THE FINAL SINISTER CINEMA CATALOG is Now Available!
VHS is Done! Sort of... We are out of blank tape stock. However, we do have limited quantities of a number of leftover VHS pre-records we used to carry from other companies like HBO/Orion, VCI, and others. The titles are DIE MONSTER, DIE; CRY OF THE BANSHEE; UNTAMED MISTRESS (call us on this one before ordering: 541-773-6860); THE LOST CONTINENT (1951); THE BOOGEY MAN; GORGO; and TORTURE CHAMBER OF BARON BLOOD. These are factory-sealed VHS pre-records that have never been opened and THEY ARE ON SALE FOR ONLY $6.95 EACH. These are actually fairly rare, collectible items so grab them while you can. We've stuck them in their respective website categories and also in the New Releases section for the time being. If you have questions, please call us (541-773-6860) or drop us a line.
THE SUPER 6 SALE Is Back Once Again! (Good through March 15th)

THE SINISTER CINEMA FAREWELL TOUR—A MESSAGE TO SINISTER CINEMA & ARMCHAIR FICTION CUSTOMERS:
Okay here’s the deal…our Final Sinister Cinema Catalog is now available. Let me explain what’s going on. As many of you know, I flirted with the idea of ending the annual Sinister Cinema catalog a couple of years ago. Sales had been way down in 2016 and Social Security yawned before me. But you guys responded to our opening message in the 2017-2018 catalog in grand fashion! It was a great show of support and we thank you again very, very much. However, this past year (2018) was a rough one and for the first time ever Sinister Cinema came close to actually losing money during the calendar year.
And let’s face it, we’re nearly the last of the original mom-and-pop video companies that are still around. We started way back in 1984! 35 years…wow. I’m the first to admit that we are technologically behind the times (way behind!) and the prospect of taking on the expense of new avenues of video release (blu-ray, streaming, etc.) isn’t something we are willing to bear the financial burden of doing. So I’m retiring from the full time operation of Sinister Cinema and Armchair Fiction early next year.
WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN NEXT?
We are going to go through this year and the very beginning of next year just as we normally would. It will be kind of a farewell tour and give us time to say thank you to all of you who have supported us over the years. I’ll try to make myself available for phone calls, and your emails and letters are always welcome. Yes…we’ll have one last go-round of Drive-in Double Features in June. Then we’ll have our normal batch of annual new releases in October. Our usual flyers will be mailed out on both occasions. Depending on the overall response, I might even sneak in one last flyer at the beginning of February, 2020.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN THEN?
In February of 2020 I will make a final decision. Do I pack it in and shut down both the Sinister and Armchair websites, or do I keep them open and fill the orders that trickle in from time to time? Honestly, it will all depend on the response. I know some of you are likely “horrified” at the thought of not being able to buy Sinister product anymore, but rest assured, keeping Sinister open on a part time basis is what I lean towards doing. Obviously, though, we will have to have enough support to justify staffing the office with a part time employee(s). If you have questions, please give us a call or drop us an email. So there you have it. Our fate after February 2020 is more or less in your hands. But regardless, it’s been a great run. Running Sinister Cinema and Armchair Fiction has been a very labor intensive job, but I feel very lucky having had a career doing something that’s essentially a hobby. For that I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Sincerely, Greg Luce. (and my loyal slaves, Kat & Mo)

ATTENTION! 12 New ARMCHAIR FICTION Releases! SPRING/SUMMER 2019
Our latest batch includes two new Horror Gems Collections, featuring the best of Weird Tales, as well as five new Mammoth Mystery Doubles, featuring classic works by Edgar Wallace, Mary Roberts Rinehart, and others. PLUS! Armchair Fiction presents a new line of “Scandalous Classics,” featuring the works of Florence Stonebraker—five unforgettable tales of unmitigated greed, wanton lust, brutal action, and downright sin! These five well-written tales are filled with salacious, sexually charged moments about gorgeous, wayward girls and big, brawny mis-guided men. You see, Florence Stonebraker (1896-1977) was the true queen of the “Naughty Novels” of the 1950s and 1960s. Without crossing society’s borders of moral acceptability, she was able to spin webs of scandalous, risqué behavior in novel after novel. And the covers are to DIE for! Check 'em out...
