    This week, Walmart has (I'm rounding up the price amount):

    Hostel 2 ($20 unless your store has it on sale, also two pack with Anatomy)
    Hostel DC ($19)
    Fido ($20)
    The Tripper ($20)
    Saw 3 DC ($20)
    Saw Trilogy ($30)

    I don't recall seeing any other horror sitting out. The halloween dvd promotion shelf hasn't changed yet either. lol

    Yep.
    You can also get the Saw 3 DC for $17.99 with a ticket for Saw 4. I think the Trilogy was $34.99 in BB's ad, but also has movie cash.

    speaking of Saw3 DC, anyone know of the differences from the unrated version?

    Not yet, but I'm sure I won't be able to pass it up with the ticket. I looked at cover scans and it's listed as 7 minutes longer. Can't remember how long the deleted scenes on the unrated ran, but since there's no d.s. listed on the D.C., I'd guess they're added back in.

    DTS 6.1 audio, a new "villains" commentary track, muisc video, and SAW IV preview. Not certain what else is different... Here's what the back cover lists though: http://images.dvdempire.com/gen/movies/1359040bh.jpg

    The video seems to be a tad brighter in the beginning, and the brand new 6.1 dts-es sound is amazing. The beginning is ridiculous in 6.1 surround sound. There are two new major scenes and a new ending, and just a little bit more gore than the unrated single disc version from last year. It is a definite upgrade from the single disc unrated version. Also the commentary with Tobin Bell and Shawnee Smith is amazing.

    I picked up "The Running Man" Special Edition a two disk set for 5 bucks yesterday, I had never seen it, and god damn, its a freak'n awesome 80's action movie if your into that sort of thing. I was total unaware that the Smash TV Nintendo game was based on a movie. Strange extras on the disk as well. A documentary called "Lockdown on Main Street" about how Americans are loosing their rights in a post 9/11 world. Well worth 5 bucks.

    O.K., I can't count.
    The DC is 8 minutes longer than the old unrated if the runtimes on the boxes are correct. I haven't watched the DC yet, but refreshed my memory of the old disc's deleted scenes today. There's 2, one where some dude tries to pick up Amanda in front of an apartment building asking her to come see a friend's band, and one where Amanda and the nurse get into a fight near the end of the film. Both of these run a total of 5 and a half minutes and the fight seems like an extended clip.
    Not sure if I'm watching this or Hostel 2 tonight. Definitly one or the other, followed by Rottweiler!:D (I know Rott will probably border on sucking, but the trailer on the Cujo disc just looked too fucking fun. I've always enjoyed Yuzna's films too so I doubt it will be a complete bust.)

    The fight is in the DC, and another scene, Amanda's nightmare, which makes sense why she did what she did. Also there is a new ending.

    A new ending? Hmmmmmm, now I want to pop it in right away.
    New ending sounds like reason to keep the unrated disc after all. I was tempted to for the different extras anyway, but man my collection is getting out of hand. I need more bookcases and a bigger room to put them in.

    Speaking of new endings, I did check out the "Director's Cut" ending on Hostel. It was cool to see something so completly different, but I like the original ending at least 10X more. I also like how they have the option to watch the unrated version (with all the comms from the old disc) or UR with DC ending (or DC ending on it's own). For Hostel the old disc is now completly worthless as the DC has everything it does and more, then a second disc on top of that.

    thanks for the info on Hostel DC. I may double dip on that when I can find it really cheap (already bought H2, so the best buy deal is out of the question at the moment).

    Cheapest I saw it today was $12.99 at CC, although it's $14.99 stickered price everywhere else (not sure about Wal-Mart). Within a month or 2 it will lose the slipcover and drop to $9.99, then shortly after that will end up on sale for $5.99-7.99 some week at one of the chains. That is if it's like every other dvd that comes out.:)

    Wal-Mart has some Warner "4-Packs" out for $10.96 each. The Horror titles were:

    Wolfen/Body Snatchers/Coma/Bad Moon

    Horror of Dracula/Dracula Has Risen from the Grave/Taste the Blood of Dracula/Dracula A.D. 1972

    Both sets have every film presented in widescreen. Two flipper discs in a standard keepcase. Same disc content as the regular individual disc releases.
