This is long out of print and reasonably hard to find but Diabolik just got a bunch in stock.

If you're interested, I wouldn't sit on this too long.

It's a great set and they haven't marked it up (it's $23.99).

Masterfully crafted, brilliantly atmospheric and as powerfully chilling as the day they were released, these Gothic tales of undead, bloodthirsty Count Karol de Lavud (Germán Robles) upped the impact of Hollywood horror and set the template for countless fright-films for years to come -- made both in Mexico and the world over.

Described as "Dracula on a hacienda," El Vampiro chronicles the journey of young Marta (Ariadna Welter) who learns that her family is under the demonic control of Count Luvad (Germán Robles). As he feeds on the blood of the locals and aims to raise his brother from the dead, Marta and the mysterious Dr. Enrique (Abel Salazar) threaten the Count. The wrath of El Vampiro then reigns down upon them, and an all-time horror classic plays out with unforgettable eeriness and excitement.

You can't keep a wicked bloodsucker down, as proven in El Ataúd del Vampiro, the follow-up to El Vampiro. Marta (Ariadna Welter) and Dr. Enrique (Abel Salazar) battle Count Luvad (Germán Robles) anew, after he has turned the grave-robbers who accidentally resurrected him into zombie servants. Bent on vengeance and clamoring for the blood of beautiful women, Count Luvad proves to be one of horror's most indelible villains, and The Vampire's Coffin is a spooky, thrilling classic every bit on par with its renowned predecessor.

CasaNegra Entertainment is proud to present these acclaimed horror classics of Mexico in a single collector's edition: The Vampire (aka El Vampiro) and its sequel, The Vampire's Coffin (aka El Ataúd del Vampiro).

They sold out of that last batch but just added 20+ more copies to their store yesterday.
I had copies of these but just decided to grab the real deal for my library.
Where do they find these piles of OOP goodness?
