Although it's not being made available only on VHS, Ti West's The House of the Devil has been put onto the archaic format (in clam-shell case, no less!) and while that tape was initially thought to be used only as a piece of marketing material to be sent out to horror websites, the great blog Basement of Ghoulish Decadence has discovered that a DVD/VHS combo pack is currently available to pre-order on Amazon! Is it just me or is this the coolest thing ever?

Now I haven't seen The House of the Devil yet but it's gotten enough praise to warrant me blind buying it and with an offer like this and a $50 Amazon gift card in my hand (thanks Jen!), how can I pass it up? In fact, I just pre-ordered my copy! The DVD/VHS combo pack is gonna run ya $33.23 and I say it's worth every penny to get your hands on such a cool and original collector's item. **UPDATE - Amazon has just lowered the price to a mere $24.95! Thanks, Jayson** If you're a stickler for quality and have no interest in a VHS tape of a brand new movie, you can of course pick up the film solely on DVD or even on Blu-ray.
Did you ever think you'd see the day when a movie was released, at the same time, on both VHS and Blu-ray? Hell truly has frozen over and I couldn't be happier to see it happen.
House of the Devil has been available to buy on demand for over a month now but I personally am gonna wait until February 2nd to watch it on VHS. Who's with me?
