretty good deal!

Mine is the 1 disc, but it is the unrated version. So I guess YMMV on that issue.

Hmm, okay. Maybe it was unrated, but my main point was that it is not the deluxe edition (2-disc). So, basically, the only thing you'd be missing out on are the bonus features (or most of them, anyway). But like you said, YMMV.

My Walmart had bloody dresses and was the unrated edition. However, it was the one disc version.

The 15.99 one on DDD is 2-disc, so that point is moot.

That would be a negative. I wouldn't hold your breath, but it'd be really rad if they started carring more of their titles.

I remember in an old thread, though, that Circuit City apparently carries Koma for $12.something (79, maybe?), although I have yet to spot a copy. They also have the deluxe edition of A Tale of Two Sisters for the same price (according to that same thread).

The CC near my house is still carrying Tale of Two Sisters for the 12.99 price.

CC carries Memento Mori as well, for the same price as Koma, I believe.

Hey, thanks for the tip. I'll keep an eye out. Or both.

Also, I saw ATOTS at another local Walmart today, and it did indeed have the blood on the two dresses, so I'm guessing it was the unrated edition. However, I'm fairly certain that all they carry is the 1-disc version -- still, a good price for a cool flick.

The other movie that I forgot the title to is Premonition. I think it was the same price as well.

I found one in Shelton, CT. after work today.

It is indeed the Unrated version as it clearly marked on the back in the spine at the bottom. The girls on the front are wearing bloody dresses as stated above.

Thanks OP!

I checked a wal-mart in New Hampshire and they did have two sisters for $8.99, but Premonition was $19 something, I even scanned it to double-check. I was bummed.

My Walmart got in some more copies of this, maybe for the Halloween season, still at $8.88. Good deal if you missed it the first time, looks like it's still cheaper than online shops.

I wish they would get in some of the other Tartan asian horror releases for the same sweet, sweet price.

They actually have had some other Tartan Asia Extreme films, but I can't recall which.
When I saw this one, I was excited until I found out it was a non-existent single disc rated version, which drove me nearly mad for a while (they did NOT have bloody dresses).
I ended up getting the 2 disc unrated, which has some pretty awesome features, if, of course, you're into features.
