This is Strange: Revenge from Planet Ape

I stumbled on this on a random morning of surfing on the net. A review of Tombs of the Blind Dead mentioned an alternate opening/recut version that tied it to the Planet of the Apes movies. The alternate opening sequence was on the 2005 DVD release of Tombs of the Blind Dead. I don't know if it's real or a clever fake, but imagine the RPG possibilities...

Is that not awesome?

I can assure you that "Revenge From Planet Ape" was the real deal. I saw it at the (long-defunct) Market Place Cinemas in Anderson, SC. It was the only time I ever went to one of the "Planet Of The Apes" movies at a theater... or, at least, the only time I went to a theater assuming that I was going to see an "Apes" movie. I was 8 or 9 (this was circa 1976-7), and not amused at the deception.
