    I only got mine in December (for Xmas), Its pre-used so I don't think anyone else would want it if I'm the second person to have it.

    Its a very tempermental disk as well, it only play right sometimes, other times the pictue keeps sticking.....Grrr

    Well, you know they're going to re-issue it when the remake comes out... Gotta happen.
     
  5. A remastered reissue with some good extras sounds awesome right about now.
     
  6. Yeah, I hope it comes to pass, as I've been goin' through Amazon 3rd party sellers as of late, and snatchin' up some old school Slashers, and I am hoping that this one get's a nice re-release. Hmm a remake I noticed is comin' up, huh? Sweet, as it means a special edition release will no doubt be on the way. ;)

    Maybe... but it doesn't always happen. All of the Death Race 2000 DVD's were OOP when the remake came out for example.

    The majority of Elite Entertainment released DVD's are now OOP.

    All the old Batman flicks stayed OOP while Dark Knight came to theaters and dvd/br.

    You'll probably find better prices tracking House dvds on ebay. Amazon prices for really rare stuff are jacked up super-high and don't represent the true going rate for an OOP title. Ebay does, just be sure to check the sellers stats and feedback to avoid the bad ones, there's enough good ones out there.
    On the flip side, for OOP movies no one cares about, Amazon is probably better as you'll find those for a couple/few bucks, while the ebay auctions will start higher than what you can pay outright on Amazon.

    I only have the Vestron VHS tape from...uh...'83?
    Anyways, could somebody tell me if the tape is cut, and/or if the DVD is uncut?
     
  11. Funny that this DVD is being discussed right now. I just got a British import copy from Ebay for about $10 U.S. 2 days ago. The DVD is region free PAL and is full screen unfortunately and full of compression artifacts, especially on the opening scene. During scenes with fast motion or camera pans there is a doubling effect probably caused by my player's PAL to NTSC conversion. But for 10 bucks you can't go wrong and the movie is decent.

    That's actually probably due to the DVD itself. It sounds like the video was taken from an NTSC source, converted to PAL, but not speed-corrected. A few of Anchor Bay UK's titles do this (Hellraiser I and II, Bloody Birthday).

  16. You are probably right about that, though I don't have an AB copy, but one made by a cheap-o company called Boulevard Entertainment, meaning that what you said is even more likely.

    Well, just as you all had suspected. This is being re-released November 24. It's being put out by Liberation Ent. Is this company legit?

    It says 25th Anniversary Edition along the top of the artwork so it sounds like it's gonna be full of features. Let's hope.

    Funny thing. I recently tried purchasing the Elite one on Amazon for fairly cheap. Of course, it turned out to be a bootleg (a bad one too, VHS dubbed to DVD). I was able to get my money back. Luckily now, I can get this one!

    BTW, I used the search engine & found this thread so I added this info here. Didn't want you guys to yell at me for starting a new thread when this one already existed :p

    If it has new extras I'll pick it up and sell off my older DVD. Here's hoping...
