Japanese VHS release of this sci-fi horror gem. An excellent mash-up of action with lots of car chases, alien possession sfx, and some very dark humor at times. Some songs in the film are by the then somewhat new band Concrete Blonde. The original sleeve artwork is in good condition with some shelf wear, stickers and some sun fading on the spine. This vintage VHS tape plays great with minimal glitches. Black plastic clamshell case.
As an additional bonus, also included with this purchase is the Japanese VHS tape release of The Hidden II on TJC Video. This second tape does have multiple glitches through the first 10m of the tape. But a nice companion piece to the original film for your video shelves. And Michael Weldon of Psychotronic Magazine fame has a brief part in this sequel.
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.
