SOLDIER WARRIORS (Thailand, 198?)

VHS / Holland / format? / English dub / Dutch subs
[click scan for full size]



Seller's description:
Totally ignored by IMDb, this nihilistic, brutal Thailand-made/IFD-lensed commando thriller has much action, hilarious dubbing and some truly outrageous scenes.

Here, a crack anti-guerilla unit called The Five Hell Stars go into the jungle to destroy an enemy HQ. They are, as one character puts it, ‘a bunch of weirdos!’. One is a face-painted archer with a mohican, and another is this huge guy called ‘Dr Death’ – who carries a harpoon gun and wears a black KKK hood! Then he cracks up and gets killed by a bunch of dayglo-yellow-painted natives who jump him out of nowhere.

Much more bizarreness happens along the way, but I’ll leave it to you to discover that.

This full screen Greek VHS is in great condition, though the cover has fold marks visible on the photo. Apart from a German release (dubbed into German), I’m not aware of any other video release for this movie.

  1. This movie was also released in Spain looooooong time ago under the same title & dubbed into Spanish lang. I can't recall if the spanish edition was widescreen ( have to check it) but I am sure the master used for its spanish release was very good one.

Bikini girls with machine guns

Yep, this video is from the one they're watching in Tarantino's JACKIE BROWN. It's an awesome video; I mean all it is is a bunch of scantly clad sexy babes with automatic guns going: "This is an AK47" pow pow pow pow - Haha. Absolutely fantastic! xD.
