The local weekly car boot sale proves a great place to buy cheap movies on DVD; the only problem is that, on most occasions, it is the more popular titles on offer—big budget blockbusters that hold little appeal for a fan of obscure cult oddities like myself. Every now and then, though, a good rummage through the most unlikely of stalls reveals some real gems.
Like today, for example...
A little old lady with a stall had a cardboard box in which I could only see sets of Simpsons and Futurama. Being a fan of both shows, I thought I'd take a closer look in the box and, lo and behold, I discovered some surprising movies hidden within! For just one pound apiece I snagged these three excellent DVDs: The Deluxe Widescreen Edition of Ruggero Deodato's notorious video nasty Cannibal Holocaust; The Stendahl Syndrome, one of the few Argento films I have yet to review; and the Synapse Special Edition of Jim Van Bebber's Deadbeat at Dawn!
To say I'm chuffed with my purchases is an understatement!
