Confidential, The Black Dahlia) as he traces the history of Bob Berdella’s sordid crimes with interviews of Bryson, gruesome reenactments, and disturbing musical numbers.

Transparent Keep Case
Chapters: 18



There was a DVD of Bazaar Bizarre that came out in May of 2006 that is probably the exact same, poor, letterboxed transfer although this 'new' DVD has VoB files from September 2010.

So, dual-layered but non-anamorphic and pretty weak looking all around. The captures should tell the story - all you need to know. It, at least, does appear to be progressive. Audio is unremarkable but close, I'll wager, to the way it was produced. 'Modest' would be understating the ineffectual appearance.

Extras are a litany of amateurish video spots - none really achieving any status of worthiness - but for those feeling the need to pay some penance for past bad deeds there are over 30-minutes of this.

I don't have much positive to say about the film nor the pitiful transfer.  I can however, say with extreme confidence, that we do NOT recommend.
