Very hard to find even on DVD. I'll upgrade if a BD or at least a newly remastered 16x9 DVD is released.
*N=New to collection :-D, U=Upgrade from DVD :), DD=Double Dipping :wink:, R=Replacement for damaged disc :-?

Mosaico Media is on pirate labels list.

And this is a bad indicator:

I like the movie and took the risk when ordering it with 5 others. Lucky I got this only for €5.40.

At least the sleeve looks legit, doesn't it? :lol:

I've got burned several times (about 10) when buying from Amz Spain and have stopped buying from them since 2015. I've been "luckier" with my purchase from Italy. So far, I've got about 5 DVDs that might be bootleg (including the one posted). The thing is, they had been releasing obscure/forgotten and hard-to-find 70s and 80s movies that were on my wish list. I only order from Italy occasionally. Soon, I'll stop ordering from them too. Purchasing DVD and BD from these two countries is like stepping into a minefield :x

Btw, the French DVD also has similar run time and specs, could it also be a bootleg?
