Product Description

Prepare yourself for spine-tingling fright unlike anything you’ve ever experienced with The Wes Craven Horror Collection. Regarded as benchmarks of the genre, director Wes Craven’s work is recognized for its inventive storylines, stunning visual effects, black humor and, of course, bone-chilling fear. Featuring The Serpent and the Rainbow, Shocker and The People Under the Stairs, The Wes Craven Horror Collection showcases some of his most renowned creations and is sure to make anyone who dares watch them scream with fear... The Serpent and the Rainbow An anthropologist travels to Haiti in search of a drug believed to have the power to bring people back from the dead and finds himself in a supernatural netherworld of zombies, blood rites and ancient curses. Shocker In this tale of madness in the video age, an unrepentant killer on death row transforms into a terrifying energy source that can only be battled by the athlete who connects with him through dreams. The People Under the Stairs Trapped inside a mysterious couple’s terrifying house, a young boy finds himself in a real-life nightmare when he discovers the hidden, diabolical creatures hidden deep within the house.

No one better than Wes Craven at scaring me but making me laugh as well. Kudos! A triple feature worth the time!

Minor Works of Wes Craven Aug. 24 2013
By MacheteJason - Published on Amazon.com
This 2-disc 2009 collection has three films representing the minor works of Wes Craven. These aren't Craven's best horror films by any stretch (check out the original Nightmare on Elm Street or Last House on the Left). This set works as a value pack to check out the movies inexpensively. The only extras provided are a trailer and production notes for Shocker. If you like more than one of these films this set is worth the money because none have a Blu-ray release.

The Serpent and the Rainbow - The best film included here and the only one without comedic elements.
Shocker - Craven has his tongue firmly in cheek because this movie is the weakest of this three film pack.
People Under the Stairs - Ving Rhames does a great job uncovering the evil of an incestuous couple but it turns into camp quickly.

Three Amazing Movies Dec 23 2014
By Jimmy Biggs - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This 3 disc collection of Wes Craven is absolutely amazing. Other than his major theactical releases ( A Nightmare on Elm Street Franchise, and The Scream Franchise) these are 3 of him best films. Any one of these are worth the money by themselves.
