    I'll probably order both this and Bad Dreams from DDD since none of my local stores had either in stock at a good price. Btw, what the fuck is up with AB discontinuing the insert cards? That's one aspect that separated them from major studio releases. Keep on sucking on, AB.

    Not only does it not have an insert, the keepcase itself feels VERY flimsy and cheap. Kinda like the 10 packs you can buy for $5.

    Yes it is lacking extras, Buuut I picked this and bad dreams up at BB and they were only 11.99. By the way, be sure to check all the genre locations at BB if you pick it up there, at least at my local store they like to place horror movies in odd sections.

    Yeah. I scoured my local Best Buy's horror section for Visiting Hours. They had them in the Sci-Fi section. Go figure. :rolleyes:

    I've never seen it. Is it worth a blind buy?

    Definitely, especially since the price is so cheap. I still haven't picked it up, though.

    I'm so glad I picked this up the other day (along w/Bad Dreams)...Although I could have sworn that I'd seen this movie in its entirety back in it's day, and I own a copy on VHS, it was pretty clear once viewing the new DVD that I'd never actually seen this one all the way through. I remember that I wasn't very impressed with this movie originally, but I think that may be because I was well into my gore phase, and this came across as rather slow and uninteresting.

    I was pretty impressed with it now, and I think it is one of the better slasher/thrillers from the 80's. It's definitely no match on the gore/shocker level that Friday the 13th/My Bloody Valentine/Happy Birthday to Me etc. are, but it held up pretty well, I thought, and definitely kept my interest, providing a few creepy and nasty moments and some serious jump-scares. Maybe it's a sign of old fogey-ness creeping in, but I liked it and am glad I gave it another chance...

    Now, more importantly, what the hell happened to Linda Purl? I never see her on anything anymore.

    I ordered this yesterday with Bad Dreams as well. :D
     
  9. Did anyone else have a weird audio sound about ten minutes into the film when the two nurses are talking about the brunette nurses rating system for dates? It was like a one second thing but it made a glitchy sound...is it just my copy or all of them?

    I didn't notice the first time, but I double checked for you and I had a brief audio glitch when the nurses were rating dates at about 19:26.

    Now, as to why you thought that was the ten minute mark....

    This and Bad Dreams arrived from Amazon this week but I'm waiting for my new TV to be delivered so I can watch them on the big screen. :D
     
  12. I'm slow in the head lol I rechecked it when I was finished watching the movie and it's at exactly 19:26...what can I say, the opening of the movie goes fast for me....it seemed like ten minutes.

    Just watched my DVD last night with some friends. They were into it more than I expected. I think they were expecting a cheese-fest with dumb teens a la "The Burning", ect. so they found the villian and main characters pretty intriguing.
    Good film, overall. Still holds well. We, never for one second, felt William Shatner was at all serious in his role.

    I'd never seen this straight through until about a year ago.The Carolina Theater had been trying to get a 35 mm print for years but the studio didn't have one.Amazingly,a print they were unaware of showed up in storage and Carolina was able to screen it.It appeared to be a composite of two prints,one being almost pristine,the other very good.Honestly,I have seen new movies look a lot worse ! I quite enjoyed this,very entertaining .It was doubled with THE EYES OF LAURA MARS,the studios archive print,which hadn't been played since 1978.Looked brand new ! Great fun.

    The quality on YouTube isn't bad at all, I'm not sorry I missed watching it on Netflix (my computer barely tolerates YT).
