It's worth a watch just for the finale. Up there with Sleepaway Camp in memorability.

My biggest memory with Sleepaway Camp was my tremendous disappointment :yee

I myself enjoyed it, and Zombie warned me that you have a distaste for it:p

I'm far more of a renter than a buyer.  I personally don't see the sense of buying for more money the same thing you can get cheaper if you rent, especially when one doesn't know yet if they'll like the movie, as appears the habit of a lot of folk.  But I've occasionally bought what I couldn't get otherwise-if it's reasonably inexpensive.  And the irony that comes right now is that I've spent some money at Wal-Mart's  $5 bin just a few days ago-THE ORPHANAGE, even more ironic when you think of what I'd said above, in that I could've rented it plenty of times and had optimism about it but for some unknown reason, kept putting it off.  I figured at the bin that I'd better jump right in and jump without hesitation, a 4 in I pack featuring THE VAMPIRE CONSPIRACY,  FIST OF THE VAMPIRE,  CURSE OF THE WOLF and BACHELOR PARTY AT THE BUNGALOW OF DEATH, and a collection of about 20 Crown-International flicks from the sixties and early seventies.  The only one I've watched at all yet is the CI collection.  Quite liked TRIP WITH THE TEACHER and funny thing, disliked BLOOD OF DRACULA'S CASTLE when I saw it theatrically decades ago, but this time, considered putting it on my vampire runners-up list.

I'm a buyer, without a doubt. Not only can I find movies to buy for the price of renting (or even cheaper), but I no longer rent because I don't support Netflix or Redbox.

I gave Redbox a shot once, and was charged a late fee when I went to turn the movie in. The machine would not accept the disc, telling me "Sorry, this Redbox is full". I didn't have time to drive all day looking for another redbox. So I had to wait an extra day and was charged again. I could've just bought the stupid ass movie for a dollar more, instead, and owned it for life.

I don't support Netflix, because if I'm in the mood for a certain movie tonight, I'm still going to have to wait for it to arrive in the mail. Who knows if I'll even be in the mood to watch a movie at that point? There's no spontaneity with a Netflix membership. I also don't want Netflix reaching their grubby little hands into my bank account and taking out 9 dollars (or however much they charge) a month. I've already got my bank account now charging me for having a bank account. I've also had issues with contracts like this, before, where I've cancelled my membership and they continuously take money, anyway. Also, with a Netflix membership, I'd feel like I'm on the clock. Sure, you can turn them in whenever you want, but there could be a month where I'll only have time or only want to watch one movie. And I don't want to rent 1 movie, maybe even no movies, for 9 bucks.

Owning DVDs works great for me because, not only do I own nearly 1,000 movies, but I can pull them out and watch them whenever I damn well please with no strings attatched. I get them as cheap as renting, and if I happen to despise the movie (which has only happened a handful of times) I can make an even trade at my local Pawn Shops for a better movie. And when I need to return the movie to the movie company, I do it by simply putting the disc in the case and putting the case on my shelf. If I have a couple of friends over and we're in the mood to watch Beverly Hills Ninja, I won't have the ass hassle of waiting a week for USPS to drop it off, and then eventually another ass hassle of mailing it back.

If I were a renter, I'd have spent more money renting than buying. I probably wouldn't own many of the movies I love, which means I'd have to rent them over and over if I want to see them again. Why rent the same movie over and over when you can buy it once, watch it when you please and keep it for life?

I'm just not a fan of putting money into something that I have to give back. Do you know how many movies people have bought FOR Netflix just to eventually rent later?

Again, Instantwatch.  Faster than even going down to someplace and renting.  The selection's been getting bigger too.

Not as much as people used to buy movies.  Buying's been on a big downslide.  I'll still buy movies, I think I average 4-5 a month, maybe, but do you know how pissed off I would be had I BOUGHT a lot of the shitty movies I rented that pissed me off at their shittiness? I don't blind buy often, unless I get good vibes.

I've never rented from Redbox.  I once belonged to Netflix but that's in the past.

Oops, my bad-BACHELOR PARTY AT THE BUNGALOW OF "THE DAMNED".  Wasn't looking at the box when I posted.--------In light of past experience, I don't know WHAT possessed me to watch BLOOD OF DRACULA'S CASTLE so early in the game, but I'm glad I did.

This message is in regards to the long posts from Cool Breeze and Jason.

I use to rent, mainly movies I had no desire to see at the Cinema and never wanted to add to my collection. Now I quit renting after the massive flood swiped out the only place I liked to hang out at.

I guess i'm one of the lucky one's with various Pawn Shops and of course the Video Store with the Monthly $2.50 bin and the wait 4 weeks and get new released movies for $7.50. I never pay more than $10 for a movie, (unless it's a special occassion like going to the Mall.) Due to the fact that I can get 4 or 5 movies for $10 or less.
