Awesome. Not a great film but some amazing practical effects in that one.

Default Body Melt (1993 - Umbrella - Ozploitation)

The gruesome Ozploitation horror comedy Body Melt is coming from Umbrella in December. I've not seen it, but the trailer makes it seem like The Incredible Melting Man in Ramsay Street (complete with Ian Smith aka Harold Bishop).

Glad you dig it, mate - was a fun one to put together. Tried to get a few nods from throughout the film into the goop.

BTW - we got our hands on a BUNCH of cool props etc to work with for the gallery here, so you'll be able to check out some of the prop labels etc, along with the original pitch for funding (the project was originally a 4-story anthology called 'Horrorality' that was reworked into the one film) and the storyboard is ****ing MASSIVE (over 400 slides worth).

And that's not including the remaster and the audio that Philip reworked to get it the way he originally intended it.

Cheers
Si

Absolutely love Body Melt! Rented it a bunch on VHS back in the day. A new 4K scan will do wonders for the gory effects!

As a whole, I didn't find it amazing. Buuuuut, it's so much fun, with amazing gore effects and a cool score that I will absolutely pick this up without a doubt.

Keep up the Ozploitation range guys, and I promise you I will pick up every one without doubt!

What aspect ratio is this 4K remaster in? On the Aussie DVD, the aspect ratio is in 1.66:1, even though the packaging says 1.85:1.
Criterion is nice,
Arrow is too.
Mention Echo Bridge,
Well, no one will miss you.

I have a copy. Haven't checked out the film's picture quality yet, although you'll notice a very VHS quality menu screen which is fun.

Don't forget to pay attention to the wording: 4K scan of what exactly? Remember Road Games??

Just got my copy - the back of the Blu-ray says 1.77:1 and that's correct.

So true. I have not bought the local ROAD GAMES for that reason.

I sent a PM to Simon about this question a few weeks ago, and he said it was from an interpositive.
