Editorial Reviews

Two Masters of Horror John Carpenter (Halloween, The Thing) and Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Lifeforce) come together to create a chilling anthology of terror.

Alex Datcher (Passenger 57) stars as a woman working the late shift at The Gas Station while a killer is on the loose. Then, Stacy Keach (Road Games) can’t stand the thought of losing his Hair and he’ll do anything to keep it. And finally, Mark Hamill (Star Wars) portrays a baseball player that submits to an Eye transplant after he loses an eye in a car accident.

Featuring guest appearances by Deborah Harry, Sheena Easton, Twiggy, David Naughton (An American Werewolf In London), John Agar (Tarantula), David Warner (Time After Time) and cameos by Wes Craven, Tobe Hooper and Roger Corman, Body Bags delivers a fright-filled night of horror.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Carpenter April 25, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Body Bags" was an anthology type horror film featuring three stories, 2 by John Carpenter and the third by Tobe Hooper. It originally aired on the Showtime movie channel in the early 90s.
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:

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect friday night flick March 12, 2009
the first story is basically halloween in a petrol station, or if you are american (gas station, guaranteed to scare you witless,the best of the stories,

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Body Bags is essential! August 25, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
These 3 mini stories in Body Bags absolutely rule! I have seen this 2 times, and I can't wait to see this again.. The 1st story is about this young lady that works graveyard shift in a rather obscure gas-station.. She gets scared over any little thing.. But towards the end things start to get pretty good, with this homocidal maniac stalks her.. 2nd story was pretty bizarre and somewhat boring to say the least, this is my least fave story. It's all about this chubby wubby guy that wants hair, because he is going bald very quickly. Anyway, he becomes very obssessed with this and decides to go see this weird old doctor that uses some kinda miracle to grant him more hair.. Well, to put this story short, just be careful what you wish for, because you might just get it, heh.. 3rd story is probably the best, and most chilling.. This famous baseball player gets in a nasty automobile accident and gets stabbed in his eye, so anyway, they take him to the hospitol, and they give him a brand new eye.. But, this eye is no regular eye... It's from a very very disturbed person to say the least.. Well, I guess I will stop here, go see this, at least rent it, I think you'll like.. Definitely see it at night, though. :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Three stories to horrify you. September 17, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
John Carpenter (the master of Halloween [1978]) who plays a coroner tells you a new story. A woman starts her first night as a gas station cashier. She is all alone. One customer she meets is David Naughton (American Werewolf in London Special Edition) whose character was born in Haddonfield (Yes, the one in HALLOWEEN) where this story is set. Later a homeless man asks for the key to the bathroom. But the woman mistakenly forgot the key inside her booth. More suspense. Later she finds the homeless man murdered. More suspense. There is a killer at the gas station. She thought she was alone. But that's not all. John Carpenter will have two more stories to show you. The second story stars Stacy keach and Sheena Easton. Keach is a middle-aged man who is upset that he is going bald, just has thin hair. He tries everything with no success. Then he goes to a professional hair company. The third story stars Mark Hamill and Twiggy.

Body Bags made our list of the 10 or so older 80s/90s movies we buy for October viewing every year. They're a trip down memory lane for us. I bought a VCR a few years ago just to be able to re-experience watching VHS, like we did when we were kids. This VHS version was a steal, compared to the DVD price for the same movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars BodyBags.. April 10, 2007
By B. Yap
Dear Readers and soon to purchase this DVD customer..

I'm really let down when I pop in the DVD into my DVD player. I was so eager waiting the arrival of this DVD at my home. The cover or the packaging is just like the normal of the others DVDs..

The whole let down of this movie is because there "ARE" "A LOT" of scenes has been deleted or edited.. Thumbs down... I still prefer the LD "Laser Disc" version where the sound and image quality is more superb than this DVD. If anyone just want to get hold of this DVD I'll recommend to purchase it but don't put so much hope on it..Like I did...

The dvd comes in three short movie..first the Gas Station...if without the deleted scenes you can expect more GOre.. secondly is the Hair.. which is my favourite...then lastly is the "the eye".. my dad's fav. Check it out yourself..

5.0 out of 5 stars A 90's Trifeca cortesy of John Carpenter October 7, 2012
This time of year really opens the floodgates for the horror films of the world. As it gets cooler it just becomes a natural progression that urges us towards football, horror flicks, and fine autumn brews. It also gives one the opportunity to revisit films we once thought highly of years ago, and wanting to see if its still lives up to reputation. This brings us to a film we once saw long ago, late at night on Showtime, called Body Bags. Written by John Carpenter, Body Bags is complied of three horror shorts. This is by far one of our favorite styles of horror done by one of our favorite directors/writers/producers. There really was no doubt it would still be enjoyable, but it actually turned out to be even better then once remembered. It's an absolute perfect movie to watch late on a risk Friday or Saturday night.

Body Bags opens up in a morgue with our insane, formaldehyde drinking, host played by John Carpenter himself. The films is presented similar to a Tales From the Crypt episode with plenty of off color jokes tossed in. The first story involves a young college girl who starts her first night of work. Seems pretty normal, except for the fact she's working the night shift at a gas station in the middle of nowhere with reports of a serial killer on the loose. The atmosphere in this one is extremely creepy. It's certainly no Petro 96, and there's no weird Russian eating fudgetowns out of your hand, but its equally as creepy. The second is about a balding man obsessed regaining his one lustrous head of hair. He tries every product on the market, every hair club, and even spray paints his head with no success. Lot's of laughs but not a great success. His luck seemingly changes when he finds a doctor experimenting with a new method.
