    Anyone grab a few of Big Emma's Halloween discs?

    Some good stuff, but I'm not sure why Evil of Frankenstein now fetches $40. Big E used to be a place to get deals you couldn't get on E-Bay.

    I did pick up:
    Cannibal Ferox (Grindhouse release)
    Rasputin (Elite)
    Raven/Masque of the Red Death (to complete my Image Poe/Corman/Price collection)

    I did see that when I was browsing their site yesterday, but it seemed they didn't really have many discs as part of that special. Maybe they just sold most of them by the time I got around to looking...

    I actually thought they put some pretty good discs on that sale. A lot of Hammer movies, Italian movies, and many Elite and Roan discs. Like i mentioned though, a lot of the prices were a bit high.

    But some gems in the group are:
    Baron Blood/Lisa and the Devil double feature disc from Elite
    Blade in the Dark and Blood and Black Lace, which are worth purchasing for the cover art alone.
    A couple of your Full Moon movies, Puppet Master 1 and 2
    The "other" Argento documentary, Master of Horror
    Fearless Vampire Killers

    I could have bought a lot more easily, but I'm still dirt poor

    Most of the prices are still too high.

    Fearless Vampire Killers isn't worth $40. No way, no how. You can get it on ebay for less than that. And the Puppet Master movies aren't worth $15 each.

    Anyway, after taking another look, it seems there are more titles now. Maybe I didn't finish loading the page the first time around. All I did was search for 'Halloween', but last time I didn't get nearly as many results. I still didn't find much I was interested in, however.

    I almost bought a few titles - as my LD machine gets a lot of play. Prices were steep, though - but I'll keep an eye on Big Emma's in the near future.
