No pics, but a few years back, in about 2004/2005/2006(?), after going 'all-DVD', Blockbuster bizarrely started encouraging people to trade-in their old VHS tapes. The resulting stacks of VHS vids were then sold off at 99p, buy one get one free (I sh1t you not).
As I was a heavy eBay seller at the time, I struck gold on certain £20ers like War Of The Buttons
and that Chris Rea flick, La Passione
, but on a certain Tuesday afty, I bought the *actual* 'video nasty' The Werewolf And The Yeti
(on the rare "Cinehollywood" label), 99p BOGOF!!!!
I watched both (Terror's decent, Werewolf... sucks massively) and plonked them on eBay. Werewolf... went for about £45, Terror went for an amazing £91, even though it's not a proper nasty! I'm not bullsh!tting here, either.
Also, back in about 1992, I found a Cinehollywood Devil Hunter
original for £2.50 at Wakefield market, only to foolishly swap it for some lesser pre-certs from another collector who exploited my then-17 year old naivete. It was worth a bomb. What a p!sser.
