Overview

From Image Entertainment's Euroshock Collection comes this lurid black-and-white body-snatcher flick. There is the option of watching the U.K. or "Continental" version of the film (the Continental version offers about a minute's worth of nudity). Both versions are presented widescreen with an aspect ratio of 2.35:1. The print quality offers no visible marks but is overall very soft. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 (mono) and again it is just adequate. Bonus material includes a trailer for the film under the title "Fiendish Ghouls." There is also an alternative main title sequence which runs approximately two minutes. Also included is an animated "Photo and Poster Gallery" which lasts about 41 seconds. The disc is rounded off with a filmography section which has text movie credit listings for stars Peter Cushing, Donald Pleasence, and director John Gilling. A nice-enough package that could have used a better source print.
