Badass buy: The Evil Dead Thorn EMI Clamshell VHS (sealed)
























This past year as I've gotten back into VHS collecting, I've slowly been building my 
Thorn EMI / HBO Cannon VIDEO 
collection. They produced a pretty eclectic group of films on white clamshell cases back in the VHS heyday and ones that I've always been drawn to. I just love the clamshell look and annoyingly, the U.S. didn't make it a habit of releasing a lot of VHS this way, rather on cheap cardboard slipcases. I don't collect everything they put out though, just films I actually thoroughly enjoy. And I'm new to this and still learning of what there output was and when.

 I didn't even know Thorn EMI had The Evil Dead under there belt until when I came across it recently for a very cheap price. The beauty about this purchase, besides getting it for very cheap, is that it's still SEALED!!! Sweet! The only damage seems to be a large tear to the shrink wrap with some smaller ones here and there. But most importantly, the actual clamshell and plastic are untouched.
