Stanley grew up in South Africa and learned the folklore of the natives at the feet of his mother, an anthropologist who collected stories and folktales of the African tribes. This story revolves around a shape-shifting spirit, variously called a Soupwah, a Num or in Afrikaans, a Nagtloper (literally Night-Runner). The Nagtloper (Robert John Burke) feeds off the life-force of the damned - people who have lost the will to live. Into his orbit float two lost souls, Wendy (Chelsea Field) a South African woman fleeing from a failed marriage and Ben Mukurob (Zakes Mokae), a Zulu policeman whose life came to an end years ago with the death of his wife. Who will attain deliverance? The white woman, the black policeman or the Nagtloper, whose own aim is to return to the spirit world from where it came. The desolate emptiness of the Namib is beautifully captured. Scenes are exquisitely choreographed, almost like a ballet. I don't know if I would recommend it to the usual horror film fan, but it is definitely one for cinephiles.Read more ›
If Criterion were selling this it would cost in the neighbourhood of [...]. Subversive report that every copy of the set has sold out, and the only ones still circulating are in the hands of retailers.
The film is 16x9 and perfectly encoded for this DVD release. The colors are vibrant and the sound is amazing.
This has got to be one of the most underrated films in horror movie history. Smart, stylish, and inventive, DUST DEVIL is an amazing accomplishment. It's even more impressive that director Richard Stanley was only 24 years old when he directed this classic!
THANK YOU Subversive Cinema, for giving this movie a spectacular release. The movie looks excellent and the bonus features are very informative. Going way above and beyond, Subversive has unleashed DUST DEVIL in a FIVE DISC package!
It is only in the bonus discs that I see anything negative about this release. One of the DVD's is the entire "workprint" of DUST DEVIL. This is supposed to give us some added layers, bits, and pieces that are not in the "Final Cut" (Richard Stanley's approved version, on the first disc). Personally, I did not find this workprint DVD all that interesting. There was not much additional on this workprint version compared to the Final Cut on disc one. I would have been content with a brief "deleted scenes" bonus feature on the main disc, instead of a whole DVD devoted to this longer, unfinished version.
Another bonus disc is a feature length Richard Stanley documentary about a member of the SS who searched for the Holy Grail.Read more ›
