Default Costs of acquiring prints

How much does it cost on average for Shameless to acquire film prints of the movies they release?
I'm asking this because I'm thinking of starting my own company sometime in the near-future and releasing rare euro-horror films and I was wondering how much it might on average cost to buy the rights for these types of films.

Good Question I've always wondered that,

Me too. What I was surprised to learn was that a distribution company may buy the rights to distribute a film, even if there are no suitable materials to use.

I've always wondered how much the complete process would cost from scratch buying the rights, the whole process in between and then getting it out into the shops etc etc,

I would have thought that you would first do some enquiries and research on whether suitable materials exist before licensing a title. It's probably not as simple as that, but logic dictates that that would be the sensible thing to do.

You clearly had nothing to do with VIPCO Daemonia.

Yep, that's what I always thought, too, but apparently it is not always the case!

Does anyone know how one would go about locating who owns rights to what? I did some research into this last year, but I found it almost impossible to locate any information. I had assumed there would just be some sort of registry, almost like a patents office type affair or some sort of trade organisation/publication.
