Shadow of the Hawk (1976) DVD

I don't know how I could've missed this being released!

Amazon is now selling "Shadow of the Hawk", the freaky 1976 Jan Michael Vincent horror movie. Overall, it's cheezy stuff, but has some great spooky moments. This movie frightened me as a kid, especially that evil spirit with the white mask whenever it appeared. I've been wanting an official release for over a decade. Sadly, it's Manufacture-on-Demand DVD-R media.

Here's the cover artwork, which looks like some kid colored it with crayons.


Here's the custom cover I made for it many years ago for my recorded-off-Superchannel DVD-R.

Looks fun - I'll grab it when the price is right.

It would make a good MGM Double Feature with The White Buffalo.

I bought it recently for under $14 at ImportCDs.com. The 16x9 progressive transfer is pretty solid, it's good to see this one again after so many years.

This is one of those releases that just "plays" though...no menu of any kind on the disc.

That coverart you posted looks far better Doombear. I'd love to have that in hi-res.

Just got around to watching. What a great little hidden gem. That ghost mask Indian dood is so creepy, love it. How about the guy in the bear suit

Also, how much does Marilyn Hassett look like Alyssa Milano? Uncanny.
