Also these are the prices video stores payed, not the general release retail price which was usually - (this would be - probably).
Yeah most of my VHS collection comes from video stores so they're full of trailers like these. Hell, the video store I used to go to made a profit off me and the Puss and Boots cartoon with Donald Pleasance because I rented it twice a week. Actually anything with Donald Pleasance..
I don't remember the Home Video prices though; I remember my older brother's friends talking about how their dad got a VHS of Maximum Overdrive and how it was like 200 bucks. But I guess that was the early/mid 80s and not 1990.
The video store I worked at in high school switched from DOS to Linux while I was there and the new software wouldn't accept a lot of the old bar codes, which led directly to the manager selling me a dozen Russ Meyer VHS tapes for about total. Which was completely amazing at the time, since that was back when he was still self releasing them for - each retail.
A friend of mine spent over 0 to get Cannibal: The Musical on VHS from Troma back in the 90s, too. I was lucky enough to score a shitty looking, EP mode screener.
Hell, even in 2001 a roommate and I had to spend each just to get a worn out, EP tape of the first 7 episodes of The Super Mario Brothers Super Show on eBay.

Aw, it cut off at the end! What does the oversized cassette box do? How does that even work? Couldn't it only display one movie at a time?
