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.
Extras Three commentaries by journos; three interviews; gallery; trailer. Ian Berriman
