Stone Boy (Philippines, 1982)

Sometimes you keep looking for old tapes for yrs and yrs and never find them, and sometimes you get an automatic email from eBay that says, "Buddy, we found yr tape for ya!" One such tape is the Filipino weirdo movie STONE BOY (aka Boy God/Rocco, Ang Batang Bato). The only two releases I'm aware of are on VHS in the US and in Australia. Yesterday I received the Aussie tape. xD xD xD. So far I've only checked the first 10 min and they look goood! Check Andrew Leavold and Todd Stadtman's reviews here.


  1. This looks crazy, and on Australian VHS to boot! I'll have to keep an eye out.

  2. It does look crazy doesn't it! Someone sent me a link to the trailer here:!

    Good luck on finding the tape, both the US and the OZ tapes are pretty rare.

  3. wow, could you scan the VHS cover? I had the "pleasure" of watching this movie a few months ago and, let me tell you, my life will never be the same :)

  4. Hey Micki!

    So happy you had your life changed by STONE BOY, haha. I'll try and write up a review of the film soon and will scan the full cover and post here as well. :D

    Thanks for your comment!

  5. thanks for replying Jack :)
    I'm pretty sure I was about to buy the same exact VHS copy you now have in your hands. but the seller wouldn't reply to my questions about whether he had just the tape, or there was a paper inlay on the case... so I just let it go.

    for some unknown reason, I felt the need to have my own copy, with full colour artwork! glad to see it went to the right hands :)

  6. any news about scanning the full cover of the tape you got? :) I can't for the life of me find a copy for myself, and I'm dying to see the full cover artwork in all its glory :D
    thanks in advance!

  7. Uh, yes! I'll get one done for ya, buddy.
