So everyday we get numerous movie requests by customers and collector's who just about gave up on ever finding certain titles on DVD and much less hard to track down on even VHS. We always say don't ever give up because you never know!
We don't discard any of these requests by you even if we can't track them down at the moment. If we don't respond immediately, it doesn't mean we've given up.
We've just obtained the following movies (again buyers requests) if you're interested, they are now up and available for purchase.
1. "DEAFULA" 1975
yes, it sounds just like what you're thinking! "Dracula"..."Deafula". This is the first full-length sign language horror movie with a vampire theme! There are no subtitles unfortunately, but every now and then a voice over narrator will be heard to help you follow the story. Pretty interesting!
2. Ernest Rides again 1993
Jim Varney made a bunch of these "Buffoonish" "Ernest" movies from the late 80s early 90s, they weren't very good, but we can't deny they were still very funny! Turn your brain off for an hour and a half and just have some fun with this one :)
3. Clara's Heart 1988
Whoopi Goldberg is at her best in these types of movies! Everyone remembers "The Color Purple" but can't seem to remember this one.
After her baby daughter dies, Leona Hart (Kathleen Quinlan) goes to Jamaica to mourn. She meets no-nonsense housekeeper Clara (Whoopi Goldberg) and brings her back to Baltimore to look after her son, David (Neil Patrick Harris).
That's all for now. The list will be updated again very soon, don't forget to bookmark it!
