Worth the Wait,

This review is from: Blue Eyes of the Broken Doll (Special Edition) (DVD)
I could go into the lengthy story about my fascination and love for this film, but it could take years to tell. To keep it simple, I remember renting this movie from Blockbuster about 15 years ago when it was still under it's Americanized title, "The House of Psychotic Women." It was also about 15 minutes shorter, had sketchy sound and faded colors. It became an immediate cult classic for myself and a small group of friends. I wound up ordering a copy through Blockbuster shortly after renting it, and about a year later I received it... (Thank heaven for Amazon and the internet, lol... waits of a year for a product often make you forget why you ordered in the first place.)
After acquiring a couple of different copies of this same movie over the years, I finally had the pleasant surprise that it was going to be released on dvd a few months ago. Yes, I preordered. And yes, I waited by the mailbox. Was it worth it? You'd better believe it. The sound and picture quality are amazing. The special features, especially the occasionally silly commentary with Naschy and Aured are pure gold. Great packaging. Great menus. (I've honestly never complimented a dvd for having great menus... but this one really seems classy.) Overall, it's a fantastic repackaging of a great cult classic. I won't go into the story line. I'm sure other reviewers have already done that. Anyway, to try and describe the story... well... you'll either love it, or you'll walk away saying, "What in the name of...?"
If you're into cheesy 70's imported horror flicks, then you have to watch this. If you've already watched it and remember it, I'd say you're a fan. If you are a fan and don't have this yet, trust me... get it. BCI did a great job from the hitchhiking opening to the bear trap to the cellar. A must have
