Default SIEGE aka SELF DEFENSE 1982

Has anyone sen this little Canadian lost gem Siege from 1982?
I have it on both swedish x-rental unfortunatelly censored and an original NTSC tape unfortunatelly in a bad quality!
The ntsc version when transfered to vhs, studio made a big misstake when they put this movie on vhs!
They zoomed in the picture to much, that means all details on both left and right side are left out, out of focus!
I just watched the entire movie on youtube and it's the same crappy version as my ntsc tape!
If you haven't seen this movie you have missed out on a great flick.

This movie must get a proper reliese on dvd in the next future!
I know it was reliesed in germany on dvd, but as a bootlegg I guess?
Was it ever reliesed in the UK?
Censored version?

This movie can be watched on youtube.

A pretty decent effort from what i recall and sadly somewhat neglected. Although i last watched Thorn E.M.I.'s pre-cert version of Siege in the '90s and have long since passed this copy on. My loss now i guess looking back.

I believe the film's main bad guy was played by Doug Lennox, who was later a villain in both the first and third Police Academy movies.
