Default Superstition (1982)

So, I finally remembered the name of the flick with circular saw blade scene that came in one of those wonderful golden VTC big boxes when I was a teenager and figure I'll see if it's about for a DVD nostalgia trip.

Can anyone fill me in on why the UK DVD (Momentum: still the same cover image as back in '83 I'm glad to see!) is hitting collector's item prices? Is it just because it's deleted or does it offer something more than the US DVD?

I'll hold off on purchasing in the hope that one of you fine and knowledgeable types might have some info!

Love this (admittedly a bit silly) "supernatural slasher" variation. Gets more fun with every viewing!

The Momentum disc has no extras whatsoever, all the Anchor Bay disc has is the movie trailer and a better cover than the R2.I've always had a soft spot for Superstition since I saw the VTC video years back, it's quite atmospheric and features a few imaginative kills(especially the girl who's head is staked to the floor).It seems to have built up quite a cult following over the years, I'll have to give it a re-watch sometime.

I have the Momentum DVD of it. Awesome film! It's cheaper to buy the pre-cert tape than the UK DVD of it!

It's OOP now,that's why it's extortion.
Better off with the ABUS disc.
Momentum's disc was fine,but not at crazy prices!

One of the best low-budget horrors of the eighties.Love it.

Super Happy

I was up for buying Momentum's U.K. DVD when it was originally available until i discovered the ABUS version with the inclusion of a trailer so my money headed stateside!

This is the movie where one character gets cut in half by a malevolent window frame isn't it?
