Go to Wal Mart + Buy Copious Horror Movies = Keep America Strong!

I joined the People of Wal Mart yesterday and this morning (Mountain Dew Voltage is delicious!) to raid the DVD aisles for $5 horror flix. Isn't Halloween just wonderful in so many ways?

Tales from the Crypt / Vault of Horror - MGM Midnite Movies
Blacula / Scream, Blacula, Scream! - MGM Midnite Movies
Countess Dracula / The Vampire Lovers - MGM Midnite Movies
Gorehouse Greats Collection - 12 Movies/3 discs (DVDTalk Review w/ titles, note some are even in anamorphic widescreen!)
Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II
Hellraiser - 20th Anniversary Edition
Fright Night (more on this one later)
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre - Dark Sky's 2-Disc Ultimate Edition Steelbook

There's quite a few other five buckaroo titles Wally World offers, off the top of my head: Wind Chill, Snoop Dogg's Hood of Horror, Black X-Mas (2007), Ghost Son (directed by Lamberto Bava), J.D.'s Revenge, Day of the Dead (2008), Urban Legend, Blackenstein, Holla, Happy Birthday to Me (Anchor Bay), Haunting of Connecticut (2002), Haunting of Georgia (2002), Halloween 4/Halloween 5 double feature, Mortuary/Salvage/Bloody Mary/Vampire Wars 4-Movie Set, "Gritty Horror Tales" Triple Feature (Hack!/Baby Blues/Harm's Way), Halloween Curse of Myers/H20/Resurrection set ($15), and a Scream 1-3 set ($15) .

The two on top in the picture, I'm Not Scared and Tales of Frankenstein, I snagged from a local music shop and Slimer is a bank found there as well during my WM travels. Please keep in mind the selection varies from location-to-location so you might have to hit several before finding certain titles. Since I don't have any of the ones I listed above, are any worth the price? Anyone pick up any I didn't mention worth throwing in the filthy cart? I might go back tomorrow and pick up the Gritty Horror Tales Triple Feature for Baby Blues.

As for the swap meet, rained out (argh!), but I did find this. Harris Comics Vampirella #1 signed by Louis Small Jr. and Jim Balent #49/1000.

yep, our Wally-World has all those, too... most of 'em are already in my collection... EXCEPT for BLACKENSTEIN, which I would totally buy if I saw it.

Jayson Kennedy said...

That's surprising considering all of the locations I hit had that one.

Holy shit dude... how much did you pay for that Vampirella #1 signed?

Jayson Kennedy said...

It was $12, but came with a certificate and pro card case. I'm not into comics much, but I do collect Vampirella, Evil Ernie, Lady Death, and horror-centric comic oddities. I didn't have Vampirella #1 anyway, so I figured it was a good deal.

That Vampire Lovers is such a GEM! Love that one!

That Vault of HOrror tales from the crypt one...awesome, TAles from the Crypt is better though...but Vault of Horror is not a bad sequel to it, a great double disc and so cheap!

Evil Ernie & Lady Death... awesome. Love the artwork from the Chaos! Comics days. Never collected much Vampirella, but I was hooked on buying up Lady Death comics for awhile. Didn't read them much, but I loved flipping through looking at the art. you dare tread upon the staircase?
