5.0 out of 5 stars Cult Classic get's five star treatment, 24 Sept. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death Ship [1980] [DVD] (DVD)
I first watched this as a young lad in the early 80's on it's initial VHS release. Even before the had certificates on Videos.

When you go to watch films like Death Ship you have to remember it is a cult classic which normally means that the film lacks budget (films like Blade Runner aside) and you have to appreciate a film for what it is more then Budget/Acting Skills/CGI Graphics etc.

The film is one of the last Nazi Exploitation films that came out by the dozen in the 60's/70's and 80's. In my opinion it is by far the best of them all as it has a storey most Nazi Exploitation films focused on Nudity and Torture.

The films look great on DVD. The extras are fantastic and the making of documentary is pretty funny.

All in all a five star DVD.

On the contrary many low budget horrors ('Vamp', 'Burning Bright', 'The Burrowers', 'Husk', 'The Ruins' and 'Scarecrows' can have sensational acting, and CGI when used sparingly and in all the right doses at its best can't be topped as part of a great package. My problem with merely presenting people as "dead alive" is exactly that, it's just diseased actors going round in soup-stained clothes biting each other for no reason. Perfect make-up/latex/animatronics/puppetry that came before the age of CGI was perfect for this, look at what they did with stuff like 'The Howling' and 'Gremlins'-pretty amazing. I'm hoping they'l be at least a little hint of the undead onscreen in this film.
