continues with the horror anthology #BodyBags
Synopsis: Three short stories in the horror genre: the first about a serial killer, the second about a hair transplant gone wrong, and the third about a baseball player.
I enjoy this Tales of the Crypt copy more than I should. A shame it never went to series. Still, we end up with three decent segments.
My favourites have always been "The Gas Station" and "Eye". The first has Carpenter creating an isolated location and filling it with craziness and scares, including fun cameos from #SamRaimi
and Wes Craven. "Eye" has Hooper taking a more psychological thriller approach. It's a bit more innovative, while the first is more traditional. Both are plenty entertaining.
I would have liked to have seen other horror greats tackle this format. A shame it never eventuated.
Have you seen this film? 👀 💭 Post your thoughts below!
Considering its made for TV origins, the stories look quite good. They're not overly sharp, but detail is decent and colours are nice. There isn't too much grain, though some compression artefacts are visible. The morgue segments are a touch softer, probably due in part to the darker setting and being bathed in blue light.
One of the most frustrating discs in my collection. Dialogue has distorting sibilance all the way through the film. Even some songs in the segments have it. "The Gas Station" is the worst. It's not inherent to the source either. Shout never instituted a replacement program when it was brought to their attention. Poor form as it ruins the entire experience.
