Exactly. If the sale isn't based off the prices on the site now then that's not 50% off i dont care how anybody words it or tries to justify it.

Do you guys even know how sales work? It's always off MSRP price. This goes for any store and any products that go on "sale".

It could be a lot worse. Just look at Scream Factory's "sales".

I doubt they include other labels, but hope they do...

I think the only way to get free shipping for the sale is to order the May package before the sale and their will be an option to have everything ship together. That's my understanding at least.

Yeah, this sale as well as MANY other labels sales go off the MSRP. The slipcover versions are $35 and the non I think are $33. Buying the slip version, if available, is a great deal as they have the best slips in the business. Quality swag for an extra buck!! If you don't care about the slip, then you are paying $16.50, which is not a bad deal either.

Many of VS titles are worldwide exclusives of rarely seen old films. The 1983 Canadian indie flick "Disconnected" is a low-budget version of "Repulsion," about a disturbed woman's hallucinations. "The Lost Films of Herschell Gordon Lewis" contains 3 films not found in the many other Blu-ray sets of Lewis' films. "Malibu High" (1979) is an fun exploitation film about a schoolgirl sleeping her way through school and work. Two of the worst films I've ever bought (out of curiosity) are "Blood Mania (1970) & Point of Terror (1971)," low-budget thrillers made in an era when people had few entertainment options outside of TV; Blu-ray.com gave what seems to be a glowing review, however. "Taboo" (1980) is a notorious hardcore porn film about incest. VS discs don't seem to go OOP easily. The Herschell Gordon Lewis disc above came out way back in 2013. I imagine that is because no other company wants to release these titles and therefore won't fight for the rights.

When I bought many of these during the 2017 Black Friday sale, the prices were 50% off of the selling price, not 50% off SRP. E.g. I bought Malibu High at $11.99, which was half off of $22.99 the selling price (still current), not the $32.98 SRP. But maybe this sale is different.

VS does sell some titles for more than 50% when they are slow movers. I got a few for $10 like Dracula's Great Love and Hobgoblins.

Went through a few of my orders over the years, and this is the way they've been falling out:

NOVEMBER 2015-
THE TELEPHONE BOOK [BD/DVD COMBO] $12.49
THE DOLL SQUAD + MISSION: KILLFAST [BLU-RAY ONLY]$12.49
NIGHT TRAIN TO TERROR [BD/DVD COMBO]$12.49
SUGAR COOKIES [BLU-RAY/DVD]$12.49
GRADUATION DAY [BD/DVD COMBO]$12.49

MARCH 2018-
Taboo [Blu-ray/DVD Combo]$14.99
China and Silk [Blu-ray/DVD Combo]$14.99
Limited Edition: Hellbent [Blu-ray/DVD Combo]$14.99
Limited Edition: Horror House on Highway 5 [Blu-ray/DVD Combo]$14.99

The adult titles are currently $30, so these prices look current. Yes, DaveyJoe I'm also a fan of Horror House on HW5. Doesn't look like they can give that one away.

Twelve dollars and change sounds a heckuva lot better than $16.49.

I seem to remember that most of those 2015 titles had been around for some time. Bsend alluded to prices being over 50% for some of the slower selling titles. $12 seemed like a sweet spot at the time, but I've since gone with the yearly package. I can easily unload most of the duds, but I've pretty much kept everything. I would spend $20 for The Telephone Book for all that craziness.

Last time I shopped at their store in person (last BF) the used films not put out by VS with slips were much higher priced. Gothic for example was $8 higher for the slipped version. The previous times I'd shopped there this was not the case.

This isn't always true. When DeepDiscount advertises 15% off sales we assume that is 15% off of their already discounted prices. Either way far too many direct label sales are a joke. IMHO the direct label on sale should always be cheaper than a middleman selling.

Arguably though, a company like Deep Discount may be able to afford more leeway in their pricing, due to sheer volume of sales overall, sitewide. You could possibly even call it something remotely approaching a loss-leader; a promotional cost to attract a bit of loyalty to the business.

This is true for VS.

Your looking at around $15 a pop. Solid.

Yeah, sites like Deep Discount are not comparable at all imo.. They're much more comparable to a mass retailer then a small indie label..That's also why Deep Discounts coupon is only 15%.. 50% off is not something any seller WANTS to do but they HAVE to get rid of some of the old stock to make room for the new while also hopefully getting new loyal customers along the way.

Like others have said though, there are usually some things marked down more then the 50% from the last couple years I checked it out. At the end of the day this sale is significantly better then much of the other indie label sales so I usually try and grab at least a couple.

I've got it in my cart. I've never seen it, but from what I've heard, I think it'll be up my alley.

I haven't watched all my VS titles but I am eternally grateful to them for an extremely nice disc of Psychos in Love, a real favorite from the VHS rental days of the '80s. My horror-watching buddy and I watched it a zillion times.

I did recently watch Sudden Fury and it was pretty good for what it was. Slaughterhouse was decent but fairly forgettable. I haven't yet gotten around to watching Ice Cream Man or Body Melt.

Much of their product seem to be, as far as I can see, pretty much crap. Rare is the title that's above maybe a 3-4 rating at IMDB. Kind of like 88 Films in the UK.

However, I will say that VS is one of the very few blu-ray companies where you can have confidence that every title they have is the BEST release available for that title. Everything looks and sounds great and is full of bonus features. Even if the movie itself isn't that great, you have to appreciate the care they put into their product. Their catalogs are really good too, and I've had fun watching their trailer collection DVDs. I wish they were blurays instead of DVDs, but what can you do!

Before I completely drank the Kool-Aid, I did a lot of price comparison with DDD. Deep Discount with a 15% coupon always beat the VS price during the 50% off sales. The issue was that there was much less availability of titles at DDD.

While I do like a good deal, I'll never understand this idea of buying from secondary sellers to save small percentages.. I can't afford every title I want but I'd rather pay a bit more to the label's who do good work than save every penny I can.

It's an American movie, filmed in CT. And I don't think she's hallucinating.

I take it that you've just started buying discs then? I've never seen a 50% off the storefront price. Every company, everywhere always does it off of MSRP.
