A Dangerous Summer didn't quite make waves in its home country of Australia, but Americans really took to the movie under the name Flash Fire.
Hollywood heavyweights JAMES MASON and TOM SKERITT star in this gripping Ozploitation gem about Howard Anderson, an American architect, battling a deranged arsonist to save his million-dollar resort in the picturesque Blue Mountains. As temperatures soar and bushland is decimated, Anderson races to save his property – and also his daughter’s life – from a madman whose crime has escalated from arson to murder. Packed with action, intrigue and one Ozploitation cinema’s most iconic set-pieces (WENDY HUGHES dragged underwater by an unseen assailant at Bondi beach) A DANGEROUS SUMMER is a homegrown thriller that is as fast and explosive as a raging runaway bushfire!

No, we only ship inside the US
Most orders for in-stock items take less than 24 hours to ship (may take longer if you place an order over the weekend). Pre-orders are shipped as soon as the product arrives. International pre-orders may not come in before the street date. This is especially true with Australian pre-orders.
We only use USPS for all shipments. If there is an issue after your order ships you will need to contact your local post office.
All items that come with a slipcover will say so in the product page.
Pre-orders will not say WITH SLIPCOVER until the product comes in.
Slipcovers are not guaranteed to be in mint condition.
If you can order it, it's either in stock or a pre-order. If an item is out of stock you will not be able to add it to your cart. It's rare but our inventory may not be correct. So in some cases an item may have to be shipped separately.
We do not sell bootlegs. All product arrives from the distributor or is directly from the filmmakers. All items are new and sealed. Some indie titles or signed editions may not have shrinkwrap.
If we still haven't answered your question, you can contact us below and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
