    The Blob (1988)
    The Believers (1987)
    Audrey Rose (1977)

    All three of these are coming to blu-ray on October 14th from Twilight Time.

    Price $29.95. Limited to 3,000 each.

    They will also be releasing Man Hunt (1941) and Under Fire (1983) on the same day.

    We all knew The Blob was coming, and they hinted at Audrey Rose or Burnt Offerings, but I don't recall The Believers being announced before.

    Let the controversy begin...

    Oops, I goofed in the original post. Supposedly the count on The Blob has been upped from 3,000 copies to 5,000 copies.

    The Blob and The Believers are definitely purchases for me. I might skip Audrey Rose though. Haven't seen it in years, but I remember it being a bit of a snoozer. I kind of want Under Fire though, so I'll probably still be dropping $90 regardless. :(

    Let's all please remind each other (here on this thread) the minute the Blob officially goes on sale for pre order. Don't want to miss out on this one. :)

    Should be Wednesday, September 24th at 4PM EST, if their pre-order trend continues.

    Even at that number, probably a quick sell out.

    I actually have reminders set in my work calendar to check.

    Now if only I'd done that 3 years ago when they did a Blu release of Mysterious Island. Didn't even realize that one had come out until it was long gone and at obscene prices on the secondary market.

    Haha, I'm actually a little annoyed they bumped THE BLOB up to 5K after all the reasoning they always give behind their 3000 disc model. Sell-outs.

    I can't wait till Fright Night is reprinted on blu-ray. Not because I want it, but just so I can see these assholes stop asking $300 for the damn thing.

    Is The Believers a well-regarded film? I thought it was kind of lousy.

    I'm surprised they're doing this. I like what La-La Land Records does with certain soundtracks. If they sell out of a title quickly and there is still a high demand, they repress another few thousand, but it'll be short a couple of tracks.

    This kind of not-cute Blu-Ray extravagantism is why I will NEVER buy into the format.

    Ever.


    I just have the old HBO VHS and haven't seen it since 2000- which is now finally starting to feel like A Long Time ago. It lacks the spook factor. But it's an okay conspiracy flick, if that's what you're into.

    I know - they insisted it could not be done! Their model was solid! But now they can change the number of units? I bet they still can't lower the price with the increased units because I'm sure that doesn't fit their model.

    I can actually see them raising the price on this in order to cover the extra production cost. $40 shipped? It wouldn't surprise me.

    5000 units should be a little cheaper to mass produce than 3000. So at the end of the day they'll make much more money even at $29.95 than with 3000 units.

    May partially explain the delay as well; they may have renegotiated that title seeing all the interest its drummed up. May not.
