1.0 out of 5 stars BOO! HISS! November 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
What a let-down. The only reason I bought this was because it contained the long-awaited DVD release of "Scorchy". And it's edited! None of the nudity that was so prevalent in the original theatrical release. WHY????? Why would someone want an edited (for television I'm assuming) version of this B-grade classic? Or why wouldn't Shout Factory advertise this as the edited version? Arggh!! I guess I'll just re-sell it and hold on to my old VHS copy until someone with a brain releases this movie as it was intended to be seen.

Okay, I bought this 4 film set for "Scorchy". Well first, the film print here isn't even called "Scorchy" -- instead going under the title of "RACE WITH DEATH". I would think that would have tipped someone off at the SHOUT FACTORY that this wasn't the proper print to be releasing. I was shouting all the way through this edited mess. All four letter words - GONE. All excessive gore and spurting blood - GONE. All nudity - GONE. Yep, you don't get to see Connie Stevens in the flesh like you do in the R-Rated version. How could they have dropped the ball on this exploitation classic?!!

"Trackdown" is also edited. All four letter words and excessive violence is GONE. Still worth watching because it's so damn entertaining. Also, the music score by Charles Bernstein ("Gator", "Mr. Majestyk") is excellent. Another plus - it is presented in widescreen format.

"Bamboo Gods" -- just avoid. You'll waste 90 minutes of your life that you'll never get back. I'd rather watch an episode of "CHIP's".

"Bulletproof" is the only movie that is uncut. It has been "matted" to 1.85:1 Aspect Ratio for widescreen TV sets.

All in all, a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT. I gave it only one star, that's because 0 stars wasn't available.

Think twice before you buy -- or better yet, if you want to see "Bulletproof", rent it from NETFLIX.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shout Factory blew it. November 19, 2013
Verified Purchase
Shout factory blew it on this one. Why use a edited TV version? What happened to the violence, the nudity, the profanity? This is the 'Disney version" of Scorchy. At least the VHS tape from Lightning Video was the original theatrical version,although in fullscreen. The movie was a widescreen American International release. C'mon Shout Factory, do it again and this time Do It Right.

1.0 out of 5 stars Scorchy is EDITED tv-print. Avoid this release. November 15, 2013
Scorchy is CUT, a butchered tv-print and since that's the title most of us wanted, this release is a complete misfire. How does this happen? Does no one check the masters they receive? I guess they just slap together whatever they are given as if it was just a pile of garbage. If they were going to use a full-frame master anyway, couldn't they at least get the uncut video-master that was used for the old uncut VHS release?!?! Unbelievable. "Trackdown" is the only other worthy film on this set, so that's basically what you're paying for as "Scorchy" is a bust, and not Connie Stevens' busts as those are edited out of this print. These budget releases from Shout also have terrible compression and look dark and fuzzy because they cram too much data on these discs. They are CHEAP, yes, but you get what you pay for.
