JAPANESE VHS SLEEVES

Here is a rarity I have only seen one other time. And unfortunately, I sold my copy long before I did my standard scan of each sleeve so this digital photo will have to do. Anyway, it's ZENABEL (1970) on the DAIEI VIDEO label (STAR MOVIE SELECTION by SALKIND). An early goofy period comedy by RUGGERO DEODATO with lots of topless women on horseback.

Sorry for the small picture size. For some reason I couldn't get the File Attachments browser to accept my initial sized image... and kept reducing it and reducing it until this size finally worked... but it's only 220kb. Is the built-in picture browser having some kind of glitch?

Hey Paul, nice to see you here!

The image is not loading for me...your best bet is uploading a larger one to www.imageshack.us and just posting the image.

Hey Louis, how are ya? Yea, I see lots of familiar faces on here all the time. Mostly been a lurker and reader all these years since I joined. When Miltos sent out his "get active or get kicked out" message last week, I decided to participate on this forum. This is my favorite by far and always has been. So much to read and see.

Anyway, you can't see the image, huh? I guess I will have to use imageshack after all. Do they restrict image content, ie: nudity, etc? I guess I will find out. I plan on eventually loading up a lot more sleeve scans when I get more time.

Hope this works a bit better than the built-in File Attachments browser in the forum.

Sorry for the Z-Grade watermarks... it's the only way I have lots of my sleeve scans and old photos saved.

Another rarity sold off quite a while ago, hence the lower-res digital camera images instead of flatbed scans that I did later on.

Up next... BARRACUDA (1978) aka: THE LUCIFER PROJECT on the rare EP CO. LTD. label. A somewhat laughable killer fish in the sea saga... a poor man's JAWS mixed with an environmental conspiracy theory. But if you really want a laugh, read the brief description written by a somewhat hobbled English language writer in Japan. Just beautiful. Perhaps the best synopsis ever written. And, it's in COLLOR too!!

COBRA MISSION (1985) -- TEICHIKU VIDEO -- Nam actioner directed by FABRIZIO DE ANGELIS and starring JOHN STEINER and DONALD PLEASENCE. Nice cover, but bad digital pics on my part. Sold long ago and no flatbed scan at the time. Damn.

MASTER OF THE WORLD (1983) -- SPO HOME VIDEO. Sorry guys, these digi-photos look particularly fuzzy, and no, 3-D glasses won't help. Although if this film had been shot in 3-D, it would have given a lot more dimension to the brain eating scene.

THE MUTILATOR (1985) aka: FALL BREAK -- TOKUMA COMMUNICATIONS / TCC VIDEO. Fantastic sleeve art on this gory slasher. One of my favorites. If I only had the flatbed scan of this one. Yea, I know... kinda blurry again. It's all I've got. Sold back in '05.

ORLOFF AND THE INVISIBLE MAN (1971) aka: THE INVISIBLE DEAD -- INFERNO / NETWORK CORP / EUROCINE VIDEO INTERNATIONAL -- Here's where a sleeve far outshines the actual film starring HOWARD VERNON. Love, love, love the Japanese sleeve art for this one.

Well, it's way past my bedtime. I will add some more Japanese VHS tomorrow. I eventually will start dropping full scan sleeves. Just wanted to share some of the tapes I have sold long ago that I only had low-res digi photos of in my archives. May have a few more still... if you guys can live with the occasional less-than-sharp image.
