Cool art, Sno-Line is one of those rarely seen Vestron tapes. Drug films are always interesting but i don´t own this one.

Just bought Frank STALLONE film The Pink Chiquitas (1987). Comes with a cool cover art and i hope that it´s bonkers and fun stuff.

Never noticed there were alternate designs for Airplane 2..
By the way, Airplane was originally released here under the Flying High title as well.

How about this one :

 -

Night Warriors (1983) directed by Paul Donovan

A year before i started renting movies myself i watched a bunch at my cousin's house who was two years older than i am.
Night Warriors is one of the earliest memories i have of watching rental tapes. This must have been around 1985 i think.
(keep in mind i was still only 8 or 9 years old, and we only had two public network TV channels in those days..
cable TV was still a couple of years away, so there was no way you could ever see something like Night Warriors on TV)
For years i didn't know which movie this was, but later i found out this was actually released under several
alternate titles, such as Self-Defense and Siege. But i will always remember it as Night Warriors !
I have not been able to watch Night Warriors ever since, so this must be at least thirty years ago,
but i remember it as an ultra gritty urban action thriller, not unlike Death Wish 2 or Vigilante,
both of which were released roughly around the same time.

I found the trailer on Youtube : www.youtube.com/watch?v=zFJg-lU4J7U

Looks pretty cool, right ? [Smile]

I´ve actually seen this canadian film. Never heard the Night Warriors title before.
We had it on tape back in the early 90s but i´m not sure if it´s still somewhere (maybe bro has it).
I remember that it made somekind of impact, definitely would like to re-watch it.

I've got the - siege on vhs and its an absolutely awesome action thriller,quite gritty and violent,this is one that certainly needs a DVD or blu ray release.

Not watched it for a year or 2 but I do remember the big guy from stegman's gang in - class of 1984 is in it!

Have you guys ever seen the 1983 Canadian thriller - cross country as that's another pretty cool flick!

Now that is awesome, Warrior ! That's a true collector's item, i'm sure !

aTomiK, which title did it have in Finland.. do you remember ?

It is getting confusing though, all those alternate titles..

Airplane was released here as Flying High.. Vigilante was called Streetfighters..
Sno-Line has been released on UK home video as Deathline while the Imdb has it listed as Texas Godfather..
and Night Warriors is apparently better known as Siege or Self-Defense..

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086276/releaseinfo?ref_=tt_dt_dt#akas - I reckon either under the title of - siege or the alternate title of - self defense,I've got a feeling it was only released as night warriors in Johnny's home country of the Netherlands!

It was called "Saarto" here in Finland which is more or less a translation from "Siege".

Alternate poster art, feels like a completely different film [Smile]

Judging from that poster design, the movie should have been called Yuppies In Peril ! [Big Grin]

Boy has this film got some different titles and cover art,you can see how some of these movies get lost in the mix.

That - self defense poster art at first I thought - wow! that really sucks - but if you look at it for a while (say about a few years) it does actually start to grow on you! [Big Grin]

Well, that particular poster design is actually pretty good.. The problem is it just doesn't seem to connect
with the actual movie.. or at least not the way i remember it.

Yeah pretty good for a laugh [Big Grin] - your right johnny it makes it look more like a yuppie in peril flick,from what i remember there's no one in the movie who even resembles either character on the cover!

Johnny have you ever seen the other film I mentioned 1983s - cross country - https://youtu.be/qTLOsQaSkSM its a Canadian sleazefest which is a total blast to watch and features everyone's favourite Canadian villain Michael Ironside who here plays against type as an investigating cop!

It's almost like that particular design was created by someone who didn't see the actual movie..
but did it solely based on reading a synopsis or something.

I'm not familiar with Cross Country, no.. but there sure are some names on that poster that do ring a bell.
Richard Beymer played Benjamin Horne (the hotel owner) in Twin Peaks, and Nina Axelrod was the girl from Motel Hell.

and the other one i picked up really cheap - 1 uk pound and 47 pence included postage so cheaper than a 6 pint of milk - best shot aka hoosiers uk quad poster.

always really liked this movie and only knew it as best shot as a teen only later in life to realize it had the original title of -hoosiers.

Yes the first time I heard about this film was on Premiere where it was called Best Shot years later I spent time trying to find it to buy but could not find it under that name only the name of Hoosiers I found the film very good indeed one of my all time favourite s. It's nice to see the poster for the movie though.

Adventures in Babysitting?!

My mistake... Trespass is a completely different film. For some reason I have them mixed up in my head. Considering they aren't even the same plot I can't see why.
