Is the HELLRAISER/HELLRAISER II double-feature a Best Buy Exclusive?

While shopping at Best Buy over the holidays, I saw a HELLRAISER and HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II double-feature DVD on the shelves. This was NOT the limited edition tin! It came in a keep case with a cover design like that of the recent SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT release (the poster art for both movies with a diagonal slash down the cover separating them).

However, now that I'm looking to buy the DVD, I can't find this release listed anywhere. No online site carries it. DVD Pricesearch doesn't have a listing for it. Hell, even the huge DVD database at Hometheaterinfo.com doesn't list it.

So, what's up with that? Is Best Buy really the only store that has this double-feature DVD or has someone seen this carried elsewhere?

It's the only place I've found it. I just picked this one up a week ago myself for $17.99. Couldn't beat it! But the cover art (on mine) is not the 2 posters with the slash you mentioned. Just pinhead standing with the box in his hand with the 2 titles.

I've only seen this at Future Shop, which is owned by Best Buy so it looks like it might be an exclusive.

I thought I saw this in a Virgin Megastore, but I could be mistaken. Besides that one store (whatever it was), I've never seen it elsewhere.

I remember seeing this at BB a couple of weeks ago, but I can't remember the cover art for it.

I love the Hellraiser/Hellbound 2-Disc set.

But that's because I love more Hellbound than the original.

That Channard Cenobite ruled.

Anyway, I have only seen it at Best Buy.

Maybe I'm wrong about the cover art...

Anyway, thanks for the input. Looks like I'll have to make the trip to Best Buy again...

It has been at Suncoast, although that was also once owned by Best Buy.

I've only run across this at Best Buy and picked mine up many months ago. Considering the content it's a great pickup for the price and allowed me to dump my Tin for a nice profit.

It was originally released as a Anchor Bay Limited Edition to all stores. Whether Best Buy and co. picked it up as an exclusive, I'm not sure of.

As an aside, I saw Hellbound theatrically before the first film and for some reason that made it much creepier for me. (When it came out on DVD, I had pretty much forgotten both films and watched them in order. Somehow the mystery of not knowing what had happened in the first movie made the second one scarier.)
