Comedy of Terrors Why is it so expensive for DVD?

Is there a good logical reason as to why the old movie Comedy of Terrors is a bit expensive up to 60ish bucks on amazon etc? Is it because it has Vincent Price, Peter Lorre and Lugosi?

Must be because the DVD is out of print. I see that it is on Amazon Prime Video for streaming if you’re a member. If you’re not a member then sign up for the free trial, then watch the movie, then cancel. Or just watch it for free on YouTube right here:

It doesn't have Lugosi, it has Boris Karloff. And it's out of print on DVD and Blu-Ray (where it was only available as part of a set).

Ridiculous price, that. Especially when one considers that you could have recorded it from TCM just a month or so ago.

I did - recorded it to the HDD of my Pioneer DVD recorder and then burned a DVD of it.

If you are capable of playing Region B Blu-rays, Arrow Video released a fabulous Comedy of Terrors.
