MIDNIGHT EXPRESS VS FANTASTICS (After multiple requests, I've finally decided to remaster the Midnight Express vs Fantastics compilation. Lots more footage, in much higher quality, is now available so this version is longer and better. Quality is very high for almost everything with lots of it in 1080p perfect quality.)
