The remastered DVD rocks
31 August 2009 | by moviemakers1000See all my reviews

I recently got a chance to check out the new DVD version of this old title, "Psycho Scarecrow" and I was amazed. The film was digitally remastered and looks great. It has new footage, CGI effects, and the sound is way better. The intro is different and there is a cool fight scene where this house blows up. The gore stuff is better too. They made blood squirt out when people get axed, way gross. It's strange, because it's the same movie but looks and sounds better. I don't know why, but the VHS version sucks compared to this one, it's grainy and the sound it bad, sort of like a low budget porno. I don't know what the film-makers did? But, they made it better. The DVD has good bonus features too, CGI effects and photos. VHS bad, DVD good, The remasterer's should sell movie wax. "Miracle-Movie-Wax.", You too can turn B-movies into A minus movies.
