    It's "discontinued" already! I can't count the number of times I had it in my hand to purchase and now I can't get it unless I want to shell out for an overpriced "rare oop" copy somewhere.

    You would think they would have had it sitting around on store shelves when Death Race was released in theatres this summer.

    Booooooo!

    CRAZY! I'm glad i picked this up when it was released. It's amazing how fast some DVDs go out of print. I see Ebay has them Buy it now for $39.99!
    I've lived by the motto "shoulda bought it when i saw it" for years now. I have been burned too many times in the past.

    Most, if not all, of the Corman films are now OOP that were released though Disney. I noticed they were all pretty much getting low on inventory at most online stores a few months back and picked up the ones I was missing. I'm sure there is a definitive list out their of what was released by Disney. I knew it was an ominous sign when Disney acquired the Corman films. They only released a small percentage of what they picked up, which is a shame.

    Who knows what they are thinking and what their future plans are for the Corman catalog.

    That's odd that most of them are OOP. I also did find it very strange that they never really released many of the Corman titles. Hmm...

    But luckily, I had bought almost all those and the old pre-Disney discs.

    Yeah, me too. Never felt a reason to upgrade. These will come out again, maybe in the case of Death Race with a new version tie-in.
