Jack, sorry to get off-topic, but are you aware of the US DVD of Phantom Raiders (1988)?
No, I wasn't aware there was a US DVD. The version I have is this Japanese VHS:http://trashy-filipino-war-movies.blogspot.com/2009/01/phantom-raiders-1988.htmlI'll check it out. It's not a VideoAsia release is it? :D
Nah, it's from a fly-by-nighter named Digiview Entertainment. The transfer is from what looks like a video master, not a VHS rip. Kinda dark and the image "flutters" quite a bit in the first reel, but it looks pretty good otherwise. Screenshots and cover: http://img251.imageshack.us/g/vlcsnap185371.png/
Well, if nothing else it's bound to smoke those VideoAsia "releases". :DThanks for the scans. I'll mention the disk on my other blog. Btw, what's that "Draculas" DVD you've got in the pic of the cover? A bootleg? What's the movie? :-)
Gee, I've just discovered there's also a German DVD release (English friendly even!). It's available from German and UK Amazon. http://trashy-filipino-war-movies.blogspot.com/2010/10/phantom-raiders-on-dvd.html
That Dracula disc is a bootleg of León Klimovsky's Saga of the Draculas (La saga de los Drácula) I bought at a carnival years ago of all places. Thanks a lot for the mention! The US disc has no extras and a runtime of 1:25:22. I'll provide you a proper full scan of the cover tomorrow, it's getting late here :P I'll to check out that German disc, badass flick!
I have that film too and incidentally it's also on a bootleg, LOL (altho on a Dutch VHS). Arh, don't mention it. :DA proper scan would be nice. Cheers.
Here's the full cover...http://img227.imageshack.us/img227/176/clipboard01og.jpgAlso I mentioned your blog and scanned the art for the Japanese tape of OPERATION PARATROOPER on my blog just now!
Very cool! Thanks a lot, Jason! :D
