Blu Ray Nesting from BLUE UNDERGROUND
on 26 July 2011
I remember this low budget horror flick on VHS from Vipco with the very same stylish cover artwork which appears here on this brand new Blue Underground region free blu ray release, which includes several deleted scenes and various trailers, and yes this is probably the best this film will ever look. Anyone who likes this film should support BU and buy this disc, just as I have, except I didn't really enjoy it. Here's why- Apart from the lead actress and one other actor the performances and scripted dialogue are truly poor to the extent that they detract greatly from what could have been a well executed if rather derivative horror movie.
Beginning with promise and potential the opening of this picture draws you in with competent and appropriate cinematography for such a film. I'm not going into story specifics, that dear reader shall be your discovery, but suffice to say it just didn't work for this horror film fan. Yes there is some effective gore, though nothing purveyors of such special make-up effects won't have seen many times before and since. I could name the other horror film this one is obviously inspired by, but for the sake of first time viewers I won't.
What other nice things can I say about this flick, the soundtrack is early eighties synth, not as memorable as the best examples, check out the people who recorded it on IMDB.com to see how little they subsequently worked in such a capacity again.
Overall not the worst horror picture ever made, and I'm sure there are Nesting fans out there who will support this release, so go on and buy this safe in the knowledge that BU have Fulci's Zombie Flesh Eaters slated for a near future blu ray release.
