1992 (1998) - Trimark Home
review by Todd Doogan,
special to The Digital Bits
For comedic horror, you can't do much better than this messy hit
from Peter Jackson -- the man currently behind the reworking of The
Lord Of The Rings trilogy. It's the story of a boy, a
girl, and the boy's dead mother. That, and a priest who kicks ass
for the Lord.
Disc Ratings (Video/Audio/Extras):
I know that Jackson has hours of behind the scenes footage, plus
there's a longer edit of this film in Europe. Why Trimark didn't get
that extra stuff is beyond me. The audio is clean, but the video is
slightly noisy. Nothing to kick the disc to the curb for, but
Overall Rating: B+
It's a fun flick, that I'm always in the mood for. The disc is all
right - I'm not ecstatic about it, but I am happy that it's on DVD.
Now where is Meet The Feebles?
97 mins, NR, letterboxed widescreen (1.85:1), 16x9 enhanced,
single-sided, single-layered, Amaray keep case packaging, theatrical
trailer, film-themed menus, scene access (24 chapters), languages:
English (DD 2.0) subtitles: English, Spanish and French, Closed
Zombies and Jackson. It's a marriage made in hell, and I'm there
every step of the way. Someday, DVD companies will know better than
to release cult movies like this as bare bones editions. But as it
stands now, at least we have it on DVD.
