    Oldest unwatched DVD in your collection

    My 'to watch' pile grows constantly, as I'm sure almost everyone else's does. With busy lives, it can be easy to acquire a DVD and see it slowly get passed by in favour of newer acquisitions or old favourites.

    I'm ashamed to say that back in 2001, I bought the Tartan Asia Extreme release of Myung-Se Lee's NOWHERE TO HIDE, which I still haven't watched. {Embarrassed face.} Although I've still got some DVDs I bought at the birth of the format in 1998/1999, I reckon this is the oldest unwatched DVD in my collection. What's yours?

    Way back when I bought one of those cool German hardbox versions of a Franco film... something about Dracula.... Dracula Prisoner Of Frankenstien maybe. But it was a clothed variation though. Somehow clothed, sanitised Franco lacks appeal.

    Ah, was it that X-Rated release of EROTIC RITES OF FRANKENSTEIN? Shame the 'unclothed' version of that movie hasn't appeared on DVD yet.

    That sounds familiar- all my DVDs are in storage at the moment so I can't dig it out to check. Really how can you release a clean, clothed version of a film called Erotic Rites Of Frankenstein?

    Off the top of my head... The Fountain was a day 1 purchase for me. It's still sitting on the shelf, sealed, unwatched and unloved.

    Not counting dvd-rs I'm going to have to go with SLITHER which I picked up at Big Lots in early 2011.

    I still have not watched Luc Bessons Angel-A which I bought when it was new. What might that be? 4-5 years ago?

    More than likely it's Nico Mastorakis' THE WIND. Got it from an FYE (which has since closed) in 02 or so. I suspect I will go to my grave with the seal still unbroken.
