Day of the Dead at Target - How many copies?

Hey all.

Anyone picked up Day of the Dead at Target yet? If so, how many copies did they have? I won't be able to goto Target for atleast 5-6 more hours, and was hoping they would put out more then 1 or 2 copies, since they did put the DVD in there ads.

Just picked it up. They had about a dozen copies--two face-outs on a shelf. Good deal!

about 20 copies total at the one by me this morning. generally, they don't stock very many copies of such a minor release title, despite it being advertised in their circular.

Well it's not exactly 'unrated' if you know what I mean.

Off topic, but I went to Wherehouse this morning. They wanted a whopping $27.95 for it. However, I bought it using a credit I've had for over two months. They had one copy at 9:30 this morning, 30 minutes after they opened. They only got in one copy for a brand new DVD. Ugh.

You can go back to BB and get the difference refunded, plus 10% of the difference.

So technically you'd be paying 40 cents less than at Target.

What if Best Buy is out of your way? Is it worth your time and gas...?

I was surprised to see Target carrying this film. What is up with that?

I mean they usually carry the mainstream stuff. Even when they stock a few horror films around Halloween. They again only stock a very select few titles that are of course well known. Be it Elm Street,F13th & of course the new crap.


So this is a nice surprise & i'm glad i didn't pick it up at BB early when i had the chance.

Now if Target would start stocking unrated movies more often,since they carry rated only or nothing at all 99.999% of the time sadly.
