Rare VHS movies used to be incredibly difficult to find. With the Internet, though, over the last couple of years it has gotten to a point where if something has been released on VHS somewhere in the world, you can probably find it. New and used copies of rare VHS movies bring beloved favorites and little-known gems to people around the world.

In fact, there are more rare VHS movies than rare DVDs available. That is because with lesser-known older movies, they were released on VHS but never re-released on DVD. In some cases they are out-of-print, and in others, still being produced but only on VHS.

Foreign and Rare VHS Movies

In many cases, foreign films are rare in the U.S. It is unlikely that you will be able to rent foreign films from your local video store unless they became particularly well-known for some reason, such as winning an international award. You have to know where to look online to purchase most foreign movies.

Many foreign films are available only on VHS, even those that are more popular. In many other countries, DVD technology is so rare that movies are only released on VHS because they are only distributed by domestic companies. Thus, rare VHS movies are often the only format in which to find foreign films, and online is the only place.
