The German DVD released by Best Entertainment in 2004 is listed as and has a running time of 85 mins. However the longer running time is due to a time expansion (meaning the film print was slowed down). It has nothing extra and the content is exactly the same as the US VHS tape with the following two exceptions- The opening title sequence is a little different in the way the credits appear and that it has some added wind sound effect playing in the background (which you can hear was from the film print and not something added as a new sound effect). Also towards the end when the zombies attack, our two main characters are fighting one by a saw mill type building where the zombie gets stabbed with a wooden stake. The US version then shows a far away shot of our two heroes running around to the front of the saw mill building before her leg breaks through a floorboard in the front. The German dvd omits this long shot, so after the zombie is stabbed it cuts to them already in the front of the building a second before her leg goes through the floorboard. See more »
This overdubed, somewhat disjointed horror film is probably more of a late to scene "Omen" rip-off than a zombie film; but if you are in the right mood you may find it creepily effective. There is an excellent scene about a half hour into the film where the old creep grandfather starts laughing at a horrible accident and the kid joins in. The other two don't know what to do, haven't we all been there? The disjointed sound actually may work in the film's favor, though you wonder if you are listening to the same people you are seeing on the screen. So it's hard to fault the performers too much. It's the kind of thing you might have seen at a faraway drive-in or late one night on cable and never quite shook. The Something Weird DVD gives you a chance to live it all again.
