Title: Abuso di potere / Shadows Unseen (Camillo Bazzoni, 1972)
Post by: Jonny on 29 Nov 2008 - 10:14
Some grabs from the H&W DVD, no English options or extra features - any info on an English VHS release of this one?

I have a Greek VHS of this one which is English speaking. Print looks nice and is letterboxed as well. Probably the same print as the one used for the Scandinavian releases.

The version I have has Dutch subtitles and looks pretty OK. Not a bad film this. It's one of those crime movies that mixes in a few giallo elements and is somewhat downbeat.

Yes mate, the screen grabs I posted in this thread are from the Italian Hobby & work DVD. Not the best of quality for a DVD release though.

I have a dub of that tape above. Good movie. The final scene where he speaks to his kid and uses the phone afterward is a real tear-jerker, in my opinion. My only gripe is Frederick Stafford's voice (actor). "Peeepeeng tahm" ???

I gather the same sleeve was used for the four territories on the back as mine is Swedish but looks the same, has a silver sticker on the corner of the tape with an S on it, does the Danish version have a D I wonder?
