Title: The Iron Master / La guerra del ferro - Ironmaster (Umberto Lenzi, 1983)
Post by: Jonny on 09 Mar 2008 - 10:44
Bought the UK pre-cert VHS on Medusa a few months ago and haven't got around to watching it yet.

Fabulous cover art though...

I'm going to get the VHS deck out tomorrow and give it a watch. Anyone seen this one and any thoughts on it?

Yep, yellow spine and top label with the Medusa hologram sticker on the left hand side window on the top of the cassette.

Is this the release you have Magnus? On the Flamingo label? What's the quality like and aspect ratio?

Eastman is superb in this but the main character isn't that good.

If you see the pig getting stuck in your tape i think it should be complete Jonny, i think the later issues without the spine sticker had this bit missing.

I supplied spannick with English audio for THE IRONMASTER but he said it was from a cut print and he couldn't use it. Maybe they've managed to edit it together somehow?

Did you watch it yet Jonny?

no English on any of the Titles in that Set. the IRON MASTER was unusable due to being cut by 6 mins and the Rest... THOR could not be found, and ATOR 1 & 2 are the German Cut Versions (cut for pacing)

I have an old U.S. VHS copy of this.  not sure if it's cut, or the length.  I'll have to dig it out and see what it says... 
I remember the De Angelis Brothers' soundtrack being pretty good, especially the theme song.  The lead 'hero' really sucks, but Eastman is in top form as the evil Vuud and Pamela Prati is great to look at in this one.

I also have an English language track since I was going to make a fandub from the Italian DVD. I'll check the length but I guess it's too late anyway.

I finally dug this one up while unpacking at my new place.  the sleeve says 98 mins - how does this compare to the Italian or German DVDs? 
When I get the technology, maybe I'll attempt a fandub if Magnus doesn't beat me to it!

I wonder if they're all using the same print. But different (if any) extras.
