Here's a bit of a surprise; ENCOUNTERS OF THE SPOOKY KIND was ALSO released in the MADE IN HK vhs line!! It's not on the "complete" list of tapes I was given and I've never come across this tape before. And a google search doesn't turn up the cover anywhere!

Was this a tape that got pulled back or maybe just released in very few copies? Anyhoo, I've ordered it and it'll be interesting to see if the number is right after the current highest one or if there's numbers in-between (which would mean more tapes exist).

Btw, the sequel was released on the Eastern Heroes label!! Fullscreen and subtitled in English. There's still NO English friendly dvd release of it. There's a VCD which, if I remember correctly, is somewhat letterboxed. There's a great looking French dvd but sans English subs (there's a bootleg with English subs and fan subbed versions).

I got the tape today and it actually turns out to be #39. Someone forgot to put it on the original list. :lol:

HK039: Encounter of the Spooky Kind (lbx, new subs)

NB: the covers says "Encounters" (plural) but the print calls the film "ENCOUNTER". Yesterday, I watched DEADLY DREAM WOMAN (from Eastern Heroes) which on the cover is called "Deadly Dream Women. :blink: Why couldn't the British video labels get the difference between singular and plural right?? :wacko:

Not from MADE IN HONG KONG but from EASTERN HEROES's Dutch sister label, HOLLYWOOD EAST. I just won this on eBay:

Thanks! I don't know. This is the only version that I have (and I haven't even watched it yet!) :lol:

The cover promises an uncut version.
