Scream Factory unzips John Carpenter's BODY BAGS (review)

John Carpenter's and Tobe Hooper's nineties Showtime anthology BODY BAGS gets a high definition resurrection - in its uncut, unrated version - in Scream Factory's special edition with all brand new extras.  Carpenter helms the first two stories in which a gas station attendant on her first night encounters a series of weirdos (one of which might be a serial killer) and the story of a man (Stacey Keach) resorting to an unusual miracle hair-growth treatment that gives his scalp a life of its own.  Tobe Hooper directs the third story in which a ball player (Mark Hamill) loses an eye in a car accident and gets an experimental transplant from a donor whose memories are still very much present in the eye.  Robert Carradine, David Warner, and Twiggy also star.
