The RETURN of Out of Print Titles
- The Beast Must Die: A superior 35mm pre-print element of THE BEAST MUST DIE was recently unearthed in France and made available to us. On the previous Amicus box exclusive only an old HD telecine was available of the censored TV version and the censored scenes were scanned from a 16mm print and inserted. The newly available superior element was given a brand new scan and fully restored by Studio Canal in France.
- Blood on Satan’s Claw: Due to this year’s pandemic resulting in the unfortunate cancelation of many conventions throughout this year, we are bringing back the remaining stock of this release (roughly 200 copies) and putting them back in the shop during this sale, while stocks last. There are no plans for a standard release, so if you missed out last Black Friday, here is your final chance to grab a copy!
You can purchase all of these titles separately or you can grab them within some special Mid Year Sale Exclusive Bundles (referenced further down).

PLEASE NOTE: All of these new releases/bundles will be brief PRE-ORDERS.

You are more than welcome to purchase as many items as you would like from our store, but if your order contains ANY of the Mid Year releases, then nothing from your order will ship until ALL items are in hand at our shipping facility. If you want other items sooner, you will have to place SEPARATE orders and NOTATE this in your checkout comments.
Mid Year Sale FAQ’s
Your site is down/I cannot log in. Why? Like with most websites, a large flow of heavy user traffic can slow the site down exponentially, or even crash it. If you are having difficulties getting in to our site, please be mindful that we are already aware of the situation and it is a temporary problem that will be addressed immediately if it happens.(Yes, a live person will be watching the launch.) Please do not sit on the site and continue to refresh it during a crash/extreme lagging or inundate us with emails or messages on every social media platform. We know about the issue and we are working hard to fix it. Please just veer away from the site and come back a little later.
I did not receive an order confirmation. Did my order go through? Confirmations get sent out to the provided emails on orders. Please ensure that the email you entered at checkout is accurate and free of misspellings (“.con” is a very common occurrence) and that you have checked all of your email folders (spam, junk, promotions, etc.) after placing the order. If your PayPal receipt is not enough and you must receive an order confirmation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with RESEND MY ORDER CONFIRMATION in the subject line and it will be addressed as soon as possible. Please Note: You will immediately receive an Out of Office response but someone will be with you shortly.
What is the status of my order? When will I get my order? We will begin packaging orders immediately AFTER the sale ends. A tracking notification email will be sent to the provided email via our shipping program, Shipstation, once your order is processed. Again, please ensure that your address is free of misspellings and that you have checked all of your email folders (spam, junk, promotions, etc.). Depending on the number of orders that this sale generates, it could take up to four weeks for all orders to get processed due to our short staffing while the Pandemic continues. If your order includes a Mid Year release, it should begin shipping within one to two weeks after the sale ends. PLEASE NOTE: We will NOT be answering emails with this question. You will instead be directed back to these policies. Please understand that this isn’t to be rude. It will be a very small crew handling thousands of orders and stopping to answer this question over and over will keep packages from being shipped in a timely manner. We will announce on our website and social medis pages when we have completed shipping. If you haven’t received a shipping notification by then, then yes, please email in.
Do you ship internationally and what about free shipping?/I thought your Free Shipping rates were lower? Yes, we ship all over the world. Shipping rates are carefully calculated to factor in the USPS shipping rates, our handling fees, and supplies used. Our site also offers FREE economy shipping (Media Mail for US orders). For FREE shipping eligibility:
- U.S. residents must spend $100 and over.
- Canadian residents must spend $150 and over.
- All other countries must spend $200 and over.
PLEASE NOTE: The FREE SHIPPING TIERS are raised at EVERY Mid Year and Black Friday Sale EVERY year. Also, the shipping default is set to pay for shipping, so you will need to manually select that you want FREE ECONOMY SHIPPING once you reach your appropriate tier, if applicable.
FOR CANADIAN AND OTHER INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS, PLEASE NOTE: We are NOT responsible for any lost packages during our sale, ESPECIALLY since the USPS seems to be struggling with delivering packages in a timely manner due to the pandemic. If your order is returned back to our facility, we will contact the provided email to inform you of the situation and you will need to pay for re-shipment of your order or cancel it for a refund of the cost of items only.
Where is my order? Is my order lost? Can you do something about my traveling order? Once a processed order is picked up by the USPS and leaves our facility, it is out of our hands and we have ZERO control over how fast or slow your package travels to its final destination. It is your responsibility to take your tracking number to your local Post Office and inquire with them about your delayed/potentially lost package. A helpful tool is to ask your PO to check the GPS coordinates of your package to see where it went. We will be happy to step in and resolve this issue once the tracking of your package has shown over two weeks of inactivity (usually 4-6 weeks of inactivity for International orders but will now be raised to up to 3 months due to the pandemic). If you placed an order over $100 and think your delivered package was stolen, you will need to provide us proof of a filed police report before we can resend a new package
I’d like to cancel my order. How do I do this? Please email email@example.com with CANCEL MY ORDER in the subject line and it will be addressed as soon as possible. If the correct subject line is not put in, then you run the risk of your email not being answered in a timely manner. Also, due to Paypal’s recent policy update of not refunding their fees for cancelled orders to businesses anymore, there will be restocking fees for cancelled orders in the following increments:
- Under $100: No restocking fee
- $100 to $500: $5 restocking fee
- $500 to $1000: $10 restocking fee
- Over $1000: $50 restocking fee
Please Note: You will immediately receive an Out of Office response but someone will be with you shortly.
I received my order but there is a mistake. How can we fix this? If we gave you the wrong item or forget an item then no problem! Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with INCORRECT ORDER in the subject line and it will be addressed as soon as possible. If the correct subject line is not put in, then you run the risk of your email not being answered in a timely manner. Please Note: You will immediately receive an Out of Office response but someone will be with you shortly.
I placed multiple orders during the sale/I have an existing pre-order. Can you combine them? We created a function at checkout where you can choose “Add to My Existing Order” as your shipping option. Make sure to check BOTH “Add to My Existing Order” boxes during checkout. If any of your orders contain a Pre-order, it will be withheld until ALL stock is in hand at our facility.
The “Add To My Existing Order” function will not fully work for International customers as it combines the orders but still charges shipping. If you are an International customer and have placed multiple orders during the sale, please email us afterwords at email@example.com with ADJUST INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING in the subject line and it will be addressed as soon as possible. Please Note: You will immediately receive an Out of Office response but someone will be with you shortly.
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU CHOOSE THE “ADD TO MY EXISTING ORDER” FUNCTION AND YOU DO NOT HAVE ANOTHER ORDER TO COMBINE WITH (AND YOU DID NOT PAY FOR SHIPPING IF REQUIRED), YOUR ORDER WILL BE CANCELLED.
Are your Blu-rays/DVDs region free? Most of them are, but a small amount are not. Each listing on our site will have Region Code information included.
If I pre-order an item, will I be charged when it ships or upfront? Upfront.
Hopefully we’ve answered any questions you may have had. If there is something that we did NOT cover, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not use any other email or social media (ESPECIALLY Severin/Intervision employees PERSONAL accounts) to try to reach us concerning this sale unless directed otherwise. Please do not send the same email multiple times to multiple email addresses. To help save time and allow us to continue to work on processing orders as quickly as possible, if your email has a question that was addressed here, we will send you back to this guideline. Thank you for helping us curb the large influx of emails during this sales event. Good Luck and Happy Shopping!
