Finding a movie that can't be found

Post Finding a movie that can't be found
Hey all,

I've asked about this in other forums and had little luck.

I am looking for a VHS (dubbed, I don't care) of the movie "Retreads" from 1988.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0389321/

I really want to get a copy of this as a gift for my father in law, as it was filmed in my wife's hometown and her dad plays "the bartender".

Is there any way to get ahold of an obscure movie like this???

Hey,
I just tried a few sites that I've found success with before, and no luck. Are you sure that it was released? If so, you're best bet on this one may just be the age old used movie stores, yard sales, etc. I couldn't find anything online. Good luck!

If I were you, I would try contacting the production company/distributor and find out if it was ever released on home video. If it was, then you have a place to start.

I tried my online sources and - nothing

IMDB does not even show a release

and a 2.2 score from 20 years ago....

I agree with Roastbeef-ajus

The bad news is that the production company on IMDB is Brazilian!
This may be very tough
