These two VHS covers bring back fond memories of me and my movie buddy David's unquestionable thirst to find an uncut copy of this notorious film back in the day. We must have gone through several versions (including the heavily cut US version The Grim Reaper) before discovering Midnight Video's composite print, which I still remember receiving in the mail about 15 years ago. Of course D'Amato's infamous and still effective shocker can now easily be found uncut on a special edition DVD, but there was nothing like the hunt for a lot of us...
While we are at, here is a scan of the British VHS copy of Absurd, the semi-sequel to Anthropophagous starring savage George Eastman and lovely Annie Belle...a film that has still yet to see a proper Region 1 DVD release.
Speaking of more exploitative titles. Since I have a overwhelming amount of these covers and posters now, I will be using Harry Moseby Confidential to upload some of the more outrageous ones from the seventies over the next few months for those interested. I have already posted half a dozen or so with more coming.
