Split Second

Years ago I had a rather enormous collection of VHS movies. And like most people at some point I started converting them over to DVD. After some considerable time and expense all were converted or repurchased, well, most.

For those who are familiar with the movie Split Second it needs no introduction, it’s a classic. For those who aren’t familiar with the movie and love thriller/horror/comedies it is a must have for any respectable movie lover. I won’t bother giving you a breakdown of the movie as you can easily get that from Wikipedia. For a long time you couldn’t buy this movie on DVD for less that $200. Even the VHS was selling for $20-40, and as we all know you’re lucky if the local pawn shop will give you 10 cents for a VHS, so at the price of $30 average it was gold standard.

I eventually found an affordable all region Blu-ray of it from Germany for about $25, the movie is in German but you can switch it to English. Then, skip ahead a couple years, and WOW someone was selling it on DVD, in English, brand new, factory sealed with security stickers, for around $20. Well, you know, I had to buy it.
