Home Sweet Homicide on Video
22 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As with the rest of you Home Sweet Homicide has been on my wish list for years. I too first saw this minor classic on New York's great Million Dollar Movie. Well good news all! While researching this title I discovered a site through Amazon that sells a public domain-ish VHS tape of Home Sweet Homicide. The quality is a little murky sometimes but it is most certainly watchable. The company I purchased it from is:

Life Is A Movie, 3639 Midway Drive, Suite B-326, San Diego, CA 92110-5254

Toll Free Telephone: 888-403-0873

Email: custserv@lifeisamovie.com

The total cost was $16.97

Enjoy!
