  1. I look forward to rewatching this. Glad I bought the DVD years ago, had no idea it became an OOP collector's item till I checked Amazon now.

    Unfortunately, a lot of cult/genre films from New Zealand are extremely hard to come by in North America at the moment. They're either OOP (this, Peter Jackson's early films) or have never gotten a Region 1 release to begin with (NEXT OF KIN; the one featured in NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD, not the Patrick Swayze one).
