Yours truly may be wrong but didn't Craven also direct the '78 TV effort Summer Of Fear starring Linda Blair and issued on pre-cert VHS by Brent Walker video?

I felt sorry for Cillian Murphy as he stumbled through what must be one of the worst scripts every written.

The anti-climactic ending was the final nail in the coffin of this dull and forgettable film.
The central idea was a very good one, but a script needs more than just a good idea, it has to hold the attention for 90+ minutes. Many films have good ideas that are poorly written.

I decided to cast a sympathy vote for hills have eyes 2 as i don't think there's a lot of love for it out there. watched it as a kid, before the original, and loved it! but i can understand why people haven't taken to it. loved the original vhs artwork. almost voted for chiller as it's a fave too but was surprised no-one picked it! only seen it twice but really enjoyed it! loved nightmare on elm street, last house, people under the stairs, scream 1 & 4 too, though!

Deadly Blessing - underrated in my opinion. Love some of the imagery in this one.
People Under The Stairs

I Believe that Summer of Fear was AKA Stranger in Our House.

I Voted for Stranger in Our House, Deadly Friend, Nightmare on Elm St, Cursed, Red Eye and Hills have Eyes part 2. - i too prefer the original movies...

I Really didn't care for Deadly Blessing at all when i watched it... maybe i wasn't in the right mood for it at the time, - the same goes for Serpent and the Rainbow... don't think i even finished that one... maybe i should try again sometime. i did enjoy The People Under The Stairs, however.

I'm quite a fan of craven, i watched Last House on The Left (original) the other night and enjoyed it, but it's not one of my favorites... i know they really shouldn't be compared... (but i can't help it).... i found I Spit On Your Grave to be a superior movie... the comedy aspect of Last House didn't appeal to me at all. Still a great movie tho...

Totally agree about that. I also find it oddly jarring and even if this is the intention it's to the detriment to the film.

I watched I Walked With a Zombie recently and I wanted to see Serpent and the Rainbow again - anyone know if the UK Universal DVD is worth a shot ?

That's the one I have, bought it years ago for a few quid so I expect it to be really cheap nowadays, nothing in way of extras mind but the print looks good to me

That's good enough for me Rik, thanks ! I always find Bill Pullman a bit of a damp squib but I remember really enjoying Craven's film. That whole subject of voodoo is fascinating...

Thank for that Vic, this is one cut I could live with, you've seen one cockfight, you've seen 'em all...
