You might have noticed something funny going on with the first volume of THE VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION. The Blu-ray collection, released less than a year ago by Scream! Factory, is no longer available from Amazon ... but is currently being sold by third party vendors for outrageous prices.
A few minutes ago, Scream! Factory announced the collection has been discontinued because of rights issues. "Unfortunately we have lost our rights to put the films included in that set in a multi-film collection. What this means is that our VP COLLECTION will soon be going into an out-of-print status," it was announced at the Facebook page for Scream Factory.
The films included in this collection are THE PIT & THE PENDULUM, THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH, THE HAUNTED PALACE, THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER, THE ABOMINABLE DR. PHIBES and WITCHFINDER GENERAL.
Note: These rights issue apparently don't affect VINCENT PRICE COLLECTION VOLUME II.
