My favorite bootleg movie I've encountered was The Ring. For a long time it hadn't been released with English subtitles in any country, so you had to get a Malaysian VCD edition that was bootlegged from the Hong Kong edition, so the Japanese had been translated into simplified Chinese subtitles, and then those had been translated into English by Malaysians. That's still the only version of The Ring I've seen, come to think of it.
Must have been one hell of a confusing film experience.
Spoil away, now I'm curious. The original ended with Boring Hero Kid and his dumb girlfriend living as oogles.
It stopped pretty much after Kawada destroyed Kiriyama's head. And it cuts forward to Kawada, Shuya and Noriko sailing off into the sunset. The whole part about Noriko being Kitano's daughter is missing, as well as Kawada dying on the boat. It was weird watching it later with that stuff back in.
Chumbucket, I think I followed it pretty well, there's not much dialogue in it anyhow.
Also, I think of all the movies to watch on a grainy, multi-generation bootleg, Ring is up there with the best you could ask for.
I hear if you watch the bootleg, then seven days later, a little Filipino kid pops out of your TV and gives you a wedgie.
Oh god. I opened this to watch on youtube when I was going to sleep. Thanks to that new next video autoplay thing I heard Ashen's voice for 7 hours in my dreams. He seemed like a cool guy except at one point where he started hitting me for no reason, but he was drunk.
OZ you're talking about Ringu I take it? I would also recommend the American remake. I haven't seen it since when it first came out, and I think every horror movie's sort of copied from it, but it was pretty badass when it first came out, and after I saw the Japanese one, I decided I liked the American one more. Gore Verbinsky is actually a pretty good director, but definitely sold his soul to Mickey Mouse a long time ago.

Fan made fake bootleg - I'll try to wrap my head around that.

I wish more DVDs had Paul Bettany as a special feature.

My prize bootleg is a Vietnamese copy of "The Exorcist" with Max Von Sydow's face replaced with Pinhead from Hellraiser.
