SUPER GOREY !!,
This review is from: Castle Freak [DVD]  [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)A really nice b-horror movie by Reanimator's and many other cult films director Stuart Gordon, starring Jeffrey Combs as in that very same debut film. Man no wonder I'd never seen this on the telly before. I'm a veteran gore/horror film connaisseur and thought nothing could surprise me anymore, but this puppy did ! Lots of revulsive gore/nudity/cruelty/explicit sex combined will make you send your children to bed early. Seriously, this film deserves an X rating at the very least (and I'm no moralist ! ). Cruel as few other films, the plot is solid and develops to a tragic and impressive grand finale in the style of the big classics (no I'm not telling you the argument) . Good if somewhat poor special effects more than made up for by the aforementioned characteristics. The dvd trasnfer, on the other side, deserves a separate commentary. 4:3, direct-from-vhs transfer with many a dropout and a picture that's veiled with a white mist, with no blacks to speak of, poor definition and little color, but all of this flaws can be corrected quite satisfactorily with the TV controls. The sound is 2.0 and OK if you just bother to switch you loudness control on. Highly recommendable !!!! 1995 - 93'.
