A brief overview of the films: the double bill is about a central monstrous figure that wakes up every twenty odd years to feed on various parts of humans (generally while they're still alive...) depending on how they smell whilst in a state of fear. The abomination is a great creation with plenty of good ideas making him/it what he is, and this is manifested very well on screen, something that seemed destined for a franchise. The first film builds on the tension of the viewer not really knowing what's going on as two youngsters drive across country to visit their parents before they get on the wrong side of the 'Creeper' (as the monster is dubbed) while he's going about his sickening business. The second film focuses on a coachload of teens that breakdown nearby, providing a perfect opportunity for the Creeper to feast on his final night before hibernation.

They're both pretty enjoyable films, professionally shot (nicely lit with... proper camerawork!) and competent in building up tension. The second film worked for a me a lot better second time around, although could have been tightened up by shearing off a few minutes I think. There is some gore, which I feel is used sparingly enough to retain some impact, however I would suggest that the strength of these films fundamentally lies in a combination of the atmosphere developed in each along with witnessing the brilliant creation of the Creeper him/itself.

If you're looking at this product you're probably more interested in how they've turned out on disc. I've seen both of these on DVD (the first one a number of times) and am happy to say that they're both quite a step up in the audio/visual presentation departments on the US Blu-ray double set. Both are in full HD in their OARs (1.85:1 and 2.39:1 respectively) at 24 frames per second, as shot, and both are very pleasing to look at. The second film is especially strong in the colour department and there is plenty of detail throughout. Audio is supplied in DTS HD MA format, giving plenty of oomph on a surround kit - part 2 again really shines here, but part 1 is a good listen. Extras include an audio commentary with director Salva, an hour long documentary, a featurette, photo gallery trailer - all for part 1. Some have given this set 1 star because there are no extras for part 2 (although you do get a couple of foreign language audio dubs) - a shame but I'm marking this on what I have got rather than what I haven't.

The case is slimline and each film is housed on its own Blu-ray disc. Packaging is basic. Overall though you're getting two worthwhile modern horror films that hold up to repeat viewings - they're in excellent high quality presentations with a bunch of extras for a fair price really.

The movies are what you should know as a horror fan - nice and creepy, the usual par for the course for that genre. This story for me is above average though, and what a great ' baddie '.
No, unlike most others - I ONLY review the blu-ray as quick and simple as I can - the quality-of-show from the actual format. It basically ISN'T a good blu-ray, it is grainy and just doesn't show the type of thing that would shine in hi-def. It's simply not the right movie to show what blu-rays can be. It's a ' shelf saver ' though - having the two in one package. I have the 2 x DVD`s, but am upgrading / getting rid of them all to blu-ray, so this was a no brainer at the price. The blu-ray is better than the DVD, but only marginally - as I say, not a GREAT quality blu-ray, but good enough - and better ( sound and image ) than DVD. ( In my opinion ) ps - I play on a Panasonic flagship blu-ray player,( multiregional ) and large smart TV .

For the package, I would have given 4.5 stars if I could - menus etc are good - and as I say, price and shelf -saving are what appeals to me - but as there`s no halves, I just give it 4 ......5 stars should be reserved for the VERY best.
