I went to the trouble of buying the old Avco Embassy tape and then weeks later had to move down to London and sell my thousands of tapes so never got to see it - was it any good?

I remember seeing it in my youth and it being particularly atmospheric and entertaining Copies these days are like hens teeth! I'll try and track one down on Ebay and let you know if it is worth it!

I've still got my old Embassy VHS of this, in a really nice box design with a big eye peeking through a keyhole on the front cover.

It's a lost gem, one of the best slasher/monster movies of it's time for me. Makes a nice companion piece to TOWER OF EVIL in some respects with it being set on a deserted island.

Count my vote in for a release of this one.

Welcome Eidolon!

You've further compunded my misery at not having my tape anymore! I liked the Avco Embassy spines - they looked rather nice lined up. Quite an odd range of films though for a company then owned by Coca Cola I always thought...

Anyway the plan is to push a new label of mayhem so please suggest away for titles, extras and whatever else comes to mind and we'll see if we can't recreate some 80s inspired fun.

Thanks, that was a quick reply!

I have quite a few I'd like, most by browsing across my VHS selection and seeing what's not on DVD yet. Things like THE DEAD PIT, PRISON, and a forgotten anthology hosted by John Hurt called FRIGHTMARES. Nobody else seems to have heard of that one?....

Ah Prison! I'd love to do that along with some other of the better Charles Band 'classics' (ahem) but I the problem is always wanting to buy lots of crap at the same time and not having the money. Still we are out and about shopping so that's reminded me to check them out!

Presumably it would pass uncut now. No idea what the previous cuts were.

Plus I thought the video was pre '84? I don't recall a BBFC on it. Could be wrong though....
