Argento on Danish ex-rental

Over at Uncut.dk messages board we're trying to figure out how many collectors have these very rare Danish ex-rental tapes of Argento films. I know, I know, a completely waste of time but, well, that's how it is to be a geeky collector. :-D

In the early days these Danish tapes were very sought after by international horror and splatter movie fans as they offered uncut, English dubbed prints. Well, most of them were uncut anyway. ;-)

So, if you're either in Denmark or somewhere else; if you have one of these tapes do let us know. Cheers. You'll find the thread here.

And if you don't collect your films in a modly format that belongs to a bygone era then if nothing else you can enjoy these very rare covers that sure beat the crappy photoshop covers of today's DVD releases. They just don't make 'em like this anymore!

  3. My first Argento film on VHS was either THE BIRD or TENEBRAE, but anyway they were both late 80s early 90s. The first time I saw one of his films was at the cinema; an all-nighter at the old Scala in London. A whole night of Argento movies! They showed TENEBRAE, CREEPERS, and I belive DEMONS and something else. Obviously DEMONS isn't a 'real' Argento movie but they always tried to sell it off as one. LOL.

  4. Talking about something else... your the expert, and have you seen the bootleg dvd of The Killing Of Satan from Substance? How is the quality?

  5. LOL. I know nothing. I'm a hack.

    - And yes I have the dvd and it looks like a vhs. It's an alright dvd but don't expect anything remastered.

  8. OK..these are in English, but the box art is in Danish? Were they sub-titled in Danish?

  9. Yes, they carry the English dub and were subtitled in Danish. Nothing in Northern Europe (apart from Germany) is dubbed into local languages (except kids' cartoons).

  10. Germany are crazy when it comes to dubbing. They dub everything!
