List of Cheap Media Blasters DVDs at F.Y.E./Suncoast (UPDATE #2)

Here's a list of Media Blasters (Shriek Show/Tokyo Shock/etc.) discs that I've either picked up or heard of being only $2.97 or $3.97 at FYE and Suncoast locations. It's still unclear why so many are being liquidated. I'm guessing it's either the studio closing shop or selling through overstock of titles they no longer have a license to distribute (i.e. - Die Screaming Marianne is now Redemption/Kino Lorber). I'm heading out this weekend to hit a few more locations. If you've found any not below, please leave a comment with what you've found! --Update: Added a few more, and I have a hunch all titles under Guilty Pleasures could possibly be found this cheap, see list here over at DVDAficionado.

From what I understand, the company has had some trouble and almost went out of business. From the sound of it, the company is retooling and making a go of it again. I learned this from the Media Blasters website. - Cory
