Anyone else pre-order Monster Squad?

This came out Tuesday. Normally they charge and ship a couple days before the release date (or at least on the release date). I still have not been charged for this. I'm starting to get worried as many places online are sold out/backordered (DVD Planet, Deep Discount, and even Amazon). Did they flake out and not even get any of this in stock? If so, this is another strike against pre-ordering from CH as far as I'm concerned.

Yes, my charge for Monster Squad showed up on Tueday, so I'd say mine is on the way...or at least I hope so, but no I'm in no rush. I had preordered Zodiac and Number 23, and received them both on Tuesday (release day) so I'd say they are still doing pretty good.

Okay, I believe it has showed up in my online banking as a pending charge finally. This is a blind buy for me, but the hype around DVD Talk and everywhere else has me really excited for it. I can't wait to see what I've heard called a "poor man's Goonies" or a "Lost Boys/Goonies hybrid"!

it's a great movie but don't let the hype set you up for a big let down. just enjoy it for what it is.

A "poor man's Goonies" isn't exactly setting me up for a huge fall. I own "Ernest Saves Christmas" (guilty pleasure), so it can't be any worse than that.

oh it's as good if not better than goonies in my opinion i just feel that first time viewers might be let down because of all the hype that has been building all these years while fans waited for its release.
