    Absolutely agree about the absurd Blu-ray price. I've always wanted to see Erin Moran's bowels explode, but not for $30. I think even $20 for a no-budget affair like this is a bit much. Looks like another for the Netflix queue, if it's available there. If not, I'll check out the used bins a year or so from now.

    True statement. Amazon has the DVDs for these substantially discounted while their Blu-Ray counterparts are barely discounted at all. I don't get it. And seeing as how these were low budget affairs to begin with, I don't know how much they will benefit from HD treatment. As it stands, I will probably pick these up on DVD and upconvert them as I really do want to see them.

    Okay, enough is enough.

    The days when companies could get away with charging early adopters more for blu ray should be over.

    It is now an established format and charging us a 40% premium for a blu is an insult.

    If you're wondering why consumers are aren't flocking to releases like this one it's because ONE MOVIE SHOULD NOT BE $25. Period.
