5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent region free blu-ray!, 2 Sept. 2012

This review is from: Boogens [Blu-ray] [1981] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
Two young college graduates take a job with a crew re-opening an old abandoned silver mine in the snowy wilderness of Colorado. Inadvertently they release strange creatures trapped in the mine since a previous cave-in, and fairly soon the beasties are using the newly opened tunnels to hunt their prey!

The Boogens has been unavailable on home video for a long time. A shame really as unlike a lot of horrors shot in the same era it does not rely on gory deaths to sell its shocks, rather a slow build up of tension and atmosphere and characters we can grow to like before it pulls out all the stops and the deaths begin to pile up. Tragically fans have had to make do with dubious quality bootlegs over the years, so seeing the film on blu-ray comes as something of a revelation.

Horror fan's should seek this film out regardless, its a great slice of horror film-making and deserves to be seen by as many genre fans as possible. It helps that the blu-ray presents the film superbly with a fantastic, natural looking hi-def transfer that brings out all the detail and avoids any of the over-mastering seen on some releases these days. The cover art is great and it comes in a nifty little slipcase and olive films have even chucked in an interesting commentary track. (certainly more than we got for tales that witness madness)

Overall I would reccomend picking this up, it'll play on uk machines with no problems, my ps3 runs it fine, its a great little film that needs to be seen.
