Overview

Killer poodles, mutant zombies, and Phyllis Diller star in the horrific comedy The Bone Yard. Presented in a 1.33:1 full-frame transfer, this is a decent if disappointing transfer. While the colors and black levels all appear sharp and well-saturated, there is an excessive amount of grain and dirt in the image. The audio is presented in what appears to be Dolby Digital Mono (the package doesn't specify), and is very appropriate for the low-budget origins of the film. Some distortion is heard in a few key scenes, though otherwise this is a very crisp soundtrack. No subtitles are included on this disc. Happily, fans will be overjoyed to discover a casket full of extra features on this disc starting with a commentary track by director James Cummins and producer Richard F. Brophy. This is a very fun audio track that adds a lot to one's knowledge of the film. Three interviews with star Phyllis Diller, as well as with the director and producer are also very funny and entertaining. Finally, there is a well done behind-the-scenes gallery of stills from the film, a theatrical trailer for the film, and some DVD-ROM features for a home PC computer. Digging up The Bone Yard on DVD just may be an enjoyable treat for horror fans everywhere.
