A bearded tale - Nasty 80's Hong Kong

Gather around children, and I'll tell you a tale.

The night was at an end, and suddenly my head began ringing, I was hung over and work was 1 hour away. But it was the alarm clock, not my drunken head. The time was at hand, and I was ready for a battle I had dreaded for 6 days! I pulled myself out of bed, staggering toward the door - there it was! The dreaded computer!

It was blinking - telling me to get it out of sleep mode. Damn you computer! You have won me many a battle, but you have also lost me some of the most precious! Will you fail me again, you bastard?

I get ready for battle - 22 minutes left. I go back to bed.

I awaken again to see that damn computer. I'm getting nervous now. 13 minutes left - I go back to bed.

I awaken yet again, staggering, once again. The computer is taunting me! 4 minutes left! I get ready.

The battle is at hand, and I'm nervous. More nervous then I've been for months. Haven't really been to such a serious battle as this. I make my attack! It's swift, precise and it's seems like I have won. 20 seconds left! No - my attack was to early. I'm holding on for dear life. 10 seconds - I'm still safe

9 seconds - I can't take this much longer.
8 seconds - Oh god!
7....
6....

The battle is won!

I go back to bed. Only dreading work now!

To make a long story short, I won this:



















This is the rare Japanese VHS of THE RAPE AFTER. What I've heard is a nasty 80's Hong Kong flick. I've wanted it for a long time. And finally it's mine! Unfortunately it has no subtitles, but this is the only way you can see it uncut and letterboxed. But I can handle it, I have seen many rare movies without subtitles before - most of them are fairly easy to follow.

Big congrats!
Somebody ought to take the subs from the HK release and put them on a dvdr of the Japanese version.

Patrick B said...

Thank you :)

Been waiting for a long time now. But I knew spiral had more in storage. He always have tons of the same movies.

I wonder where he gets it all.

Or it should just get released on DVD :/ I wish!

Jack J said...

Well, he's a Brit who lives in Japan and he just goes round town and look for stuff (and I believe he trawls Japanese websites like Amazon as well). I'm not so sure he's always got "tons" but sometimes it does seem that way.

Patrick B said...

Goes around town in Japan. Sounds like a delight.

Patrick B said...

Thank you very much :) cinediondo is also one of my favourite blogs, so I'll be happy to make you a link at my blog.

On a slightly different note: I see you're linking to two Mondo Macabro sites. There is actually ANOTHER ONE! Their old UK site from when they put out PAL DVD's in the UK.

They don't use it anymore and they don't link to in either so nobody knows that it's still up there BUT I HAVE FOUND IT! It's right here:

Patrick B said...

I know. I just wasn't sure if it was necessary using it if they don't update it.

Jack J said...

Well, that's entirely up to you of course. I just wanted to let you know about it. And altho they don't update the UK site it does contain all the info about their PAL disks. The US site doesn't contain that info.

Patrick B said...

Then I'll add it! Thanks for the info buddy :)

Patrick B said...

Mats Helge? Trodde Fredrik drev siden alene jeg?

Uansett - Synd at du ikke likte filmen. Kjedelig å bruke så mye penger når filmen i enden ikke var bra. Jeg syns den var helt fantastisk! Så det faktum at jeg også brukte over 100 dollar, gjorde meg ingenting. Kanskje den var treg, men jeg likte den trege mørke stemningen. Storkoste meg! Seventh Curse ja! Haha. Absolutt et mesterverk - Det skal jeg si meg enig i.

Jack J said...

Er Mats Helge ikke svensker???

Jack J said...

In any case, "Mats" skal i alt fald ha tak for linket på bloggen!

Patrick B said...

Ja, godt å se at det er aktitivet på Piknikk med døden :) Lenge siden det har skjedd noe der.
