Review wanted: Ravenous

Anybody seen this movie before? It just had a big price drop ($14.99 Canadian)....Just wanted your thoughts.

Thanks in advance!

I bought it sight-unseen from DeepDiscountDVD. I've seen people rave about it on the forum before.

Still waiting on my copy to arrive, should be in tomorrow or early next week.

I loved the film; if you are fond of the humor-horror type of film, you'll like Ravenous...not that it's in the mold of Return of the Living Dead, Evil Dead 2 and so on. It's unique.

This is definitely worth the $11. The picture and sound are very good and as far as extras go, it has 3 commentaries, a trailer and maybe something else - I don't remember too well right now.

Awesome movie, great disc with only one flaw: a nonanamorphic transfer. However, it is 16:9 in R2.

I think it's a great film!

Especially when you consider the problems it took to get the film made.

Here's a couple of reviews. THIRTEEN to be exact!

cheers, MCB

Ravenous is a top-notch film that was sadly overlooked during it's theatrical run. I think the subject matter did a lot to hurt it's commercial prospects and the fact the the original director split may have influenced the studio to chalk it up as a loss and not push it terribly hard. That's a real pity because Antonia Bird, who I'd never heard of before seeing this, does a masterful job, especially after coming onboard just a few a weeks before production started. Also, for anyone who likes good acting, this is a must buy. Several arch actors (among them Guy Pearce, Jeff Jones and Robert Carlyle) get to cut loose and have a high time with some very solid dialogue. FWIW, I highly recommend it. The DVD itself is loaded with extras and is very well put together.

BTW, the music is truly extraordinary. It might be the least mentioned great soundtrack I've ever heard.

Definitely not worth buying! It's an okay movie. But it's not something you'd want to see twice.
