Gregory Horror Show The Guest From Hell

 

Picture: C+ Sound: B- Extras: D Shorts: D

 

 

When we last looked at The Gregory Horror Show, we discussed the repetitious point-of-view Horror gimmick show it was and thought that would be the end of it. However, Geneon is happy enough with the performance of the first DVD to continue issuing more. The appropriately titled The Guest From Hell is actually worse than the original set of installments on the first DVD.

 

I figured if they were going to continue, they would come up with a new gimmick, but we get more of the same CG silliness that we could all do without. You would think they would try something new, but it is one of the biggest run-on series of anything we have ever seen. This runs 73 minutes over 13 mini-installments and any way you cut it, it is a disaster. Young children should not watch this either, then neither should adults.

 

The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo with some Pro Logic surrounds is the strongest feature of this DVD by default, also being the most modern thing about the whole presentation. Extras include previews for three more Geneon DVD titles, four bonus episodes of more ultimately annoying and pointless installments of a sister set of shorts with some of the same characters called The Bloody Carte and a plug for action figures from the main show that shows one of them and a website for more information. You may be curious to see it once, but you will be bored afterwards in obtaining either DVD, which is a remarkable waste of time. See the original review for more information.
