    Are there any DVD's you missed out on buying when they were first released that you now regret not picking up. One I can think is the Begotten. Someone needs to re-release that film. In any region. I didn't know what to make of it when I saw it but now it's been haunting my brain for years. Someone needs to get that out.

    I think because of that there has been more then a few times that I've picked up a DVD over a other film I enjoyed more just because I felt It was more obscure and could possibly go out of print anytime.

    Criterion's Salo but I've read it's coming back to the shelves in a near future.

    Anchor Bay's Giallo Collection. I didn't even know what a giallo was at the time of its release, now I'm kicking myself because I missed out on such a great set. Someone needs to re-release Case of the Bloody Iris already!
     
  4. The original release of the 1986 Little Shop Of Horrors, the one with the alternate ending! The one with that's ebayed at close to $200 everytime! I had it in my stupid little hands & I put it back in the racks....about a day or two after it got pulled!

    I also missed out on the Maniac Tin!

    Lastly (and leastly) Fright Night 2...though I'm not crying over that one.

    All in all, I've got some rarities in my collection.

    the Maniac tin and The Wicker Man wooden box set
     
  6. both of those were blind buys with me....never seen them before but bought them anyways...

    I gotta agree with the giallo box set....that and Schramm (but I think Schramm just got re-released in a cheaper form with the same extras...)

    Pretty basic, but I missed out on the Evil Dead II tin. I even saw it at a Best Buy when it came out! Oh well, probably better than I didn't blow any more cash on yet another edition of an ED DVD.

    The biggest one for me are:

    Bride of Re-Animator (the SE that is widescreen and not the terrible Artisan transfer.)

    The Pit and the Pendulum Stuart Gordon's film which was barely released at all.

    Alice, Sweet Alice I think I heard it might be released again soon.

    Maniac tin (as well as a bunch of other Anchor Bay tins)
    Cannibal Ferox (original Grindhouse release)
    A tonne of Criterion releases

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

    I also am a bit upset that I missed out on this:

    I actually saw this at Best Buy on the day of its release and its going for somewhat of a high price on ebay. I had the original Pioneer disc and the concept of double dipping was foreign to me at the time.

    I've never heard about this one. Does the cover look any different than the one that's now kicking around in discount bins?

    I kinda wish I had snagged the Swamp Thing DVD with the nudie bits included, but I rented it when it was new and copied it to VHS so at least I have that. What I should do is go back and do a proper DVD rip.

    Nope, just a few more words on the back mentioning the alt. ending.
    I think it has a different barcode though, but at a glance it's identical.

    Criterion's This is Spinal Tap. It was available when I bought my 1st DVD player but I never knew that it would become OOP so quickly. I am still raging over that one. Also same thing happened to me with Kiss - MTV Unplugged. I was happy to get my Criterion Sid and Nancy tho.

    another film that comes to mind...

    Criterion's release of Robocop
     
  16. I actually scooped this up about 6 or so months ago at a Gamestop for $9.99! I had read it was OOP and kinda rare so I bought it w/o a 2nd thought! It sometimes pays to look at the used DVDs at your local game retailer! :)

    Is it worth some serious cash? Not that I'm interested in selling, but its always nice to know I did "OK" in finding something rare.

    Oh, I never got the widescreen Bride of Re-animator either! Argh!

    The Begotten.

    I had an ex-girlfriend show it to me ages ago and still to this day regret not swiping it from her before we split up.

    Pretty much the main ones that are OOP that I wanted are Phenomena and Wax Mask. Ones like Invasion of the Blood Farmers or Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, I would like as well.

    I'm sure Voices From Beyond and Aenigma will be on this list soon enough. They're rather expensive for films I'm not sure I'll like, but I do have an interest in them because they're Fulci.
