$50 for 6 episodes?

C'mon Anchor Bay, you used to be FRIENDS of the horror community. This is just gouging and incitement for people to download the show.

Have these people learned nothing from what happened to the record companies?

If you have no problem spending 25-30 bucks for a movie on blu-ray that's usually about 90 mins, what's the problem with spending 50 for 6 1/2 hours minimum of entertainment?

I almost never spend $25-$30 on a blu-ray movie (unless it's extremely rare and foreign). I simply add it to my Amazon shopping cart and wait for it to become a reasonable price (read $15 and under) or find it on sale at best buy or used in a video store.

This is not being cheap, this is being sensible. I have hundreds of dvds and over a 150 blu rays. I am a collector and as such must spend my money wisely to grow the collection.

So yeah, Anchor Bay will eventually get my money, but not until they choose a saner price point for 6 episodes (which I will have already watched on TV).

I'm sure you'll be able to do the same with this, no?

I will, yes. But it would be nice for everyone if the prices didn't start out sky high. True I end up buying these things but I honestly believe it leads to a lot of piracy for those who don't feel like waiting.

Dude, if the price was 10.00 people would still pirate it. And maybe if they'd STOP pirating these things the studios wouldn't have to charge big prices as a means to recoup the money they've lost to piracy.

It's a vicious circle.

I really doubt it. I think when a studio is obviously gouging it makes consumers angry. I know I am.

Also, I resent that I buy DVDs and blu rays and am inundated with advertising that is often hard (or impossible) to skip. Pirated media lacks these annoyances.

Treat the consumer fairly and there will be LESS piracy. Not NO piracy, but a lot less.

You, my friend, have a lot more faith in humanity than I do! LOL

I've never been accused of faith before.

I do think people can be motivated by their passions. For example, here we find people passionate about horror. It is not a casual entertainment, it's a love affair with the genre, a defining personal characteristic.

People have always been willing to pay for those things that give them pleasure or help define their existence.

That's why it feels like a slap in the face when anchor bay knowingly gouges the fans. The truth is comparable to other tv box sets (especially for a half season of 6 episodes) $50 is just too high.

Hahahahaha. LOL. That's me. I'll walk through the store and complain to myself (silently) about the price of Tide laundry detergent (seriously,that shit seems way too expensive,but I gotta have Tide with Bleach Alternative haha),or Milk,or a can of Tuna. THEN,I'll go home, put the groceries away and head out for the night,chugging 15 Becks or sipping on some (ok many) Crown on the rocks running up a $50 bar tab,throwing maybe $20-$50 in the Cherry Master,then throwing $170 towards an 8ball and NEVER EVER take 1 second to add up/think about what I spend. Hehe.
