Hatchet for the Honeymoon / Scream of the Demon Lover Euroshockers 2002 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This is a fun collection of two weird little films and a classic radio show - which is missing from the product description, something Triton Media usually included as an extra.
HATCHET FOR THE HONEYMOON is a good thriller by legendary Italian director Mario Bava. There are some supernatural elements but the film is more a very stylized murder mystery. The print used here is somewhat widescreen but there is still information missing on the edges. The colors seem a bit off as well, with many people having a green pallor to their skin (not intentional, I assure you).
SCREAM OF THE DEMON LOVER is an odd duck. There is a disfigured killer loose in a small village, and a beautiful scientist has nightmares that she’s being attacked. Something has been trimmed in this print because there are a couple abrupt jumps in the action. This one runs just over 94 minutes and not the 96 listed on the box. However it’s still a fun film even in this version.
The other extra here is a 1932 radio adaptation of FRANKENSTEIN. It’s a thirteen episode production based on the original Mary Shelly novel that runs 3 hours. Although a little creaky for today’s youth, it’s a good listen to have on while you’re doing things in the house.
For the price this isn’t a shabby set to get if you’re in the right frame of mind.
