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 DVD/Blu-Ray set of a rather dull slasher movie. For slasher completists only, as casual viewers may find the unspectacular plot and production values to be lower than average B-movie standards.

Christmas Break has begun at a town university, 4 friends are preparing to tear down an old dorm that hasn't been used for a while. A homicidal maniac is killing them with their pals one by bloody one with anyone he can get his hands on.

Gory and enjoyable 80's slasher flick that co-stars Spaceballs actress Daphne Zuniga, sure there is little much plot in this movie but what sells this one is the cool kill sequences. There's bloody violence from drillings to industrial steaming, the film is a bit slow at times and too much like "Halloween" and "Black Christmas" at times but the film works nicely for slasher fans.

This Blu-Ray/DVD Combo has alright picture and fair sound despite it's age and the extras include the film presented in it's uncensored director's cut, audio commentary, isolated score, interviews and trailers.

I've seen a lot of slashers especially from the Golden Era. I consider this to be very underrated and one of the forgotten gems. I thought the acting was pretty good. It had great suspense and build. I really liked the ending. This movie stands out in a long line of forgettable slashers. I'd rank it on the level of House on Sorority Row. That is another one to check out. I was bummed this movie never came to regular dvd as I don't own a blu ray player. I own a lot of slasher movies and this is one I frequently rewatch. Enjoy!

The Dorm That Dripped Blood is an early eighties slasher movie that has its moments. It's okay, but I swear it brings nothing original to the table whatsoever. It lacks the oomph that carried most of the movies in the Friday the 13th series and the Halloween series. And for my money, even Terror Train is better. Also, the DVD is pretty grainy in a lot of scenes. For slasher completists, only.
