Was this ever released on DVD,as per the DVD cover art on IMDb
25 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I have the old VHS copy of this film. Many years ago I typed the movie title into google and a DVD version was advertised on Amazon France. The exact same cover as featured here as the cover art. I contemplated buying it..and so the next day I went back on Amazon and it was no longer advertised. Still kicking myself to this day. This is one movie I do a search for once a year ,just to see if anyone has found an upgrade..but it just isn't to be.
