RE­LEASED OUT NOW! 1983 | 18 | Blu-ray

What if Christo­pher Lee’s corpse was stolen by fans, then he came back to life? Oh, and he was a mur­derer? Also ti­tled The Hor­ror Star, this slasher-era prod­uct’s nos­tal­gic for an older era. It has some neat ideas, like an au­to­mated, booby-trapped mau­soleum. DOP Joel King (cam­era­man on Car­rie) makes it look at­trac­tive. And star Ferdy Mayne serves up de­li­cious ham. But a lack of in­ter­nal logic means none of it re­ally hangs to­gether.
