This is a cool John Carpenter film with a Japanese VHS release. When a mysterious cylinder is found in a Los Angeles church by student scientific researchers, all hell breaks loose. Watch for a cool cameo by Alice Cooper as a crazy street person. Jim Danforth did the matte paintings, and yes, John Carpenter did the original score in conjunction with Alan Howarth. Filmed on location in Long Beach. The original sleeve artwork is in good condition with some stickers and minimal wear along with some sun fading to the spine. VHS tape has been previewed and plays great with minimal glitches. Original blue plastic Towa branded clamshell case is in good condition, but the outer acetate sleeve is a bit loose… making for blurrier photos.
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.
