All right, this is probably going to be our last post for the week, giving the Thanksgiving holiday here in the States, though we may come back and let you know of any particularly good Black Friday-related Blu-ray and DVD deals as they pop up.

All right, today’s Oktoberfest Giveaway happens over on The Digital Bits Facebook page starting at Noon (Pacific), and features a copy of Scream Factory’s X-Ray/Schizoid on Blu-ray! The drawing will happen at 3 PM (Pacific) so be sure to head on over there if you’re interested. And if you’ve not already “liked” The Bits Facebook and Jahnke’s Electric Theater Facebook pages, you might want to do so soon, as we’re going to be giving away another amazing Universal Classic Monsters prop replica from Factory Entertainment next week – it’s the amazing Frankenstein VFX Bust!

So be sure to head on over to Facebook and give the pages a “like” so you can be eligible to participate.
