V Coupland Comments: Well, it should have been titled, Off all possible covers. There is everything on such a small space! Naked woman running around with out-of proportion limbs, marine monsters and eyes, very big, desincarnated eyes. Just missing a cat man with a gun, to be really a must!

Hey everyone! I hope that tonight, like me, you have rented a great Halloween movie from Chinese Good Show Sir.

To my great surprise I’ve realised that this in fact isn’t the original and somehow a familiar man-tiger has made its way into the Hammer Horror classic The Devil Rides Out!

Have a good evening and please remember not to pick up any Clavicles of Solomon that you might find. Who knows when – or how – the great RX might be conjured!
