Witch With Flying Head on eBay!!!

But still, I'm pretty sure that his copy of BB2 is damaged and therefore incomplete.
Just like those 3 films I can get, which are all missing more than 10 minutes of footage each.

Too bad it wasn't the right film.

I don't want to speculate whether his print of Big Boss 2 was missing reels or not. Quite frankly I think it may very well have been a complete print. If you check the 10 minutes that he uploaded to YouTube (to prove that he really did have the film) that footage actually looks pretty good. But it could be one way or the other.

Oh, and I finally received the rare subtitled print of WITCH WITH FLYING HEAD yesterday!! Whoo-hoo!! At least SOME things go down well!!

Thanks I'm pretty sure this is what I was thinking of. It wasn't the deal for Big Boss 2, although many collectors indicate he didn't have a full print. I think the logic behind that is... if he's willing to sell off three films that are all incomplete then it doesn't bode well for BB2.

Did the website you're talking about mention Big Boss 2 before or after this whole Naushad affair?

I was talking about the very same website, KFC = Kung Fu Cinema forum, and incidentally... the thread you're linking to is the one I was referring to! :cheers:

So BIG BOSS 2 wasn't mentioned in that thread and neither was a version of the film with missing reels. It would be good if Cteve could please check his info: can he somehow get a copy or was that a misunderstanding as well. Unfortunately I reckon it was (but it'd be cool if I'm in the wrong here!).

I hear what you're saying and I understand the logic - but the thing is I've bought films from him in the past (films that he had released on factory pressed DVDs) and they were fine. No reels missing. So it's not necessarily the common standard with all his films.

A couple of years ago I spoke to someone from FlashLegs kung fu film forum; He had actually been to visit Naushad in South Africa a few years back. And he said he seemed like an odd character and that his film reels were just laying around in a garage. All his films were inherited from his father in law who owned a chain of cinemas.

I'm not suggesting anybody is lying :-) but I just have a feeling someone may have confused film titles. Not you or Matt (Cteve) but someone else along the way. Like I mentioned in the above I do indeed remember someone at KFC trying to work about a deal about distributing some of his films and they were sent films that were missing reels - but BIG BOSS 2 wasn't one of those films.

But needless to say someone else could have been trying to work out another deal as well. If Matt could get hold of that dvdr he mentioned in the above all speculations would be eliminated.

Jack i thought we had discussed the guy who got the film from Naushad.... later finding that dvd-r was missing a lot of footage in various places.

Later on someone offered the film up for $15,000! Was that Naushad again?


Big Boss 2

Firstly, I'm very surprise to hear that Globe aka Naushad is said to have sent out a version of THE BIG BOSS PART 2 to someone!!! And that this version has scenes missing! I would like that have confirmed the mere fact that he actually sent out a copy to someone! I am positive this would have been mentioned on Kung Fu Cinema forum and I have seen none of that!

I am fully aware that someone on Kung Fu Cinema forum offered to distribute some of Naushad's films (I believe it was three films) and when they received them from him they decided not to spend money on a release as his films were missing reels and scenes.

However, BIG BOSS PART 2 was not among those films! If he sent it to someone else it's certainly news to me and honestly I don't think he did. He was so adamant of not making copies. I wrote to him several time and asked for a copy and he flat out refused.

I don't know who the owner of the OTHER print is. At some stage someone sold off the well known copy of THE BIG BOSS (the Bruce Lee film) that included the original rejected English dub. At some stage last year they stated on their blog that sometime in the future they would release THE BIG BOSS PART 2 on dvd as well. But to my knowledge it never happened and now they have gone awfully quiet. And if they were the ones who offered to sell a print at 15.000 dollars I have no idea.

I wrote to Toby Russel and asked him about the film but he didn't reply.

You can watch a trailer and a 10 min. clip in these posts. The clip is from a 35mm copy that a certain *difficult* cinema owner in South Africa had at some stage but he wouldn't make dvdr copies (even tho he didn't have a problem with that with other films in the past) and then he sold the print off to a cinema in Africa.

I can get a DVD-R of that South African print. But for what I heard it is missing a bunch of scenes and snippets here and there. Maybe due to print damage? I don't know. It was the same thing for "Black Dragon River" (A project I will be working on later), there are about 15 minutes missing, some scenes are 2 to 4 minutes long and there are tons of little tiny pieces of dialogue missing as well... a mess.

You can get a dvdr copy of the South African print!! How the blood hell can you get that!!!!!!?????? But yes that would be SWEEEEET, mate!!!

Did that South AFrican guy make copies of it after all? It's fucked cos he said he had print he sold off to a cinema in Africa, and I believe it must have been a complete print. Why else would a cinema pay good money for it.

Dag-Johnny, how would he own a tape from Norway? After all, every tape ever released in Norway is in your house!! :hi:

FINAL SCORE VHS
I'm pretty sure Paul Cooke from Balistic Blood Bullets had the Japanese tape up for sale very recently but now it's gone from his blog page, maybe he regretted putting it up or sold to directly to someone. In any case, if Unuuk can't find one you could give Poul a shout and check if he's still got it. He's a member here too.

I'm still (always) looking for a copy of THE BIG BOSS PART 2 (the Lo Lieh film). Do you know if he's got a print of that one???  :unsure:

There's a Vipco Pre-Cert of that Jack, pops up on eBay quite often.

LOL. I highly doubt that. It's one of the most sought after HK films. I think there's a good chance you're confusing it with another film by the same title, there are several films that use that title as aka title. This film stars Lo Lieh.

I live in downtown shitsville. The very few Asian shops here don't have films. :(

Thanks for that (depressing) update, Kothar. I guess we'll just have to wait till Fred Anderson releases all this on Attackafant Entertainment.

shitsville sounds nice jacky.
i know a member of a different forum and he is from meansville.

"Shitsville" sounds nice to you!? :blink:

Nah, mate. Small town boredom is small town boredom. Shitsville. Boredomville. Not too interesting.

Even if he forgot there's really no reason to report him! I'm sure he has a valid reason. Maybe he was in jail or something. :hi:

:wub: the fantastic HER VENGEANCE on taiwan vhs....i now have all three different prints of the film! :D  just need to get a custom made of all three to make the ultimate edition!!

Nicely done, Rob! Thought I was a Simon Nam/Ngai Kai Lam addict, but that's damn impressive. What are some differences in the three prints? And when can I get a copy of the custom, combo edition? ;)

Cheers mate. Yep, one of my absolute favs!! The Taiwan print is the same print used for the megastar vcd- extended scenes(porno shoot) but lacking all violence that is contained in the LD print and some in the joysales dvd.

So in reality it's not a third edit but one of the other two versions that has been further cut (censored).

In any case, it's a cool cover! :tapelove:
