    Hi Guys, can anybody help me? I'm trying to locate an original theatrical trailer for this. All I have found so far are Troma's badly made-up new trailers.

    I'm sure there must have been an original trailer for this at some point - did it ever appear on an old video release for example?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Here's an original TV Spot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2pz9HmiWzI

    That might be as close as the original trailer as you're likely to find online.

    Somebody probably has the original 1981 non-Tromatized trailer somewhere...but if it's online if must be hard to locate.

    You're not working on a new release by any chance, are you? :D

    No, sadly not. It's hard to believe just how many trailers have vanished over the years.

    Oh, it was! I remember seeing that in Sept. of '81 and the opening scene's music seemed straight out of '79.
    I only recall seeing the TV spot one time a few days before it opened.
    "Visiting Hours" had lots of TV promo. I remember seeing the spots weeks up to opening Memorial Day weekend.

    There was definitely trailers and promos for this when they used to double feature it with Fatal Games on Cinemax back in the 80s.
