2.0 out of 5 stars A valid reason this was hard to locate, 28 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Castle of the Living Dead [DVD] (DVD)
As an aficionado of Gothic European/Italian cinema, this came as a complete shock. Its a patience testing potboiler with a bored performance from Christopher Lee and next to nothing in the way of atmosphere nor story. The only element of interest is the lovely cover artwork by Graham Humphreys.
I'm basing my comments on the French bilingual Artus 2011 dvd release, which I assume this UK edition is utilising the same print. PQ wise it looks great, correctly framed 1:66:1 16x9 w/s and the mono sound was problem free.

I hope someone manages to restore and release the far far superior 5 Graves For A Medium aka Terror Creatures From The Grave aka Cemetery of the Living Dead with Barbara Steele.

Hope this was of help to potential buyers.

Seeing as you mentioned the Artus release, does it force the French subtitles on the English audio track?

In reply to an earlier post on 1 Feb 2012 03:05:34 GMT
No the Artus subtitles are optional, not enforced.

This ISN'T the same print as the french Artus disc, believe it or not. The Odeon disc is four minutes shorter, with marginally inferior picture quality (both are in the PAL format.) The only 'advantage' of the Odeon disc is Graham Humphreys superb cover art.

Thanks for the info, another reason to give this a miss.

Four mins sounds a bit absurd? I haven't seen the Artus disc but am familiar with the movie and the Odeon disc is the same as I remember.

This only suggests that you're familiar with a cut version, Rich - probably the same edit that was offered to Odeon for release. The Artus disc is definitely four minutes longer. I've also seen a bootleg (in PAL format) that runs four minutes longer than the Odeon print.

I second your motion for a remastered print of the "Terror Creatures From The Grave" - why hasn't anyone, save for a few awful budget companies, released this classic yet?!?! It is extremely stylish, creepy and strs Barbara Steele!!! C'mon!!
