... in Beautiful Hi-Definition! (as quoted on the cover)
No words could possibly be further from the truth then that statement there.
I will be very clear up front that my extremely low rating (2 stars is being very generous, considering my level of disappointment) for this review is due almost entirely for the extremely poor quality of this video port on Bluray, it looked like a very grainy pirated re-dub from VHS to VCD to a zoomed in then up-converted to Bluray. Nothing was done to clean up the picture or sound quality at all.
With that being said, about the movies, I'm sure those looking at/considering it are not expecting an Academy Award Winning movie, but your classic cheezeball 80's flick, which it will live up to your expectations. I personally bought this movie entirely for Jekyll and Hyde Together Again (this page has a typeo 'Jeckyll') as it was strangely cheaper to buy both these on Bluray then either of them in stand alone DVD version. (I really wonder if the DVD quality looks better or what)
For some reason, Jekyll and Hyde Together Again (1982) cracked me up and the performance by Mark Blankfield was well done and had some good 80's slapstick in it as well. Dr. Daniel Jekyll (Mark Blankfield) is a gifted doctor who was suppose to perform a full body transplant on Hubert Howes (parody of Howard Hughes) but decides he would rather dedicate his talents to research and replace the need for surgery with drugs by coming up with a way to release mans animal instinct for survival, which when he passes out due to exhaustion, accidentally sniffs his own experimental drugs and turns in to a sex crazed Hyde and desires a girl named Ivy (Krista Errickson). He now finds himself in a battle of wills between his career and the woman he is suppose to marry (Bess Armstrong as Mary Carew) and his new alter ego who seems more in control.
* Some keen fans may also pick out Cassandra Peterson (Elvira) as the Busty Nurse.
Since this was a Double feature it also contains Student Bodies (1981) which is hyped as 'The Worlds First Comedy Horror Movie' which I'm not sure if that's true or not but you can definitely see some of the influence/parodies in Scary Movie from this one. I didn't quite care for this one as much and it is far from being a horror by any stretch of the imagination and the psycho killer 'The Breather' (Jerry Belson) was incredibly annoying I found personally and really drew away from trying to enjoy the way over the top corniness of the movie.
I can maybe see this movie as somewhat having a cult following fan base, especially those who are fans of the Airplane style spoofs, but was far off pace from cult classics like 'The Kentucky Fried Movie' (1977) and 'Amazon Women On The Moon' (1987), but for me personally I enjoyed Jekyll and Hyde Together Again much more, but since both of these together on Bluray were cheaper then either individually (at least it was when I ordered it) it's not a bad deal for the pair with the major exception of the poor video and sound quality as mentioned earlier.
