Good luck. I've got TCM on VHS, but clearly, there's no way I'd part with it.

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

Which tape do you have?

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

Well, if you had caught me about three years ago... lol

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

A few more tapes found, but many left. Have a spare? Dont hesitate to contact me. Cheers!

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

The Astral tape is high up on my wishlist. Have a spare? Dont hesitate to contact me, will pay good money.

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

Only have the Jessica Biel one in VHS. Sorry, it's a keeper for me.
Original version I have is on DVD.

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

Thanks for your reply.

I´m only after Hoopers original from 74, not intersted in the sequels nor the remake.

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

Yeah I thought so. smile

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

Two more tapes found!

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

Found the french version from Astral - Massacre A La Scie. Now i´m only looking for the english version.

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

Just ran across this as I am currently watching TCM as I type this. Is there a difference between each version? Or are they relatively rare prints? Why collect this specific movie on VHS? Other than the fact that it's a kick ass movie.

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

It's called being a completist.  For many years I was the same with Dawn of the Dead.  I wanted a copy of every VHS and, later, DVD release, domestic AND foreign, and had nearly a dozen and a half copies at one point.

Some would call completism obsession.  Completists simply call it being a collector. lol

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

Fair enough, I get it, I've done the same with certain albums. I was just wondering if there was something specific about TCM.

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

It is an obssession, without a doubt smile  Its a kick ass movie, probably the best horror movie of all time, and its fun to collect. Expensive but fun. And there´s so many different versions of this movie out there, vhs, beta, laserdisc, dvd etc etc....

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

Still searching smile

Re: Wanted: Texas Chainsaw Massacre vhs/beta...

Gooner, I know a great guy on FB that deals in rare and hard to find VHS. I know he has a Ebay store as well. I can ask him if he has or can find what your looking for if you like!.
