Vigilantes and Cannibals are at the core of this film. When vegetarians start disappearing, a group of friends start a cannibal hunter club. Not to be one upped, the cannibals get proactive and a war ensues between the two rival fractions.
Actually outside of these two fractions trying to eliminate each other. Not much else happens. Sure there are a few vegetarians who are killed and served up as grub. Even though there are people being eaten, this film is never to gory. Also things move along at a snail’s pace. In which the cast of character spew forth inane dialog that quickly becomes annoying. The direction is uninspired and the acting is nonexistent. When all is said and done, while I can appreciate independently made cinema on musicale budgets. This is a mediocre film that even the bravest Cinefiles with find an excruciating chore to sift through.
The Bisbee Cannibal Club is presented in a 4:3 full frame aspect ratio. Colors and flesh tones look accurate. Black levels are at best average and the image tends to look soft.
This release comes with one audio option, a Dolby Digital stereo mix in English. The audio does not fare much better than the transfer. Besides some instances of background noise. The audio often sounds muffled and I had to adjust the volume on numerous occasions.
The back of the DVD case mentions special features (none were included with the DVD I reviewed). Also this film comes with no menu or chapters and on the copy I reviewed for some reason when he film ends, it starts over again. Overall The Bisbee Cannibal Club gets a lackluster DVD release from Chemical Burn Entertainment.
