Well, it’d get a bit uncomfortable if they became “bitter rivals”, then.

Or a "hilarious" sitcom where David Gregory draws a line down the middle of the office and proclaims one side his and the other Vinegar Syndrome's.

So I guess that’d make Joe Rubin a recurring character they keep locked in their cellar?

The title for the sitcom being "Severin' Ties", naturally.

During the latest Severin podcast they tease the mystery title by saying Laura Gemser did the costumes and it has been on Blu-ray, but not by itself. Leading me to think it is one of these four possibilities:
Contamination .7
Troll 2 (they may be forgetting that MGM released this by itself)
Beyond Darkness
Metamorphosis

I think the last two are still in-print from Scream Factory, but Beyond Darkness' Italian title is Evil Dead 5 and an alternate US title is House 5. And those fit with the sale exclusive slipcovers. While Metamorphosis was called Reaninator 2 in Spain.

Contamination. 7 was also Troll 3 in the US. While Troll 2 doesn't appear to have any troublesome alternate titles.

Does that mean that folks on the East coast need to log in at midnight to order this item because it might be sold out by the morning?

Severin's site often crashes during the sale, so I wouldn't expect to be able to buy anything at 9/12.

Looking at the image of the mystery title they posted on facebook and I'm almost 100% sure it is Beyond Darkness

Correct on both accounts. The site kept crashing and the mystery title is Beyond Darkness

...and the price wasn't too outrageous either, given the 4K UHD element.

Really excited to have secured my copies of Franco’s Black Boots, Leather Whip & House of Lost Women, as well as the 4k of Morrissey’s Blood for Dracula.

These Severin sales are really becoming an event.

The two Francos are not site-exclusives, correct?

From memory the only site/sale exclusive title is their “mystery title”, though often the slipcovers are exclusive, and I guess you could add any of the titles w/ CD soundtracks if they sell out, but there’d be a standard edition after.

So is this sale the only opportunity to get this specific edition of Blood for Dracula?

If it sells out, yes, but I don't think it is a mid-year sale exclusive.

Drop Dead Fred [Blu-ray]
What was once called “fiendish” (Orlando Sentinel), “an obnoxious boil” (Washington Post) and “easily one of the worst films I’ve ever seen” (Gene Siskel) is today hailed as “genius” (Junkee), “a feminist masterpiece” (Purple Revolver) and “an unapologetically weird classic” (NME): With her adult life falling apart, a distraught woman (Phoebe Cates) accidentally unleashes her imaginary childhood friend Drop Dead Fred – the late great Rik Mayall of THE YOUNG ONES in his sole U.S. comedy feature – to wreak booger-flicking, poo-smearing vengeance on those who’ve wronged her. Marsha Mason (THE GOODBYE GIRL), Tim Matheson (NATIONAL LAMPOON’S ANIMAL HOUSE) and Carrie Fisher co-star in this “untouchable post punk classic” (Den Of Geek) from the executive producer of HIGH FIDELITY and THE BIG LEBOWSKI, now scanned in 2K with all-new Special Features for the first time ever in America.

Midnight [Blu-ray]
A decade after co-writing NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, writer/director John Russo gathered members of George Romero’s Pittsburgh crews to film a new shocker fueled by equal parts grisly grindhouse jolts and ‘80s satanic panic: Fleeing her pervy alcoholic stepfather (Lawrence Tierney of RESERVOIR DOGS infamy), a hitchhiking teen (Melanie Verlin) is abducted by a family of crazed homicidal rednecks for an ordeal of graphic butchery, shag carpet and devil worship. John Amplas (MARTIN) co-stars in this “greasy, grimy guilty pleasure” (DVD Talk) featuring gore effects by Tom Savini and executive produced by Sam Sherman (DRACULA VS. FRANKENSTEIN) – released in some US markets as BACKWOODS MASSACRE and seized in the UK as a DPP 39 ‘Video Nasty’ – now scanned in 4K from the negative of the long-rumored uncut version with all-new Special Features.

A Day of Judgement [Blu-ray]
From Earl Owensby Studios – the South’s biggest producer/distributor of ‘70s/’80s regional horror and exploitation hits – comes what may be the most obscure and bizarre slasher movie of the entire godless genre: In a 1930s small town rife with lust, corruption and sin, a mysterious figure wielding a scythe arrives to cut an unholy swath of murder, madness and moralizing that may lead straight to Hell. William T. Hicks (DEATH SCREAMS), Brownlee Davis (WOLFMAN), Jerry Rushing (FINAL EXAM) and Harris Bloodworth star in this “early ‘80s oddity worth seeing as something very different” (The Slasher Report) produced by Earl Owensby (TALES OF THE THIRD DIMENSION) and Worth Keeter (L.A. BOUNTY), now scanned in 2K from the IP for the first time ever.
