The Zombie Horror Picture Show (Blu-Ray)
Released: 2014, Universal
Reviewer: Celtic Bob
Rob Zombie’s first concert film is a must own.
After watching this Blu-Ray I now want to see a Zombie show more than ever. This guy puts on one hell of a show. Incredible production to say the least. From stage set-up to performance to music it’s all here in one package. The guy is energetic and clearly gives it his all.
Surrounded by some excellent musicians Zombie plays everything you’d want from White Zombie to present, including an excellent cover of Grand Funk's "We're An American Band". Who could ask for more? His stage props are over the top especially the giant stand on ghetto blaster. The video quality is excellent for the most part but at times they use an effect to make it look as though it’s being filmed by an old 80’s VHS camcorder. Pretty cool for those of us that remember old dubbed off bootleg VHS concerts. It does however tend to get a bit old after awhile. The HD video is clear as you’d expect but dark due to the stage lighting. Lots of red and blue lights throughout the show play havoc with the camera’s causing it to look this way.
Musically and audio-wise the mix is great with all instruments accounted for and nothing really buried. Very enjoyable to listen to the surround mix although not a drastic difference from the PCM mix. Both are very well done.
An extremely enjoyable show to watch and one of the best live concert releases of the year. Highly recommended.
