Carpenter rarely directed TV films due to creative restrictions and the fact it prevented him from using his favored 2.35:1 aspect ratio however since "Body Bags" was broadcast on a movie channel, he never had to worry about content (though it was unfortunately filmed with 1.33:1 in mind.)
Sadly the DVD is no longer available BUT there is still hope! "Body Bags" is now owned by Lions Gate Entertainment and you can write to them and ask that they re-release it on DVD!
Here is their address:

the second story is way funny! youll laugh youre hair off! ha ha ha ha!!!! a bit of light refreshment after the sheer terror of the first story.
the third story, gets a bit more creepy, about an eye transplant, but i dont think its scary enough! mind you the flashbacks to someone elses vision are good,
all in all the best part of this film is the first 30 mins!!!! very enjoyable film!
An enjoyable horror anthology produced by John Carpenter with 2 stories directed by him and one by Tobe Hooper of Poltergeist and Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame. The film stars David Noughton, Sheena Easton, Wes Craven, Tom Arnold, Deborah Harry, Twiggy, Tobe Hooper and Roger Corman. This movie has a couple of interesting stories yet the first one is a slasher kind of story you normally see yet i dug the Haddonfield reference which was the name of the hometown in Carpenter's Halloween and there is some gruesome gore here and decent performances mainly by Stacey who is superb yet Carpenter isn't a very good actor despite he is the host of this collection of stories.
Scream Factory does it again with their hit line of DVDs and blu-rays in this blu-ray/DVD combo that has finally the UNCUT version. It has extras like commentaries, featurette and trailer, Scream made another winner.
I used to own this movie as a previously viewed VHS tape from a local Blockbuster. I know most reviews have made the case that "The Gas Station" was their least favorite of the three segments, but that was the one that I liked the most.
In fact I liked it so much that that was the only reason I decided to purchase this on DVD. Like I said I know someone mentioned there had been editing, but I figured I'd give it a whirl. It had also been so long since I'd seen it I was anxious to view it again, (my VHS copy long missing in action.)
Sadly I was quite disappointed in the edits made to the "Gas Station" segment. First of all I swear I remember her getting her work issue blue shirt. Here she just appears in a scene wearing it. She also just appears in the bathroom apparently trying to calm her self down after something has happened, but we see nothing that should make her feel upset yet. Also didn't Wes Craven have a small cameo in this? If so he is nowhere to be found in my version.
I just wish for whatever reason they hadn't found these cuts to be crucial to the release on DVD. Out of about twenty some odd movies this is the first to sort of disappoint me. I also wish it had been widescreen, but I know it was made for T.V., maybe that wasn't possible?
