After some digging around on different release information for Eye for an Eye / Taste of the Savage / Vengeance / El sabor de la venganza, I have found and placed an order for this DVD:
Took quite a big of searching to find out about this DVD. In usual fashion, there is barely any info about it out there. It was released by California publisher Laguna Films in 2006. Laguna also release a VHS in 2000, which I almost purchased prior to finding this DVD:
I’m assuming the DVD is probably the same video as the VHS… DVD is Spanish audio only and lists a runtime of 99 min. I don’t think that time is accurate though.
Mexico based company Videomax also released a DVD in 2005, but I cannot find that one anywhere and even less information about it. But this DVD lists runtime of 84 min.
The Taste of the Savage VHS runs at 81min, so maybe will be a little extra footage on the DVD.
No one is selling the Laguna DVD on ebay but when searching for the disc, there is one product review and the user had this to say:
Movie cover sucks big time, its like a deceiving practice by Laguna film or they just hired a retarded publisher to create such cover, DVDs full of advertisement too and role given to Mario Almada and Rogelio Guerra in this movie was poor!
I agree about the terrible cover, not only is it an awful design, it doesn’t even list Mariscal or Cameron Mitchell. All the people selling the DVD provide no information about the film, not even the year it was made or anything. It would have been really hard to find if I hadn’t looked through the worldcat.org website for different releases.
Also this ebayer says something about the “DVDs full of advertisement” and I’m not sure if he’s referring to stuff at the beginning, or if this is maybe a TV recording and they didn’t remove the commercials… This would explain the 99min runtime if so.
Anyway, will soon see and hopefully another upgrade on the way - without even having to get that French tape!
Here’s another VHS I found while looking. This one is from Spain and has a pretty cool cover, unfortunately cannot find any larger images:
