another one I noticed on my shelf: John Frankenheimer's Eco Terror masterpiece (
) Prophecy from 1979...still cheap on Amazon Marketplace. Those damned Acid Rain bears scared the crap out of me as a kid!
Wait... you belittle me for liking Race With the Devil
but you yourself like Prophecy
I wasn't belittling you! I was belittling dicks charging $50 for Race on Amazon....it's a fun little movie, but not worth THAT. that's all I said. Same goes for Prophecy....it's a stupid but fun bit of 70s schlock and worth about the $5 you can still buy it for. But it'll probably end up $50 too, which is sad. The whole thing is just sad.
I would never belittle anyone for liking anything. I like some incredibly stupid shit and have zero room to talk on that front. But it just amazes me how some incredibly average to lame movies can command such prices when they go OOP. Hell, I almost bought Race With the Devil a few times, but never found it for less than $10...had I seen it in a $5 bin it would be mine. A good example of this silliness is the ultimate in schlock: Gargoyles - a flick that terrified me in the early 70s when I was little, and I wanted but never got around to buying. Now it's $75 and up. ridiculous.
No no, I understand, just playing along.
Clearly, though, smaller cultish films have more of a tendency to skyrocket in price when unavailable, which is kind of unfortunate... these are the kinds of titles you love to share with people.
