Product Description

Product Description

This trilogy of horror comes from the gleefully demented minds of horror masters John Carpenter (Halloween) and Tobe Hooper (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). Three tales are told, each one increasingly terrifying. The first tells the story of a woman being stalked by an axe-weilding maniac. The second is the story of a man who pays the ultimate price for a beautiful head of hair. The final tale shows what it is like to see life through the eyes of a killer.

Special Features

• All new extras including new interviews, commentaries, still galleries and more!

Format: DVD
The Artisan DVD of "John Carpenter's Body Bags" is an edited version perhaps cut for a rebroadcast. It is missing nearly 6 minutes of footage including the memorable cameo from director Wes Craven in the the first story. Avoid this rip-off at all costs!!!

"Body Bags" was an anthology type horror film featuring three stories, 2 by John Carpenter and the third by Tobe Hooper. It originally aired on the Showtime movie channel in the early 90s.
Carpenter rarely directed TV films due to creative restrictions and the fact it prevented him from using his favored 2.35:1 aspect ratio however since "Body Bags" was broadcast on a movie channel, he never had to worry about content (though it was unfortunately filmed with 1.33:1 in mind.)
Sadly the DVD is no longer available BUT there is still hope! "Body Bags" is now owned by Lions Gate Entertainment and you can write to them and ask that they re-release it on DVD!

perfect friday night flick March 12 2009
By Mr. P. P. Royce - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
the first story is basically halloween in a petrol station, or if you are american (gas station, guaranteed to scare you witless,the best of the stories,

the second story is way funny! youll laugh youre hair off! ha ha ha ha!!!! a bit of light refreshment after the sheer terror of the first story.

the third story, gets a bit more creepy, about an eye transplant, but i dont think its scary enough! mind you the flashbacks to someone elses vision are good,

all in all the best part of this film is the first 30 mins!!!! very enjoyable film!

Body Bags is essential! Aug. 25 2000
By "infernal_ritual" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
These 3 mini stories in Body Bags absolutely rule! I have seen this 2 times, and I can't wait to see this again.. The 1st story is about this young lady that works graveyard shift in a rather obscure gas-station.. She gets scared over any little thing.. But towards the end things start to get pretty good, with this homocidal maniac stalks her.. 2nd story was pretty bizarre and somewhat boring to say the least, this is my least fave story. It's all about this chubby wubby guy that wants hair, because he is going bald very quickly. Anyway, he becomes very obssessed with this and decides to go see this weird old doctor that uses some kinda miracle to grant him more hair.. Well, to put this story short, just be careful what you wish for, because you might just get it, heh.. 3rd story is probably the best, and most chilling.. This famous baseball player gets in a nasty automobile accident and gets stabbed in his eye, so anyway, they take him to the hospitol, and they give him a brand new eye.. But, this eye is no regular eye... It's from a very very disturbed person to say the least.. Well, I guess I will stop here, go see this, at least rent it, I think you'll like.. Definitely see it at night, though. :-)

A cool horror anthology now blu-ray! Nov. 27 2013
By John Lindsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
The Coroner (John Carpenter) tells us 3 stories of the fates of 3 dead people he was observing in the morgue as our first story "The Gas Station" deals with a young woman who just got her first night at duty working at a gas station as it turns out to be a night of terror when a maniacal madman is after her including killing off some of the costumers. In "Hair" a balding man (Stacey Keach) wants to get new hair as he goes to a new clinic ran by a doctor (David Warner) who grants him his wish but it doesn't turn out what he expects later and finally in "Eye" a baseball player (Mark Hamil) gets his eye injured in an accident yet goes under an experiment to go through an eye transplant as it becomes a complete success, however the eye belonged on a murderer as he gets bizarre visions.

An enjoyable horror anthology produced by John Carpenter with 2 stories directed by him and one by Tobe Hooper of Poltergeist and Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame. The film stars David Noughton, Sheena Easton, Wes Craven, Tom Arnold, Deborah Harry, Twiggy, Tobe Hooper and Roger Corman. This movie has a couple of interesting stories yet the first one is a slasher kind of story you normally see yet i dug the Haddonfield reference which was the name of the hometown in Carpenter's Halloween and there is some gruesome gore here and decent performances mainly by Stacey who is superb yet Carpenter isn't a very good actor despite he is the host of this collection of stories.

Scream Factory does it again with their hit line of DVDs and blu-rays in this blu-ray/DVD combo that has finally the UNCUT version. It has extras like commentaries, featurette and trailer, Scream made another winner.

Three stories to horrify you. Sept. 17 2003
By James McDonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format: VHS Tape
John Carpenter (the master of Halloween [1978]) who plays a coroner tells you a new story. A woman starts her first night as a gas station cashier. She is all alone. One customer she meets is David Naughton (American Werewolf in London Special Edition) whose character was born in Haddonfield (Yes, the one in HALLOWEEN) where this story is set. Later a homeless man asks for the key to the bathroom. But the woman mistakenly forgot the key inside her booth. More suspense. Later she finds the homeless man murdered. More suspense. There is a killer at the gas station. She thought she was alone. But that's not all. John Carpenter will have two more stories to show you. The second story stars Stacy keach and Sheena Easton. Keach is a middle-aged man who is upset that he is going bald, just has thin hair. He tries everything with no success. Then he goes to a professional hair company. The third story stars Mark Hamill and Twiggy.
