    I ordered Grizzly earlier today, although they had originally announced on Facebook that the price of the reissue was going to be $19.95:

    So, I guess the fairness of this release flew out the window at some point. o_O

    Slave of the Cannibal God doesn't interest me much, especially at $27

    Back in 2015 when the first Scorpion Blu-ray of Grizzly was released, I seem to remember Walter mentioning (can't remember if it was Blu-ray.com or Facebook) that since it was a going to be a lesser video quality on the disc (it was), that it would have a lower price point to reflect that. I paid $30.00 plus shipping as I'm sure many other people did when this was new. Not the first time we were expecting to pay less for Grizzly and wound up paying more.

    How many did they print? I heard it’s 3,000 but they originally announced 1,500. I’m waiting till Friday (payday lol) I think I’ll be okay till then.

    Isn't Ronin's early price usually lower? Right now it's $29.99 MSRP with a discount to $24.99. I haven't been paying close attention this year but other releases would be like $19.99 for awhile then come back up to $24.99. Like The Church, Giallo in Venice, The Unseen or Human Experiments are $10 lower than MSRP right now. Even Slave of the Cannibal God is a higher percentage off from $34.99 to $26.99.

    There have been very few new releases on Ronin that were $19.99 when they first went live, but they are generally always "discounted" a little off the listed SRP on there.

    Scorpion originally announced the SRP would be $19.95 on the Grizzly re-release.

    Hate to bring it up, but even I was talking about this back in June. I said $18 should be a fair price for all re-issues. I didn't know they stated that on Facebook.

    Seems only right to make good on that promise imho. If Scorpion would honor that price, I think that would go a long way with the customers and for future sales. not to mention the Ronin site. It would put them on another level of respect. (they are very good now, imagine if they issued partial refunds)

    I agree that reissues should be more affordably priced but if people are willing to pay the higher price it only makes sense for the companies to charge it. The price kept me from buying but I'm sure Ronin will still sell plenty of copies at $25.00.

    This announcement makes me insanely happy! (although I doubt anyone else will care)

    Get ready for some early winter chills with Greg Huson’s ski resort slasher SHREDDER!

    Here’s a look at the new custom art created by artist Devon Whitehead which will be a Ronin exclusive.

    The first 1,500 will include a slip sleeve and mini poster of Devon’s art. The director is involved and we will have news on the final specs.

    We’ll post more news here and on the Ronin site in the coming weeks.

    I remember liking the first hour of Shredder, but thinking the ending sucked. Not high priority, but cool cover.

    Yeah, very cool cover. One of the better slips of 2018.

    In case anybody missed out the first time.

    Giallo in Venice is available again at Ronin. With slip and poster.

    "Update (10.01 3:45 PM PT): Back by popular demand, the 2nd pressing of Giallo in Venice has arrived and we can confirm the Limited Edition Slipcover and 9x11 Mini Poster are included. Enjoy. "
