  1. I did not know this came out on VHS in the US. I have a Dutch-subtitled (if I recall correctly) DVDR called SHADOW OF DEATH (with the subtitle INVISIBLE ASSASSIN). Another alternate title for it is EMPTINESS ALL AROUND. It is also fullscreen. The opening credits say "WIDE SCREEN" so it might be cropped (or meant to be matted). I'll have to find the disc again.

  2. This my favorite Mogul release! Am I the only one that likes this film?
