Sorry, I missed your post two days ago. :wacko:

Yeah, that was probably me. I was looking for both those movies. I've already got other versions of them so I won't pay ridiculous prices though. Which auction site did you see it on? eBay?

PS: the search function is toast. You need to use Google search: Cinehound + "whatever you're searching"

Wise policy, I'd say :up:

"Calamity of Snake" was up for sale on Yahoo HK at HK$79 (+ HK$1 auction fee) until 21 March. No one bid, and it was one of those sellers who don't ship abroad...

"The Snake Girl" is still on sale from HK$95 (Instant Buy at HK$99) on Buystation.com.hk. Most of the VCDs on Buystation are from this seller. He/She has a lot of rare stuff, but I find his/her prices rather high

I believe Buystation accepts registration from anywhere in the world, and this seller ships abroad and accepts PayPal. Buystation's admin seems loose compared to Yahoo or eBay, so I treat this site as a mere message board.

I recently bought and received the english OS tape of Samurai Blood, Samurai Guts. I watched it yesterday and wounder if that tape is uncut? It was a great movie but I read a review on IMDB that said it should be chopped of heads in the movie, and that where not in the version I watched. It said that the movie was uncut on the back of the cover, but that many times is wrong. There where alot of strange cutting, but ones again this is an wierd asian movie, so that what you can expect.

Here is the review: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0079849/reviews
