Phenomenal And The Treasure Of Tutankamen... Deodato's first official director credit. I've been keen to see this comic-book caper since 1999, when I first laid eyes on it in FAB Press' Savage Cinema book. Looks like a lot of fun from the pictures but it gets a decidedly mixed write-up. Anyone here seen it? I'm thinking that it's almost worth picking up the shitty Grindhouse Experience Volume 2 DVD just to see it.

I've got a big cardboard box U.S tape of this, Merli has a small part but when i watched it (many moons ago) i didn't notice him.

i haven´t heard of anyone else but me who have liked this film... i think it´s a nice one, like a easy listening adventure, very laid back and unexciting, but relaxing, a mood film! the explosive coverart doesn´t have much to do with the film. not much action here.

I've only ever seen it via the f/s Japanese vhs.
Did it ever get a European PAL tape release?

Thanks.
I might get myself a copy of that vhs someday and see how it compares to the English version.

I don't mind this one, it's enjoyable enough, nothing much more.  The protagonist is deathly dull and his superhero costume is essentially having a black sock pulled over his face, but Gordon Mitchell and John Karlsen are fun.  I've never spotted Merli either (or special guest star Rex Harrison, who Deodata apparently filmed walking by while shooting in Paris!)

I have a Greek VHS of it, or I did, at any rate - sold it a few months back I think...

I believe this one is on the 'Grindhouse Experience Vol. 2' box set, with a fairly atrocious transfer, if I recall correctly?

According to Deodato he didn't turn up for the shoot because he'd been arrested,got locked up and then on his release a year later was found to be innocent of all the charges!Something about a case of mistaken identity which he talks about on the CONVOY BUSTERS dvd.

That'll explain why then. No wonder I couldn't spot him  :-\
