Mastorakis Mania !

Posted by phil blankenship, March 26, 2007 02:26am | Post a Comment
Following my recent Nico Mastorakis fascination, I've done a great service & compiled a list of Mastorakis titles available on dvd in the US. There are multiple editions/pressings of most. In general, the '2003' editions on Omega Entertainment are the preferable releases.

Mastorakis Collection on DVD:

Blind Date
Bloodstone (writer/producer)
.Com For Murder
Glitch!
Grandma's House (producer)
In The Cold Of The Night
Hired To Kill
Island Of Death
The Naked Truth
Nightmare At Noon
Ninja Academy
Skyhigh - A Summer On Fire
The Time Traveller
The Wind
The Zero Boys

I also stumbled across a short Mastorakis interview about The Zero Boys!

BONUS Mastorakis film trailer for Nightmare At Noon, another one starring Wings (Vice Squad, Deadly Force) Hauser!

The Wind - There's Something Deadly In the Air

Since it is a bit hard to see clearly on the scans, I've blown up the two most important parts of the box (you're welcome!).

 

Film Tagline:

Closing line on the back:

The fact that the D in Wind is made from the killer's hand scythe certainly makes this one stand out, too.

About the quality of the film, I don't yet have much to say. I've been too obsessed with staring at the box to actually watch the flick. I do know, however, that it HAS to be a killer:

1. Wings (VICE SQUAD!) Hauser plays the mysterious caretaker Phil!
2. This was shot immediately before Meg Foster played Evil-Lyn in the Masters of the Universe live-action motion picture.
3. It was directed by Nico Mastorakis, ALWAYS a sign of '80s quality (be sure to check out Zero Boys if you haven't already).
4. It was released on Lightning Video !
