Re: Let's Talk About Horror Fiction

Crap, after all of that, I forgot the acquisition which prompted me to update in the first place.

I finally--at long last--got my hands on a copy of The Abominable Snowman. You're the one who first told me about it, and then after viewing Flesh and Blood: The Hammer Heritage of Horror, I figured it was a must-have for me as a Hammer fan. But it's out of print, and it sells from $50 for a used copy to as high as $120 for a sealed one. But I just couldn't bear to pay the former for a used DVD and the latter is just too darn much for a single disc, no matter how rare it is.

But after much patience on eBay, I finally picked it up. It was still kind of too much for a single DVD ($60), but it was sealed and new.

I haven't watched it yet (probably this weekend), but it looks great.

Definitely my nerdiest purchase in a long time, just for the cost.
