Famine Blu Ray Review (Unearthed Films)
Let’s talk about the high definition presentation from Unearthed Films! This 1080p (1.78.1) transfer looks really good especially for it’s lower budget. The school location is a nice & simple set up for the feature. They used every bit to go with it’s dark atmosphere. The production design is cool for this & it creates some fun scenarios. Famine has been released on home video before & this is the best it’s looked so far. I streamed it under it’s Detention Night title a long time ago & this is a major improvement over that. The Dolby Digital 2.0 English track is solid. The dialogue is clean for the most part, all the chaos is elevated, & the music is best part about this particular track. As for extras on the disc, there’s not much here. It has a little over 4 minute “Stills Gallery” featuring all kinds of photos from the shoot & behind the scenes. It has a “Trailer” for the film. It has various Unearthed Films related “Trailers” which includes one of Nicholson’s own films Collar. It’s rare to find a modern slasher that feels like something from the 80s, Famine achieves that with no problem. I can’t wait for the other Nicholson films to be released on blu ray especially the unreleased Gutterballs 2 from years ago. This is available everywhere right now, CHECK IT OUT!!!!
