    It's even harder to catch them on Diabolik than it is on BigCartel.

    I would have rather just ordered from Diabolik, since the shipping is cheaper. Costs $10 to ship those three movies via BigCartel, would have been $6.50 to ship via Diabolik.

    Postage on the bubble mailer says it cost him $4.63.

    Good old Bill is always complaining about ebay scalpers but at the same time he is ripping off his own customers by exorbitantly overcharging on shipping.

    Other then being slower then a snail I have no problem with diabolikdvd myself. If you read my comments more closely you sort of misread. I said he is loosing allot of money when he dumps massive shipments to them. In other words he is loosing money as I am pretty sure diabolikdvd gets a discount. Then crazy Bill rants and raves he isn't making any money. If he doesn't want to lose money he needs to take full responsibility. Instead of dumping his shit on diabolikdvd he should take charge.


    note: misspelling

    I'm probably jinxing myself for future orders but I've never had any problem ordering direct from Bill. Orders usually come within a few days or maybe a week at most. I do wish he'd send email confirmations or something to show he received the order or when he shipped it out. But since he's basically a one-man operation I guess that would probably just slow down his shipping process.

    I've ordered from both Diabolik and Bill and never had an issue.

    He is widening his audience when he uses diabolikdvd. He is not allowed to sell directly outside of the US for many of his releases. Diabolikdvd can. There might also be some diabolikdvd customers that aren't aware of Bill's bigcartel site.

    Not surprising that Bill no longer reads message boards with all of the business advice that is given. I would find it maddening. Walt is truly a saint.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    But after hearing all of the horror stories about ordering directly from Bill, I might just wait for Diabolik to get them back in stock.

    I didn't know they made a blu of this. I have one of the cheapo DVDs and it didn't do much for me. I didn't think it was that popular of a film. Maybe I'll have to revisit it!

    I've never seen the movie. Very much doubt that I will for $25.00 ($5.00 for shipping). Too much money for a blind buy that I may not even like.

    I get apprehensive about ordering from Bill too, but I have to say that the two orders I placed in the past month both arrived in a timely manner.
