Go into the wilds of Pennsylvania...breathe some fresh AIR (Video)...

.
Traveled way out today and ran across an old guy in a van with these five big boxes in a USPS Priority Mail box with "VHS" scrawled on one of the flaps. After activating "I will kill anyone who tries to touch these as I'm looking at them" mode and quietly shitting an angular brick in my shorts, I gave the guy the handsome sum of five crispy Washingtons and walked away like a boss.

I've seen the AIR Video big box of León Klimovsky's Blood Moon (Werewolf's Shadow, 1971) pop up on eBay before, but have never seen their Carnation Killer (Thriller series episode, The Colour of Blood, 1973) prior to today. The first two chopsockies, Kickmaster 44 and Hong Kong Hitman (Stoner, 1974), are also from AIR. Little Mad Guy (1982) is on a label I've never heard of before called "Cobra Video". The box says they're a division of Premiere Entertainment. If it's the same Premiere that I'm aware of, it might be of Canadian origin. Anyway, I'm all still giddy and freaking out...
