olaf itenbach classic
on March 9, 2010
the cover-art is funny-gross, however the information is a bit lacking on the back.
no format notification(ntsc or pal)
no region code status(1 or 0)
the year this claims of release is 1997(is this right?, i so thought this was released in 1992, maybe i am wrong)
originally released by dead alive productions on vhs and dvd(the same people whom released traces of death part 1 and 2 on vhs which i also still own).
out of all the super-gore films i have seen and purchased over the years, they are tributes compared to this german splatter-shocker.
one thing needs to be known to all whom plan to purchase this edition, it is clear to me this was taken from an out of print vhs, because it does not appear to be remastered, just transfered to dvd.
the inside packaging is very nice and contains a brief history about the film, director and history of how american took-to-it intially here in america.
if your vhs copy is worn or you don't want to go public domain(some ioffer sellers seem to be still stocking it,"are they breaking the rules of the bernie act code by not pulling it due to this release version"? just curious), then this edition is right up your ally and at a reasonable price.
the subtitles can be turned on and off(i turn them on because, sadly, i cannot speak nor understand one word of german(my fault, i am a terrible pollyglot(bi or multi-lingual).
please keep in mind this film is X-rated and NOT to be purchased/viewed by anybody under 18 years of age.
so grab a nice cold beverage,a cool snack, kick-back ,and have your senses rightously assaulted by a over-the-top
splatter-gore film which was banned for 20 years in the very country the director hails from(i feel for ya olaf ittenbach), i should know, i am a cannibal corpse fanatic and their first three albums are still banned in your country(ouch!!!).
the burning moon....for the moon burns and we are the willing victims of olaf ittenbach's horrible visions.
buy this NOW!!!
lifer horror fanatic!
