Bargain titles abound!…

  

 

   (First post of the new Blog and I’m already breaking the rules! Oh well- my blog so I guess that’s OK. Besides, this IS a pretty sweet deal) Make sure to check out your local Big Lots as soon as you can- they have a hundred or so MGM titles at 3 bucks each! Along with the ‘straight’ catalog ones (things like “Salvador”, “Bright Lights, Big City” (a REAL guilty favorite of mine!), “Semi-Tough” and 5-6 of the “Pink Panther” movies, they have a bunch of genre titles. From my sweep of three different stores I ended up getting:

 

   Konga

   A Bucket of Blood

   Howling 2- Your Sister is a Werewolf

   Amityville 1, 2 & 3 (AND the 2005 Remake as well!)

   Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) -(BOTH versions of the artwork for all you TRUE collectors out there. Note though that this ISN’T the ‘Special Edition’ issue)

   The Brood

   Rollerball (both the 1975 version and the remake)

   Scanners

   Burnt Offerings

   ‘X’- The Man with X-Ray Eyes (Midnight Movies)

   Sinbad of the Seven Seas (with Lou Ferrigno!)

   Frogs

   The Fall of the House of Usher (Vincent Price!) (Midnight Movies)

   The Dunwich Horror (Midnight Movies)

   Flesh + Blood

   The Fog (both the 1980 Special Edition and the remake)

   Body and Soul (Leon Isaac Kennedy)

   Swamp Thing (the recent re-release; NOT the ‘pulled’ “nudity” version)

 

   I’m guessing that this has something to do with the recent Warner Brothers buy-out of the MGM library; as they say on late-night TV ads “Our loss is your gain”- but it’s a shame that it seems like now some of these titles will probably not be in circulation for awhile. I would recommend that you go out and buy up at least any of the “Midnight Movie” titles that you find- some of those have come and gone and end up being hard-to-get collector’s items down the road. Oh, and get “Frogs” too- every house in America should own THAT movie…
