No one is doing a DDOS attack at Severin. Maybe Bill from Code Red, but I'm pretty sure he's still rocking a beige computer. They have a poorly done website,

Just fess up and admit you weren't as ready as you thought you would me. Hell, Vinegar Syndrome always jokes about it in their newsletters leading up to their big sales.

It cracks me up that VinSyn is basically 3 guys and a van pumping out blurays but even they managed to not gently caress up their sale in the way severin continues to do.

I remember VinSyn had issues with one or two of their first big sales, but actually fixed the issues. Their last sale had 0 issues lol.

Also I agree with sentiment about 600 copies of X Film. It sucks to have that kind of scarcity for almost no reason. I assume contractual but come on how many of these movies would get releases/remasters these days without the niche dealers? I guess it pits the companies against each other for bidding on the rights but it shits on the consumers..... omg I just remembered capitalism sucks.

I'm guessing copies will still be available there's no way they managed to sell all of them. It took me like 30-45 minutes just to get it into my cart lol.


If that mallrats run isn't a limited stock I'll probably pick it up when an arrow sale covers it. I loved mallrats growing up so itd mostly be for nostalgia. I had secret crush on Jason Lee growing up.

Mallrats holds a special place in my heart. Saw it on TV w a buddy. Iíve owned it on DVD and BD and will absolutely side-grade to an Arrow set for it. Itís just stupid fun, and idk, it scratches the itch for Kevin Smith movies that occasionally comes up.

Still need to grab Clerks on BD.

If you want the TV cut, you might want to preorder. A lot of Arrow releases have a limited run for the two disc editions and then cut the second disc in a second pressing.

Goddamn I probably wasn't gonna pick anything up in the sale, but this is a catastrophe. I did kind of want to check out Blood on Satan's Claw based solely on the fact that The Cramps name-check it in a song.

I understand limited pressings for colored vinyl, slipcases, deluxe editions with collectible chalk, but straight up ď2000 copies and thatís itĒ is dumb. I bought so much poo poo I didnít really want just because I knew I wouldnít get it later. They played me like a drat fiddle.

Well there's also, like, the issue of "who's going to even buy this?" with some of their releases. I'm an idiot who hates money and loves awful, bottom-of-the-trash-bin B-movies so I had to own the Al Adamson collection, but I don't really think that many people would want it if it weren't a limited release. Why make more than 2000 if only like 2050 people want it?

I really don't know anything about pressing blu rays, but isn't it cheaper to buy huge bulk orders at once than to order a handful whenever there's demand? If they pressed 2000 more they'd have over half of that just sitting in their warehouse losing them money.

that's true, I guess I don't know what the threshold is for Cloudflare's protection to trigger or if the system can tell the difference between an actual attack or a bunch of people smashing F5 for an hour straight.

Yeah slip cases/lenticular covers and poo poo are whatever. I don't mind missing those for most movies. I think VinSyn does a better job communicating than Severin though. Like Fulci for Fake says "limited to 600" but apparently that's only the lenticular cover version and non limited run is planned for later, which I only found out from twitter.

I have to admit that I have a lot of weird Twilight Time stuff because there was just enough novelty to the idea of a commentary track from the porpoise trainer/Brooke Shields boob double on Blue Lagoon or a Eurythmics score-only track for 1984.

I watched my copy the other night and boy howdy does it loving suck. It would almost be endearing if it didn't feel so loving lazy. That little puppet alien though

Also, I managed to grab a copy of The Beast Must Die in my order last night, so if I watch it and hate it I'll gladly sell it to anyone here at cost. Ultra limited editions are the absolute worst.

I mean, to me it evokes that Rose McGowan image from Planet Terror so I can almost give it a pass. But I'm not about to go around wearing a t-shirt or slapping a bumper sticker on my truck that looks like it's promoting a strip club.

Although on that note, Severin's logo kind of looks like that too.

Vinegar Syndrome's logo looks like clip art and I hope they change it some day.

No idea who that's supposed to be on the Severin logo. That's kind of my issue with Severin over all though. They're releasing stickers during this sale and they've been posting them on their Facebook page while saying like, "We HAD to do it..." And everyone in the comments is like, "Oh ho hoooo! A delicious treat for fans of THAT movie..." Like, just loving say what it's from and stop trying to be an elitist.
