    can anyone comment on this box or has bought it? i see it has a price of 15$, which means that this will probably be sub-VHS quality, has some cool titles :

    Jungle Virgin Force (1983)
    Hell Hole (1978)
    Ghost Ninja (1981)
    Temple of Hell (1983)
    Cannibal Curse (1985)
    Dog Called Vengeance (1976)
    Scorpion Thunderbolt (1983)
    The Devil (1981)
    The Rapist (1994)
    Primitives (1978)

    All of those movies were on their earlier Tales of Voodoo sets. The quality is pretty crappy.

    Thanks for the warning. I've never watched anything from the Videoasia label. From what I hear, they are best avoided.

    I have all the Tales Of Voodoo sets and am quite glad I bought them (Cheap!). The quality ain't great (VHS-sub Vhs) but some of the films are quite fun. If you can watch the Brentwood sets, then you can watch these as well. If not, then skip `em.

    These are bootlegs, plain and simple. Some of the movies are taken from VCD sources. Some are dub, some in their original language, and there is at least one movie that has a language on the left channel, and another in the right (basically how VCDs are encoded to include two languages)! You'd think VA would have at least fixed that. Some films are edited, optical fogging to be exact. Saying that, $15 is still a decent deal for the set. Just don't expect anything great quality wise.

    This box set is the five Tales of Voodoo DVDs, just now with a very cheap box packaging. Each dvd inside is shrink wrapped.
