ive been watching video nastys and horror movies for years and love them so much i collected them and sell them. i do like the special fx in the movies and the horror of what will happen next to the people in the movies.
video nastys of the 1980s are very collectable and can hold a value of ££££ to any horror collector, the dpp39(department of public proscution) were the ones who tryed very hard to ban the video nastys in the early 1980s. 39 videos were forbidden , others made the list but were not unofficial -but only 39 were.

look at the colour of the sleeve , see if it fills thick and not paper like photocopy paper, because people do copy tapes to pass them off as genuine originals. this will be called (backups- not pre cert- boot sale find- transfer from original-)
some copys are very good and can be thought of originals, just here if the sound is a bit low and picture is not very clear. you might got a copy and very good . well thats a bargin if you got a very spot on copy because these videos are very rare and can cost quiet a bit to buy. ( the devil hunter would cost to buy £200 or more)
on some sleeves a few might have logos/ holograms what give off colour when turned from left -right showing the logo. copys dont.
some copys might jump slightly , might flash black n white . but because back in the 1980s the equipment used buy the makers makes some pictures grainy looking to look old and some were crystal clear.
a pre cert is a video with out the certification or an x on the tape.(x=18)
pal= british standerd vhs/beta play ntsc=usa/american standerd play some tapes dont play on older machines because of the diffrent formate but new machines can play any formate of tapes (please check your machine to see if it can play other formate of vhs tapes before buying them).
