Over the last few years I've been picking up a lot of B-movies, especially in the horror and sci-fi genres. A lot of them don't have DVD releases, as you said. Recently I picked up half a dozen amateur made horror films, and a couple of them are out of Syracuse, NY. I'd like to sell these to a collector, but also be able to digitally preserve them since they are so obscure.
Looking for a cheap, working VCR. Ours occasionally likes to eat up tapes and I would rather start using a different one than risk the chance of damaging tapes. Don't want to spend a fortune, but do want to make sure it is in good working order.
