Re: Any reason for changing film titles for US market

Yeah they were just cashing in on the franchise, I don't think the film is 'bad' as such.... it just shouldn't be associated with the rest...IMO :)

Re: Video nasties!

Yeah there was no proof they had seen it and like you say it gave them something silly to blame, making it exchange hands for silly money and hypeing it up to hell!

Re: VHS tapes!

We had a Choices video shot near us and as mentioned above they would get 10-15 copies of a new release and sell them off a month or two later when the rentals dropped and they would probably keep about 2 copies for rental.

Re: Any reason for changing film titles for US market

One more thought................ Halloween 3!!!!! that damn film should NOT have been called Halloween 3!!!.... Haloween 4 should have been Halloween 3 and Halloween 3 should have been called something Like 'Halloween the season of the Witch' either that or they should have just burnt the negatives!!
