does anybody know anywhere to get INdian horror films? I've seen clips from a few and they look hilarious. I've not had much luck finding indian DVD suppliers.

They were recommended in Video Watchdog so I think they are reliable. I haven't bought anything from them yet myself though.

I've had a look, buit can't find any reference. The UK 100 EYES DVD is listed at indiandvdfilms.com as not having English subs, THE EYES has no info either way (it's not listed at cdguru at all). AKS is apparently awful quality for the UK release. I'm not having much luck....

What's the name of the musical rip-off of Fulci's The Psychic? Its supposed to be quite a thing indeed!

The front of the DVD list Eng. Subs in big letters. The Eyes also have Eng Subs. I have both and they have Eng subs. 100 Days is the Fulci remake BTW.

the cover of 100 DAYS at indiandvdfilms.com isn't the same as the one you show. Is your's the UK disk? Same with the eyes? ANy opinions on the quailty of AKS? I haven't found an alternative to the UK one yet.

I see! Indiaweekly.com sells the U.S. version I guess. Maybe the UK versions don't have subs. They are NTSC anyway. But you can watch them on your system in the UK and Indiaweekly ships worldwide. I've never seen a good release of AKS, but the only problem with the one at Indiaweekly is that you have to switch your DVD player off of the animorphic setting and it looks fine.

A buddy of mine told me about the following site:

www.indianblockbuster.com

I was able to get DON for 15 bucks! They also have the Fulci remake 100 DAYS

They only ship via UPS, but they have a hugh selection!

The only Bollywood horror I've seen on dvd is Bandh Darwaza, which is a vampire flick from the Ramsay Bros. They pretty much did nothing but horror films in India throughout the 80's including there own versions of the Exorcist and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Sadly, these are not on dvd.

Hey Poorlogic, isn't your Avitar from For Your Height Only? I'm quite sure that's the only film to feature a 3 foot Philippino version of Jackie Chan.

You could have gotten DON for much cheaper than $15 at India Weekly. As for FOR YOUR HEIGHT ONLY, I can't find the OOP DVD anywhere :)
