IT WILL TAKE YOU FURTHER THAN FEAR.
Of all the many slice-and-dice films that emerged in the early 80s, few remain as gruesomely effective as The Burning the notorious video nasty now finally unleashed on Blu-ray!
When an ill-advised prank misfires, summer camp caretaker Cropsy is committed to hospital with hideous burns. Released after five years, hospital officials warn him not to blame the young campers who caused his disfigurement. But no sooner is Cropsy back on the streets than he s headed back to camp with a rusty pair of shears in hand, determined to exact his bloody revenge.
With standout gore effects courtesy of FX legend Tom Savini, The Burning proved too shocking for UK censors upon its original video release. Now, fully uncut and in High Definition, The Burning is ready to reclaim its place as the ultimate summer camp nightmare.

Now Arrow have done a great job with the Blu-ray transfer, it gets a 4/5 from me, even the dark scenes look very good, but i have to say the Steelbook is just awesome. Another stunning release from Arrow..
When an ill-advised prank misfires, summer camp caretaker Cropsy (Lou David) is committed to hospital with hideous burns, covering his body. Five years later and he's back on the streets and following an aborted bit of how's yer father with a unlucky lady of the night, 'ol crispy-fry is gunning for a piece of payback and the only way his murderous thirst can be quenched is to return to that very same summer camp and take a whole heap of revenge on a group of unsuspecting camp counsellors... To say this one delivers the gooey goods is an understatement - its like the perfect slasher template and for me, perfects on the first few 'Friday the 13th' flicks (which sadly it got lost in the glut of back in the day) with the right balance of gore, character development and tightened editing. Tom ('Day of the Dead', 'Friday the 13th') Savini's topnotch splatter effects really elevate this one into the major leagues and along with director Maylam's razor sharp eye - this one stands as the go to movie for aspiring slasher rip off merchants... Why its not held in higher horror regard baffles me as its got a fun cast, a great horror villain and a real deal set of pop out gore moments - but I guess it being so close to 'ol Jason back in the day set it back a few notches... shame, as its a fun gore filled ride.
Arrow Video's UK Blu-Ray steel book release is a very wonderful thing. With a beautifully designed cover presented in a funky orange steel case, the packaging is the business. Throw in a number of extra features such as a great audio commentary with Maylam and critic Alan Jones, a look at the make-up effects with Tom Savini, interview with composer Rick Wakeman and a whole heap of other bits 'n bobs, 'ol Cropsy has never been treated so well! The movie itself is presented in a cracking high def Blu-Ray transfer with vibrant audio that pops - ensuring those pesky shears sound go so snappy when they go about their business... All in all, this is a great release worthy of every penny. Recommended to new time horror fans looking to find out what all that early 80s fuss was about and for old timers like me who wanna forget the real world for awhile and recall a time when found footage only existed in hard to get hold of cannibal movies. Add to basket.
A lot of fans moaned that Arrow were rehashing the stuff Scream Factory were putting out which is true but did they release The Burning in a glorious steelbook? They did not so this was most welcomed by the fans and the gorgeous new artwork which I think is better than the original, something which never happens is better than ever.
The transfer and extras were a great compliment to the set that is now deleted and rare meaning you have to pay extra to own this baby, but its worth every penny, well under £50 anyway. Another great release by Arrow, always pushing themselves to top the last release.
I've got two vipco dvd versions of this film (one uncut & the other a cut version)
Which I'd keep as a souvenir because vipco ceased in 2007.
This dvd sadly is NOT in 16x9 widescreen but in the old defunct 4x3 Letterbox (which is rubbish) and not what's stated on it's sleeve.
Sadly my dvd turned out to be faulty so I was unable to watch it.
I've contacted the seller for a refund.😓
The picture quality's outstanding, widescreen 1.85:1 & fills
all the screen on a modern T.V. A prank goes 'pear shaped'
& the consequences are dire, the kids (teens) at the summer
camp are bang in trouble. There's a reason horror addicts
love this movie, basically it delivers the goods & Savini's fx
are the icing on the cake. As far as i know it's uncut, did
some checking and this MGM release is meant to be complete.
A big thanks for the reviewers who have also stated this.
Extras: commentary, blood 'n' fire memories. Run time: 1hr 31min 22 sec.
