  1. My tape must have had some damage at the beginning and was apparently respooled, so some of the opening scene is now missing -- therefore, no time listing. If anyone wants to do an exact timing for me, I'll modify the entry.

    I'm also looking for good scans of foreign covers -- especially THE HOUSE OF THE DAMNED sleeve!
