Product Description

Meet the charming, flamboyant Doctor Death (the incredible John Considine), a 1000-year-old man who has mastered the art of "selective reincarnation", promising to keep one's soul alive forever! The catch? He needs a fresh body to host it for you, and finding willing volunteers is an impossibility. When Fred's beloved wife dies, he refuses to believe she is gone forever. Dr. Death's loyal assistant, Tana (Florence Marly, the original QUEEN OF BLOOD), offers a supernatural solution to return his wife to him...only to run into trouble when Dr. Death can't find a suitable body for her to reside in! The bodies pile up and Fred must choose between his lost love and stopping a mad doctor hellbent on success! Directed with tongue firmly in cheek by Eddie Saeta, this colorful horror oddity must be seen to be believed!

I had never heard of this movie before its release on this DVD. It is a real treat for fans of Seventies horror films, in the vein of Blacula, Count Yorga, Deathmaster, or maybe even The Abominable Dr. Phibes. It sports a number of attractive women and as always focuses on the curious early 1970's attraction to the supernatural. Best of all, though, is the ubiquitous and cheerfully wicked Doctor Death! John Considine plays the part with considerable relish. The story hangs around a guy whose beloved wife has recently died and his desire to resurrect her (he is haunted by her saying, I will come back to you). After many false starts he encounters the ghoulish Dr. Death who promises to help him with his problem, and in fact won't stop once Doctor Death's usual method does not produce results, which is to kill someone else to enter the desired body. I think too much more plot would spoil the movie, but the remainder of the movie is by turns campy fun punctuated with some seriously twisted moments to keep the horror element. Other actors in this feature vary in quality, from the wooden husband to the odd and entertaining cameos by the likes of Florence Marly and Moe Howard!

The print of this movie looks very nice with bright colors and no visible flaws. The sound is similarly clearly audible. The extras consist of a frankly rather boring commentary, but I don't like most commentaries, by Considine and others. The best extras are an interesting interview with Considine and trailers for other movies to be released by Scorpion. I found this movie to be great fun and highly recommend it.

This was actually a pretty good movie. My husband and I bought it only because he's a big Three Stooges fan, and Moe Howard has a minor role. We were both very pleasantly surprised at how entertaining it was. Not a bad story at all!

Superb quality print, great cast and amazing extras make this one worth owning. John Considine is well-cast and the costume is also memorable. John's voice has not changed as he contributes a lively commentary and has some great on-screen moments in the extras that I will not divulge here. A lost classic of the 70s, rediscovered for a new generation to enjoy.

If you like your horror films obscure and bizarre, you can do no better than this little horror flick from the 70's. It even contains a guest appearance by Moe Howard, who was then the last surviving member of the Three Stooges. And watch out for that burst of extreme gore that comes near the end of the film!
