Customer Reviews

Generally, it was a ok movie, but not the one it says it is.
Lamont Winchester
It seems to flow pretty well, but there are a few apparent "lapses", which may simply be due to the bizarre directorial technique used in many such films!
Michael E. Mitchell
A, once I found out what the story was, I was really interested, and B, look how cheap it is!

The recent Troma DVD is the best option to date for watching this gloomy, atmospheric chiller about the walking dead. Most versiosn are missing gore or nudity, but Troma has taken great pains to present a complete presentation, albiet sourced from a few different places. Teh film is presneted with the English dub ( no original Spanish with English subs ) and with all the 'good bits' intact.
The disc really excells in the extra department as well, with three interviews with the people responsible for it's creation, a director's commentary track in Spanish with English subtitles, a trailer and poster gallery, and a complete second feature, THE SWEET SOUND OF DEATH from 1965.
If you are a fan of Spanish horror or Paul Naschy ( he is very good here in a supporting role )you simply cannot go wrong here, especially for the asking price.

This Troma DVD represents amazing value for money with two films on the disc plus the kind of extras for the main feature you used to get from Anchor Bay and Blue Underground all for a super low price. The picture and sound quality are both acceptable for such a rare movie, which is not a classic, but is very good for such a low budget production, with some creepy-ish moments and sprinklings of gore, but the desolate village location and underground scenes are effectively distinctive from other pictures of this genre. Paul Naschy steals every scene he's in and no-one puts in a shoddy performance. I'd never seen this film before, but I'm proud to add it to my collection. I can only hope Troma gains the support of horror fans enabling them to acquire more rare treats to pour some love over, the DVD case is nice too in a white case with terrific cover art. My 5 star rating is for the overall package of value and love shown to fans by Troma.

I bought "The Hanging Woman" from Amazon.Com for two reasons. A, once I found out what the story was, I was really interested, and B, look how cheap it is! Perfect.
The story is about a man named Serge who, upon his arrival in some small village in the 19th Century, comes across a woman's hanging body. He finds the family of the woman, and thus, he stays with them. (?) Well, a lot of the movie is a jumble. An investigation on the woman's supposed murder, a woman at the house who is involved with black magic and some ugly necrophiliac guy who lives under the house, and the owner of the house being a scientist experimenting with the dead. This somehow all comes together when Serge and Doris, the scientist's daughter, team up to solve some of these mysteries. It climaxes with the dead rising in the caves under the house, with Doris trapped in there, and Serge fighting off death up at the house as the mystery of it all starts to come into place.
There are some genuinely scary scenes, and some blood, but other than that, not much. The ending is a shock, and one of the best I've seen in a long time. For that, I have to give this movie some points. But other than that, it is pretty weak, especially for a zombie film. If you are looking for standard horror, check this out, if you are looking for a zombie movie, avoid this and find something else.

I WASNT PLANNING ON BUYING THIS MOVIE BUT I WAS IN A LOCAL DVD STORE IN AZ AND I TOOK IT OFF THE SHELF TO CHECK IT OUT, TO MY AMAZEMENT IT WAS ONLY 6.99 NEW SO I GAVE IT A CHANCE, BEING I REALLY LOVE OLDER HORROR FILMS OPPOSED TO NEW STUFF, IM GLAD I GOT IT. THIS MOVIE IS GREAT, SOME FANS MAY REMEMBER ONE OF THE CREEPIEST CORPSES IN A HORROR FILM WAS IN BAVAS BLACK SABBATH, THOSE WHO SEEN IT KNOW WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT (OLD LADY IN THE BED) AND IN THE HANGING WOMAN THE ACTUAL WOMAN WHOS FOUND HANGING IS A CLOSE SECOND, SHES VERY CREEPY LOOKING, ALSO GOOD STORY. THIS FILM FEATURES BEAUTIFULL WOMAN, ZOMBIES, AND A CRAZY GRAVE DIGGER WHOS A NECROPHILIAC. THIS VERSION IS ALSO COMPLETE AND UNCUT WITH TONS OF SPECIAL FEATURES, IF YOUR A HORROR FAN AND YOU LIKE OLDER STUFF GET THIS MOVIE!!

Troma's release of "The Hanging Woman" is flawed, but probably this is the sort of film that may never get to feel the loving touch of the restorer. Right off, one may notice that it plays like a pretty low-quality VHS tape. After a bit, you will notice that the picture changes...this was clearly pieced together from various sources to present the film as completely "uncut" as possible. Who knows if this is actually every part of this hithertofore hacked-up film? It seems to flow pretty well, but there are a few apparent "lapses", which may simply be due to the bizarre directorial technique used in many such films! This is dubbed in English...that's it. Not other language/soundtrack/subtitle choice. IN MY OPINION, this is one of the most classic examples of 60s-70s Euro-Gothic (and by "Gothic" I don't mean rich, dejected whiners with the lastest shade of black fingernail polish who are REALLY afraid of the dark and would die of an apoplectic seizure before letting a real vampire come anywhere near them) genre. The buildings and their environs are spot-on, the various CATACOMBS we are treated to are deliciously creepy and usually well-lit (unrealistic, I know, but preferable to the UN-lit sets we sometimes see!), some of the characters have a tangible PERSONALITY(all parts are good-to-well acted, especially the kind've cool cat hero played by Stelvio Rosi's alter ego "Stan Cooper" and the wacky, blustery detective), there are instances of nudity and even semi-steamy sex, some keen NON-computer-animated GORE...and some really, really eerie corpses...dead AND living ones! From what I recall from the too-many-for-my-own-good Horror films I've seen, these are some of the coolest and most unique corpses I've seen.Read more ›
