    People were asking (and getting) $90 for a copy when it was only up for pre-order, so these aren't any surprise except maybe that they aren't super-high yet.

    Sold out in a week! Technically it came out 12/13, although many got their pre-orders before that, still impressive. Just makes me wonder how many of the 3000 copies went as extras for web and convention sellers.

    If you didn´t choose the registered option, yes, your´re shit out of luck.

    But be cool and wait a little longer.

    It doesn't surprise me at all. I warned that this was exactly what would happen.

    Pay $30 or $90+? There was well over a month to order one at the cheaper price. Now there's not much of a choice for those who didn't get in on the action...

    Oh well, my DVD will do fine for a while longer.

    I doubt this is the last we'll see of Fright Night on Blu.

    You mean WE warned them this would happen. I'm tempted to post the troll sellers ID's on here. Group them all into a shit list for laughs. I'm sure some would join the board defending themselves.

    Well the people selling on Ebay with an outrageously high starting price are just NUTS! and I hope they don't sell anything LOL, but a couple actually had a starting price under $25 and now are up at $51-$81 respectively, I have no issues with these Sellers, it started below actual cost at SAE and bidders are taking it way up, but the crazy Joker at $250, what an A**Hat!

    I've been watching the prices too. There was one auction that has ended that had Fright Night Blu-Ray, and Fright Night 2 on DVD, and it went for $77.00, which was an excellent price for that auction, but I own Fright Night 2 already on DVD.

    Wow, can't believe this went out of print so fast. But yeah, picked mine up at the PO today (glad I didn't pay for that ridiculous extra shipping). Mine came with a magnet too. Sweet.

    That being said, how come the post office seems to have the absolute worst customer service? I got to the PO at 9 this morning (when it opened), and there were already more than 15 people in line! And of course there was only one person working and there HAD to be at least a couple people in line who wanted to mail about 12 packages that needed to be weighed, scanned and then labeled. I waited 45 mins in line to pick up my package. Fucking ridiculous! I understand it's Christmas and people need to get their stuff mailed, but that's all the MORE reason to have more than just ONE person behind the counter! Total bullshit.

    Gonna play devil's advocate.

    C'mon, let's be honest here. Would you really feel sorry for anyone that paid $250 for the Fright Night blu-ray? I know I wouldn't. I'd say "bravo" to the seller for finding a fool and his money. What's wrong with a bit of capitalism? If the market demands it, then let the suckers pay the high prices. There was a month to pre-order and buy the blu-ray before the feeding frenzy. I have no sympathy for those that sat on the sidelines that knew about it.

    Hate away.

    As long as they weren't misled to thinking that was fair or were mentally challenged to begin with, then a fool and his money need someone to part them. It still seems assholish to start prices that high though, it would be better if they were getting bid up to that, then I certainly wouldn't feel sorry.

    Who I feel most sorry for, is anyone that waited until they had the $35.00 to buy it, finally did, then sold out. Now, the cheapest I have seen is $50.00, but on eBay, that price can go up, if there are not much auctions that don't have a $75.00 or more Buy it Now and/or best offer price.

    So I just got my signed copy in the mail along with my other discs...and the signature for the FN Blu is on the liner notes, not the cover. In addition, it's not numbered or anything. I was kinda saddened by this, as part of the charm of having something signed is being able to display it, not having it hidden inside the case. :(

    You´re right... you have the normal edition, with a limited booklet.

    Well, the release is also limited to 3000...

    There's already a rip out there if you don't want to give the scalpers money.
