    Lots of stuff online too. Thanks for that info, Harry. I knew if I waited long enough, EVIL DEAD blu-ray would be cheap this month.

    Any Canadians see any good deals in Canada yet? I was in Wal Mart the other day and they didn't even have their Halloween deals yet yet. They said this week sometime.

    Sweet - thanks! I'll be grabbing The Collector for sure. Been waiting for the price to drop on that. Hostel as well. Oh man, now Dead Snow, Evil Dead's and Halloween 2 will be hard to pass up too. Might have to grab Frozen too - nice price drop!

    Booooo... The blu-ray of EVIL DEAD is the single-disc feature-only version. Yuck. Pass!

    :lol: So I guess it really was a "Limited Edition" after all.

    I picked up the Hatchet Blu-ray at Dumb Buy earlier. Most of the stuff that's advertised on sale per their website isn't even advertised in the store. So unless you already know about it...

    Now that it's mentioned, I'm 90% sure BB here only had the single disc Evil Dead. The one I almost bought defintily was, I recall thinking the features looked light.
    Did grab Hostel, The Mist and Hatchet for $9.99 each. Passed on Evil Dead mostly cuz I haven't watched either dvd in 5 years and don't want to buy it again. If there's a 2-disc buried in back I'll probably break own and grab it though, such a slut.

    I too feel ripped off that horror DVDs are not on sale at Best Buy. I never imagined it would be more expensive to be stuck in standard definition. :bs:

    Just got back from Best Buy and they didn't have shit as far as standard dvd's go. One of the employees said they'd have some in a couple weeks, but I could tell by talking to him that he really had no clue. Sucks hard!:bs:

    Any news on the amazon Halloween sale? The past few years it was always up on October 1st. So far nothing (expect price-matching the Best Buy sales).

    F Best Buy.

    You can't even get most $hit from their on-line store.They used to be a great genre resource. Now you'd be lucky to find anything even slightly outside of the mainstream. They sure do know how to stock an excess of crap Japanese "horror" though,and endless variations of "100 Horror Classics" for $25.

    Amazon

    I'm pretty sure Amazon started their Halloween sale, cause a bunch of stuff I have saved for later in my shopping cart went way down in price :D

    I checked out a couple of Best Buys near me and it was the one disc movie only Blu of Evil Dead that they were selling for $9.99. What's worse is that the regular price on this was like $22.99. I did grab Dawn of the Dead '78 and the original TCM on Blu-Ray for 9.99 there, though.

    Amazon has Evil Dead on blu-ray for $9.99 now too. What is this about two discs? I only see the one version on Amazon's site. I didn't know there was a two disc set. Frozen is also $9.99. I actually have that on the way from netflix, but that's a good price for a new release.

    yeah the one with the bonus disc of extras is labeled as a limited edition but I don't think any of us thought it would be all that limited. Figured it would be "limited" like the book of the dead edition. Like was mentioned above Amazon does seem to be price matching on many of the horror Blu's at Best Buy. FYI... I was able to score the 2 disc limited edition Blu of Evil Dead at Meijer for 12.99. They had all of their Anchor Bay/Starz Blu's (Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, Evil Dead series, Halloween) for 12.99

    I guess the 2-disc Blu-ray was really a "Limited Edition", as it appeared on the front/back covers.

    It came with the Blu-ray and a Bonus DVD with most of the previous existing special features. It had around 10 featurettes, a stills gallery, the theatrical trailer and TV Spots. It's not simply one of the old DVD's, but was a new compilation of the stuff from the multiple old DVD's.

    Here's what the original front cover & back cover looked like.

    Ah, Ok. Thanks. Had I known that I might of picked it up. It seems silly to make something like that so limited.
