Slipstream is a 1988 post apocalyptic sci-fi adventure directed by Steven Lisberger (Tron). It boasts an impressive ensemble including Mark Hamill, Bob Peck, Bill Paxton, Ben Kingsley and F Murray Abraham...
And so I was a bit miffed to look at the Payless dvd release of the film.
Payless are a small distribution company who pick up film rights for a pittance and release them cheaply... i.e. $2 each. The films are generally of a low quality without any remastering and in most cases they're just video transfers.
It is also apparent that Payless aren't too keen on homework either because if they had done a bit of it they would have capitalised on the aforementioned cast of players as part of their design... instead the dvd features an image that I still can't put to any film I know of and credits actors including Jim Baxes, Tony Bill, Roger Ernest and Peter Maffia. Furthermore it showcases Steven Spielberg as the director.
Had Payless performed the simplest of Google searches they would have realised that Spielberg attempted to make a film called Slipstream in the late 60s but it never came to fruition. That film does not exist..... or does it? o_0
