Zimatar - trailer

Here it is, finally. The trailer for the very rare Filipino adventure film ZIMATAR.

Thanks to bearded man Patrick for uploading this! Great stuff. The trailer comes from the Japanese VHS release of the Filipino horror flick ZUMA (which I've written about before). The other way 'round, the ZIMATAR tape contains a trailer for ZUMA (in English no less, although the film has never been dubbed).

Both Japanese tapes are very rare and go for rather huge amounts on eBay. ZUMA only exists on Japanese VHS and Filipino VCD (the first is very rare, the latter is very very rare, LOL). ZIMATAR only exists in English on very very rare Japanese VHS (of which I'm the happy owner of a copy!) and there's a crappy German DVD/VHS release (which is crappy because the picture is overmodulated + needless to say it's dubbed in German and the DVD sadly doesn't offer neither a Filipino or English option).

Pulp International

On Monday I suggested you check out the web-page/blog PULP INTERNATIONAL and I want to stress how much fun this blog is. Check out three of today's pulp covers (from Italy). Wauw!! Totally rad!! And there's more of the same. You gotta go there! (I can't link to the post so if you read this sometime in the future you gotta go to the "Shocking Blue" post from today's date).
