Went into Zellers today and just when I'd about given up, I looked to my left and saw THE BIN.

Picked up:

3 Extremes II
The Cavern
King Kong (1933)
Intermedio
Dark Harvest 2
The Nun
Red Riding Hood
Sea Of Fear
Serial Killing 101
Werewolf Hunter
Carnosaur 2

They also had Beyond The Reanimator, Red Rock West, Seed Of Chucky, and a bunch of other crappy DTDVD flicks....I know a lot of the ones I bought are going to be crap movies but I figured for $2.99, it's still cheaper than renting. Plus I got real excited when I found Werewolf Hunter and 3 Extremes II in the bin. Spent Approx. $42

I still to this day wonder how Zellers stays in business.Around here it's all staff and no customers.They don't offer enough to keep people away from Wal mart and the clearout DVDs here are not much.A few Anchor Bay titles but the quanaties are very limited.

I can confirm that the first Carnosaur is there as well. Maskull, was that King Kong the nice Warner special edition? And for $2.99? If so, that's a steal.

Yeah, I don't know how Zellers stays in business - that place is always a ghost town. They're still selling VHS, for Christ's sake.

If it's the same King Kong I saw here, it's the one that came out a few years back before the amazing SE.

I totally agree about Zellers being a ghost town, there's one here in the same area as a big Walmart, Costco, and all the other usual suspects of a shitty suburban shopping district with supermarkets, furniture stores, etc., but there's never anybody there. At the same time, I usually tend to find a lot of cool stuff there. My girlfriend found a REALLY cool Coca-Cola tanktop, shirt and pajama pants there (we're both huge fans of old school Coca-Cola merch so it worked out well) along with a bunch of other really cool shirts. I bought a fog machine there that was $15 (marked down from $26, I'm gonna use it for photoshoots and random flicks I'll shoot down the road), plus I've gotten a TON of really cool DVDs in their sale bins for $2.99 or $4.99.

At the same time, it's hilarious that these places manage to stay in business. I still stop by there every few weeks to check out what's there, but they've gotta be bleeding money consistently as a company.

I thought it was MetMart at last check? Canada's got a ton of crappy department stores.... Saan, Bargain Giant, Biway (that place was hilarious), but the best of all is the Newfoundland-exclusive one called Piper's.

The one I went to was pretty empty as well. Usually is. Of course this time it was pretty early in the morning so that's to be expected. I know the one where I used to live was pretty busy all the time though.

No first Carnosaur at my store unless it sold out. I'm thinking of heading over to another Zellers tomorrow and seeing what they have. So far Zellers is kicking Wal-Mart's ass for Halloween deals this year.

Is it the Carnosaur w/ "Special Edition" in huge letters down the side, even though the edition is not very special at all?

I saw that one at my Zellers too. Also didn't pick it up (the pile was getting a bit too big to carry as it was). Maybe I should check it out. At the least Julie Delpy's in it.

Have they been re-stocking the bins or just letting them sit and empty out?

Yes, that was the one. I've only seen it at one of the three Zellers I went to though, so who knows how many there are.

Just got back from the one on Sparks St. in Ottawa. I was pretty late getting around to this, but I want to check a couple other Zellers this week.

Got lots of goodies (or baddies), including some of the Maple/Lions Gate stuff if it looked interesting and had an 18+ rating.

Carnosaur
Switch Killer
The Mangler 2
Dead Doll
The Stalker
BTK Killer
The Mailman

non-horror:
12 and Holding
The Last Seduction II (yes, I loved this and Joan Severance is amazing)
Picture Claire
Quick

Cost me like $38 bucks. Not too shabby.

I found the bin at a local Zellers the other day.

Carnosaur 2
3 Extremes II
The Brain That Wouldn't Die (Uncut)
Faust: Love of the Damned
Cut
Milo (Haven't seen this one since it first came out in '98 I believe. I remember it being pretty decent.)
Seed of Chucky (Unrated)

And they also had the new Child's Play DVD for $4.99!! So of course I bought that as well.
