very good release for a cult classic - despite the specs it IS the dir
8 September 2013
Excerpt: Very good release!! I was disappointed when I got it on release day and saw that the back cover said it was R-rated and 90 minutes...but this is not true! I watched it and confirmed it is the 95 minute unrated director's cut. I compared the sex scene and several deaths with my uncut DVD and there was nothing missing. Running time was 95 min. It also says "Aspect Ratio: Widescreen" on the back cover....haha nice job, guys.
Excerpt: Castle Freak is amongst director Stuart Gordon strongest efforts. This tale of an unsuspecting american family inheriting said castle where something lurks in the dark makes for a serious, nasty and gory B fun. The gore is neat. Shot on a shoestring, production never looks cheap, but this transfer does. I had to adjust my rating after a second viewing because damages are just too big. There is tons of dirt and debris, scratches, burns, you name it.
