Instead of acting as if I've actually seen it, here's a review of this Franco Nero starring super combo sci-fi actioner, TOP LINE (Alien Terminator), from Quiet Cool. A blog I discovered had placed BoGD in their blogroll without me ever visiting until a few days ago. Thanks if you happen upon this!
Anyway, this film is quite obscure with only British, Japanese, and perhaps Greek VHS releases. That is until Saturday when I discovered an American tape from 1994 from a company called "ACM Video" (purportedly) based in Las Vegas...at one time.
Unfortunately in my haste, I failed to see the cassette had a spine label marked "Kinsella's haircuts" and sure enough it was a fucking instructional video on how to give children ugly new doos. Shit. I did check the tape upon purchase, which had no face label, but I'm used to dealing with ultra cheap fly-by-nighters tossing off the importance of labeling...or stickers with decent glue.
Still, at least now I know and so do you that it exists. That is if you actually like digging through dirty boxes stuffed with grimy tapes for late '80s Italian genre flicks. Also in a bit of what!?!, notice how the ACM video attributes to the film to "Ted Archer" yet the Brit video has "Ted Archer" as Nero's character in the synopsis. Hahaha...
