Editorial Reviews

On the eve of Christmas vacation, a college dormitory stands condemned... the dark halls now vacant and unsafe. Student Joanne Murray and her close friends volunteer to help close down the building, unaware a psychopathic lunatic is hiding in the shadows. As the students disappear one by one, Joanne discovers the horrifying reality that if she is to survive, she alone will have to find a way to slay the brutal murderer. If you think you’ve seen this film totally uncut… think again! Synapse Films is proud to present THE DORM THAT DRIPPED BLOOD in a never-before-seen alternate version containing additional scenes, extended gore sequences, and a different sound mix. This transfer was created from the only existing 35mm answer print of the original “Directors’ Cut” entitled DEATH DORM, a version of the film thought to have been lost for over thirty years.
Bonus Features:
  • Anamorphic Widescreen (1.66:1) Transfer of the “Directors’ Cut”
  • Audio Commentary Featuring Directors Jeffrey Obrow and Stephen Carpenter
  • Interviews with Composer Christopher Young and Make-Up FX Creator Matthew Mungle
  • Original Theatrical Trailers

The Dorm that Dripped Blood also known as Pranks is a cookie cutter slasher from the early 80's, 1982 to be exact.It doesn't offer us anything new or special.
It's cheese appeal isn't even that sticky.

That being said I still like this movie because It's a retro Slasher flick and I love retro slashers,I love everything about them,the formula,the cliches. One of the cliches being the last girl standing battling it out with the maniac in a cat and mouse, life and death power struggle,this is a staple in most of the post Halloween slashers and this one is no exception.

The lead actress is probably the most unattractive heroine in Slasher film history..(Laurie Lipinski).. "forgive me,if you read this"..This Blue Ray/DVD combo is the unrated version so it is quite a bit better than "Pranks" which is the same film with a different title,it was released on DVD in 2003.

There are some really good kills in this version "Which was also titled Death Dorm as well as Pranks" .It also features scenes that weren't in the original VHS version.

The acting left quite a bit to be desired.It was after all Developed by a group of UCLA students on a ridiculously small budget..I'm sure Daphne Zuniga best known from Melrose Place who also starred in another 80`s slasher 'The Initiation' winces every time she thinks about her role in this movie.

She only has about 10 minutes of camera time.
If you're a Die hard retro slasher lover pick it up because again it's everything we have come to love and expect from our stalk and slash fests.

This HD transfer seems to have received a whole unholy hell load of flak. I went into it expecting not a whole lot, but I came out of it pleasantly surprised and being reminded once again that I shouldn't listen to the reviews unless they're written by people I really trust to know their stuff (and even then sometimes you gotta see things for yourself to decide). Could this film look better? If the original camera negative (OCN) could be found. This Blu-ray was transferred from a 35mm interpositive (IP)--that is, the 16mm OCN was blown up to a 35mm negative which was then used for the IP. What we get is a source two generations removed from the OCN, with the audio taken from an analog video master, so there are flaws, but to anyone's knowledge these are the best elements for the picture and sound that currently exist. However, it was cleaned up rather well and is a pleasing transfer with healthy, nondistracting grain. (Unless, of course, you're a grain hater--in which case, why are you watching movies shot on film??? The grain MAKES UP the image, and to scrub that away means to eliminate a certain amount of critical picture detail along with it.) Black levels can look a bit light at times, while most times being richly dark and appropriate. Color reproduction is good, and it's nice to have a film in its native 1.66:1 aspect ratio rather than cropping it for 16:9 (1.78:1), or worse, 1.85:1 (which is common practice in a lot of circles and really cramps the headroom and ruins the photography on a lot of releases). I didn't notice any kind of digital artifacting and the like.

The film itself is a fun ride and recommended for any fans of '80s slasher flicks.

This is a great slasher from the 80s that you can just turn your brain off and watch. I bought it elsewhere, and I've had it for awhile. The replay value is high because it's very non-complicated, just like stuff like THE BURNING or the FRIDAY THE 13th films; however, unlike those films and others similar to that, there's no summer camp or interesting scenery here. In fact, some may think it's even less complicated than those types of films because it never explains why the killer is the way he is. With most of the film taking place indoors at an old, cruddy looking dorm, the film has a very retro feel. The picture quality on the DVD is also grainy and crude looking, so this adds something to the ugly scenery. In the beginning, a man's hand is sliced open with a knife and is then killed off-screen. Soon after this, three other people are killed. What's a little disappointing is that after these murders the films body count begins to slow down with only one other death scene that's worth mentioning, although there's a part when a guy gets sliced, but not killed, near an ugly mutilated corpse. That other death scene involves a drill to the head that was heavily cut in the R-rated print. In terms of nudity, it doesn't deliver because there's only one topless scene. I'm not sure how many modern horror fans will like it because it definitely looks, feels and sounds so retro; I thought it had some nice soundtracks that really fit the film. I didn't have any problem with the acting, and I personally thought the directing was really good. With a low-budget, they just found some ugly locations, directed the film well, and added some good deaths and soundtracks.

The Blu-ray transfer may be a disappointment to some, but I really liked the way it looked. It really captures the way it probably looked when it was in theaters in the 80s. You can see everything clearly, it just looks crude and old. There's a regular DVD included, and the extras are good.
