Watch Carnivore - Alternative Versions.
Version reviewed: 'Key DVD' distributed by 20th Century Fox, 2002, 80
My recommendation rating OF THE FILM ONLY: 8 out of 10.
Recommendation rating for this version: 2 out of 10
Let's get the bad news out of the way first, then I'll explain my high
rating of the film. The DVD box art says that Carnivore is a widescreen
presentation that is 'digitally mastered'. The film is NOT in
widescreen, and 'digital mastering' can only mean that either the
master exists on some kind of digital medium, or worse, that the film
was 'mastered to digital' in the sense that DVDs were made from the
master (obviously, since the product is a DVD).
The transfer is one of the poorer ones that I've seen (unfortunately it
isn't the worst). It is extremely grainy (it looks like it was recorded
from a VHS tape that had been rented about 300 times in the mid-80s,
and then stored in a mildew-filled basement for 10 years), The sound
has a lot of hiss and was equalized with far too much bass--you have to
crank up the treble, crank up the volume, and you still can't hear
dialogue in some scenes. I don't know what aspect ratio directors F.
Joseph Kurtz and Kenneth Mader filmed in, but the framing suggests that
it _wasn't_ filmed in 'full-screen' (1.33 : 1), which is the aspect
ratio on this disc.
Additional bad news is that the box art also promises a director
commentary, a featurette called 'Carnivore Kills!', a trailer, and
optional Spanish subtitles. None of these are on the disc. Instead, the
disc has two menu options. One for 'Play Movie' and one for 'Scene
Selection'--which gives you access to only eight chapter markings. This
is either a serious case of false advertising or an equally serious
screw-up on the manufacturing end. And in both cases, it would probably
be best for everyone to send their copies of the DVD back to 20th
Century Fox and demand a refund plus a free copy of the DVD when the
corrections are made. Even if some of the problems (such as the sound)
are rooted in the source material, these can be fairly easily rectified
in a moderately-equipped recording/engineering studio, especially with
a distributor like 20th Century Fox.
And why might you want a copy of the DVD in anamorphic widescreen with
remastered sound, a director's commentary, and other special features?
Because this is a very fun and entertaining little horror film. At
least if you have a taste for camp, and you're not one of those
philosophically-challenged folks who conflates 'horror' and 'scary'.
Carnivore is more likely to be enjoyed by someone who thinks that
Killer Klowns from Outer Space is a masterpiece. Someone who thinks
that two of the most underrated films of the 70s are Daddy's Deadly
Darling and Carnival of Blood. Someone who has actually memorized a
number of lines from Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. and is proud of it.
Someone who thinks that one of the biggest tragedies in filmdom is that
Frank Henenlotter has only directed five films since 1982 (and none
since 1992). If you have no idea what I'm talking about, and you're
looking for scares only, do yourself a favor and pass this one up for
Carnivore is one of those 'genetic experiments gone wild' films, with
touches of the X-Files and an 80's slasher flick mixed into the stew.
Yes, it has narration by a woman with a heavy Midwestern accent who is
obviously reading. It has (sometimes intentionally) ridiculous
performances. The monster is obviously a guy in a suit. For long
periods of time, everything in the film is blue. However, as difficult
as this may be for some people to understand, all of these elements are
assets in a film like this, especially because it's obvious that Mader
and Kurtz harbor no delusions that they're making something in the vein
of Gone With The Wind. Instead, Carnivore plays like an impeccable,
hilarious spoof of its influences, sometimes approaching a spoof of a
spoof, and at the same time seems like a lost horror gem from 1985 (its
authenticity in that respect is incredible). It pokes fun at the
clichés and conventions, and yet embraces them at the same time--a feat
only serious fans of the relevant eras of horror could achieve. There
are serious aspects. There is plenty of tension. Some of the blue shots
(and some others) are beautiful. The gore effects are well-done and
well-shot. The sets are excellent, and even more impressive when you
realize they were built in the basement of the director's rented house.
It is clear that Carnivore is a low-budget affair, but the artistry and
dedication apparent enables it to transcend any budgetary limitations.
But please, give us a release on DVD that does the film justice! This
would have been a perfect candidate for Troma, Lucky 13/Program Power,
Something Weird, or anyone comparable. But the Key Video/20th Century
Fox edition is horrible.
