This is in my top movies from childhood. I watched it on repeat once I was able to record it off HBO or where and didn’t have to it rent it weekly. I later had a tape without the sleeve I picked up who knows where and watched it non stop through college and still have today. It’s got a lot of melted clay and random markings from art school all over it.
I decided to put an eBay alert for the LaserDisc and this VHS popped up for a few bucks. Typically more than I would pay for a tape, which is anything above a single digit number, but I noticed it looked sealed but wasn’t advertised as such so I figured I’d take the gamble and BAM, a sealed copy of one of the best I could have in my collection arrived at the door.
