    Can anyone help me?

    I'm trying to get a list of all of the original releases on VHS by Redemption Films during the 1990's (both titles and catalogue numbers).

    Thanks.

    I worked there from the early 90s. I still have most of the tapes here. When I originally bulit their website I listed every release, but now everything is DVD all the old info has been removed.

    Why would you like this information?

    Hi Marc

    I am trying to complete my collection of all the early vhs releases.

    I've been working on it for a while but still have a long way to go, but haven't got anything to check my progress against.

    I think apart from being great movies (well, most of them), the releases are a good example of great sleeve designs and marketing.

    There's also the nostalgia factor!

    In most cases it was due to lack of suitable masters.

    Some interesting titles there. Is that Franco's 'Exorcism'?

    Yes, it is. We were a pioneering label back then - nobody else was releasing these movies.

    I didn't know you released Stagefright, I thought the Avatar release was the only UK version at the time. Was it uncut?

    Re: Redemption Films Original VHS Releases

    Yes, it was uncut. The 90s were however a difficult time for releasing horror movies on video, as the BBFC were much stricter back then, and many of th above Redemption titles suffered cuts.

    We were so annoyed with this that we issued a whole Redemption Benelux series in Holland - and all were uncut. Other releases followed in Australia.

    Re: Redemption Films Original VHS Releases

    Marc, if pej wants to collect all the Redemption titles it might be worth mentioning some of the variants like Vampyros Lesbos, which had two different Redemption releases as 066 and 066A (which had a colour cover). Salome/The Forbidden had a 'limited' release of 3000 with a silver sleeve. Did they manage to sell 3000 copies of that?

    Re: Redemption Films Original VHS Releases

    It all seems like an age away all that stuff - I can't think of too many other alternative releases to be honest.

    I have spare copies of lots of the Redemption title here, if anybody is interested then PM me.

    I once picked up timecoded copies of Redemption's Baron Blood and Bay Of Blood from a now defunct secondhand market stall. The former i still have whereas the latter i dispensed with some time ago. I recall The Dark Side done an issue devoted to Redemption titles many moons ago and this may be worth tracking down if you're into the above label.:)

    I think I had a catalogue of the various label releases when I sent off my card from my Redemption VCD.

    My husband used to have about 60 of the Redemption tapes but most have gone on ebay now. The looked really cool but just took up too much space.
