    That's really cheap for this line. I wonder if that's an error.

    Judging by the prestine HD with lionsgate copy of 'the wraith' I found on amazon prime UK that will be along soon.

    Get those Target $12 pre-orders in!

    I got a package of diapers for my two-year-old to get free shipping, and you can save an extra dollar if you select “no rush“ :)

    I grew up on Little Monsters. Pretty sure my Grandfather spent over 100 bucks renting the VHS for me weekend after weekend. But my dvd is good enough for my collection. The cover art is pretty cool though. Wouldn't mind an 11x17 poster of that......

    I don’t care about Little Monsters at all. Diabolik is only charging $13,49 for each separately. I wonder why these are getting such cheap price tags. The Lions Gate factor?

    My guess is no fancy Slipcovers anymore, just cheap eco-cases. Probably reduced bonus features as well.

    There was a post on Facebook from someone who claimed to have worked on extras for Little Monsters. "Extras" is a pretty loose term though and it's from a Facebook comment so I'll take it with a grain of salt until official details are released.

    If Diabolik is right, and they probably are, the MSRP is only $14.99. I'd expect street date to see it for $10.49.

    Former Fangoria Editor-in-Chief Chris Alexander has mentioned on Facebook that he did special features for the upcoming Shivers Blu and shared this pic (apologies, I still haven't figured out an easy way to just attach a pic on a forum):

    How long has it been since we've gotten a new Cronenberg commentary? Considering how great they always are I'm now even more pumped for this release!

    From Michael Felsher on Facebook:

    "So, finally after months and months of not being able to talk about it...the next two entries in the Vestron Video Collector's Series are coming up for release in September. David Cronenberg's debut feature, SHIVERS, and the Fred Savage/Howie Mandel monster-comedy, LITTLE MONSTERS. Both have new artwork (which has already debuted elsewhere online, but are shown below anyway. As to the contents of each disc, I am sure Lionsgate will release the features list soon, but I can tell you we did a lot of extras for each title. These will be full special editions. Thanks to my gang of collaborators on these two titles, and look for more to come!"

    For $100 he could've bought you your own copy :)

    My order of Little Monsters and Shivers arrived from Diabolik today. I was happy to find the slipcovers match perfectly with all the others in the Vestron series (the white covers made me a bit nervous).

    That's good news that they have Slipcovers included. I was also concerned they might even have none since the SRP's were lower of these two.

    Mine should be here from Bull Moose on Monday.

    Watched the new Shivers bluray it looked and sounded fantastic. I had a blast revisiting it then I decided to watch Rabid a personal favorite of my mine.

    Two classics. I just received my Shivers blu-ray yesterday despite already owning the Arrow disc. I really need to rewatch both films again soon.
