    Oh. My. GOD! Do you know how hard it has been to find this movie? Not available for streaming. No VHS or DVD on Amazon, Ebay, or anywhere else. Not on YouTube (except in Spanish) or DailyMotion (could only find a clip of the first 14 minutes). No tor-rent-able copies. ONLY HERE THANK YOU!!! 😍

      Thank you! And thank you for the coffees (I think it was you, right? xD) really appreciate the support, glad I could be of help so that you could finally find this movie, it is pretty rare I think it’s not been released on VHS in the U.S. which is why it’s so hard to find, the video of this copy was taken from the Spanish VHS with synched audio from a lower quality TVrip of the film in English, only thanks to the internet is that things like this are possible to be made and shared 🙂 Thanks again!
