    I got the email confirmation it will arrive in 2 to 3 weeks today. They apparently accepted my recent photo.

    My copy of The Unholy is in the Processing phase over at Bullmoose. This one I'm looking forward to.

    The Unholy was one of the very last VHS tapes I rented from a local video store a few years ago, and I have to admit that it didn't leave much of an impression other than the ones from the couch cushions as I struggled to stay awake.

    Got my Wishmaster replacement disc today. The back & forth emails were a pain, but at least it was very fast turnaround time.

    Yeah, they made good in the end. I also received my replacement disc today. Dam that was fast.

    Heads up if you purchase from Bullmoose. Some copies of The Unholy are being shipped without the slipcover. I didn't get one. There goes my Vestron uniformity :mad:

    Send it back and get it elsewhere or ask for a partial refund if possible and boot it off onto ebay. That does suck though.

    That is apparently Lionsgate's fault, and probably not Bullmoose. Some first pressings of previous Vestron titles were also sent out from Lionsgate to retailers without Slipcovers, but Lionsgate did send out replacements to those who contacted them about it.

    Returning a blu ray just because it didnt have a slip cover (which is never a guarantee) is a really shitty thing to do to the people at Bull Moose. It isn't a product defect, it's being anal.

    I don't see the big deal if it's still sealed and new. Don't know anything about Bull Moose but I don't see why the customer can't be happy with their purchase, even if they are being anal...

    Nothing wrong with it, I guess. I just hate slip covers. They're a stupid waste of paper. Every time I get one I allow my cats to piss all over it.

    Some do look nicer than others and can compliment a package quite well but I can't say I go crazy over them or anything.

    While I personally like getting slip covers it won't stop me from purchasing a movie. With that being said if the slip is that important contact the seller prior to purchase to verify if it will be included. I've done this on Ebay many times.

    Call or write to Bullmoose to ask why no slip cover. They seem like pretty good guys over there. They may have a good answer or solution.

    Got mine yesterday also only a couple days after sending the e-mail :) Kind of a pain sending a picture and everything but happy to have the replacement. Thanks to Kat for the heads up on this one.

    Actually, it is a little curious. I just came from Bull Moose and every copy of The Unholy has a slip cover. There doesn't really seem like there's a legit excuse for why it is missing.
