Wal-Mart for the Win – Dracula Untold & Kiefer Sutherland

I was at Wal-Mart the other day, perusing the movie section while my wife was shopping elsewhere.

Dracula Untold

 

They had an endcap of old and new Universal horror movies. There were single copies of classics like Dracula and Frankenstein as well as multi-packs of more modern fare such as the Tremors series. Most of them had stickers for $7.50 off a movie ticket for the new Dracula Untold movie.

Off in their new release section, I also found the newly released Universal Frankenstein Legacy Collection and Dracula Collection. Each were $19.99 with Dracula Untold tickets. If you own the old versions of these, you might consider upgrading as The Frankenstein Legacy old version contained: Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Son of Frankenstein, The Ghost of Frankenstein, and House of Frankenstein. The new version contains all of those as well as Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman, House of Dracula, and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein. The only difference in title is, instead of The Legacy Collection, it is The Complete Legacy Collection.

Kiefer 24

 

Hilarity ensued when I got to this option. For a mere five dollars, you can have a 24 hour movie binge with Kiefer Sutherland. This is a brilliant repackaging of two of Echo Bridge’s previous action movie collections. Out of the whopping 17 movies in the two collections, I believe only one of them actually stars Kiefer Sutherland. That would be the better forgotten Brotherhood of Justice from 1986 where Kiefer looks like this:

I wonder how many people will buy this thinking that they are getting 24 for $5.
