“Oozing Skull” Shipping Date Uncovered?

A member of the MST3K forums decided to call EZTakes — Cinematic Titanic’s current distributor — and find out what’s been going on with the oft-delayed Oozing Skull. Also, due to the ordering blitz from deprived Joel fanboys and girls, EZTakes seemed to be in a slight bit of disarray. So, yeah, people have been a little… concerned, of late. What did he find out?

Well, the important news is that Skull should be shipping on the 8thUPDATE: Or possibly the 10th. Basically, EZTakes isn’t used to having such a heavy demand on them. The episode was finished, then handed over to them for a quick release, and it doesn’t seem like that’s familiar or easy ground for them. So, with a little patience, you could possibly be receiving your discs in less than 1-2 weeks. An email announcement should be hitting your mailbox tonight, if you ordered the episode. If you didn’t, you’re probably a dirty commie. Like, uh, me.

  1. I had a moment’s hesitation when I discovered that a burn-on-demand outfit was handling manufacture and distribution. I’m all for independent media and self-distribution, but it seemed to me demand would already be high for this product. I’m also concerned about the paper sleeve — I’ll have to buy a separate case for it, because otherwise I might end up sending the thing to NetFlix.

  2. Well Mr Death ( one of the CT staff) mentioned on IRC that he was told the 10th. So hopefully that is when people actually have them.

  3. I received a shipment date of Wednesday the 9th.

    also, Does anyone know what the sales numbers are?

    Ive been trying to search far and wide, and would be grateful to anyone who could find out how many copies they sold the first day, or even how many they have sold so far….

  4. I’ve seen some pretty high order numbers, but part of me wonders if the order numbers weren’t just CT-exclusive. As in, it might mean 20,000 orders on EZTakes, not 20,000 orders of Cinematic Titanic. Either way, there’s a thread in the forum where people shared their order numbers. You could try there.
