Nameless Media presents two new limited editions that are "almost exclusives" for the upcoming Week-end of Hell convention where Dolph attends next week. First one gets my vote:

U are right !!! The old VHS covers are the best !!! Someone says - that was the time when covers were better than movie itself ( I mean the VHS era '80s-'90s) !!! In the case of Red Scorpion both of them - VHS COVER AND MOVIE- were good !!! Joseph Zito did a good job on this, reminded me his work in Missing in Action (1984) starring Chuck Norris which is considered by fans one of his best movies and the best in Missing in Action Trilogy !!!

30 years ago today was the French theatrical release (in a heavily cut 92 min version), no publicity to announce it (though in magazines for the past year) and I happened to visit Paris with my family when I saw large posters of Dolph on street and cinema marquees. It sold 105,000 tickets and only ran for 2 weeks and I managed to see it (alone in the theatre) the night before the movie was taken out.
