Merchandising: Best Buy Doubles Up on Horror Steelbooks

There wasn’t much in the way of new Blu-ray and DVD releases for retailers to get excited about Sept. 20.

In fact, some Target locations in Southern California by Wednesday evening already had the displays set up for next week’s new releases, with tags for Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder and Rob Zombie’s The Munsters labeling several empty shelves in the new-release section.

Otherwise, Target touted a sale for Halloween movies on Blu-ray and DVD for as low as $10.

Best Buy did offer a couple of Steelbook edtions for some catalog horror titles being released on 4K disc during the week by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

The Steelbook editions for the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray combo packs of both 1982’s Poltergeist and 1987’s The Lost Boys were offered at $31.99 apiece.
