Back in 2009 when Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds came out, a crack Scarecrow Video team compiled "Before They Were Basterds" --a list of cinematic references and homages in the movie. For Tarantino's latest film, they've reunited for CHAIN LINKS, a special rental section full of films either referenced in or an influence on Django Unchained--spaghetti westerns, blaxplotation, slient films, and more.


These are DVDs except when noted:

BLU = Also on Blu-ray

PAL CODE 2 or CODE 3 = An import DVD; ask us if you need assistance playing PAL or region coded discs

VHS = Only on glorious VHS
