  1. I’ve sadly seen this DVD way too many times to count. It’s a great double feature with Cannibal Holocaust when I got friends over ( i usually show this one first, since it’s lighter and prepares people for the follow up.)

  2. I used to own the Laserdisc back in the day! I’m from Newcastle, England. A tiny store would manage to grab a few copies of hard-to-find titles.

    I remember that they ran a regular store, but the banned and illegal discs where held in a bin behind the scenes. You had to know these guys, otherwise you were never gonna get a peak behind the curtain. I remember them telling me. “We have three copies, better come by quick.”.

    There was one left by the time I got there. I snapped it up, rushed home and ripped it open… Man! Gatefold, vomit bag, 7 inch!!

    I had a couple of friends over (Davey, Big Johnny, Keith.), a fridge filled with ale.

    We watched it; and the extra’s back to back – twice! Great night! Great times.

    I honestly thought that these movies would never see the light of day on blu-ray. I’m so happy that Bob and his team are driven by a real love and passion for this kind of mental cinema and that we, who are fans and clamming for movies of this ilk; will actually get to see them in their full glory! Thank you so much Bob. There’s nothing but love for you here man…
