Surprisingly, since it was released unrated, you could rent this from Blockbuster. When I worked there a very angry mom came in one time to chastise the store for letting her teen son rent it, even though her account allowed for that.

I do wish I knew how exactly the mom came to find out her son had rented it and that that was a bad thing for him to do. Did she walk in on him watching it? Maybe she popped in during the home-invasion scene.

I remember the box at our local rental place had an extra card portcullis stuck onto the front of the box so it really stood out.

There’s definitely a divide in here somewhere in the late 90s when I had moved on to DVDs. They were never quite the same.

It's interesting to think about a format being intrinsically tied to a time period. I was thinking the other day about how most mix tape playlists are similarly trapped in the 80's and 90's. You will likely never see a mix tape with, I dunno, Adele on it.
