Faces of Death III (1985) - Late '90s Gorgon Video Bootleg VHS

Upon picking this one up last weekend, I spotted something odd about the cassette. Just below the sticker label are the words "© Disney Enterprises, Inc." printed on the tape's plastic. Carefully peeling back the label revealed the cassette actually being a copy of Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996). Also notice how the graphics are slightly off center on all sides.

Watching it, the bootleggishness was confirmed as a VCR's "PLAY" indicator appears on the screen at the very start. After the feature the rest is recorded over with dead signal. Strange someone once went through the trouble considering how tame (or faked) this installment seems nowadays with the moving atrocities readily available with a stroll outside the confines of YouTube...

Yeah, I wouldn't have guessed years ago that one day we'd look back of FOD III and apply the "quaint" label, but in an age where real actual beheading are just clicks away, that's exactly what this stuff seems like now... you dare tread upon the staircase?
