YIN ZHONG (THE RAPE AFTER)
Have you received THE RAPE AFTER yet, Videohunter? If you have it would be cool if you'd show us a scan of the (full) cover.

By the way, participation is lower lately. Are you guys shy or something :P
or the gifts are rather bad? I try my best with them but I'm not really rich...

Personally I'm not "fan" with US Horror or whatever. I watch it but European is my favorite. So like this last contest I prefer not to participate and give people who like US cinema the chance to win.

Same goes for me. For instance, I couldn't care less for erotica (give me hardcore porn. LOL) so I tend to skip those contests. To each his own.

CONTEST #23: THE NECRO FILES (1997) DVD
Wauw. This is great. Thanks.
I've never actually seen THE NECRO FILES so this'll be cool.

(uh, and yes, I'll write a review of the last one I won also!!).


Jack :D

BEWITCHED
Yeah, welcome, Linn! And thanks for that rundown of BEWITCHED! I'm looking even more forward to watching it now.

PIRANHA - GREEK FANZINE
lt79

Greek fans, yes it sounds like a joke doesn't it? They suck ass!

I know I mentioned this to you en an email this summer, lt79, but I find it really really odd that a country that is regarded as ex-rental vhs heaven to foreign collectors has so few fans of these movies. Very weird.


Jack

BEWITCHED
Will do!

You bid a 1000 Swedish kroner!!! :o :o
I guess we can discu... you bid a 1000 kroner!!!

The most expensive video tapes I ever bought were going for like around 400 Danish kroner (500 skr) which again is like 80 US$. Don't get me wrong, my friend, Videohunter, I respect anything that anybody does (unless they kick dogs or something stoopid like that) but I'm just surprised at the price level that old video tapes go for and how much other collectors are willing to pay.

Got something to say about Asian movies
Unfortunately it seems that CORPSE MANIA and SEEDING OF A GHOST may very well be Mandarin only DVDs which is unfortunate as the original language for these films is Cantonese. The Celestial DVD of SEEDING has both dialects and the VCD of CORPSE has both as well (and pretty good picture quality).

Apparently Image (the US video company) has only bought the rights for the Mandarin track - just like they did with BOXER'S OMEN (which has both tracks on the VCD as well). What a bummer if this is how it's going to be!!! :angry:


Jack

BEWITCHED
I have bought it but since October has been such a good month film-wise I haven't actually had the time to watch it yet. However, this is (supposedly) the film BOXER'S OMEN is a sequel to so if it's as good or even just comes close to BOXER'S then it'll be worth the watch I'd say. :D

INDUNA DVD/VCD STORE
I guess those vcd's ARE cheap! However, some companies like FedEx charge you EVERY time! It's very annoying :angry:


Jack

INDUNA DVD/VCD STORE
This sounds VERY promising, Miltos. The only thing that is a bit of a worry is if they only send out their stuff by courier. The problem is if they state the correct price on the envelope cos then the courier company is bound to charge us for the stupid EU tax fee (anything exceeding 10!!) + a fee for doing so (!!!). But of course if they don't mind writing some phony value or 'gift' on the parcel! ;)

RARE FROM INDIA
IT IS HIM!!!

He goes under the same seller-name of madhukary!!! :D

MAK FROM INDIA

This store closed for some reason (??) but I think it opened again as RARE FROM INDIA (see other topic)

I certainly hope he isn't closing down!! As far as I know there's only two good places on eBay to buy Bollywood horror films and Mak is by far the cheapest (the other one charges twice the price). :unsure:

Hey hep-cats,
Another exiting piece of news in Hong Kong horrors: Image in the US are going to put out CORPSE MANIA on DVD! They're also putting out SEEDING OF A GHOST (which, if memory serves me well, is a film I think I've mentioned in here before :D ). Both films are already out from Celestial but in the case of CORPSE MANIA it's a VCD release only. Great news. There's no release date as of yet.

CORPSE MANIA is best described as a Hong Kong giallo!

BAD TIMES FOR ONAR FILMS
I had already read his post at his blog and yes; it's terrible! Trying to promote yourself when you are a one man business is really hard. And sending free copies out to potential retailers gets to be a bitch cos so many stores just don't care. I experienced this when I did my fanzine. So many stores couldn't give a rat's ass.

And Videhunter, I agree. Download is the future. UNFORTUNATELY!!! I must admit I never saw the appeal in burning your own copy of an album or a film and printing your own cover. To me that is stupid! How anyone would want some homemade crap instead of a good release is beyond me! I don't get it and I don't understand why so few people buy stuff like the Onar and Casa Negra stuff. When you read message boards and film magazines it seems like world-weird films is so 'cool' and the 'in' thing to collect. And in reality it's just talk talk talk. Not a whole lot of people actually buy these things and support the companies that put them out. That's also why it bugs me when you see fans who collect these films but only/or mostly collect DVD-Rs! DVD-Rs are fine when we are dealing with stuff that has disappeared from the marked, when all there was in the first place was a VHS that came out twenty years ago (probably in Greece). But I fail to understand why some collectors collect easy-to-get films on DVD-R. It's killing small companies (and yes, I realise we've had this conversation in here before... but I still don't get it). Honestly, a collection of Fulci's zombie films on DVD-R is nothing but shite if you ask me. Worth nothing.

And seeing how Bill may have to print only 500 copies of his future DVDs is just ridiculous. There must be 1200 fans of these films world wide!!

ESINDO
Yeah, pretty cool. Which one did you get for bonus?

Thanks to Ali Murat Guven for letting us know. I didn't know much about him either except for the book but I sincerely hope he pulls through.

OFFICIAL DVD OF CIRKIN DUNYA
cinehound
Oct 18 2007, 03:16 PM
These DVDrs are in Turkish language with English subtitles. I suppose now with the official release around these should deleted from the market.

Hold off getting rid of them, Miltos, I have a bad video copy of this and at some stage I'd rather get an English subbed print IN TURKISH from you instead of a version with German dub!! <_<
