Investor guidelines

  • Avoid common mainstream titles that were released on labels such as Cinema Club and 4Front, because these would have been mass produced and are worth ‘next to nothing’.
  • Aim for films that have never been released on DVD or Blu-ray and are original ex-rentals’.
  • The most valuable VHS tapes are the ones deemed as one-offs, released in small batches within the ‘video nasties’ category and on micro-budget labels such as Knockout and Trytel.
  • Pre-classification titles are generally more valuable than post-classification VHS’.

VHS’ now come under the category ‘antech’. This specifically refers to modern forms of technology that were manufactured no earlier than the 1970’s but are no longer mass produced or sold. Please refer to our Antech (Vintage Technology) page for more information.
