Geir is right that the only place to get Kurutta these days--if you  
are not renting a film print--is through bootleg copies. I do hope an  
official DVD comes out next year, but my colleague in Japan recently  
said that old Japanese movies are just not selling on DVD and thus  
the company in question may balk at doing Page of Madness. So  
everyone should remember: the best way to get more good old movies  
out on DVD is to buy the ones that are out (and not use questionable  
services like bittorrent and SuperHappyFun). I strongly recommend the  
films Kinokuniya has put out.

By the way, my book on A Page of Madness should be coming out the  
second week of January. It's copyrighted 2008, but the printing  
presses mostly sleep during the Xmas break, so I have to wait a bit.
