5.0 out of 5 stars THE GHOST OF FRIDAY NIGHT AS A KID IN THE '80's, 11 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Asylum [DVD] [1972] (DVD)
I absolutely love this film, from the first glimpse of the groovy orange MGB GT to the discovery of which character is the deranged Dr. Starr, it's a corker and has a magnificent soundtrack. The cast too are fabulous and you will instantly recognise some, if not all of the protagonists on display here.
I have rated the movie as a 5, that score is for the movie, but for the picture quality the disc scores 1. I have had a TV recording of this movie for many years, from a BBC transmission mid-nineties, and the picture on it is crisp and clear, but the image quality on this release is more akin to an NTSC 525-Line domestic recording, the picture looks washed out and grainy which absolutely destroys the atmosphere of the film. As we all know the majority of the charm films like this have is due to the lighting, the design and the colours, all subtlety is lost here though in a blurred mess.
To sum up then, this film is fantastic but only buy if you can't wait to see it, if you can wait then wait til they transfer a good quality print to DVD and buy that.
