"Dismembered" has a genuinely creepy story idea and a wonderfully fun cast that manages to rise above a sometimes lame script. Unfortunately, the fine cast and creepy story is ruined by the HORRIBLE transfer to DVD! To be perfectly blunt, the transfer looks like it was taken from an extremely poor analog signal off of someone's dying television set. Many of the scenes had lines and what appeared to be signal interference running through them. This made it very difficult to see what was going on. For a movie filmed in 2003, there is absolutely NO EXCUSE for a transfer this horrendous. I thought that perhaps I had purchased a defective copy, so I exchanged it twice more with the same pathetic results. If this film ever does air on satellite, I'll burn it to disc myself and throw the official copy in the trash where it belongs. The distributor of the official release should be embarrassed and ashamed for putting out such a poor quality DVD! The basic storyline and the cast rate a 7, but the DVD transfer gets a 0 and an F- to drop my vote down to a 3.
