When camp was fun GAY CONSUMER ALERT! WARNER Home Video dusts off two killer catalog titles. "The Bad Seed" and "Dead Ringer," and adds supplements sure to engross even the most persnickety DVD collectors. Packaged in their original poster art, these classy-looking disks offer hysterical commentary tracks from gay playwright and gender illusionist Charles Busch, of "Die, Mommie, Die!" fame, along with new features and trailers outlining interesting details about how it all came together. Think Chernobyl is the biggest meltdown in history? Then experience Nancy Kelly's magnificently overwrought performance in Mervyn LeRoy's tense 1956 thriller "The Bad Seed" and think again. Realizing her nauseatingly "perfect" 8- year-old daughter Rhoda (Patricia "Patty" McCormack) is actually a serial murderess, panic-stricken Christine Penmark (Kelly) shreds her last nerve. When class penmanship award winner Claude Daigle is discovered bludgeoned and floating dead in a nearby lake, suspicions soon point to jealous Rhoda and her lethal tap shoes. "Why should I feel sorry? It was Claude Daigle got drowned, not me," Rhoda snarls to the snoopy apartment building superintendent (Henry Jones) who learns the hard way not to leave anything flammable within the toxic tot's reach. A tight and chilling precursor to "The Exorcist" and "The Omen," the film's climax arrives (logically) as poor Christine makes the unthinkable choice between a mother's love and the revulsion she feels for her satanic spawn. "If it were played naturally, it would be so much less fun," Busch and star McCormack concur on the breezy commentary track where they discuss the film's unusually theatrical nature and its enduring appeal with gay men. Reprising their roles from the hit stage play, Kelly, McCormack (who in recent years guest-starred on several "Sopranos" episodes) and Eileen Heckart (who plays Daigle's mother) each received Academy Award nominations for their work in this film. FAR FROM HER GREATEST MOVIE, though certainly not her worst, Bette Davis fans will find Paul Henreid's macabre 1964 ft MORE INFO The Bad Seed' 'Dead Ringer* Warner Home Video $1998 'It's the only gold medal Miss Fern gives — and it was really mine!' screams penmanship award runner-up and cold-blooded killer Rhoda Penmark (Patty McCormack) in the new DVD edition ol The Bad Seed.' chiller "Dead Ringer" an exceptional value. In it, Davis portrays twin sisters (one rich and amoral, the other, poor and bitter) with a longstanding feud between them — over a man, of course. Just imagine: two Bettes for the price of one! It isn't long before Edie Phillips (the poor one) whacks sister Margaret DeLorca (the rich one) with a well-placed bullet, fakes a suicide note and assumes her dead sister's identity Edie's plan works like a charm. Too well, in fact. Perhaps a little background research would've been a good idea before stepping into her sister's haute couture heels? A few nifty surprises lurk from beyond the grave, twists I wouldn't dream of revealing here. This gruesome slice of "Grand Dame Guignol" (a fad among aging actresses in the mid-'60s) also stars Karl Maiden as Edie's love interest Sergeant Hobbson, Peter Lawford as shady gigolo Tony Collins and Jean Hagen as Margaret's society girlfriend Dede Marshall. Davis devotees really haven't lived untU seeing Edie give Margaret's corpse a new hairdo to match her own, sort of the dark side of "The Patty Duke Show," according to Busch. Both Busch and "Bette Davis Speaks" author Boze Hadleigh provide the hilarious commentary track, and it's a doozy Every aspect of Davis is discussed, from the amazing fact she didn't develop lung cancer before the movie ends (she smokes non-stop) to the elaborate contraption of glue, wires, straps and lift tape "Margaret" must wear under her wig for her skin to appear "better preserved" than that of her skid-row sister, Edie.
