Overview

This inspired double-feature DVD from MGM presents a skillfully matched pair of films in a package guaranteed to please the budget-conscious horror fan. This disc presents Motel Hell and Deranged and nicely remastered, letterboxed transfers that are a big improvement on the dim, grainy versions of both films previously available on home video. Some fans might be disappointed that Deranged isn't the fully uncut edition that has previously circulated on video but the R-rated edition used here is the most complete edition of the film that is legally available. In terms of audio, Deranged suffers from a tinny mono mix that sometimes makes the dialogue difficult to hear but Motel Hell benefits from a nice Surround stereo mix that serves up the film's soundtrack with plenty of punch. Extras are limited to a trailer for each film: The Deranged trailer is amusingly hyperbolic in 1970s exploitation film fashion and the Motel Hell trailer eschews the film's humor angle in an attempt to sell it as a straight-ahead shocker. Despite the periodic sound flaws on Deranged, both films look nice on DVD and the generous pairing of the two makes it well worth the money for horror fans.

    "Motel Hell" is worth it (forget about "Deranged")

    The first time my daughter & I saw "Motel Hell", it was a "by chance" viewing on TV. It has enough of that off-kilter, horror-movie charm that it struck that "if we have the opportunity to see it again, we will" chord! I've looked off-and-on for this to come out on DVD and purchased it; we viewed it again and still enjoyed this movie for how it was intended - a totally off-the-wall, tongue-in-cheek pastiche of horror movies that pulls it off perfectly!

    On the other hand, don't even bother with "Deranged": the acting & directing is poor, the plot doesn't even begin to hold water. "Deranged" is pretty much a waste of good DVD space.
