It's on YT here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-DS1g_uDPI

Despite my experience thus far with Mr Rebane, I will check it out on your rec, Frankie!

With Peter Cushing in top form ( is he ever not? ) this best of the Karnstein trilogy also uses the twins as a proper plot device rather than just a novelty.
It all ends up in a surprisingly gory climax.
This is another terrific looking Blu ray from Network.
Easily one of my favourites!

Ahh! I see. Quite liked them TBH. I have a bit of an ecletic taste from grindhouse to arthouse which has only really developed over the past few years so a lot of stuff I either haven't seen or have seen years ago and never had an appreciation for. Should see my shelves! I've got Eureka MOC and BFI's sharing with the likes of Russ Meyer, Jess Franco and Michael Bay

Devil Times Five (1974)


A fairly effective and creepy 'killer kids' film, Devil Times Five deals with 5 sociopathic children who escape their psychiatric transportation and end up being taken in by some unwitting people who are holidaying nearby.

The children are able to lure the adults into a false sense of security with their feigned sweet and innocent behaviour before the film takes a darker turn and the crazed kids start dispatching their contemporaries in various creative and brutal fashions, but without losing their lighthearted and playful air, which makes it all the more disturbing and compelling.

The holidaying adults certainly have their own particular issues too, to the extent that when watching them perish at the hands of the psychotic children, you can't help but feel less than sorry for some of them.

Certainly a stand-out film in this particular sub-genre, Devil Times Five is a entertaining oddity that's worth checking out.

The 'Burbs - 1989;

Compliments of Arrow in the UK. Not a bad movie but not a great one either. Not one of the better transfers from Arrow, but certainly watchable IMO. Didn't check out any of the extras, but I would be interested in watching the feature length documentary on the making of the movie. Love that stuff! At times it felt like a HOUSE movie with Joe Dante directing and not Steve Miner. Enjoyed Hanks and Fisher's performance. And when was the last time you watched an 80s movie that didn't feature, at the very least, a cameo by Corey Feldman?

Yes it is, it's a James White restoration. Your issue is with the look of the film itself due to film stock and artistic intent.

Man, do you have a secret stash or something? Or maybe my searches are a little unimaginative... either way, kudos and props for bringing me this long sought after schnitzel, which I may taste tonight... thanks once again. Oh, and ditto re Devilx5.

I thought it was a brilliant picture from a new transfer, approved by Joe Dante. The contrast levels and colour balance are exceptional.

No worries - enjoy!

I will be sampling it too at some point in the not-so-distant future
