I'm a newbie collector so I still don't know if it's rare or not, but it's one of the coolest artwork I've seen on a VHS. Bought it today (in a lot)

Metamorphosis: The Alien Factor (1990) (Argentina - Tauro Video)
Pics are taken with cell phone and in a dark room, sorry.

In the same lot as Metamorphosis I got amongst others (for less than 1 dollar each) "bates motel", "bad dreams", "little devils: the birth", "satan's supper (Cataclysm)", "The Vineyard (1989)", "The Outing (The Lamp)" "Exterminators of the year 3000 (with a damaged tape in a part)", "Playroom (1990)" "Sleepaway Camp III: Teenage Wasteland", "Dust Devil".

I can post pics by request. Some look like something completely different by the cover (and the CHANGED title...)

As usual, not too sure if rare or not (i think Deliria by Soavi is quite rare). Remember I'm a newbie. I'll post them in case you like looking at the Argentinian releases of the movies.

Pay no attention to the colour, shitty cell phone camera.

1) Savage Streets 2) "Amor Estranho Amor" an "erotic" movie starring Xuxa. Who later became a TV star for children TV programmes.

1) Bad Taste (they added some cheesy drawings and comments to the artwork, I don't think I saw that in any other release):

1) Savana violenta (mondo documentary) 2) Vamos a Matar Compaņeros (Spaghetti Western):
Posted Image

1) Deliria (Soavi) aka: Stagefright 2) Manhattan Baby (by Fulci)

Lo Strangolatore di Vienna (1971) THE MAD BUTCHER

I think I heard this vhs was rare, though I might be wrong. But I'm dead sure this Argentinian release IS rare. And in perfect condition too and no cardboard part missing from the box...

I got a lot of nice movies. I'll put them for sale in some days/weeks.

Could you post the cassette??

I'm afraid this is the only other photo I have where you can partially see the tape. It's on my other home right now, but I can take better pictures in the future. And less blurry also:

I just got these ones + 2 in the gialloboy WANTED list (which I won't post here):

Def-Con 4 (1985) POST APOCALYPTIC STUFF
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087130/

Wizards of the Lost Kingdom (1985) This is a rarity. With american actors, produced by Corman and an Argentinian director, shot in Argentina. Really cheesy.
(DUBBED IN SPANISH EDITION)

Alligator II: The Mutation (1991)

Sotto il vestito niente (1985). 80s giallo
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086343/

Mortuary (1983)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0087746/

Annihilator (1986) I LOVE the cover. Too bad this copy is a cardboard box passed to a plastic case.
Posted Image

All I have can be sold (Argentine editions). I don't sell too cheap, so don't offer 20 bucks for a movie. Argentine VHS of this kind of movies are really hard to get, even in Argentina.
