Deathdream, Bob Clark's chilling, hard-to-find classic is finally available on DVD, thanks to a Grade-A treatment from the genre specialists, Blue Underground. The film itself has been fully restored from a long-lost negative from the original Dead of Night release and transferred into an anamorphic 1.85:1 widescreen image, complete with a respectable Dolby Digital Mono soundtrack. Extras include two commentaries -- one from Clark and the other from screenwriter Alan Ormsby, who also doubled as an uncredited makeup artist on the film. Both tracks are assisted by Blue Underground's own David Gregory and each are engaging and entertaining in their own right. Clark does come off a bit dry at times, but his comments on this and many of his earlier horror films make for a worthwhile listen (along with his teases of genre films to come), while Ormsby seems to have a fun time looking back at this early feature. The writer also figures into the "Tom Savini: The Early Years" featurette, where the famed makeup man talks of his tutelage under Ormsby on both this, his first film, and Deranged, along with his first collaboration with George Romero, Martin. Star Richard Backus appears in an interview segment, where he discusses working with John Marley (fresh off of his Oscar win for The Godfather) and other aspects of the production, including a brilliant closing moment that fans of the film will flip for. Other extras include an "Alternate Opening Titles" segment (under the Deathdream re-release title) and "Extended Ending Sequence" cut from an MPI Media video source, along with the theatrical trailer and a truly definitive poster and stills gallery, featuring posters, pressbooks, video art, and more. With a terrifying foil cover and way-creepy menu design, this disc adds yet another gem to Blue Underground's stable of excellent releases.
