    Received a J&R email with a link to the preorder of Dreamworks The Ring for $9.99.

    Preorder here.

    There are two listed (WS & P&S). The one for $9.99 indicates WS. The second doesn't say P&S but is $21.99. Maybe this will encourage people to buy the 'proper' release.

    Regards,
    Rod

    Wow! For $12.94 shipped this is a really good deal. I was hesitant to pick this title up but I just can't pass it up for that price.

    I really hope the cover does not have the "You'll have a spooky good time" quote!! Time for someone to make a new cover!

    Looks like others at DVDtalk are receiving emails saying J&R won't honor that price (since it was a mistake). I haven't received my email yet...but expect to.

    Oh no! Oh well - I am not suprised really.

    I have not gotten any email cancelling my order either - but like Ron - I expect to.

    I haven't gotten a cancellation email either. And i even emailed their cust. serv. to say that if they don't honor the price I ordered it for(last Friday), that there will be a problem. Who knows, I guess we'll just wait and see.

    DVDFile.com just posted their review of the disc and I found it very interesting that the cover art that they show is different than the one posted all over the net. I guess someone figured out that that other cover was just too scary even for this movie.

    I guess that age-old saying of "If it's too good to be true - it probably is" comes to mind.....
