I've just gone down this path.... purchased a EOS-1N HS with EF24mm f2.8 for dirt cheap, and i mean DIRT cheap. Not sure if the seller knew what lens they were selling with the body - in fact i also purchased a EOS-D30 from the same person, don't ask why
I purchased some fijifilm 400 and have almost used it up, hopefully get it developed tomorrow. I'm currently in NZ (live in Aus) and its still possible to find places that develop and sell film.
It certainly teaches you to take better photos, purely by the extra thought you put into the framing,composition etc.
24shot ISO400 fijifilm goes for about $8-10 a roll (cheap stuff, not sure how good it is) and getting it developed can be anywhere between $15->$30 depending how fast you want it done, and if you want the negatives scanned to files.
Here's a question for any film ppl out there, is it possible to use a digital camera to take a pic of a negative to save getting them scanned when developed?
Take the plunge, for the price of a good old film body, what can you lose
PS - i picked up the EOS-1N HS for $100aussie
I have my films developed by our local camera shop in town then put on a CD , transfer to my PC and use Canons DPP to get them looking how I want them and print what I want for there ,cost is $10 NZ each 24 expos film.
I have a mint 1n with power grip came with all original box, sales reciept, manual, and advertising paperwork from 1996, all looks like it has never been used .Love that camera
