Received yet another small parcel from a Chinese gent in SF...



And what can I say other than arrrrrr [i.e. Homer Simpson drool]

11 laserdiscs and 4 video tapes of Hong Kong films. 6 of the LDs are in plain white covers but I wanted to get them anyway as they're very rare; One of them is the rare version of DEVIL FETUS which is identical to the (also very rare) Ocean Shores VHS and which is an alternative print with some different footage (alternative to the DVD and VCD releases). Oh, and one of the other white sleeve laserdiscs is Tsui Hark's DANGEROUS ENCOUNTER - FIRST KIND!!!

Check the first parcel here.








LEOPARD HUNTING (HK, 1998, s: Jade Leung, Roy Cheung, Yukari Oshima). And yes it's one film on two video tapes! This used to be common practice in HK (and thus also the US Chinatown tapes). I have no idea as to why they did this.



WAY OF THE LADY BOXERS



ANGEL'S PROJECT



THE HAUNTED MADAM



DEVIL'S WOMAN



DEVIL RETURNS (not to be confused with SATAN RETURNS)




SALLY YEH (Sally Yip) live in concert 1991





CRAZY SPIRIT

The remaining white sleeve laserdiscs are: FRIENDLY GHOST, THE FIRST VAMPIRE IN CHINA (which I have on a Japanese VHS but I'm informed this LD is subtitled in English!!!), NEW MR VAMPIRE (!!!), MISS MAGIC.

All in all a very good parcel with 13 rare HK movies (and one Sally Yeh concert). There was a lot of rare stuff I couldn't get because, well, I'm not made of money. LOLZ.

  1. Another awesome package Jack, shame some of those laserdiscs don't have covers but it's the movies that count!

  2. Thanks, mate. Yeah I wish I could have had the covers but what can you do.

    For a second I imagined another collector saying, "Nah, I don't want 'Dangerous Encounters'! I'll wait till I find one with a cover", hahaha.
