Disturbing Behavior (Scream Factory Blu-ray)

For some of you Disturbing Behavior is a fun, late 90's teen Horror flick. I get it, but I have got to say that this is not a movie that I enjoy. You love the actor and the hip soundtrack. You love the clean look of the movie as well as the edgy, borderline Sci-Fi cool plot. For those of you who truly love this movie, Scream Factory did a really nice job for you on this release. It's available now and if you want to give it a shot, this would be the way to watch it.

So why don't I like Disturbing Behavior? I don't like the cast. I don't like the pop 90's soundtrack even though some of the songs are quite catchy. The general premise is fine, but I feel like I'd rather watch it in a Twilight Zone episode than in a highly polished modern movie. I'm glad that the focus on teenage Horror brought about a new generation of genre fans, but this was not my high school experience which left me feeling alienated from the picture. I'll give it a shot every so often, but I'm afraid after several viewings I haven't turn yet.

The full extra list is below. The transfer looks good for a modern movie, and the original artwork is used.

For a modern audience who has not seen Disturbing Behavior, I think you'll find it holds up quite well. It's nearly twenty years old, but the basic stereotype for a teens hasn't changed all that much (and I think the 90's are cool again). The general moral of the story is basic Horror fodder and the cast is like watching something out of the Disney channels modern lineup all grown up. Scream Factory did a proper release for the fans, and that's what matters.

From Scream Factory:

James Marsden (the X-Men films), Katie Holmes (Batman Begins) and Nick Stahl (Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines) star in this pulse-pounding sci-fi chiller from director David Nutter (Game Of Thrones, The X-Files).

In the halls of Cradle Bay High School, something sinister is happening… something dark… something disturbing. Sure, the "Blue Ribbons" – the clique that's at the top of the food chain at Cradle Bay – appear perfect in every way. But underneath their clean-cut, well-mannered facades lurks a shocking secret – one that a group of Cradle Bay High's outsiders and rebels must uncover in order to save their school, their town... and their own lives.
