Slime City (1989)/Slime City Massacre (2010/Camp Motion Pictures Double Feature Blu-ray)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: B Films: C

Independent Filmmaker Gregory Lamberson's 1989 horror film Slime City lands on Blu-ray disc paired with its 2010 sequel, Slime City Massacre. While the production budget may not rival a Hollywood blockbuster, these films are pretty fun to watch and will be sure to attract crowds of The Blob or various zombie films. The films star Debbie Rochon, Craig Sabin, Jennifer Bihl, Kealan Patrick Burke, Roy Frumkes, and an appearance by Lloyd Kaufman himself... somewhere.

Slime City (1989) - In a run-down apartment building in NYC, a student stumbles across the remains of a cult and transforms into a murderous, slime-dripping monster... much to the dismay of those around him.

Slime City Massacre (2010) - A greedy real estate tycoon sends mercenaries into a bombed out slime city to destroy the homeless and help even out the numbers. They stumble across the remains of a cult of hideous, oozing slime creatures, and spark an all-out war for control of the slimed territory. Need we say more?

Both films are presented in 1080p high definition with widescreen aspect ratios of 1.77:1 (City) and 1.85:1 (Massacre) and look decent for being low budget productions. Though the sound isn't listed online or on the disc, it is lossy Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo sound mixes on both films that aren't anything to write home about, but not glaringly awful either. However, despite the low budgets, why not lossless PCM sound at least?

While the films aren't as charming as the C.H.U.D. films, the Slime City films are pretty fun to watch, if for no other reason than it shows that the filmmakers had some compassion for the projects when they made them.
