Tammy and the T-Rex

Review Date January 9th, 2020 by
Overview -

Denise Richard and Pail Walker in the roles that would define their careers - Tammy and the T-Rex - a tragic romance brought to vivid emotional life with state of the art visual effects and a parade of impressive performances. This 90s cult classic is so bad it's good - but may not be everyone's flavor of cinematic schlock. Vinegar Syndrome arrives on Blu-ray in terrific form with a solid video presentation, great audio, and packed with a bunch of great bonus features including the original PG-13 cut in SD! If you love your classics cult - this T-Rex is worth chomping on. Highly Recommended

Video Review

4.5 Stars out of 5

After a fresh new 4K scan and restoration of the original 35mm negative, Vinegar Syndrome crashes the Blu-ray party with one hell of a 1080p 1.85:1 transfer! Considering the film, it's low budget properties, and its age I wasn't expecting much but the image instantly pops off the screen. Fine film grain is apparent throughout giving the film a rich film-like appearance. Details are fantastic allowing facial features, costuming, and our titular T-Rex plenty of room to shine. There are some optical effects of the T-Rex running that don't really come together showcasing the film's budgetary constraints. Thankfully these moments are brief and are a baked-in feature. For the most part, black levels are on point and inky but there are a couple of places where blacks appeared a bit thick and bordered on crush. Whites are bright without blooming colors offer plenty of primary pop. All around a damn impressive transfer.
