Thread: Betamax movie values?

  1. #1

    Default Betamax movie values?

    Hi, I am a avid horror and rare vhs collector. Have always wanted to get horror Betamax tapes as well, but they arent that common to come across, at least around here. But today i visited a Goodwill, of all places, and found a treasure trove of tapes. A lot of them being horror, and others being cult/popular movies. I know that in the vhs scene rare tapes can go for some good cash, depending on the movie, and who released it. I was wondering if the same was true with betamax tapes?

    for horror i found-
    Friday the 13th part 2 and 3.
    Children of the corn.
    Jaws 1,2,3 and The Revenge.
    Halloween -Media release, original yellow, white and black box.
    Halloween 3.
    The Thing.
    Phantasm.
    Prom Night.
    Poltergeist 1 and 2.
    Splatter University.
    The Dark.
    Terror in the aisle.
    Lifeforce.
    Dark Forces.
    Sole Survivor.
    Mutant.
    Wolfen.
    and finally The Texas Chainsaw Massacre released by Wizard Video(Wizard is one of the rarest video companies and almost anything by them is impossible to find,so im assuming Beta is even rarer than vhs, vhs TCM can hit or pass $100.)


    I also found some really good classics and cult movies.

    Bedtime for bonzo (ronald reagan movie)
    E.T.
    Casablanca.
    Xanadu.
    The Deer Hunter.
    Suspicion. (Cary Grant)
    King Kong.
    Airplane 1 and 2.
    Saturday Night Fever.
    Staying Alive.
    Grease.
    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
    Star Trek 2 and 4.
    The Wild One.
    Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
    National Lampoons Vacation.
    Caddyshack.
    Rebel without a cause.
    The Deep.
    Mogambo. (Clark Gable)
    Porky's 1,2 and Porky's revenge.
    Rocky 2,3,and 4.
    Blade Runner.
    The Poisiden Adventure.
    The African Queen.
    Tora Tora Tora.


    I dont own a beta player, Hoping to get one soon, wondering what a good one would be, that would also be affordable.
