Movie Reviews

Decent set, but devoid of extras
N. Durham | Philadelphia, PA | 02/07/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Collecting three films from horror maestro Wes Craven's Universal deal, this Wes Craven collection features Shocker, The People Under the Stairs, and The Serpent & The Rainbow. Shocker is a fun and over the top romp featuring The X-Files' Mitch Pileggi as a death row inmate whom acquires the ability to jump from person to person inhabiting their body. The People Under the Stairs finds Craven trying to rekindle a bit of the rawness of his earlier more barbaric films Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes with a story involving two kids trapped in a house with a cannibalistic couple and an even creepier secret. The Serpent & The Rainbow finds Craven adapting the best selling book and tells the story of a researcher (Bill Pullman) looking to find the secrets of voodoo and ending up way, way over his head. The only extras to be found are for Shocker which features a trailer and a few production notes, other than that there is nothing. You'd figure for a box set there would be some exclusive extras thrown in or maybe even a commentary or two, but alas, there is nothing. All in all, The Wes Craven Collection is worth buying if your a hardcore Craven fan and don't already own all three films, but otherwise this is rental material."
