A mid 80's women revenge double feature from Scream Factory
Reviewed in the United States on November 23, 2018
Scream Factory pairs up the women revenge films "Naked Vengeance" (1985) & "Vendetta" (1986) for a double feature bluray of exploitation sleaze. The former is a blatant ripoff of the original "I Spit On Your Grave" while the latter is a nice twist on the women in prison genre in which a woman purposely gets committed to a particular prison to get revenge on the inmates who murdered her sister. While neither film is particularly good, for fans of mid 80's sleaze this release comes highly recommended. It should be mentioned that the version of "Naked Vengeance" contained on this release is the full 97 minute uncut version.
Both films which were staples of the 80's VHS scene make their high definition debut by Scream Factory sharing a dual layer blu-ray. Each film features a new 2K scan from original film elements and to my eyes look great. Presented in their original 1.85:1 aspect ratios utilizing the AVC codec and featuring robust bit rates in the low to mid 30's, colors and detail are excellent along with natural looking contrast and black levels. Film grain is present without ever being obtrusive. Scream Factory could have easily just slapped ancient HD masters on this release so the fact they went to the effort to do new 2K transfers for each film shows their dedication to going the extra mile whenever they can with their releases for fans. Sound for both is in 2 channel lossless audio. English subtitles are included for the hearing impaired. Trailers for both films are the only extras.
Scream Factory delivers another great genre bluray double feature with this particular release. Fans of 80's sleaze and women revenge films should not hesitate picking it up.
