    I've been trying to find any information on the next batch of Midnite Movies streeting tomorrow. I know which movies are apart of the lineup and I know that they are exclusive to Best Buy but I've been searching BB's website, there's no record of any of the titles. I even went through their entire list of titles coming out tomorrow and not one Midnite Movie showed up. I also find it suspicious that none of the titles were featured in the ad. I've called Best Buy a few times before on titles like these and I know they don't even look for them. Does anyone know for sure that Best Buy is getting these tomorrow?

    You have to understand movies like that are VERY difficult to look up on the type of inventory system BB uses.

    Did you try to look up the movies by title? And how did you find out they were streeting tomorrow if they are exclusive but you can't find any info on them?

    Try amazon.ca "Amazon Canada". They should have the titles you want.

    Bestbuy.com and their in-store listings still doesn't show some of the last batch of "exclusives" either (Count Yorga double feature, Madhouse/Theatre of Blood, etc.), so don't count on finding them there. They'll probably just show up on the shelves this week.

    The BB in Santa Rosa, Ca. had an end-rack display with the last big batch. There's hoping...

    No luck here, I'm afraid. I knew something like this would happen. Of course, Best Buy gets a 100 copies of Fat Albert and not 1 of Last Man on Earth/ Panic In Year Zero. Hopefully they come out soon.

    Why do they have an exclusive on these titles if they're not going to stock them???

    I've been to 2 Best Buys (Atwater/Yorba Linda) and nobody knew anything and they weren't in the computer.

    They did have Media Blasters "Matango-Attack of the Mushroom People"...not in the sci-fi/horror section...in the action section. The place is run by bozos!!!

    Went to the 2 Best Buys in my area -- NOTHING. To top it off, nobody there had a damn clue what I was talking about.

    None here either. I just ordered the discs I wanted from DVDSoon since there's no telling when, if ever, Best Buy will receive their "exclusive" DVDs. Fortunately most Canadian etailers have the new titles in stock and even with shipping they'll wind up costing a bit less than at Best Buy.

    What a joke, not a single one of the new "exclusive" Midnight Movie titles at my local BB either. No Wild Kingdom or Alfredo Garcia either. Pathetic. One of these days I'll learn and stop counting on B&M's to have anything even remotely outside the mainstream on street date.

    The Best Buy in my area usually gets smaller catalog titles later in the week and gets them out on the shelves by Friday or Saturday. So maybe if you check this weekend, you'll find them.

    The Best Buy website has them all listed. But they are showing a June 7th street date.

    This makes no sense.

    Strange story here....

    I spotted each of the new Midnite Movies over the weekend but didn't buy any of them. I went back to BB on Monday and they were still there but again, I didn't buy any. I went there today to pick up three of the titles and they were still there so I took them to the register and no price would come up. The clerk called over a manager who called someone and then told me they were for sale until the next week. At first he wasn't going to let me buy them but I started throwing a fit and said the magic letters "BBB" and he finally sold them.

    www.dvddrive-in.com also has some reviews posted and other members have already gotten them. My guess is that some stores broke street date while others are going by the real date, which seems to be next week.
