With A Kidnapper):
The Films of Frederick R. Friedel
B Sound: B Extras: B Films: C+
brings us for the first time ever restored in high definition, the
of Frederick R. Friedel.
If you're a fan of grindhouse-era type films then you definitely
want to check these out. Creatively shot on film in North Carolina
in the 1970's, the films were presumed lost for quite some time and
seen mostly only in drive-ins. Thanks to Severin, they have been
fully restored in 2K high definition and look great on disc with
incredible extras and the bonus audio soundtrack!
(1974, which sported a really good ad campaign at the time), depraved
killers on the run hold a young woman and her invalid grandfather
hostage in an isolated farmhouse. In Kidnapped
(1976), the teenage daughter of a wealthy family forms a perverse
relationship with her abductor. Also included is Bloody
Friedel's recut of the two features as one film is also an
interesting bonus for this release.
from the original negatives in 1.85 X 1 from 2K high definition
upgrades and English 2.0 audio tracks, the films look better than
ever before on Blu-ray disc; a great restoration here done by Severin
as usual. Two more orphan films saved.
