Desperate car ride Bava-style 2 Nov. 2013
By orvuus - Published on
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
First of all, Kino's recent run of Bava on blu ray has been a dream come true for me. I resisted watching this until I got this blu ray -- and I'm glad I did. Apparently there are two different versions of this film, as once again Bava had just about finished the movie when they pulled out the rug from under him. This blu ray version has flawless picture and sound, and the story will take hold of you from the start and never let go. If this had been released at the time it was made, it would have been considered a classic, but now that it is out, it is still lingering in obscurity. A fine film, and the final film with Bava firmly in the director's chair. Kudos to Kino for this quality release. (Now please somebody release Blood and Black Lace, Kill Baby Kill, and Planet of the Vampires on blu ray!).
A Stunning Departure 23 Feb. 2014
By V. Risoli - Published on
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
"Kidnapped" is Lamberto Bava's re-titled completion of his famous father's 1974 film "Rabid Dogs" which is such a departure for Mario Bava, if the famed director had lived longer, I think this film would have brought him even more recognition. Lamberto had already coaxed the director out of early retirement and the result was Mario Bava winning an award for his screenplay for the 1977 final film "Shock," but I think the more aptly re-titled "Kidnapped" definitely threw me off with its unexpected brilliance. I really do not want to give any spoilers here by talking about the plot, but it is stunning, well acted, and I don't think Lamberto had to do very much to it to finish the effort, which credit should lavished on his father, who began so many trends in the horror film business by creating the blueprints for the first giallo ("Blood and Black Lace") and the first slasher movie ("A Bay of Blood") and was always on the edge of increasing his genius. Kino's Blu-ray remastered edition is excellent, however, the only extras are other Bava trailers. Color.

It doesn't features the original 1972 version and the 1972 original dubbing...

Hijacked 18 Mar. 2014
By Veritas Veritatis - Published on
Format: DVD
Q: Why do you need "Kidnapped" when you have "Rabid Dogs"?
A: You don't.

If someone was to suggest that a Rembrandt painting
be touched up here and there, that individual would
be vilified.
I guess film art has been compromised
by an opinion that it is only mindless entertainment
and therefore subject to mutilation.
nb: I like mindless entertainment :-)

If Mario Bava is the great genius of cinema that he is nearly
universally claimed to be, and he is, why alter his work?
Both movies are on this DVD, so you don't need to decide
which one you want before making a decision to get a copy.
That is as it should be in the world of DVD's and Anchor Bay
does it right, as usual.

*** contains spoilers***
"Rabid Dogs" is a great and relentless action movie,
from start to finish.
Very cynical.
One of the ancestors of "Reservoir Dogs" of more recent fame.
If you want happy endings and answers to the meaning of life,
look elsewhere.
"The Last House On The Left" (original)
is a philosophical meditation compared to "Rabid Dogs".

The cover insert states that "Rabid Dogs" has been given
a newly created opening credits sequence.
It is great, but what was the original one?
This movie fan wants to see it.
The music for "Rabid Dogs" is amazing. Just right.
Tense, edgy rock music with distorted "fuzz" guitar
that starts at the opening credits and underlies the movie's action.
"Kidnapped" uses generic atmospheric symphonic music
appropriate for a ladies tea party. WTF?!

Bunch of bad guys rob a payroll and try to get away
with the aid of a hostage or two or three
to enjoy their new status as men of means.
Things don't go exactly as planned.

If you like cynical exploitation grindhouse style cinema,
then you will like this movie.
Made by a master film-maker of the caliber that rarely
make films of this type.
If you are a fan of Quentin Tarantino, you will like this movie.
If you are one of those people or think that you might be,
check it out.
If you are a Mario Bava fan, check it out,
you will not be disappointed.
