you will all know that when shop on amazon they suggest titles you could be intrested in ,based on previous searches.
one of the ones it suggested to me was 'BODY BAGS'..a trio of films introduced by john carpenter,playing a mortuary worker,explaining the gruesome deaths of the bodies currently in the mortuary.
GREAT i thought ,haven't seen that for ages ..the asking price ?? £55
yes £55,asked by 3 different shops.
cant be right so i asked crisch in Canada to look it up over there...$110
turns out that only a few dvd's were produced by artisan and now its 'out of print'. Lionsgate bought the rights and have never released it ,so its rare.
but is it worth this much?
my answer was to buy a dutch version on ebay for £10,the films region 2,new,uncut and in english,i just have to edit the synopsis on the case to read in english.
of course this can work the other way round,a while ago i wanted 'crossroads' an old ralph'karate kid'machio film,and got it delivered from the states for under a £5 on amazon,while some people were promoting them as rare on e bay and selling them from £10-£30 plus delivery.now they start at 99p.
so its only rare as long as no one else is selling it cheaper,and someone is willing to pay the price.
HOW MUCH WOULD YOU PAY? AND WHAT FOR?
Sorry for my English, i'm from Leicester innit?
