Hi John

Body Snatchers was released as a full feature and 2x400 digest. The feature print is miles better print wise to the digest. The others I am unsure about some sound familiar but it may be just a trailer release on 8mm or 16mm.

There a creepshow trailer for sale on ebay, seems pricey, but I guess I have no idea the value of it in the first place:

All of these are around on 16mm, but I was just wondering if any had been released as full features on 8mm.
I seem to recall seeing an 8mm of Dr. Terror's House Of Horrors
listed somewhere before, but can't remember now if it was a full feature or a digest.
Mike, do you have any idea who released The Body Snatcher feature?

Dr. Terror's House Of Horrors does exist on Super 8, but I believe it's exceptionally rare - possibly only two prints, I think I saw a new one at a Derann Open Day once. I'm not certain but I think I may have heard that Derann tried printing a couple from a negative they had access to, but Derek wasn't happy with the quality and therefore didn't print any more.

A Vault of Horror trailer is on a rare Thunderbird trailer reel.

"The Body Snatcher" full feature was released in the UK by Mountain Films. Nice prints too.

There was a F/L Spanish release of "House of Wax", not sure if it was 'legit' or not, but I remember the late Tony Churcher telling me he had bought 2 prints, and only one had an English track, so he re-recorded the 2nd print using two GS1200's side by side, so there must be a few of these around in Europe.

yep I think I agree with Jason Schmidt , that trailer looks pricey considering it is on Super8 ,maybe if it had actual pics from the film being sold that might make the "wow" factor?, but if it is bought then it is the right price! [Smile]

Cheers from me in New Zealand :-)

I wish I could say I was the owner of this print.

Grizzly is on eBay now unfortunately it's German sound + he's asking 50.00 starting price.

Terry - That's great box art, and above-average for those Dutch releases. Any idea of what the format was, as this could be a self-contained 400'
