    I ortered "Forgotten Gialli", "Beyond Evil" and "Corruption of Chris Miller" (aka Behind the Shutters). I also ordered Psychic Killer by mistake thinking it was a new release. I already have the blu so I'm hoping my cancel request is honored. I just couldn't get into any of the other titles. I so love their straight adult vintage titles but I didn't do research to see if my favorite actors were in them. I got my top 3 at least.

    Loved the last 2 peekarama designs with the ad mat inside covers. Dont know if i said that before but I am wowed by them. It appears they are holding off on that line, but this gay dude's publicly committed to buying anything with Francois Papillon appearing!

    I jumped on The Severed Arm - the bleakness of it really grew om me on the second viewing, and I'm looking forward to seeing it get a proper release. I was back and forth on Dr. Jeckyll's Dungeon of Death and L.A. Wars - curious but not completely sold on either. Any rabid fans out there?

    Ouch... not only is it severed, but now folks are jumpin up n down on it. Poor lil arm. Dr. Jekyll's Dungeon, as I recall seeing it years ago, is completely BATSHIT. Take Help Me, Im Possessed and throw in karate deathmatches. I have a vhs and a Cheezyflicks edition, and may go in for this if it comes up on amazon, but I just know me and I will probably keep watching my scratchy orange print, but it will be good to have a VS version too.

    The problem when you place a huge order (this is my first time going over $100), is you get to a point where you ask "what's another $17.00 when I've already spent $250?"

    I'm really gonna try to restrain myself, but I can see going over $300 this time.

    I placed another tiny order for Corruption, finally, mainly for the easter egg. It doesn't seem likely that Last House on Dead End Street is going to get a "restored" release anytime soon...

    I'm thinking of ordering Good Luck, Miss Wyckoff or The Candy Tangerine Man / Lady Cocoa before the sale ends... but can't seem to decide between the two. o_O GLMW is certainly in the lower stock and likely to sell out faster.

    ^ Good list of recs from Vinegar Syndrome.

    If I were to recommend two lesser known ones that I personally loved, it would be the macabre regional oddity Grave Robbers and Canuxploitation gem Sudden Fury.

    I placed one more small order, also my final one this time around:

    Pretty Peaches Trilogy
    Good Luck, Miss Wyckoff

    There's a few others I want to get at some point, but they are still over 500 in stock and should almost certainly be around for the next sale in the fall.

    I watched the first Pretty Peaches movie a couple of weeks ago. Not a bad porno, but the first three sex scenes are all non-consensual (at least within the context of the film), and that's a real boner-killer for me. I caught Sex World over the weekend, and I liked that a lot more (shut up, not that way). I felt a little Milhouse-y on that, asking "When are they gonna get to Sex World?", as it opens with everyone on the bus for SW, then does a good 30 minutes of flashback sex scenes. It picks up once they arrive though.
    So concludes Paff's Porn Reviews.

    Watched The Corruption of Chris Miller last night, and that's a real gem. Great production values, and even though it's a bit slow for the first hour, it's one of those movies where you know all the little details are gonna be important later, and they are. Definitely worth a rewatch, glad I got it. If you still haven't maxed out your CCs yet, I highly recommend it.

    So far I've purchased:

    Night Train to Terror (slip only)
    Psychic Killer (slip only)
    Play Dead
    Beyond the Door III
    The Candy Snatchers
    Hollywood Horror House
    Deadline

    ...when the website stock snafu was fixed I added:

    The Severed Arm

    Now before the sale ends I'm contemplating pulling the trigger on:

    Beyond Evil
    Amityville: The Cursed Collection
    Berserker
    The Corruption of Chris Miller
    Forgotten Gialli, Vol. I
    A Woman's Torment
    The Mountaintop Motel Massacre

    With the exception of "The Mountaintop Motel Massacre," the rest of the titles would be blind buys. I'm not a hardcore giallo fan, but enjoy them enough. I prefer those that are most like slashers as opposed to krimis and police procedurals...or those with supernatural/occult spins. Also, I'm more interested in the "R" cut of A Woman's Torment as opposed to the hardcore one...does it stand up as a horror flick?... Anyone have any last minute quick reviews before the sale ends? I'll have to whittle that list down by at least half before pulling the trigger...

    I picked up the Angel and Amityville box sets, I'm a cheap date HAHA. I'm glad I waited up to do the sale because the Angel set sold out by morning IIRC. VS must clean up, they could sell people dog shit wrapped in a slipcover and people would buy it. They're slips are top notch and whats up with the mini slipcovers? I wasnt aware that the sale is based off the MSRP so when I saw the price of the items higher I was a little put off but then I was told what the deal was and I'm content on the prices I got and I'm happy with them because I know VS does fantastic work.

    What scares me most is I see people who also did a major "haul" on this sale (here and other forums), and I compare my collection to their list and only find 3 or 4 in common. Meaning I can still do a hefty amount of damage to my CC at the next sale.

    Take Russ' list for example. 18 titles. Of those, only 5 coincide with mine (either I have them already, or bought them this weekend). That's 13 titles he got that I chose not to. But it's 13 more I might be interested in. I was kinda hoping this major purchase I made would back-fill my collection sufficiently, and from now on I'd just choose whichever new releases I want. That might not be the case.

    I went into the sale only planning on getting a couple of titles but kept adding more and more. Since I began subscribing this past year I think I'm pretty well caught up at this point.
