Japanese VHS release of a Canadian-produced horror gem follows a Frankenstein theme that involves the experiments of robotics engineer Alex Whyte of NASA in the creation of a cyborg. The special effects on this gem were created by STAN WINSTON, and are quite good, even if the Z-Grade premise has been seen before. BTW, the name of the production company for this gem was Frank & Stein Film Productions. Nice touch. The original sleeve artwork is in good condition with some sticker and minimal wear along the bottom. Spine has some sun fading. VHS tape has been previewed and plays great with minimal glitches. Sleeve scan is for reference only. Plastic clamshell case.
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.
