Blogger.com has had problems the past 24 hrs and the newest post on all blogs have disappeared. I'm re-posting my last post down below but Blogger says they'll restore all old posts so hopefully I can remove this again when that happens. Thanks to Brian about the hint of how to get the text back - cos NO I don't backup anything, argh!!.
Yesterday, someone left an anonymous message on my other blog! The message was a tip about an auction for a video tape in Taiwan! The anonymous poster said the VHS (pictured in the above) was directed by the same guy who made the cool Taiwanese horror movie WITCH WITH FLYING HEAD. His name is Chang Jen-Chieh (aka Cheung Yan-Git, Chang Rern-Jier, Chang Jen-Chieh, Chang Ren-Chiat, Chang Jen-Tsei, Zhang Ren-Jie).
However, my nameless friend didn't mention the title of the film and unfortunately I don't read Chinese. And even if I did that may not help much with the English title anyway. I did a Google translation and came up with "Read the Evil Dragon Shaohua Qing Epworth Serious", haha. I did a quick check of Chang Jen-Chieh's film list on Hong Kong Movie Data Base but none of the film titles look similar in any way except a couple that include "dragon(s)".
And if at least it was possible to place bids for the tape (there's 8 hours left and so far no bidders) but unfortunately it seems you can't do that when you live outside of Taiwan (which, obviously, I do). Do any of you know which film this is? The cover looks very cool but what kind of movie is this, is it a horror movie? I checked all 15 films listed on HKMDB and it seems Chang Jen-Chieh has directed films in many different genres. If any of you live in Taiwan please buy the tape and send me a dvd-r copy. Cheers. xD.
PS: And thanks heaps to Brian over at COOL ASS CINEMA blog for the kind mention. I appreciate that (a lot). Check Brian's post about obscure Asian flicks here. And I see I've got a handful of new followers (maybe due to Brian's post!) so welcome to you too. Kick yer feet up and feel at home! xD
