Movie Reviews

Great value package
O. Khan | Cambridge, England United Kingdom | 10/08/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A wonderful window on the world of Bollywood Horror - two movies are included here that makes this extra good value - and there's tons of informative and interesting extras. These movies look a little rough round the edges but they look far far better than can be expected - thanks to Mondo Macabro for having the dedication to release such obscure and fascinating movies"
Great peek into Indian horror genre - plus documentaries
P. Dull | Columbus, OH USA | 10/06/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Gotta hand it to Mondo Macabro video - They really know their audience! Although I'm no expert, I'm always interested in seeing how other cultures view various genres through film, and not only does MM give us two prime examples of Indian horror, they throw in a cool documentary on Indian films, plus other bonuses. Sure, the film quality isn't 100% perfect, but it doesn't detract from the fun of the films. If you're looking for "Terminator" style action, these probably aren't for you - but if you're even slightly interested in seeing how singing and dancing numbers are integrated into a Dracula story, by all means check it out here!"
Outstanding release of Bollywood horror masterpieces
Rajesh Balkrishnan | Columbus, OH USA | 10/15/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This release by Mondo Macabro shows that nobody can beat them when it comes to introducing weird and fantastic movies from all over the world to the DVD collectors. Both Purana Mandir and Bandh Darwaza have long been regarded as one of the finest examples of Indian horror cinema. This is an acquired taste. You may not like these movies if you are weaned on 90-minute Hollywood slashers. But if you are open to experimenting a bit, enjoy a level of camp, and musical interludes in between some genuinely creepy momemnts, you cannot go wrong with these purchases. The transfers of these 2 films are the best I have seen, given that they are very obscure and the original film elements were never stored properly.
The interviews and essays are fascinating. This is an ESSENTIAL purchase for lovers of horror cinema."
