5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Presentation For This Drive-In Classic!, October 10, 2012
This review is from: Savage Streets (2 disc remastered edition) (DVD)
This review is for the 2012 release of "Savage Streets" presented by Scorpion Releasing. After viewing the 1985 Vestron Video VHS release of this movie for years, then New Star's 2003 release in the early '00s, Scorpion Releasing finally got this movie right! They have really treated this movie with respect. The picture quality is so clear, it looks like a completely different movie, all in a good way. The original '80s Vestron release had a grainy and dark look to it, which is the way I thought this movie was originally filmed. New Star's version looked a little better in the colour and skin tones department. They claimed that it was digitally re-mastered, but had a few video noise lines towards the end, indicating it was transferred from the VHS master tape. I missed the 2008 BCI release, which was fetching BIG $$$s when it went out-of-print, so I am not able to comment on the quality of their release. This new 2012 release by Scorpion has a flawless picture, which is crisp and clean throughout the entire movie. The choice of artwork in a clear keepcase is a nice added touch. The soundtrack album artwork is what is showing packaged from the factory. The cover can be removed and flipped over to the slightly modified version of the movie poster artwork, which looks amazing and very colourful. The discs are manufactured A1 too-no scratches, excessive dust or bubbling plastic on the playing surface. The mono sound, which is the way this movie was originally recorded, is clear. The sound was never an issue with this movie in previous releases, even on VHS. Most importantly, Scorpion has kept this movie's duration intact, no edits or additions. It's the original 93 minute version that was originally released in theatres back in the '80s and on VHS & DVD through the years. On a final note, the added features like cast interviews, commentaries, "Savage Streets" trailer, some other "classic" '80s movie trailers, choice of viewing movie with host Kat Skratch or viewing the movie without her intro, really complement this 2 DVD set. If you are a fan of this vigilante classic from 1984, Linda Blair & '80s movies, this set is a must have for DVD collectors.
