    Up until Weird Al's Video Collection went back into print recently, the old one was commanding prices of $100 or so.

    I just bought a sealed copy of the Criterion version of Salo from a local store for $16.99! Guess they didn't know what they had... Does anyone know the best way to go about selling it, or if it's really still worth anything?

    How can I tell the difference between the old and newer version of Devil's advocate in stores?

    Nilsson's The Point is fetching some high prices on eBay ($15 list price - usually going for $40-$70 when the auction isn't shut down.) Much like Duel, this title was scheduled for release last August, but was withheld at the last minute (a distribution rights problem is the story I heard.) Somehow, copies managed to trickle it into the pipeline and Ebay profiteers are making a killing on it. I would wait on this one, though. Supposedly the transfer stinks and the Nilsson estate is involved in making an authorized version (from original elements) to be released sometime in 2004.

    Almost all of the titles in the original Universal Classic Monster Series are hard to find. Once again, the word is that Universal will re-release these down the road.

    Finally, the copies of Ed Wood from a year ago that made it out the door were commaning high prices from collectors. With a new release right around the corner, prices for this should drop dramatically.

    OK - Why did they remove the sculpture from "Devils Advocate"?

    I assume it's the one that was in his office behind the desk?

    I got a Horror Documentary DVD entitled "Masters of Horror" that is supposedly 1 of 5 in the world. It's pretty cool having interviews with and Hosted by Bruce Campbell. Wes Craven, John Carpenter, Guillermo Del Toro, George Romero, Dario Argento, John Landis, Rick Baker, Tom Savini, Gunnar Hansen, Edwin Neal,Stuart Gordon, and Tobe Hooper. I imagine it could feth a decent price if I was interested in selling.

    Al,

    As stated on the box of the first (unaltered) version:

    'The large white sculpture of human forms on the wall of John Milton's penthouse in "Devil's Advocate" is not connected in any way and was not endorsed by the sculptor Frederick Hart or the Washington National Cathedral, joint copyright owners of the Cathedral sculpture "Ex Nihilo" in Washington, DC.'

    You see? [​IMG]
    Bad English, IMO, by the way.

    How about Fox's "Sunrise" DVD? I guess it's not officially out of print, but it is a pain in the ass to get a copy of - I saw copies fetching high double digits and low triple digits on eBay over the summer.
