    I find that if you can wait and don't need all the special edition hoohaa most of these titles are selling for far more reasonable prices on Amazon.ca within 6 months to a year.

    I don't like giving my money to Amazon but when you're going to charge me more for shipping than the price of the disc I don't see much choice.

At that point it became a "come to Jesus" moment about why I collect movies in the first place and at the end of the day pragmatism and moderation won out, which is a rare thing for me. Severin sold out of it quickly so they did the right thing for themselves too, knowing most people wouldn't be able to resist. Again, if people pay it then that's what it's worth.
        They still are selling it, you just have to email and ask them. It is just so stupid and annoying.

        Yeah, most titles they do standard editions (most recently standard UHDs of The Psychic, Nightmare, and Bad Bioloigy,) but Four Flies only has the limited edition available and I assume they will do the same with this.

          I'm looking at their other 4K UHD releases and the most expensive ones have a list price of $69.95. Now, admittedly that's a crazy price for a single movie (and feels like the days when you could buy a VHS pre-record of TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE in the pages of Fangoria for $70) but obviously you're not only getting just the movie, you're also getting various cuts of some of the films, and quite a few extras. For example, their DR. BUTCHER MD is a 4 disc, multi-format set.

          The thing is that right now those $69.95 films are "on sale" for $50. I have no idea what this sale is or how long it's been going on, but I do know that I rarely, if ever, purchase stuff directly from any of the boutique labels at full retail. It may be smoke and mirrors and maybe they should just go ahead and make the MSR $49.95 but I'm going to guess that Severin, along with Vinegar Syndrome, make their nut each year from the Black Friday, and Halfway to Black Friday sales, and then do these random price reductions, and then when things are slow something may actually be listed for full retail and if someone is willing to pay that at that time then that's what it's worth, but more often than not things are discounted in some way.

          Severin doesn't show how many copies of a title they have left in stock like VS does so I'll use VS as an example here. Right now, the VS site shows that they have 711 copies left of their THRILLER: A CRUEL PICTURE standard 4K. The MSR on that is $49.98, which of course is crossed out and they're actually selling it for $34.99. There's no sale happening now, that's just their current price for that. I don't know how accurate this assumption is but let's say it cost $15 to manufacture those discs - that means they have $10,655.00 of stock sitting unsold in their warehouse for just that one title. How do they, and Severin, get the cash flow to allow for all this slowly selling backstock? Seems to me that hyping new, and upcoming releases with a high ticket price that just happens to be marked down to the point that they can make a decent ROI that covers not just the manufacturing costs of the releases that sell out quick but also the less popular stuff that may take 4 or 5 years to sell out is their way of doing that. I don't personally see that as gouging, but I guess I understand why it could feel that way. To me it's a company who're catering to an extremely niche market doing what they can to keep on keeping on.
          A lot of boutique labels in media are working on credit from their printers/pressers.
