I had Mantrap on VHS a long time ago and remembered it as my first introduction to ABC. It was by chance I came across this website Music Video Resource and discovered it available on DVD. It was a great delight seeing this short film again and I was impressed with the quality and sound level. The bonus ‘bands reunited’ program was fun to watch as well. All the commercials were cleanly edited out of the “Band Reunited” program Thank you MusicVideoResource!
