Crazy Japanese zombie gore explosion finds its way into Wal Mart's dump bin...

.
Just a heads up, while at a local Wal Mart yesterday perusing the $5 DVD dump bin, I came across Well Go's disc of Yoshihiro Nishimura's Helldriver (2010). I figured it might be a mistake, considering the release isn't even a year old, but soon other copies were seen shuffled in among the pile of bacteria-laded plastic. I haven't seen any of these recent Nikkatsu-backed wild undead gorefests yet, even the famed Tokyo Gore Police, so I figured $5 was worth the risk.

It also appears MGM through TGG Direct have repackaged at least some Vincent Price titles as double-features that were too only five bucks. Along with the disc below (didn't have From a Whisper yet), I spotted The Pit and the Pendulum (1961) and Tales of Terror (1962) together. There's probably others, but judging by the somewhat vague back covers, TGG has made no effort to make the transfers that weren't presented as such on the old discs anamorphically enhanced for widescreen displays.

I'll be on the lookout. Normally when you post things like this there's nothing even remotely similar at my Wal-Marts.

Still thinking about picking that Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 Wedding Album Blu-Ray up though. Tons of those hanging around.

Thanks for the heads up. I found the Price dvd today.

That Price DVD looks spectacular.

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
