Makes no sense to me as it's not like they add any more size or weight to the Bluray. I wonder if some of them get ruined in storage and rather then send a movie with a roughed up slipcover they just toss them and hope you don't notice. If you complain to Amazon they will let you exchange it for you, or I have even heard in some cases offer a few dollars discount.
Yeah, that's fucking stupid.

Our good friend and poster connoisseur wago70 has offered me one of his extras, so it's nice to have family here

I considered doing that for you as well, but knowing me I'd probably regret it 6 months down the line.

I know Barnes and Noble tosses their slipcovers. Not that I shop there anyway because their prices are fucking retarded, but yeah, I really don't get why some retailers toss them in the trash. Makes no sense.

They probably get damaged in shipment...and instead of dealing with some whiney bitch complaining about a 2cm. tear in the slipcover, they just toss it ignorantly ...not knowing some people covet slipcovers like the holy grail.

Definitely a lot of truth to that. I have some slipcovers that are more banged up (received that way on delivery) than I'd prefer, but I'd never bitch about it. For this scenario, I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask if it was just possible to get one sent over and at least they answered me.

Glad to hear! Months ago I had an extra but traded it for some slips I was missing. It would probably cost a ton to get it to you anyway without it getting damaged.

i ordered phantasm II and From Beyond from ImportCDs, and got both slipcovers. My general MO now is to preorder on amazon.ca. so far, everything that should have a slipcover has had one. and none have been damaged. i'd be seriously pissed if i missed out on one.

Awesome news! Hopefully they're newer prints. I imagine they'll get some John Carl Buechler commentary at the very least.

Scream commented on their post:

"For those curious: Technical specs are as follows:

Catacombs: 16x9 1.66
Cellar Dwellar: 4x3 full frame
Contamination 7:1.78:1
Dungeonmaster (aka RAGE WAR): 1.78:1. All all-new transfer that includes a pre-credit dream sequence missing from the Lightning Video VHS."


Now I ask them if Celler Dweller is a new master or from the only good source MGM had.

I'm glad that Scream Factory is releasing Cellar Dweller! :-) I'd like to see Catacombs as well! :-)

I'm not a huge fan of Cellar Dweller but the monster is pretty awesome.

Dungeonmaster and Crawlers are a lot of fun, though and Catacombs looks like fun.

Just recorded Crawlers off of MGM HD recently. I'll just keep that rather than downgrade to DVD.
