This review is from: Fragment of Fear [DVD] [1970] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Movie has a teriffic plot. Until the end.A shame because with a good ending.It would have been a really great film.Love the killer cast.
Sadly the post and packaging via this company. May well prevent me from re-ordering from them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fragment of Fear, 27 Sep 2013

This review is from: Fragment of Fear [DVD] [1970] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Richard Sarafian's 1970 mystery thriller featuring husband & wife team David Hemmings (before he allowed his eyebrows to over run his face) & Gayle Hunnicut seems to draw it's inspiration from the Italian Giallo genre - the only things missing are Edwige Fenech, atrocious dubbing and excessive amounts of blood splatter. As other reviewers have noted, the ending is a damp squib but Hemmings delivers a fine performance in the role of a drug addicted writer, trying to solve a murder. Composer and producer Johnny Harris provides a superb funk driven score, excerpts of which can be found on his Warners release 'Movements'.

Transfer is excellent and audio crisp.

Product Warning (not found on disc but on official site)

"This product is made-on-demand by the manufacturer using DVD-R recordable media. Almost all DVD players can play DVD-Rs (except for some older models made before 2000) - please consult your owner's manual for formats compatible with your player. These DVD-Rs may not play on all computers or DVD player/recorders. To address this, the manufacturer recommends viewing this product on a DVD player that does not have recording capability."

No where on the sleeve or disc does it state which region it is compatible with. On some sites these discs are labelled Region 0 , on others Region 1. The disc will not play on my region free non-recordable DVD player (Toshiba) but will on both my region free blu ray (LG) and desktop PC (Windows 8).

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD please, 30 July 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fragment of Fear (1970) (VHS Tape)
The DVD is now available and certainly worthy of consideration. Pressented in anamorphic 1:1.85 widescreen the disc also contains the trailer and the cover artwork is rather nice too. I have to declare for fans of the book this adaptation is somewhat different and I think far more sinister, but I'll leave that for anyone like myself who has never seen his atmospheric gem to discover.Directed by film-maker RICHARD C SERAFIAN who made one of my all-time favourite road-movies: Vanishing Point.
