    Mine would have to be my JAPANESE ARGENTO HEAT BOX SIGNED BY DARIO ARGENTO himself over in Canada this past August. Amazing.

    How about you guys? Pictures would be cool.

    This isn't film per se, but it is the most prized thing in my DVD collection. The 8 disc Yearbook Edition of Freaks & Geeks signed by creator Paul Feig.

    My Dawn of the Dead: Ultimate Edition box set autographed in-person by George A. Romero, Dario Argento, and Roy Frumkes. Got all three autographs at the Festival of Fear this past August. Probably ran into DeathDealer while I was there without knowing it, haha.

    One film find I just got into my collection I really really like is an original 35mm trailer for Friday the 13th Part 3-D.

    I love my Dazed & Confused Criterion, my Ultimate Dawn of the Dead, and my Director's Cut Army of Darkness (complete with impossibly ripped Bruce Campbell cover and numbered on the back) discs. Nothing rare by any means, but I love 'em!

    If you saw a guy picked on a fucked and plaatic kid, then yes, you did.

    Videodrome criterion DVD would be my choice has a prized possession. Now as far as my rarest DVD I'd have to say THE MIDNIGHT HOUR.

    The most valued DVD I have isn't a horror movie. It is Times Square (Anchor Bay) since it has become so impossibly rare nowadays. I guess I could include my original VCI VHS of Screams of a Winter Night and The Beyond tin from AB.

    I also treasure my Virgins and Vampires book signed by Jean Rollin. I have #043 from a run of 300 signed copies.

    Not a DVD, but horror related: My Night of the Living Dead official soundtrack LP signed by Judith O'Dea. She told me at the time that she'd only seen two or three in her life.

    I bought mine at a mall record store way back in 1982 or 1983 I think.

    I also like my Humanoids from The Deep uncut, letterboxed Japanese DVD. For some reason it is called Monster on this release.

    I don't have that many 'special' DVDs, so it's probably gotta be #200/500 of the limited ed, signed-by-many, 'I Drink Your Blood'.

    I own quite a few "rare" DVD's, but my most personally prized would be my Riget I & II Four-Disc box set from Denmark.

    My most prized DVD's are pretty much my favorite movies (ie Halloween 2 disc limited edtion, Dawn of the Dead Ultimate, Suspiria 3 disc limited edition, etc, etc)...but my most prized possessions overall would be my horror one sheet collection, many of which have multiple signatures.

    God, hard one. On DVD? I bave lots and lots of prized stuff - the Cronenberg Criterions, the pristine Argento and Fulci's. Then there's all the silent stuff, the Laughton Hunchback - the Chaney one - the Barrymore Jeckyll - the Rathbone Sherlock Holmes films.......

    But my collection of Monster Mag is really special. I even have issue 2. If I evr find a large scanner, I'm going to put them online.

    Right at this moment it would have the be The Vampira Show DVD and signed Vampira photo I got direct from Maila Nurmi this past Halloween. I normally don't go for signed stuff but something told me too and I'm glad I did while she was still around to appreciate the patronage.
