Same goes for DEAD HEAT...that is another film i wrote about in my little piece on the most mythical missing gore moments.

All this is very interesting, Wayne, as this is one of my all time fave flicks. I have the Aussie vhs and a dvd of this. So these are the shortened version, eh? Was a fully uncut version ever released in any format?

Here's one I know we'd all like to see (I know Mr. Jack J will love it)! And NO, I don't have the actual tape! I got this full-size scan from one Mr. Spiralheadcase!

*And a request: Can anyone post a full-size scan of that awesome Hong Kong VHS release of ANTHROPOPHAGUS?

:wub: :wub: :wub:

WAUW!!! I've left out checking this thread the past week or so and I can see that was clearly a mistake :lol: :lol:

Thanks for that scan, Steve!!! :hello!:

Actually, from what I remember, this was one of the least entertaining Indo horrors. BUT, I saw it years and years ago. Maybe I should dig it out of storage and take another look...

You remember correctly. It was alright but not one of the best Indo horrors. But as I said; alright i.e. fairly good.

yeah it went for pretty good coin, 100 USD +.

Havent seen it yet, btw, was this ever dubbed in english? jap. VHS has indo language.

No, never dubbed. The us DVD uses the Jap. VHS and has a black bar over the Jap. subs. It's a terrible DVD cos due to the black bar quite a bit of the picture is covered. :angry:

but jack, I believe there is no loss of picture information, because the japanese usually just put the whole picture above and put the subtitles in the low widescreen bar (and I guess this is just covered on the DVD so you cannot see the subs). sorry for the terrible english, hope you understand :)

Well if you're right then that's just dandy!! I haven't watched the Japanese version but that would certainly be in the terrible DVDs advantage (there is no excuse for the 10 times the picture disappears in pixelation fuck-up though! :angry: ).

No reason for apologies about the lingo. Mein deutsch is so schlimmerlich schlimm dass es ist nur forchtbar. Oder ist dass vurchtbar. Or something else. :lol: :lol:

But you have for sure seen movies on japanese tapes in 2.35 ratio...they usually have a very small bar upside and large one down, to put the subtitles into the big lower black bar and not in the picture....so if there is just a small bar on the upper picture and a big on the lower, the DVD should be ok...

Sure I have but I read a review of that US dvd and the reviewer said that a part of the picture had been covered up so I just bought into that explanation. No, you shouldn't do something like that without checking. But I did. :hi:

That's an awesome cover for IMPOSSIBLE WOMAN!! :wub:

I really like that movie and have got the Greek tape which carries the original version of the film (in Mandarin + Eng. subs). I've read that there is an international print with new scenes with Gwilo actors. I assume the Japanese tape is the original version?

Btw, the Japanese title has a "2" at the end. I take it they released it as a sequel to another (unrelated) film in Japan. Do any of you know which one?
