Horror titles for $4.88 at Wal-Mart

Forgot to post this earlier.

Stopped at my Wal-Mart this morning and they had a new display of $4.88 movies they had just put out, but they were all horror movies. I don't remember many titles, but ones I can recall are:

Leprechaun
Waxwork / Waxwork 2
Wishmaster / Wishmaster 2
Pumpkinhead II
Amityville Horror
titles (forget which ones)


I know there were a LOT more.

Good deal on the Waxwork/Waxwork II considering I paid $7.42 at Deepdiscountdvd.com during their 20% off sale.

I'm definitely going to endure the pain of going into Wal-Mart to check this out.

A lot of them were ones I've never seen or even heard of.

There were none of the big names like Freddy, Jason, Michael......

If Pumpkinhead would show up, the original, I might finally buy it.
But until then I'm waiting for a widescreen version, even if I'm waiting forever...

I hope there's something neat hiding in there though...so far it sounds less than impressive to a horror fan :\

I need to start carrying a notepad with me.

I just know I saw nothing I wanted, and I like a good horror movie.

This sounds like a Lion's Gate/Artisan sale. Those are all titles from them, so the Amityville ones are probably 1992 and whatever else they own.

Hmmm may have to keep an eye open for these. Can you post where in your Wally you found them. I know they are different but it gives me places to look.

I know one Walmart usually has a bunch of their $4.88 DVDs right when you walk in.

Rose Red doesn't sound too bad if I see it.

Mine also had The Blair Witch Project and The Tommyknockers. I almost picked up both but threw them back when I realized they were both full screen.

Oh and mine actually put out a display that was a mix of these movies and the other 4.88 movies that was just released. I believe it was the MGM display with Cyborg etc.

Tommyknockers and Blair Witch are both 1.33:1, which is their original aspect ratio. Tommyknockers was a TV film and has never been, nor should it be, widescreen. Blair Witch was, I believe, 8mm or at least was framed to look that way. It has also never been widescreen, even in theaters. If a theater displayed it that way, they were actually displaying it incorrectly.

Point being: Buy them, if they're both something you'd want to own! Both are fun in their own way.
