Movies that are worth considerably more than their subsequent DVD or other later format releases

I figure this is an appropriate topic given the one on films never released on DVD.

The biggest gap in value of any film that I can think of for this topic is Eraserhead, there was only one VHS release and it was over 30 years ago.  Even cut box versions go for more than $60, complete ones well over $100, yet you can get a new DVD for $20-$25 and used for less.

Of course final VHS releases command a huge premium over their relatively common DVDs, like Cars or History of Violence.

Individual Nightmare on Elm Street or Friday the 13th VHS tapes go for $5-$20, when you can get the complete DVD boxsets for $20-$30.

I welcome more additions and discussion on this topic.

Apparently people (myself included) will pay extra for 2005-06 releases...
