Has anyone seen this Japanese, made for TV adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft's "The Shadow Over Innsmouth"? (one of the stories where the plot for the recent movie Dagon was derived). I've been salivating over this for a few years now and I am absolutly dying to see it, furthermore anyone know where I can find a copy?


Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!

I have both LURKER IN THE LOBBY tapes, and it's not on either of those (which for some reason - I thought it was). Good post. Now, can anyone help us out?

Give it up Christ, nobody knows :p

I would love to see this too but I cant find any info on it. I would try to get a bootleg of it but I doubt it would be subtitled or dubbed so it wouldnt do me much good.

Cool. I didnt know this exsisted but now that I do I'd love to see this. A Japanese interpretation of Lovecraft could be quite an interesting watch.

I will check with someone at TBS's Tokyo office to see if a copy is available. It's probably out there in VHS without English subtitles as most Japanese TV series have been released here in Japan on VHS. DVD is another story. They are only just beginning to catch on and are still quite expensive.
