The Best $5 Horror Multi-Pack at Wal Mart Thus Far...

.
Just picked up this dirt cheap Universal Studios horror DVD set during one of my many ritualistic runs to Wal Mart. You can't beat Tobe Hooper's The Funhouse, Phantasm II, The Serpent and the Rainbow, and Sssssss for five bucks in-store. The set is comprised of two dual-layer discs with two features per disc. Since Universal aren't a bunch of money hungry bastards like Echo Bridge's disasters, the result of fitting two flicks per disc is indistinguishable between their prior standalone releases. Progressive anamorphic widescreen transfers with no signs of compression issues. The theatrical trailers have been dropped and the Dolby 2.0 tracks have remained, but hey, it's only one Lincoln note. In contrast, I walked into Sam's Club and found a weak two feature Universal western movie set, Into the Badlands and Dead Man's Revenge, for $10. Or you could instead pick up Echo Bridge's The Prophecy trilogy crushed onto one disc for $13. So swallow your pride and beat your feet to Wal Mart...

Not bad at all. I picked up another decent 4-pack from WalMart for $5 last year: My Best Friend Is a Vampire/Repossessed/Slaughter High/Silent Night, Deadly Night 3.

This is also available at Best Buy - for those Wally World haters - for the same price.

Sounds like one to pick up, although if I remember correctly, their standalone disc of PHANTASM II was dual-layer itself.

Snagged this one as well. Hope they put out more quality ones like this!
