Japanese VHS release of this under the radar horror film. Second-hand bookstore clerk Virginia Clayton (Jenny Wright of Near Dark fame) becomes absorbed in the book ‘I, Madman’ by Malcolm Brand (Randall William Cook). In the book, the deranged, deformed Dr. Kessler is obsessed with beautiful actress Anna Templar and kills victims, sewing part of each victim’s face onto his own. But as Virginia continues to read, someone starts to emulate the killings in the book, targeting the people around her. Sort of like an upside-down world version of Never Ending Story. The sleeve artwork is printed on a silver stock and is in good condition with some shelf wear and stickers. This vintage VHS tape plays great with minimal glitches. The oversized original black plastic clamshell case has seen better days with some serious dings and cracks on the corners, top and bottom.
As per most vintage Japanese film releases on vhs or dvd, this film may contain some small optical pixelation or fogging to obscure any lower full frontal nudity.
