Thread: Mansion of the Doomed

    Mansion of the Doomed

    When I rented this movie on VHS some years back, the Bingo VHS was rated PG and 86 minutes. IMDb says rated R and 89 minutes. Tubi has a version that's 103 minutes. Does anyone know why? Is Tubi's print an expanded version?

    No idea why, but I’m holding out for Full Moon’s bd…

    I picked up the dvd way back in the 00's. Full frame and depressing as hell. Watched it once and remember little about it except that it wasn't much fun.

    Gary, would you mind telling me the running time of the DVD? Thank you. I'm beginning to suspect that Tubi's version is slowed down somehow.

    Wish I could help you out on that, James. I dumped the dvd shortly after I watched it and don't recall the running time (although it felt like forever).

    Thought I had a copy of it and finally found it. My copy came from 905 Entertainment (think that was Trinity and was somehow associated with MCA). Anyway, it's 84:29 minutes long.

    Thanks guys. I think someone slowed this film down. I have no idea how or why.

    I just checked my Full Moon disc. Despite a cover that claims 88 minutes, actual run time is 1:22: 05, and it looks like a VHS rip. God bless Charles, don't ever change.

    Yeah, I went to check it out on Tubi (because I actually really like this flick), but you're right, James, the speed has been horribly reduced. I started watching it and noticed everything moving in slow motion. Then I skipped through the entirety of the offering and learned it was like that throughout, which accounts for the longer running time. I have no idea what the hell they were thinking when they did this.
    VHS will never die!

    And here's another slowed-down print of a 1970s Charles Band movie. That's two of them I've discovered so far. What is with Full Moon? https://tubitv.com/movies/495960/end...rld?start=true
