What a bargain! 50 Classics & Schlock For A Pittance!!!
I purchased this 50 DVD box set last autumn (for Halloween) and have viewed all of the films. There are some GREAT CLASSICS mixed with fabulous SCHLOCK for a price that can't be beat!
Different horror genres including:
Crusty, Creepy Creatures
Descend to the depths of the deep, dark ocean and encounter the "Phantom From 10,000 Leagues" and "Creature From The Haunted Sea". Check out the cheesy and quite primitive special effects in "The Giant Gila Monster". Rediscover terror of dogs dressed up in fur playing "The Killer Shrews". Hold your breath to see which hick from the backwoods will actually survive "The Attack of the Giant Leeches"! Also the great "The Hunchback Of Notre Dame" with the fabulous Lon Chaney, Jr., "The Gorilla", "Swamp Women", "Atom Age Vampire", "Beast Of yucca Flats", "Black Dragons", "Invisible Ghost", "The Vampire Bat" with Fay Wray, "White Zombie" with Bela Lugosi and "The Bat" With Vincent Price!
Majorly Maddening Madmen
Descend into insanity and weird funereal rites in Francis Ford Coppola's first full-length feature "Dementia 13". Be astounded at the scientific perversity of Jason Evers as he keeps the severed head of his fianc e alive in "The Brain that Wouldn't Die". Also includes, "Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde", "The Monster Maker", "Maniac", "The Amazing Mr. X", "The Tormented", and "Bluebeard".
Watch when Audrey II cries "feeeed me" in "Little Shop of Horrors". Fear for the fate of humanity as flesh-eating zombies roam the earth in Romero's "Night of the Living Dead". Find out what it's like to be "The Last Man on Earth" with Vincent Price and "The Last Woman On Earth" with Robert Towne. Go to the "Carnival Of Souls" with Candace Hilligoss, even!
Silent Horror Classics
Watch the amazing Lon Chaney in "Phantom of the Opera", slinking through the cellars of the Paris Opera House. Marvel at the chilling Max Schreck in "Nosferatu", giving a truly mesmerizing performance and the classic and futuristic, "Metropolis".
AND MUCH, MUCH MORE! I highly recommend this very cool and inexpensive box set for anyone who likes classic horror, cheesy schlock, Bela Lugosi or stylings of the great Ed Wood!

Great Deal for the movies you get. Spent less than .25 a movie. Some great classics including: Phantom of the Opera, Metropolis, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, House on Haunted Hill, Night of the Living Dead, Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Terror, etc. Such horror greats as: Karloff, Lugosi, Lon Chaney Sr. & Jr., Carradine, V. Price, Barrymore & Barbara Steele, + many more. Over 60 hours. One of the better compliations available.
I am very impressed with the collection of DVDs. As a fan of classic and hard-to-find horror films, this collection is a treat. Including "Night of the Living Dead" and "Nosfuratu" shows the collaborators knew what they were doing and it was also a treat to see such staple films such as "Metropolis" "Dementia 13" and Chaney's "Phantom of the Opera" all the while including campy films like "Little Shop of Horrors" "The Killer Shrews". The only setback is not including the landmark films "Frankenstein" and "The Wolf Man." But nevertheless you added the hidden gems that make us horror fanatics smile. We run to our books to read what historians had said, intriguing us to discover a new film or remind us of some we had seen deep in our past. This collection is highly recommended.
Who doesn't love the classics?
These are some of the best classic monster movies out there. This is such a good deal! It has Little Shop Of Horrors, White Zombie, The Phantom of The Opera, Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde just to name a few. It's so great.
Horror Classics 50 Movie Pack REVIEW
From the 20's to the 60's, from Bela Lugosi to Lon Chaney Jr., from Vampires to Zombies, this pack is "packed" with many classic films to choose from. After seeing a talk about it in a video, I was prepared that most of these movies aren't really what you would consider to be "Classics". But, I love anything that is vintage and a lot of the time I love a crappy horror movie because those tend to also be so bad that it is hilarious. And I am used to crappy entertainment because I am actually a vintage video game collector and you know that for every good NES game, there are about 12 bad ones. But, I am a guy who loves that. This is something that I live for that I want to collect until I die. And for that, I thank you.
