Horror makes a comeback... hopefully...
18 October 2004 | by (Bronx, NY) – See all my reviews

I ordered this DVD on faith. Savini has seriously let me down in recent years (Vicious and his cameo in the remake of DOTD to name a few things) ... but good news to all you horror/Savini fans out there... SAVINI IS BACK!!!

The concept of "Chill Factor" was fascinating to me, an unrated anthology series with no one to answer to besides the gore-lord Tom Savini. I forgave his previously mentioned sins, and decided to buy the DVD.

"House Call," the first episode, appears to herald something special. Good acting (atleast from the older actor), a very clever story, and good production value. The DVD special features are interesting and help add to the value of the DVD.

Overall... I'll give this 8 stars out of 10.

I'm crossing my fingers the quality of the series continues.
