Movie Reviews

Decent movie, awful DVD quality
Marylander4Life | Maryland, USA | 08/04/2004
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Please note: the 1-star rating I gave to this film is based on the actual DVD product, not the movie itself.

Released by Top Ten New Media Production Limited, this DVD is your typical cheapo bargain bin atrocity. Do NOT confuse this with the Anchor Bay release, which I haven't yet watched but is most definitely of better quality. And as I'm writing this review, AB is planning a special edition release to come out in the Fall (along with CHILDREN OF THE CORN).

The image quality of this DVD is God-awful; even worse than the VHS or TV prints I've seen. Everything looks foggy, blurry or scratchy, and to make matters even worse, it's PAN and SCANNED. There are 4 chapter stops and no extras. Face it, you KNOW a DVD is of poor quality when it spells "Start Movie" "Strat Movie" on the menu screen. Skip this and wait for the special edition release.

As for the film itself, it's OK. It's a really uneven film and doesn't feel anything like the original. It's not funny, not scary and, frankly, kind of boring. That said and done, I think it's better to grade each segment seperately.

"Old Chief Wood'n Head"
This is the middling segment of the 3. The first half is really boring, but once the Indian statue starts stalking, it picks up a bit.

"The Raft"
Easily the best of the stories. It's quite gory and nasty and is the only tale that comes close to capturing the essence of the EC comic books it's based on.

"The Hitchhiker"
Maybe it was because it was late at night but this segment almost put me to sleep. Lois Chiles was fun but it had no meat whatsoever, just her being terrorized over and over again.

All in all, skip this trashy release and go for the Anchor Bay DVD. It's a decent movie that I recommend only to those who like B horror flicks from the 80's."
