From VHS to VOD #3

I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I can often spend hours upon hours trawling through iTunes looking for new movies to buy… Usually I’ll randomly come across a title I haven’t seen in years and use the “Cast & Crew” links to make my way down the rabbit hole to the more obscure side of Apple’s digital movie service.

Now whilst many will decry that iTunes is a terrible VOD service due to Apple’s desire to lock its audience to their platforms, if you have an Apple TV or iPad be aware – there are some truly obscure films hidden away in the depths of the vast collection of movies. Some of which have been made available in the UK for the first time since VHS and a Lot that have been added to the service in their original uncut form!

Demonoid

Or to be completely accurate, Demonoid, Messenger of Death (aka Macabro)! This trailer was prepared by the New World Pictures crew, but for whatever reason the picture ended up going out through another distributor. It’s director Alfredo Zacharias’s somewhat less impoverished follow up to The Bees, his earlier Us-Mexican co-production for New World. This one’s another possessed-crawling-hand-in-need-of-an-exorcism movie, with the always appealing Samantha Eggar running around lamenting how quickly she went from William Wyler to Alfredo Zacharias. Nsfw!

Dick Cook, Carnival to Make Kim Ki-duk Chinese Fantasy Film (Exclusive)

Dick Cook, Carnival to Make Kim Ki-duk Chinese Fantasy Film (Exclusive)
Dick Cook Studios and its Chinese partner Film Carnival are to make “Who Is God?,” an anti-war film that will mark the Chinese movie making debut of South Korean maverick Kim Ki-duk (“The Isle,” “Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter.. and Spring,” “Pieta”.)

The film is set to have a budget of some $37 million (RMB250 million), which by some estimates is three times the total Kim has spent on production in his entire 20-film indie career.

The principal financier of the picture is Huafeng Investment Consultation, a securities firm based in Hangzhou. The city is home to both Carnival and e-commerce giant Alibaba.

Kim describes the film as “the story of a conflict of faith – the wars between the tribes that worship nature and the kingdom that advocates religion… with plot lines (that) are richly interwoven with philosophy and Buddhist allegory.”

Film Carnival will be responsible for the production, with Dcs involved in pre-production,

Chris Haberman's VHS Misadventures

Need to ask a favor, folks. Here’s the deal: Months ago my wife and I and our friend John, whom you will meet later, decided to utilize our precious vacation time to rent a car and drive from our native Kentucky to Colorado. The goal was just to see what happened along the way. We departed on a Friday night with no reservations and a minimum of must-see destinations (the Badlands were imperative; the rest could be bypassed according to our whims at that time, at that moment).

I had no idea what was in store for me. Waking up in a national park to find an accusatory mountain goat looking in your filthy SUV’s window is one thing. Finding an ancient video store willing to sell hundreds of VHS tapes for $1.99 each is utterly another.

I present to you, dear, dear readers ... The Video Vendor.

We were in Newcastle,
