Zip yourself in tight!




body bags 1993A great horror movie from the 90s with vertebrate stories! The "Body Bags" directed by the great John Carpenter and Tobe Hooper stunner is a pleasant surprise mini in the first half of this decade that thrilled them more friends of the scene. From the best movies in modular style with many familiar names in the cast, both actors and directors from, gives us a pleasant enenintalepto which successfully combined the horror and comedy without hyperbole and fanfare. Central Narrator is himself a … John Carpenter in role coroner! With plenty of light-hearted approach examines various corpses in a morgue and introduces us to each story, lifting and placing of spectators.

In the first story (The Gas Station) Watch night adventure of a student who gets a job in a gas station and during first night shift attacked by an insane killer.

In the second story (Hair) we see the agonizing effort of a guy to find a solution for the early karafla of approaching a strange company that advertises a new radical product for hair show. After using the product, the feisty protagonist will feel due to its rich long wool of grew in just one day! Soon, however, will prove that the new hair is not as innocent as they seem …

In the third story (Eye) a baseball player loses his eye after a traffic accident and replaces it with the eye of an unidentified donor. But gradually his new eye becomes responsible for many horrific hallucinations and sees images during the day and as a result makes him the body dangerous … mainly for his wife which masquerades as the former model Twiggy. You see … the donor was not-so-innocent creature …

Horror Trivia

In the film there are cameo appearances three major filmmakers in the field of horror: Tobe Hooper's as one of the workers at the morgue, the Wes Craven as one of night visitors in the first story and Sam Raimi as. .. corpse also in first story.

All stories have something to say with each retains its distinctive character. The first – and in my opinion the best – moving on familiar slasher patterns, but it's also dark, terrifying and ejected from the successful succession of events. For example, several guests arriving one by one at the gas station in the middle of the night, they create the Viewer ' concern did the killer is that? ". In contrast, in the second the climate is much more lightweight but the comic and ironic elements of offer a distinct sweetness. The completely unpredictable and paranoid finale is the ideal centrepiece. The third, and rather more tenuous (but not indifferent), has some steep frightening scenes that agitate, especially the horrific images that sees the protagonist after the transplant eye.

Whole Body Bags standing at high levels and for the most part is apolaystikotato. Can some people be expecting more judging by the strong cast and Director names, but what they gave us is not achieved easily, especially on vertebrate horror movies.
