Speaking of Clownhouse (1989)

.
Here's a cover scan of MGM's canceled DVD. As stated before, the studio pulled this from release in late 2003 at the very last minute due to complaints of the family of star Nathan Forrest Winters. The first copies leaked went for hundreds at auction, but eventually certain sellers on Amazon and eBay had decent amounts saved from recycling (or maybe MGM just didn't care) going for what this disc originally retailed for anyway. That's where I picked up this still sealed copy. Currently this release seems to have gone back up in value...

I never got a DVD copy, but I do have an old VHS that I got from the video store where I worked three hundred years ago. And then all that shit came out about Victor Salva and Nathan Forest Winters. I covet that copy like it's my child. I actually kind of want to watch it now. It's still a great movie, minus all the pedophilia. I don't know how to not make that sound not fucked up, but you know what I mean.

I hate myself for wanting to see this film.

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
