The Burning

( 2 )

Overview

MGM has done well by horror fans with this unexpected but welcome release of The Burning. Fans will be happy with the transfer for two reasons. The first is that it is an excellent-looking anamorphic transfer that captures the film's rich, colorful cinematography in high style. The other reason is that despite the R-rating on the cover, this is the fully uncut version of the film with all of Tom Savini's controversial makeup effects intact. As for the audio, the disc sticks to the film's original mono mix. A ...

Overview

MGM has done well by horror fans with this unexpected but welcome release of The Burning. Fans will be happy with the transfer for two reasons. The first is that it is an excellent-looking anamorphic transfer that captures the film's rich, colorful cinematography in high style. The other reason is that despite the R-rating on the cover, this is the fully uncut version of the film with all of Tom Savini's controversial makeup effects intact. As for the audio, the disc sticks to the film's original mono mix. A stereo remix would have been nice but the mono mix is a fairly robust and well-defined one that gets a lot of mileage out of Rick Wakeman's electronic musical score. Also, the film offers a few nice extras despite its catalog-title status. The first is a commentary track with director Tony Maylam and journalist Alan Jones. It's a chatty, likeable affair, with Maylam offering plenty of informative and unpretentious reflections on his work and Jones doing a good job of priming him to offer up interesting anecdotes. Also included is a nice little featurette entitled "Blood 'N' Fire Memories" that allows Tom Savini to discuss his memories of the film and how he achieved the its gruesome special effects. Savini is an engaging interview subject as always and fans will be pleased to see a few snippets of his on-set home videos in this piece. All in all, this is an excellent disc and a must for any horror fan interested in the history of the slasher film subgenre.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
A seminal early slasher in the history of horror, The Burning is a bloody, sex-filled summer-camp romp that dishes out the kills and the scares in healthy doses. One of the first films to carry the Miramax brand with story, screenplay, and produced-by credits going to the Weinstein brothers, the film has become not only a cult film for the genre crowd, but also a bastard piece of cinema history. Thanks to a disagreement with the producers of Friday the 13th, Part 2, makeup effects maestro Tom Savini also jumped onboard and created some of his most masterful effects on the project. With deliberant pacing and shocking scenes of full-on gore, The Burning delivers on the creep-out levels and would probably be better regarded if not for the boom of familiar flicks that came out after this release. Keep your eyes out for Jason Alexander (with hair) as one of the main horny camp counselors and a very young Holly Hunter as a camper with one line of dialogue. Infamous for its raft massacre scene, the film was severely cut for its domestic distribution and has yet to see an uncut release here in the States.

    Synopsis

    "The Burning" is an excellent slasher film that can at times be like all other slashers, but is mostly different from them all. It's about Camp Blackfoot, a camp haunted by the horrible past, when a bunch of campers accidentally engulfed their caretaker, Cropsy, in flames, sending him to 5 years in intense treatment at a hospital. Well 5 years is up, and Cropsy is out...for revenge that is! After getting rid of a prostitute, he heads back to Camp Blackfoot with a pair of garden shears, ready for some carnage. Cannon Fodder include: Jason Alexander, Larry Joshua, Leah Ayres, Brian Backer, Holly Hunter, Carrick Glenn, and Brian Matthews. Who will make it out of...The Burning!
