From The Grindhouse Cinema Database

< The Cobra


  • Region 1
  • Studio: Wild East
  • A Peter Martell double feature together with a spaghetti western: Ringo The Lone Rider
  • Languages: English
  • Video: 2.35:1 Widescreen, NTSC
  • Extras (Cobra): Alternative English Credits; Picture Gallery; Deleted Scene
  • DVD COMMENTS: Wild East should be applauded for bringing this gem to DVD. Although the picture looks washed out and is visibly miles away from what DVD customers nowadays are used to in terms of restoration and remastering, it is nevertheless a decent wide screen version of the film and better than not being able to see it at all. The English language track sounds okay for the most part, non-native speakers might have problems with the less audible moments and there is one scene where it is out of sync or missing, but overall no reason for complaints here - considering the material. Overall another gap filled, even though the quality remains a bit below Wild East's own standards. A must-see for genre fans!
