A cardboard box is worth $50 to you?
Yeah…the more I think about it, the more this just seems absolutely ridiculous. Ebay bidding is one thing, but there is no reason that a well-established movie releasing company, like Full Moon, should be selling a cardboard box and a dubbed tape (an antiquated format) for $50 a pop + shipping. Especially when they just "found" these big boxes in a warehouse". There is essentially minimal cost to produce these. This seems like a complete cash grab aimed at exploiting the current VHS trend.
Subtract $25 from the overall price and I may be interested again.
