Am glad to see this one with a decent rating. A brief synopsis and a flashy cover art is all I had to decide if I wanted to spend my cash on a blind buy.
And a company that is unknown to me as well, releasing a decent product. I don't feel so reluctant to make the purchase now.

Saw this at Walmart yesterday but there are TWO problems.

1) They only offer the dvd, NOT the Blu-Ray
2) For some reason, it's called "Holiday Horror Story" :magnifingglass: --- WTF? If "Christmas" offends, I am sure a horror story around/about it would offend even more.

So, I ordered from Amazon.

Holiday Horror Story?!?! Are you f'n kidding me??? I would LOVE to see a picture of that DVD package.That's just ridiculous. What next? Black Holiday? A Holiday Story? How the Grinch Stole Holiday? GTFO! People get offended over the dumbest things and love to ruin fun for others. That's just brutal.

Lol, nice comeback.

When I saw the package I asked the associate wtf, no Blu version and what's with the altered title?

Will snap a picture and post it. When I go to Walmart.com and type in "horror story" it comes up as Christmas.

I got to thinking, maybe "Holiday Horror Story" is a rip-off film, you know, like when a company like Asylum makes movies like "The Day the Earth Stopped". Searched Google about it and came back with nothing of the sort. I still can't believe Walmart would alter a title like that. Ridiculous.

"Holiday" Horror Story.

Note the caption/review is exactly the same, the cover art is also the same.

A clearer picture of the movie in the rack. Each time I took a pic of the movie with the caption at the bottom it was not as clear.

E can you verify what you received is CHRISTMAS Horror Story? Per my pictures above, is this something Walmart did or is it everywhere?
