Editorial Reviews

Retro Shock-O-Rama Cinema presents a 2-disc twin bill of 1970s cult classic horror exploitation from the legendary B' movie team of director Al Adamson and producer Sam Sherman (Dracula vs. Frankenstein, Blazing Stewardesses, Satan's Sadists).

FIVE BLOODY GRAVES (1970) is a grim and downright gruesome western chock full of bloody gun blasts and violence galore. It stars the legendary John Carradine and B' stalwarts Robert Dix (Satan's Sadists), Scott Brady (Gremlins), and Jim Davis (TV's Dallas) and features the cinematography of Academy Award winner Vilmos Zsigmond.

A renegade tribe of monstrous, murdering, bloodthirsty redskins are on the war path and every settler will pay with his or her scalp. The lone man who can stop them is Ben Thompson, who rides the desert high plains with Death and Terror as his only companions. Ben seeks vengeance on Satago, the evil Apache chief who butchered his wife on their wedding day, and he teams up with Satago's half-brother to track him down and string him up for the vultures. When the death-dealing duo come upon a wrecked stagecoach carrying prostitutes and a preacher, they battle to keep the survivors alive and in one piece in savage Indian territory.

NURSE SHERRI (1978)
Theatrical Version and Alternate Unrated Cut
An evil necromancer has died and his restless demonic spirit invades the body of sexy nurse Sherri. Transformed into a maniacal killing machine, Sherri stalks the hospital corridors turning them blood-red with terror and madness. Impaling, slicing and dicing anyone in her path, Sherri's only hope becomes two friends who must unearth and destroy the necromancer's rotting corpse, thus sending the monstrous spirit back down to hell.

2.0 out of 5 stars Five Bloody Graves August 31, 2005
Format:DVD
FIVE BLOODY GRAVES, photographed by young Hungarian immigrant Vilmos Zsigmond (who would go on to win an Academy Award for `Close Encounters of the Third Time,' and receive nominations for a couple of others), looks good. It probably looked a lot better in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio, but I'm trying to open up this review on a positive note, so I won't mention the cheap full screen transfer. It has some good actors - Jim Davis (`Jock' Ewing of Dallas), Scott Brady, the ubiquitous John Carradine as a randy preacher. The actors acquit themselves in a professional manner. And... er... did I mention the scenery looked nice?

This low-low budget indy production from 1970 was directed by Al Adamson, an Ed-Wood-level bad director, and was written by, co-produced, and stars Robert Dix, son of Academy Award winning actor Richard Dix. Dix plays western gunslinger Ben Thompson. In a short commentary track that the 30-years older Dix literally mailed in we learn that Ben Thompson was a real-life western bad guy with a `death wish.' First time screenwriter Dix makes Death a ride-along character. Even though the Pale Rider is never seen, he, or He perhaps, provides the portentous off-screen narration (veteran actor Gene Raymond plays the Voice of Death.) The story is a little choppy, a fact that Dix reminds us of during an apologetic segment of the commentary track (Remember, this was a first effort....) and the characters are more than a little undercooked. Saloon owner Brady, a trio of floozies and preacher Carradine are traveling cross country towards a mining camp - a cradle of craven sinners, I reckon, good pickings for the floozies and the preacher - when their wagon is attacked and destroyed by a passel of passing blood-thirsty savages (`They aren't just Indians.

There is mistake on the back jacket of this DVD collection. Richard Dix did not star in Five Bloody Graves. As you know it was his son Robert Dix. To market this movie with a horror flick, does not reflect the the story line at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Double Drive-In Feature April 17, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nice prints and informative commentary make this DVD a welcome addition to your drive-in collection. So much information on Nurse Sherri including two versions (both are good, one with nudity, one without).
A shorter commentary on Five Bloody Graves, but interesting none the less.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother October 23, 2009
By D.B.
Format:DVD
Neither movie is presented in its original aspect ratio. I see that Amazon tells us they are 1.33:1, but the 2.35:1 Five Bloody Graves could have been letterboxed within that frame at least. It wasn't. Which makes any reference to this set showcasing the cinematography of Academy Award winner Vilmos Zsigmond a joke.

The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one is because the set does contain come decent quality drive-in intermission concession shorts. But the producers of the DVD blew it there too by not providing the option to watch the intermission shorts, trailers and feature in order. You can only choose each element independently from the menu page.
