    6 issues/DVDs, plus 40 DVD movies (what would they be) for $40?
    did anyone get refunds from first subscription, or carryovers?
    hmmmm

    God, think of this travesty...Total Movie which went out of business teaming up with Inside DVD, who can't seem to get more than 1 issue out a year!
    I got about 3/4 of my Total Movie subscription back from them with a phone call.

    I deleted the email since I never got a refund. If I see a copy on the newstand I might pick it up. I just put my four old issues out for recycling.
    I wish their was a DVD or movie equivalent of MOJO, the only magazine that I will keep all the issues for.

    More like total rip-off. They try and make it sound like a great offer when in reality you get 6 issues of a magazine, 6 fair DVDs, and 46 movies? We all can assume that the movies will be crap and most are in public domain, like the "Little Shop of Horrors" that came with an early "issue" of InsideDVD.
    So I'm paying $6.66 an issue?
    How much will that be off of newsstand price?

    Sorry, I don't want to call "Night of the Living Dead" crap(Which comes with the first issue), but it is a public domain movie and will probably look like crap on the DVD.

    I think it takes pretty big stones for somebody to send something to you about sending them more money when you still havent recieved what you payed for in the first place. Or for that matter ever given you a refund. I responded to their email with a "I hope you are going to send me these issues to make up for what you did before".Lets see if they will step up to the plate and make it right. I doubt it but i'd love to eat my words. [​IMG]

    Well, to answer my own question it said that the newsstand price for 6 issues is $117.89.
    That comes out to about $19.65 an issue, are they serious?

    Interesting thread.
    1) I haven't received any e-mail yet. But then my email prefix is "awayspam", so maybe they caught my meaning! [​IMG]
    2) I too called Total Movie when I found out that they were cancelled. I asked for my money back. I never got it!
    3) If they want to fulfill their commitment to me - finally! - then that's great. There's no way on God's green earth I'll ever send them another penny...but if they want to send me more magazines to fill the 3 they owe me, then that's just jiffy.

    P.S. - just for shits and grins, I just went and clicked on my old bookmark for their web site ( http://www.total-movie.com/ . It's working again! No big surprise, huh?

    I'd risk the $40 on the 40 public-domain movies alone, but how do I know they're even going to get THOSE out? I would've subscribed but they ask for a credit card number, and at this point how do I know they won't bill me without sending anything? At least before when InsideDVD started paid subscriptions they had a "bill me later" option, so when I subscribed to that and got nothing at least I didn't pay anything.
    If anyone from Inside DVD is reading this, I think it'd be in their best interest to post something here saying WHAT the 40 movie titles are and WHEN we can expect them to be delivered. THEN maybe I'll think about giving them my credit card number.

    They won't see another dime from me -- not even if they send me the remaining issues of the Total Movie [​IMG]

    Since I was was a paying subscriber to both InsideDVD and Total Movie, and since I got 4 issues of Total Movie and maybe 2 "paid" InsideDVD discs, I figure I'm owed more than a year of this new thing that they're offering. I fear that my subscription will outlast this publication once again.
