Trap Them and Kill Them (Emanuelle e gli ultimi cannibali) (1977) - 1985 Twilight Video Beta

.
I've been battling a worsening head cold for the past few days, so in place of a ramble of words, here's another wondrous cover scan of a recent purchase from a fellow tape fiend. To my knowledge, Twilight Video only released two features on home video and I can't recall the other one right this second (anyone know?). Though Joe D'Amato's Emanuelle and the Last Cannibals is the better and more desirable of the pair.

Being distributed by the prolific Trans World Entertainment, I can only assume this branch might have represented an ill-fated attempt to capitalize on I.V.E.'s successful Thriller Video series of big box horror of the same period. This clamshell doesn't seem too hard to find popping up on eBay with regular frequency. I have three of these; two VHS copies and this Betamax. The first was a five buck swap meet find years before I ever began collecting and the second was dug out of a trash bag last year. This Betamax is in the best condition of 'em all...

Twilight also released "Black Magic Terror" (aka "The Queen of Black Magic")

Thanks guys! Black Magic Terror was the other one I was trying to remember!
