I’m pretty sure The Crawling Eye is part of Wade Williams’ “collection,” so it’s not on Blu-ray and don’t expect it to be for a long time.

I've been thinking about The Crawling Eye a lot recently and was surprised its a bit hard to find. I had the VHS as a kid and watched it all the time

It all boils down to Wade Williams, the rightsholder. In short, his films were more available on video and during the very early days of DVD because he hasn't kept up with the times. Distributors (such as Kino) have shown interest and made offers to him to release his "collection" (which is a lot of '50s B-movies), but he's supposedly demanded ridiculous prices. Distributors also aren't interested in releasing his existing transfers on Blu-ray because most of them seem to have been done in the '90s or early 2000s. There's a very depressing thread on the Home Theater Forum where Mr. Williams offers his own thoughts on why his collection is sitting idle.

Would you believe it took me a trip to Canada to to buy Godzilla: King of the Monsters? It's definitely not what I intended, but I stalled on the Best Buy steelbook and missed my chance as a result, so I was kind of waffling over when to get the standard edition. While I was away on vacation, I ended up in Walmart and couldn't resist checking out the video section. GKOTM was 20 CAD, so I figured that was the best price I'd see for a while.
Being in the mood, I also picked up the Back to the Future digipak, which I think ended up being around the same price it would be in the States.

Of course these also arrived from Amazon. The Ultra Q slipcover is, sadly, a bit bent out of shape at the top; but overall they're pretty snazzy releases. I look forward to watching them!

While I was out shopping the other day, I picked up these three. Stranger Things has been tempting me sitting at $10 for probably MONTHS now; and having finally watched the first season recently, I went ahead and bit the bullet.
The two anime are blind buys; I've been doing that more with anime. :lol: In the case of Penguin Highway, I've greatly liked other adaptations of this author's work (Tatami Galaxy, The Eccentric Family, The Night Is Short), so I figured it's a safe bet. I also just get a kick out of seeing semi-obscure titles like these in Target, of all places, so I spoke with my wallet.
Satellite Girl was sitting in a $5 Walmart bin, so I took pity on it. The synopsis sounds like a riot, too, so I'll probably watch it soon!

Should be here just in time for Halloween viewing. I opted for the steel book with Ultra Q. I don’t usually care much about packaging as long as it gets the job done but the Mothra disc was pretty nice so I thought I’d give it a shot. Will see how I like this one before I decide which Ultraman packaging to order.
