    I don't know if this is the right forum, but does anyone know why National Lampoon's Animal House is NOT available on DVD? I see that at one time it may have been, but I can't for the life of me find it. It's one of my favorite movies.

    It's Out Of Print (OOP), meaning that it once was available, but isn't anymore. Sometimes you can get lucky and find one at a B&M (Brick and Mortar)...but I'm pretty sure this has been OOP for a while. You could always check eBay or the For Sale/Trade forum for anyone selling a copy.

    Animal House SE would be purchased by me immediately. Hope someone figures out consumers want it and does a release.

    Sometime this year would be really nice.

    Maybe Animal House: Ultimate Edition?
    They are just sitting on it... they HAVE to be planning SOMETHING with such a big title.

    I was just able to pick up a copy (on accident) at a used CD/DVD store called CD Warehouse for $14.99! I couldnt believe it.

    There were 2 issues of the DVD so far; the first is to be avoided like the plague. Either go for the SE or wait for it to be reissued (can't be that long, since the SE has been out of print for a while).

    I've got the SE, it's well worth it if you can find it. I got lucky on Half.com.

    I bought the Collectors Edition at best buy when it came out, $14.99. That wasn't more then 2 years ago.

    I've seen a few copies of the Collector's Edition at a Newbury Comics store near me (in Burlington MA). I know that doesn't really help the original poster (who's in NJ), but it means there are still copies out there on shelves...

    I got mine a few months ago through Columbia House. They seem to still have a supply of Animal House DVDs available.

    I'm sure I read on this forum recently that a re-release is in fact in the works. Sorry, I can't remember the specifics.

    Didn't Animal House come out in 1978? That would make this year, 2003, the 25th Anniversary. Hmmm. . . [​IMG]

    I bought an R4 copy. it seems to have the exact same extras as the R1 CE, and is still available at ezydvd.com.au. I think R2 has the same thing, but R2 is usually more expensive than R4.

    It looks like Animal House: SE is STILL available through Columbia House, but only the TV Series portion, not Columbia House DVD. Check out this link:

    (You may have to copy and paste the link into your browser window as it is very long)
