Blu-ray picture quality looks really good,
Features are fantastic, you get the full length Linnea Quigley's horror work-out video which features nudity, clips from her movies and lots of sexy work-outs in skimpy underwear, Linnea was a very flexible former playboy model who made her name as a scream queen by starring in many horror movies throughout the 80's. this work-out also has a full commentary. 1hr long.
There is a short archive making of and a great 27 years later documentary 20-min approx.
audio commentaries, trailers and more.
Reversible sleeve is nothing special its the same artwork from the front but without the certifications printed on it.
Region B, 75-mins feature, 1988.
Also comes with a 3 page booklet interviewing actor Gunnar Hansen.
What I didn't expect was a very entertaining and oddly charming comedy. The gore quotient, if you don't count splatters of fake blood with source unseen, is very low indeed. The sexual activity is mostly off-screen but there is, thankfully at least a reasonable amount of female nudity -I mean, come on, this is an exploitation movie for heaven's sake! There's a good interview with the schlockmeister writer/director/producer Fred Olen Ray, who comes over as honest and likeable, who has made dozens of cheapo movies and appears genuinely surprised that people actually really like this one. They do because, more by luck than design, it just works.
Other than that it's pretty shocking
Film is not as fun as I remember but still has its moments. Still love Michelle dancing and the acting is as bad as you can imagine. The gore is there but done like a troma release. Uncut really doesn't add much to what we had before. The main difference is the addition of chainsaw in the title. I'm still glad I bought it and the price was quite cheap for a blu ray.
My only gripe is that the otherwise splendid 20th Anniversary release (which also includes a terrific commentary track by Fred Olen Ray, by the way), unfortunately comes slightly cropped so that when Bauer does her nude scene certain important details at the bottom of the screen are lost. Boo!
Aside from this particular release, I've only seen an old VHS copy of the film, so I can't tell the prospective buyer what other DVD releases they might prefer to this one. Sorry.
Before I finish this review I'd like to throw in a quick rant. You see, when this film was originally released here in the UK on VHS it had to be cut (blood + breasts = big no no!) Moreover, the title of the film had to be changed aswell, so what we got over here was "Hollywood [picture of a chainsaw] Hookers". The word "chainsaw" had to be removed. It was dangerous, you see.Read more ›
