This is essentially Twilight Zone or Outer Limits with a rock angle. There are four stories,each a mild horror tale. The format might be rather limiting, though there are some clever ideas.“Disco Inferno,” for instance, posits what hell would be like for headbangers. That’s a cutenotion, but is hard to sustain, even over 22 minutes.
No surprise that the music dominates the soundtrack, though even then it isn’t quite aspowerful as one might thi…g. There are some sound effects given the surround treatment, but notthat many, and they depend on an absence of music to be noticed. There are some missedopportunities too. The moment of a car crash, for example, is flubbed, though the aftermath(crickets in the night) is very well done.
The picture is fullscreen (this is TV after all, widescreen credits notwithstanding). This is agood transfer, with none of the grain that often seems to plague (for some reason) TV transfers.The colours are good, with strong contrasts, and the night scenes are particularly good (the cheapnature of the production is a bit more evident in the day exterior shots, but that is not the DVD’sfault).
None, and the menu is basic.
Hardly frightening, and whether the hook is neat or irritating will depend on the viewer.Many will likely find it a little of both.
