Default When a Stranger Calls/Happy Birthday to Me double feature

When I saw people talking about how this was available at Walmart for $5 I rushed out and picked it up. I know Mill Creek is SLIGHTLY better then blu-ray, and they skip the extras that are a must have with 80s slashers. Sure the DVD is a more well rounded release, but still Ill take the blu. Since HBTM isnt a well known or well liked film even among horror buffs I wasnt expecting much. I just remember watching this at a friends house (Remember Select TV??) when I was 8 and walking the 2 blocks home in the dark. Scared myself silly. It does look pretty good for an older movie. Well worth the money.

I could do without When A Stranger Calls. Liked the sequel better.

Only one of our WMs have these, so I'm trying to pick up any titles I think I may want. The displays always seem to disappear after a couple of weeks or so.
Detective Cameron: I got good news and bad news, girls. The good news is your dates are here.
Sorority Sister: What's the bad news?
Detective Cameron: They're dead.

I hated the original, so boring. The remake was much better.

I want this for Happy Birthday To Me. Does anyone know if its the original version of Happy Birthday To Me or the version with the different music?

if I can find this tomorrow I'll pick it up. I have the Anchor Bay version of Happy Birthday To Me. And I've never seen the original When A Stranger Calls. but for $5 why not.
I have a horror script I wrote called "Truth Or Dare" It's very Scream like. If interested in reading it. PM ME. My Blu rays for sale Thread

From here on out. I'm starting a new rule. After 1 Strike and you onto the ignore list. So everybody watch it.

There are not any extras on the previous Happy Birthday to Me DVD release with the original audio.

What is the deal with having 3 listings for this double feature in the database?

Wait.. What? These are out on blu? Damn, I know where I'm going after work tomorrow. They aren't the best.. Happy birthday to me is a serviceable slasher. When a stranger calls has a great first act but then promptly falls apart. Still worth owning for $5 for any fan of the genre

It appears to be in-store only. It's part of a cardboard display.

I'm surprised this isn't checked prior to new submissions being accepted to the database.

No cardboard display at my Walmart. Just lumped into the $5 trash bin with all sorts of other crap, including dvds. Both transfers look great. And 5.1 DTS-MA on HBTM's original audio.
