Ahh, I've finally tracked down an uncut print of Cirio H. Santiago's NAKED VENGEANCE!!! I'm told the only uncut version is this unrated US NTSC tape. All European and Aussie video tapes carry the toned down R rated version. Boo-hoo!!! There are no official DVD release either. I also bought this from ZDD hoping I'd get the uncut version but unfortunatly thier print is the same toned down for our own protection version. :/ (and yes I should have asked first. Please kick me!!).
Anyhoo, screw that cos I'm getting the uncut version now, haha. Oh, and follower of this blog, Nick Nicholson, is in this as well. And if that's not enough our good buddy Fred Adelman said about NAKED VENGEANCE:
Mr. Santiago has directed over 50 features (many for Roger Corman) and is highly-regarded in his homeland of the Phillipines. I consider NAKED VENGEANCE to be his crowning achievement.
Read Fred's review here.
Wauw, I can't wait! (and yes I own the cut down version and no I haven't watched it, I simply refuse to!).
PS: And hey and welcome to everyone who is now a follower of this wee blog. I have no idea why this is still the only site in Cyberspace devoted entirely to trashy Filipino war flicks but we are. And obviously that's a royal "we". And obviously there's exceptions to the rule as I do write a line or two about other wild films once in a while as well, and of course there are other cool blogs like Paul's that deal with trashy war and action movies.
