$22.99 is what I paid for Prince of Darkness on amazon after pre-order, but I don't know anything about Comet or Precinct, as I didn't buy those. You're right, though, HMV does seem to have pricing similar to amazon's. Did those two titles ever get that low on amazon? or were they in the low-$20's as well? I wonder if this new Canadian distributor has something to do with the fact that amazon's pre-order prices aren't dropping as far as they used to? Spawningblue seems to know a bit about that. Maybe he could give a bit more details about this new system? But I know that things like Vampire Lovers and Dark Angel were both around $12.99, but The Beast Within was $16.49. The Fog was $19.99, and The Burning was only $17.99, but now things like Body Bags, and the X-Ray/Schizoid double feature, and Prince of Darkness are all $22.99. Maybe it's just a co-incidence? That's why I've stopped trying to grab everything Scream Factory puts out, though. The prices have gone up to the point that it stops being easy to justify on a regular basis. That, and they're releasing more and more films, which makes it harder to keep up (interestingly, though, as they release more and more, the titles they announce have become less appealing, to the point where its only every odd one that I want, rather than every single release when they first started).
