4.0 out of 5 stars This Unrated Version Should Be A Part of Your Collection March 12 2011
By Dayna Newman/Slasher Diva - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The Dorm that Dripped Blood also known as Pranks is a cookie cutter slasher from the early 80's, 1982 to be exact.It doesn't offer us anything new or special.
It's cheese appeal isn't even that sticky.

That being said I still like this movie because It's a retro Slasher flick and I love retro slashers,I love everything about them,the formula,the cliches. One of the cliches being the last girl standing battling it out with the maniac in a cat and mouse, life and death power struggle,this is a staple in most of the post Halloween slashers and this one is no exception.

The lead actress is probably the most unattractive heroine in Slasher film history..(Laurie Lipinski).. "forgive me,if you read this"..This Blue Ray/DVD combo is the unrated version so it is quite a bit better than "Pranks" which is the same film with a different title,it was released on DVD in 2003.

There are a few good kills in this version but the acting left quite a bit to be desired.It was after all Developed by a group of UCLA students on a ridiculously small budget..I'm sure Daphne Zuniga best known from Melrose Place who also starred in another 80`s slasher 'The Initiation' winces every time she thinks about her role in this movie.

She only has about 10 minutes of camera time.
If you're a Die hard retro slasher lover pick it up because again it's everything we have come to love and expect from our stalk and slash fests.There is supposed to be footage in this that wasn't included in the original VHS version..So that's a big plus.I'm buying this when it hits the shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Slasher from the 80s March 4 2013
By Cagneyfan67 - Published on Amazon.com

I've seen a lot of slashers especially from the Golden Era. I consider this to be very underrated and one of the forgotten gems. I thought the acting was pretty good. It had great suspense and build. I really liked the ending. This movie stands out in a long line of forgettable slashers. I'd rank it on the level of House on Sorority Row. That is another one to check out. I was bummed this movie never came to regular dvd as I don't own a blu ray player. I own a lot of slasher movies and this is one I frequently rewatch. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good Blu-ray Oct. 23 2011
By Christopher D. Jacobson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This HD transfer seems to have received a whole unholy hell load of flak. I went into it expecting not a whole lot, but I came out of it pleasantly surprised and being reminded once again that I shouldn't listen to the reviews unless they're written by people I really trust to know their stuff (and even then sometimes you gotta see things for yourself to decide). Could this film look better? If the original camera negative (OCN) could be found. This Blu-ray was transferred from a 35mm interpositive (IP)--that is, the 16mm OCN was blown up to a 35mm negative which was then used for the IP. What we get is a source two generations removed from the OCN, with the audio taken from an analog video master, so there are flaws, but to anyone's knowledge these are the best elements for the picture and sound that currently exist. However, it was cleaned up rather well and is a pleasing transfer with healthy, nondistracting grain. (Unless, of course, you're a grain hater--in which case, why are you watching movies shot on film??? The grain MAKES UP the image, and to scrub that away means to eliminate a certain amount of critical picture detail along with it.) Black levels can look a bit light at times, while most times being richly dark and appropriate. Color reproduction is good, and it's nice to have a film in its native 1.66:1 aspect ratio rather than cropping it for 16:9 (1.78:1), or worse, 1.85:1 (which is common practice in a lot of circles and really cramps the headroom and ruins the photography on a lot of releases). I didn't notice any kind of digital artifacting and the like.

The film itself is a fun ride and recommended for any fans of '80s slasher flicks. There are a lot of cliches here that come with the genre, but there are some unique twists and the movie overall is just a whole lot of fun, and one I personally think is acted real well. Naysayers of leading actress Laura Lapinski can take a flying leap because I think she's incredibly gorgeous, a unique beauty. Props to this film for not having buxom bimbo babes and loads of nudity, despite being a slasher (though there is one such gratuitous shot, which I'll admit I loved). It's not quite as smart and artistic as "The Prowler", but it's a breath of fresh air amidst the immense slew of cash-in slasher films. For a student film, this is very well made. INCREDIBLY well made, actually.

The film is uncut, too! There's a great reason to buy it. To my knowledge this is the only uncut version of the film in the States, and even if you don't yet have a Blu-ray player, it comes with a DVD plus your future-proof hi-def copy of the film for when you eventually do splurge on the newer equipment. The two interviews with the composer and special effects artist are very informative and entertaining, and the two trailers--one for "The Dorm That Dripped Blood" and the other for its retitle, "Pranks"--are in full HD glory.

Chalk one up to the Blu-ray horror collection. For high definition enthusiasts, this one's sure to please.

An impressive package overall. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable 80's slasher flick! Oct. 15 2011
By John Lindsey - Published on Amazon.com
Christmas Break has begun at a town university, 4 friends are preparing to tear down an old dorm that hasn't been used for a while. A homicidal maniac is killing them with their pals one by bloody one with anyone he can get his hands on.

Gory and enjoyable 80's slasher flick that co-stars Spaceballs actress Daphne Zuniga, sure there is little much plot in this movie but what sells this one is the cool kill sequences. There's bloody violence from drillings to industrial steaming, the film is a bit slow at times and too much like "Halloween" and "Black Christmas" at times but the film works nicely for slasher fans.

This Blu-Ray/DVD Combo has alright picture and fair sound despite it's age and the extras include the film presented in it's uncensored director's cut, audio commentary, isolated score, interviews and trailers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic release of a classic slasher. Aug. 23 2011
By Ryan Kramarz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
For many years 'The Dorm That Dripped Blood' aka 'Pranks' was unavailable on DVD, let alone Blu Ray, and it was quite difficult to get one's hands on a decent copy. Thanks to Synapse you can now get not only a legitimate copy of the film, but in an excellent release as well!! The picture and audio are restored substantially, you get a DVD and Blu Ray copy, special features, and great packaging. If you have ever shown interest in this film or are a slasher fan in the slightest, i highly recommend this release.
