I watched this blu-ray in 1080i with a ps3 and the picture looked great. In particular Imprint really gives the high definition medium a chance to shine with it's vivid colors, stark contrast, and eerily beautiful imagery. If it wasn't for the content I'd say it would make a great showcase for what kind of quality you can really get from a high definition picture.
The story revolves around Haeckel, who is taken in by a couple, after a weary night, and finds himself deeply attracted to the man's wife, whom he later discovers has reanimated her ex-lover, with whom she is still infatuated and can't forget, through the use of sorcery, with her husband tolerating this misadventure, given the fact that he cannot fully satisfy her in bed, much to the chagrin of Haeckel, who upon witnessing her make love to the slightly decomposed corpse of her ex-lover, finds himself disgusted and repulsed, and despite the fact that he, eventually, does manage to engage in sexual intercourse with her, discovers that he is unable to totally satisfy her cravings - as more and more of her former lovers are reanimated and they all participate in an orgy.
With allusions to Frankenstein reanimating the corpse of body parts sewn together and brought to life through electricity, harnessed from lightning, as well as to the zombies featured in Romero's Night of the Living Dead, Haeckel's Tale is sure to please the hardest core of horror fans.Read more ›
In Homecoming, Dead soldiers rise up and in true minority fashion, insist on their right to vote. A very politicized episode that can be substituted with any living culture that currently exists, with blacks and browns, with the LGBTQ, etc. It's told from a right wing conservative pov, accusing the dead as being liberals and shouldn't be able to vote, because they want to vote for someone who is against the war (Iraqi). There is one character who turns and believes in the power of the vote, and that the dead should be able to vote, which is all the dead soldiers want.
Clive Barker's Haekel's Tale is set in the 17th or 18th century and is a period piece zombie thriller. More precisely, a necromancer rising a woman from the dead. It's got love, hate, jealousy and revenge...and dead people. Pretty good entry from Barker and an honorable mention to George Romero.(I don't know why, he wasn't in production or anything, his name was just mentioned in the beginning titles.
Chocolate is Mick Garris's story (the creator of the series, making his story last, as in the main event. I liked several of the stories better, but it's his show, so I guess he can put his movie wherever he likes.Read more ›

Of the four episodes, my favorite is "Chocolate" with Henry Thomas. It's more "psychological thriller," than horror.Published 8 months ago by Joe Stewart
