Comments about Winter Kill, The (1974 TV M) (MOD):

I saw this movie in High School and liked it for a couple reasons. It was a good "who dunnit," it had wonderful scenery, and I loved the original soundtrack by the legendary Jerry Goldsmith. When I saw it was available in this format, I wanted it for its nostalgic value, and I wasn't expecting much as far as the quality. I just wanted the movie. However, I was mildly surprised as to how clear it is. It's not HD, but it's not bootleg quality either. Though colors aren't vivid, it's a very good transfer, and the audio is very good also. There was no problems with the disc- it played great

    Comments about Winter Kill, The (1974 TV M) (MOD):

    This is a good 1970's made for TV movie. Andy Griffith does a good job and the story is acceptable. The biggest drawback is that this is a 70's TV movie. The music is dated and the story is a little cheesy by today's standards. It is still worth watching because it has a decent plot.

      Comments about Winter Kill, The (1974 TV M) (MOD):

      Beautiful setting. It was a nice, harmless murder mystry without all the gore of today's murder films. Nothing here to get grossed out or upset about. Just nice, pleasant murder most foul. Disk was a very good print.

        Highly recommend this movie. It is well transfered and has good sound, The film it self is very entertaining.
        It is nice to see Andy Griffith in something different than Matlock or his 1st show.
        Buy if you like 70s mystery movies.

            I remember seeing this so long ago, and wanted to see it again, and add it to my collection. Theo ne thing it didn't have was Closed Captioning. I know most of these older movies didn't have it back then, but surely it could be done with those of us who are hearing impaired in mind. Still the story was good, and it kept you guessing til the end.

                Comments about Winter Kill, The (1974 TV M) (MOD):

                My (perhaps unusual) childhood was spent watching more "Matlock" and "Murder, She Wrote" than anything aimed at my age group. I remember seeing this on TV when it reran in the late '80s or early '90s. I had a very distinct memory of key scenes and the look and feel of the film. I was so pleased to find it available and even more pleased when it turned out exactly the way I remembered it. It is a good mystery movie and typical of its era.
