    :lol: Yep, got all of those as well, and a German widescreen import disc. The HD2DVD version also looks pretty nice.

    Is The Gate II even on DVD (officially) anywhere? I love that movie.

    I don't have any super-duper rare stuff, or any autographs sadly (but damn it, I only live an hour away from Baltimore and still haven't made it to HorrorFind Weekend yet!), but I'd have to say my favorites are the Blind Dead coffin box, the Sleepaway Camp box (the Red Cross version, of course), the 3 disc Suspiria Limited Edition, The Beyond and Maniac LE Tins, the Wizard of Oz Deluxe Edition, that came with a replica copy of the shooting script, and last but not least, the Star Wars Trilogy Limited Edition Collector's Set on VHS from '97.

    It is in Canada, but you can probably still get the DVD pretty cheap. I think I ordered it off ebay about 6-7 years ago...

    Mine would all be laserdiscs. It could be the DTS editions, or other rarities. I like that I have all the Kurosawa Criterion discs.

    Autographed LDs are a favorite too:
    The Haunting - Robert Wise (deceased)
    Star Wars - Phil Brown (Uncle Owen)(deceased)
    Stendhal Syndrome - Asia Argento
    An American Werewolf in London - John Landis and David Naughton
    Dawn of the Dead - George Romero, Tom Savini, Ken Foree
    Phantasm - Don Coscarelli, Angus Scrimm, Reggie Bannister, Gloria Hendry (III only)
    Animal House - John Landis and Stephen Furst
    Texas Chainsaw Massacre - Gunnar Hansen and Edwin Neal
    Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie - Michael Nelson and Kevin Murphy
    Reservoir Dogs - Michael Madsen

    that's just off the top of my head...

    Hummmmmmmm.

    I'm happy to own a copy of Thursday, which might be the rarest mass release disc I own.
    Psychos in Love, 176/300, although it's not a favorite movie.
    My HD2DVD of Night of the Creeps brings much joy to my life, as do HD2DVD versions of The Gate, & Child's Play.
    Unfolded, unnumbered and autographed by Bruce Campbell cover for Army of Darkness 2 disc LE.
    The Dawn of the Dead poster book I won here a couple years ago.
    Dubs of Galaxy of Terror (widescreen and beutiful from Italian disc) and Intruder SE.
    Japanese Boondock Saints with exclusive commentary used to be top of the list. After seeing "Overnight" it's hard to laugh along Duffy, as he's a fucking retarded asshole I can't feel sorry for.

    Suspiria 3 disc, original anchor bay releases of Dawn (US theatrical cut) and Day, all 3 dario argento double features, The Departed LE Target store exclusive w/shooting script, Alien Quadrilogy, From Beyond...those are probably my most coveted dvds...nothing signed though. Actually, my most prized horror collectible is my framed original Return Of the Living Dead one-sheet. :)

    Probably three of my DVDs signed by three of my favorite directors:

    Blue Velvet signed by David Lynch,

    The Fly signed by David Cronenberg,

    and The Thing signed by John Carpenter.

    Meeting those people and getting my stuff signed is worth way more than any ultra-rare DVD I own.

    I have these, but don't consider them "prized". I think Silence has had better releases now. Straw Dogs is a VERY nice set, but it's not a favorite film.

    I'm glad to see that you enjoy The Dollars Wooden box. Nice to see it has a good home.My most prized DVD would be Nightmare on Elm Street signed By Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp, John Saxon, Jsu Garcia, Ronee Blakey, Charles Fleischer, and Amanda Wyss. Savini was nice enough to get my copy of NOES signed for me. Thanks once again for hooking me up Savini. Here is a pic:

    Those are a few more that I won't part with anytime soon! :evil:

    I also remember getting the Halloween "Limited Edition" 2-disc with the hologram cover CHEAP on ebay when it was selling for about tons more money. The seller put the buy-it-now at only $10, and it was mint!

    My Scarecrows DVD. Because I waited for over a decade for the damned thing to get a DVD release... (Of course, when Night of the Creeps finally makes it to DVD, it will become my new favorite...)
