    There seems to be a lot of people with a huge movie collection on here and it'd be interesting to see how many movies the average horrordvds.com user has. It's rough clicking on everyone's DVD lists, so I figure this'd be a more appropriate way to find out.

    DVDs, VHS, Laserdisc all included!

    With DVD, VHS, and the few Lasers I have? Geez, easily over 800 in the horror genre when I combine them all...I don't have a rough count, but easily over that number.

    Since I can't be bothered to count 'em all, I'll estimate 700 or more. :D

    Way to many. Or way to few, one or the other. I put down 300 - 350 though.

    I don't have that many DVDs, but once you count VHS then the numbers get pretty high.

    Not a lot... I'd say less than 40. I just started collecting dvds a year or two ago. And since my student life doesn't bring in a lot of money, I'm far behind most people around here. But slowly, very slowly getting there.

    1300 dvds, vhs and ld!?! Wow, I wouldn't even have the space for that many!!!

    I have almost 300...about 150-175 of them are VHS though. I'm still pretty new with collecting DVDs as well, and I've been pretty broke for the last couple of years. Starting to pick up speed though. :)

    My best guess-timate for Horror only: 600 + DVD's. I figured about 1200 DVD's total and about half of those are Horror related. One of these days I'm going to organize my collection.

    Those massive collections are impressive. Even if you watch just one film a day, it will take you almost 3 years to watch 1,000 films. Where do you keep them?

    Holy cow guys, I have about 20. I was surprised to see that "less than 100" is the lowest category. I've probably owned a total of about 80 at one time or another, but sold many of them when I decided I wouldn't really want to watch them again. Some of you seem to hate ebay, but I love it.

    I don't sleep nearly as much as most people do...so I average about 3 films a day, er night sometimes....sometimes more. I'd say that I easily watch more than 1,000 films in a year. I guess I'm just an obsessive movie lover, and always have been as long as I can remember.

    I keep most of the VHS and DVD's on custom shelves in my ample sized media room. The walls look pretty cluttered, but it's not a dining room or anything! :evil:

    Yeah I watch at least one or two per day. I have six black racks from a company called Naturals that hold about 250 DVDs each. Right now the wrap around the walls of my living room...and look pretty decent under my movie posters. Not sloppy or anything. The last one is just about full and I will have to figure something out. The bottom three shelves on that one are things I still have not opened/watched. As for how I managed to get that many...I guess working for Suncoast for almost 10 years and having that discount (and one at Best Buy for a couple of years while they owned Suncoast) was what really made them pile up. I buy alot less now that I don't work there...but I guess I still buy more than the average person.

    My goal is to watch/rent every horror film in history weed out the crap and then just have a comprehensive library of every good horror film in history on tap. I figure about 10% of horror movies are actually good. The IMDB lists 9023 titles under Horror so I guess I'm looking at about 900 DVD's. But that does count documentaries and TV series’ so the number may be less. Man I need a life:)

    I'm exactly the opposite.I feel there are 90% good and 10% bad.:)

    I don't think I can buy that many DVD's, I'm already broke. I'll stick with my 10% theory:)
