Violent Shit III: Infantry of Doom (1999) - 1999 Reel Gore Productions VHS

This one came in yesterday from a different seller. Now all I need is the tape of Violent Shit 2: Mother Hold My Hand and the Reel Gore quadrilogy will be complete. The aesthetics of this edition are the cleanest of the three. Very high quality cover in a black "puffy" clamshell with rounded edges as opposed to the "hard" clams of the other two. Best of the four features as well with David Zuzelo of the great Tomb It May Concern in agreement. Shock-O-Rama released VS3 on U.S. DVD as "Zombie Doom" paired with Zombie '90, but I'd wait for the Synapse set that's guaranteed to be better given the studio's badassery.

Also be sure to check out my articles at The Blood Sprayer for Italian Horror Week, The Self Defeating Nature of Late Era Italian Horror and Profondo VHS: Italian Horror Cover Art from Around the World along with everyone's work. We put a lot into it!

Yeah, love those "puffy" clamshells. Hard to get by though... you dare tread upon the staircase?
