3.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing!, 13 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: House of Seven Corpses [Blu-ray] [1974] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
I had this film on an old NTSC video tape which still played ok and the picture wasn't too bad, but I wanted to see it improved and in widescreen, so bought this blu-ray.

Daylight scenes aren't bad at all for such an obscure film, but the night ones, especially the opening, are really very grainy and look like poor VHS to me. The film also had awful day for night shooting with scenes jumping from darkness one minute to what looks like broad daylight as part of the same scene.
The print also has a lot of marks and blemishes on it, and is hardly the sort of thing you'd expect a blu-ray to look like.
A commentary track is interesting to listen to and a few odds and ends of extras make it ok for anyone casually interested in seeing this, but it is very tame and dull for the most part, with a few creepy scenes here and there to keep you watching.

Nothing special, and not the super prisitine release I was expecting for this price.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Slow Burner, 14 April 2008
Peter J. Dooley "Retrohorror" (London England) - See all my reviews
A group of low budget film makers attempt to finish making a horror movie
in an old mansion with a murderous past.
Old time horror legend John Carradine has a small but effective role
along with John Ireland who is clearly enjoying the role of a short tempered movie director.
The movie is slowly paced, but this helps the atmosphere, in fact it is
not until the hour mark that anything really happens. This helps to build up a palpable sense of dread, and there are some nice insights into the world of low budget film making. Recommended for fans of 60's/70's B movies, looking for something more accomplished.
