It's the rare first release on the Video International label.

Fortunately I do own the second release with the alternative cover so that's alright. I also have VILLA VENNELY's second release (also with alternative cover) but I've never got hold of MELLEM VENNER on legit VHS. I own the Leif Jedig/Video Netto bootleg VHS.

What is this tape? :unsure:

Denmark isn't exactly known for making cool psychotronic films but in the 1960s there was an unknown director called Poul Nyrup who made 3 really cool juvenile delinquents movies. STENBROENS "HELTE" is his last (and best) movie from 1965. The 3 films have never been released on legit DVD (and probably never will) and the video releases are very hard to come by.

The other two films are MELLEM VENNER (63) and VILLA VENNELY (64). The latter is the only one which is available as Something Weird Video have put out a boot DVD in the US (subtitled in English) as "Copenhagen Call-girls".

There's a clip from STENBROEN on YouTube:

Jack - got those too :( Really sucks, such a strange, sad situation, especially with a seller who's been around for a while. It just doesn't add up that they would try to rip people off. The rip-off wouldn't happen...just a bunch of frustrated people w/o tapes, but no payday.

Yeah, too bad. After I received the eBay notifications I wrote to him twice, both thru eBay and thru ordinary email, but got zilch response. Yet, I was still hoping and have held back from opening a case with eBay until today. But I'm not gonna receive anything am I so I've finally opened a case for both tapes for a refund. Too fucken bad cos I really wanted those tapes. :( Oh well. That's life I guess. :wacko:

For which seller are you talking about? Maybe something happened to him...

Sure. Maybe he got ill or even worse. His ID is: sanfranciscobayvideos

It was a good store cos he often had rare Ocean Shores tapes and other US releases of Hong Kong tapes.

Big congrats to Dag-Johnny who scored the rare Danish STENBROENS "HELTE"! (some "other" collector was too slow :( It was entirely my own fault cos I thought there were more time and that there'd be an end-time. Now, I'll just go and kick myself in the head :lol: ). Well, at least it goes to a good home. :hello!:

look very interesting

someone know where can we buy it? (shipping to all countries and english language coz it's very hard for read and understand Czech  :P ...)

None of us can read Czech! :lol:

We use Google translator (or "feeblefish").

Go here:
http://translate.google.com/#

I have actually added the Google tranny ( :blink: ) to my Firefox bar so it translates the whole page automatically. It's crap for reading articles but alright for ordering stuff.

Some Czech stores ship outside of the country and some don't. It seems noone here has yet ordered from this place so we don't know if they ship outside of the Czech Republic (it's not mentioned in their info afaics).

Is the Malay/Indo VCD also in English?

No, from what I understand they basically speak the same language as in Indonesia so the audio is the same.


From Wiki:

Quote:
 
Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia) is the official language of Indonesia. Indonesian is a normative form of the Riau dialect of Malay, an Austronesian language which has been used as a lingua franca in the Indonesian archipelago for centuries.

I just made a search on Youtube and found the whole movie (Fullscreen) with the original language track (not English dub), so that means that I would be able to match the original track the the Japanese print and probably make English subs!

That should be a cool upgrade  B)   IMO.

Are you're sure the YT version is u/c and not from the cut vcd?? Were you able to see where that YT version came from??? :blink: If it's uncut that would be cool if you could add the audio to the English print. Absolutely! :wub:

The Stick (South Africa, 1987)
Hmm, that didn't even occur to me. :blink:

Thanks for the scan. B)

Is it fullscreen?

Wauw, that is a very nice Korean cover there!! :wub:

Actually I'd say the English dubbed print is by far the version to go for so unless there's bits and pieces in the VCD version then I don't think there's any real need for a restoration. Btw, you ask about the Indonesian VCD; Actually the place to look for Indonesian films is not really Indonesia but Malaysia. There are some Indo VCDs as Godzilla-2000 points out but the amount of Malay releases (of Indo films) is far bigger.

Sounds really good (in a bad situation)!! :)

I noticed there's another copy of this rare Japanese tape on eBay right now and since I really like this flick I thought I'd use the opportunity to try and convert the rest of you. :D

The Stick (South Africa, 1987)

aka Platoon Warrior (Dutch & German VHS)

I watched the South African horror/war movie THE STICK tonight and if it had any value to mention it here I would most likely say THE STICK is thee best South African movie I've ever watched ... but as I've only seen three S.A. film ever it doesn't make that much of an impression on you, I'm sure! xD.

The movie is from 1987 and was made and is set in the middle of the apartheid era which isn't something you're likely to forget thru out the movie ("Why the fuck do we need to carry this fucken dead kaffer?"). South African patrols are being attacked and killed off by a ghostlike enemy. The army leaders don't believe in ghosts so they wanna get the enemy once and for all. And by "get" means: "I don't need any prisoners" as they chief commander puts it in his speech to his men.

A group of 8 men take off to find the mysterious enemy in the bush. I'll do a proper review on my other blog later but sufficient to say THE STICK is one helluva film! It's very good and there's not one single moment where your mind drifts off to tropical islands and native go-go-dancers in bamboo skirts.

THE STICK is tough, raw, unpleasant (there are no real likeable characters in the fillm) and not for the fainhearted! Most of the dialogue is in English with a few Africaans (i.e. old Dutch) sentences scattered around for good measure. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to actually get to watch the film. There are no DVD releases and the few VHS releases are very rare. I got my copy from Japan for around 30 bucks + postage. The picture is fullscreen and as good as it gets for VHS. This film really needs a proper release. [review originally posted on my blog]

The same store Spannick linked to also has it:

http://www.vapet.cz/film/horor/zenska-veznice

WOW! Nice shop! They have a trailer also :blink:

It's amazing how Czech labels find these prints...

And it's even more amazing how they can sell them at 2 euros!!! And they're not bootlegs. How can they get them so cheap from the companies. Do they get special aid now that they're in the EU?? :blink: :lol:

Btw, Vapet (the store from the link) is not just a store, it's actually the video label.
