Faces of Death (1978) coming to Blu-Ray


This made me chuckle. According to DVD Review, MPI Home Entertainment will be issuing the notorious former video nasty Faces of Death (1978) in the US on Blu-Ray on October 7th. Of all the titles to be announced so far this one is most certainly the oddest. Any one who has had the (mis?)fortune to see this cult classic will know that the film does not exactly lend itself to a high definition transfer, being a collection of short segments of varying visual quality. Having first seen this on an Nth grade bootleg VHS many years ago it will be interesting to see how it fares in HD. However, I can’t exactly say that I am looking forward to seeing a chicken with a severed head dancing around to the tune of ‘Old McDonald had a Farm’ in 1080p high definition.
