The Monster Club

( 2 )

Overview

In a completely unexpected move, Pathfinder Films pulled out all the stops on the Vincent Price cheese-filled classic The Monster Club. It's hard to say who really demanded this, but it's fantastic nonetheless. For a little-known feature from 1981 that never hit the theaters and made its legend from countless cable showings, this DVD is packed to the gills and surprising at every turn. First off is the transfer issue -- the disc's producers couldn't find the original film elements, so instead they turned to a ...

Overview

In a completely unexpected move, Pathfinder Films pulled out all the stops on the Vincent Price cheese-filled classic The Monster Club. It's hard to say who really demanded this, but it's fantastic nonetheless. For a little-known feature from 1981 that never hit the theaters and made its legend from countless cable showings, this DVD is packed to the gills and surprising at every turn. First off is the transfer issue -- the disc's producers couldn't find the original film elements, so instead they turned to a high-quality video master that was available at the time. What's great is that they not only admit this before you watch the film, but the print actually turns out to be quite something! The colors are vibrant in the 1.85:1 widescreen picture and the stereo track is rich and full, especially on the many rock tunes that litter the film. Extras are an unexpected lot on this disc too -- with a trailer, biographies, a still gallery, and a film essay from George Reis of DVD Drive-In all for your viewing enjoyment. Also included are the original press notes (circa 1980) that provide info on the film, along with an interview with Price and an article on Stuart Whitman. On the one downside, Pathfinder has decided to go with actor/pundit/idiot Luke Y. Thompson as their in-house critic on the commentary track (along with his "now-I-have-an-English-accent, now-I-don't" pal Gregory Weinkauf). Self-proclaimed Hollywood icon, LYT as he likes to call himself, Thompson is a complete buffoon whose only achievement is effectively being the most annoying human being on the planet (those who doubt this, check out the first ten seconds of the commentary for the horrible proof). There's also an Easter egg that includes an interview with LYT and an uncredited actor from The Monster Club that's a little more tamed down on the idiot factor, but worthless in the end. Thankfully, the release ends on a high note, and that is the inclusion of the entire soundtrack -- a big score for those who dig B.A. Robertson's "Sucker for Your Love" song. With a wide release, hopefully this DVD will find its way into the right genre fans' hands. It's a surprisingly fun disc for a surprisingly fun B-movie flick.

    When will it be realised??

    I have more than a year waiting for this DVD movie. I remember watching this more than 20 years ago and it's still on my head. For 60's-70's horror movies lovers, this is a must.

    The first 'Childrens' Horror film?

    Is it really twenty four years since The Monster Club was released...To me it seems like last week!..It was made to be the first childrens horror film..No blood or gore..a bit of music and a couple of laughs..Yes its tame and ok its cheesey..Were those masks meant to be real 'Monsters'?...NO they were like the rest of the film..FUN!..were these masks really supplied by a Milkman?..er .. well I did work in a dairy making a living whilst trying to break into film.. This dvd is meant to be fun..so go with it..watch it a few times and who knows it might just make you smile..so sit back and enjoy...as that was its purpose.
