Yes I did, indeed!
Don't Go In The Woods Alone
What do you think of these?
It's been probably 15 years since I've seen any of them!

Hated The Unseen when I saw it in '82, but it's not so bad. We were expecting something scarier. I saw Don't Go in the Woods in '82 at the cinema with Hills Have Eyes. Low-rent, cheap, cheesy and sleazy...it's a fun one!

I only rented them because they weren't on region 1 dvd yet and I wanted to see if they still held up.

I have fond memories of watching Twisted Nightmare (along with Berserker the same night) on tape back in the days of video rentals. Even though we had a blast making fun of it... still loved every cheesy minute of it. I also remember the old TWE tape was suffering from bad audio.
I'd buy it on DVD if they ever release it on disc.

Hey, what's wrong with VHS?! :D I still scour the used VHS bins for a forgotten gem.
I've seen The Unseen. It's fairly sleazy and "Flounder" from Animal House plays a killer tard. Nothing special, but it does have a few effective scenes.
I kinda enjoy watching slashers on VHS. If the tape's not worn out it gives a raw feel of the movie. Hi-Fi VHS sound is also quite good, IMO, and much better than the Dolby 2.0/mono of the majority of low-budget movies slapped onto DVD *from my experiences*. But the main draw is of course, original cover art and buying them used for $1 to $3. :cool:
