Yard Sale Motherload: Titan Find


On my way home from work this morning I stopped by a yard sale. Nothing too appealing, loads of baby clothes, which seems to be the point of most family yard sales. Just as I was about leave, a fleet of guys carrying boxes came from the garage.

Horror tapes, a shitload, for only a buck a piece! Folks, I almost shat myself. I didn't get them all, lots of stuff commonly found on DVD, but in the end I walked away with one of the coolest finds I ever stumbled upon.



24 Anchor Bay tapes with most belonging to the Hammer Horror Collection, even the English and German versions of Herzog's Nosferatu and complete Ilsa series:


A few SWVs and other oddities (finally found the Thorn/EMI ROLD clamshell) :


Some MGM Midnite Movies and F13s:


Bunch of randoms (went apeshit here, but they're nearly all in like new shape)

Then I went over to the swap meet and found a few (Foxy Oil Wrestling...mmmmmmmm)

dude, this article is like one of those "Penthouse Letters" entries, where the guy writes "I never thought this would happen to me, but..." - only in this case, intended specifically for horror collector-nerds. Nice picks!! Congrats!

Wow. Big score - ROTLD, the Fridays, Phantasm 2, Surf Nazis Must Die.

Never saw Up From the Depths, so I need to find that one being a shark movie enthusiast and all.

"Dammit, having trouble finding space!"

How do you organize your VHS? Anything like how you do for DVD/Blu-ray or do you just keep them in boxes or piled up in a corner?

I thought I was the only one who still bought VHS. :P

I love these stories! Not only Return of the Living Dead, but also Motorpsycho! Ultra sweet.
