There's a tape from Argentina's Video Uno that's labeled Brutal Sorcery, but according to Raro VHS it's actually something else. If anyone has any additional information on what film this really is (the box synopsis and photos apparently neither describe nor illustrate the movie contained on the cassette), please let us know!

  1. I've just rewatched my OS vhs and there's a very obvious censorship cut in a chicken eating scene. The same cut is on the Canto language OS vcd version. Bummer! I wish these films would get proper dvd or bluray releases.
