Notes (partially cannibalized from my old Mondo Digital review)
"Nothing in the film is faked; all the men and the craftsman are really Naples contrabands! Every night they gave a bag with money to Infascelli's widow to pay the production, and every day a part of them worked for Fulci as he directed.
"Fulci said that in all his career he never had as good a producer as the contrabands..."
Looking for Contraband on VHS? It's not readily available, but the aforementioned Blue Underground DVD can be had for pretty cheap!
