This review is from: Grapes Of Death [DVD] (DVD)
The story..The grapes that have been used to make the red wine for a small village community have been poisoned by a pesticide. This results in all those who drink it turning into decaying maniacs intent on killing anyone who remains normal...
I thought I'd review this as I believe the 2 star ratings given so far were a bit unfair. Directed by Jean Rollin, "Grapes of Death" has many positives sure to please horror fans,especially Euro horror fans. While never really a scary film it's definitely nicely atmospheric with some effective photography. Maybe a bit slow paced for some, but personally I never found it dull and in fact thought it enjoyable throughout. Large parts with no dialogue work fine as the scenery on show is cool and atmosphere effective. There are some scenes of suspense and also pretty good gore sequences that are enjoyable when they come. The decaying zombie types don't have the creepy or scary look of the Fulci zombies or Blind Dead Templars. More similar to those in things like "Mutant" or "Toxic Zombies". If you're a fan of Euro zombie films then there's no doubt you will want to see this too.
The picture quality is fine and it's in French with English subtitles.
