Movie Reviews

GORGEOUS print -- just amazing!
Stuart Gardner | Interzone, Alphaville | 07/25/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You don't need to be told about this film, you just want to know if this is the DVD to buy.
YES, it is. The quality of this print is astounding. It's beautiful, sharp and clear, and even the TRAILER for the film (included on the disc) is in good shape.
Under ordinary circumstances I'd be happy with the quality of this print and trailer (and even with the quality of the transfer), but considering what a cheap little public domain title SCARED TO DEATH is, and the fact that the quality of this DVD label's products varies wildly, I am stunned. I think you will be, too."
Horror Comedy
Charles J. Rector | Woodstock, IL United States | 02/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Scared to Death is a rare example of a horror parody that works both as horror and comedy. Usually such flicks work as comedies, but utterly fail in the horror department. Scared to Death does a great job of establishing a creepy, moody atmosphere.

Scared to Death features strong performances, most notably from Bela Lugosi, George Zucco and Nat Pendleton. The movie itself is quite lovely to look at. The film was shot in "natural color" which is quite similar to two strip Technicolor such as that used in the 1933 horror classic Mystery of the Wax Museum.

Scared to Death's script is quite strong and features such great lines as "Do not treat Igor with only offends him!" In another scene, Nat Pendleton's character tells a lady that he wishes that she would drop dead so he would have a murder to investigate.

Scared to Death works both as horror and comedy and as such is warmly recommended.

Bela in Living Color

(2 out of 5 stars)

""Scared to Death" (1947) is a bizarre mixture of horror, mystery and comedy. The low-budget production remains notable for being the only color film to star Bela Lugosi (who wears his Dracula cape in yet another red herring role). Another unique distinction is the jarring flashback structure - with narration provided by a dead woman in the city morgue! The B-movie cast includes George Zucco, Molly Lamont, Angelo Rossitto and the archaic comic relief of Nat Pendleton. Running 67 minutes, "Scared to Death" benefits from Bela's striking Cinecolor presence and its decidedly weird atmosphere. Not a particularly good film, but a watchable curio."
