Original THORN EMI/HBO VHS Video Release in white clamshell case.
I know I just did a review on this, which you can find here, but it's such a badass cover and I'm just happy that I was able to get my hands on a copy of the original. Easily one of my absolute favorite thrillers of all time and one of my favorite Rutger Hauer performances ever. 


  1. This cover looks way creepier than the one with Hauer and the shotgun...would someone please shoot me for selling my collection..i cant live with that,lol....

  2. Hey buddy, I've been there. Believe me. I did the same exact thing. lol. I'm basically starting from scratch all over again. lol. That can be fun too!

  3. it sure is....the good part is that most of the stuff is cheaper than it ever was...a new VHS was 40 german marks and a uncut tape would cost you 60 easy...so its possible to get the collection growing much faster...

  4. We got a copy very similar to this one though it says HBO home video, there is a lightening bolt on the cover and the type on the back of the cover is slanted instead of straight across..other than that they are identical though it makes no mention of Thorn EMI. Which do you think came out first?

    1. Hhmm, is your copy also in clamshell form? Or is it a cardboard slipcase?
