A Pretty Good, But Dated Horror Movie,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Scalps (DVD)
I remember seeing "Scalps" years ago, but it was one of those infamous, chopped up versions, so I was pretty excited to see a restored version released on DVD. No, this isn't nearly the bloodfest that "Evil Dead" is, but considering it's time of release, "Scalps" was a pretty hardcore horror film. And there really wasn't a complete copy on video. Despite what some other reviewers say, this is still basically an 80's slasher, and that is a good thing, and that is probably what you want considering your reading reviews on "Scalps". The gore effects are pretty good, and the acting and story are pretty good too. "Scalps" has it's tense or scary moments. Overall I would recommend you add this to your horror collection if you are a fan of 80's horror. The only reason I would deduct any points from "Scalps" is that the movie desperately needs to smooth out the rough edges. Scenes will jump-cut to the next scene jarringly, and with the restoration and adding censored scenes in, it's obvious where the master print was played with. Still, "Scalps" is a cool little movie.
