Hit up Best Buy after that-- trying to exchange my defective DVD of Dr. Phibes and Dr. Phibes Rides Again. Did so, only to discover that the second one is defective as well. I'm guessing that the whole pressing is defective, because using some handy analytical tools, it appears that the encoding in the first VOB is bad.
However, I did manage to pick up Count Yorga, Vampire and The Return of Count Yorga (legitimately for research, believe it or not), as well as The Haunting (also for research) and Fear Dot Com (AKA shit dot com)(not for research so much as because it was in the $5.99 bin). Several others I was looking for and could not find, including The Addams Family, which I was sure would be available.
I may have to hit up Amazon.com after all.
I also broke down and picked up The Best of Girls Gone Wild. Also for research. Really.
Just a different kind of research.
Aw, screw you. I'm stuck in Des Moines, it's December, and I'm bored and lonely.
