SciFi Classics Collection: 50 Movie Pack (12DVD) [
In this pulp science-fiction film, a flying saucer full of aliens of a "Superior Race" lands on Earth, searching for grazing grounds for their Gargon cattle. One of the aliens uses a ray gun to kill a curious dog ("They blast the flesh off humans!"). Rebellious Derek inspects Sparky's dog tag and realizes that civilized beings inhabit the planet. He begs his companions to consider the rights of the people of Earth, but the other crewmen turn on him. They leave one of the lobster-like Gargon chained inside of a cave, make responsible Thor hunt down the escaping Derek, and return to their home planet to fetch herds of Gargon.
While Derek befriends Betty, Gramps, and Joe in the nearest suburban utopia, Thor's relentless manhunt results in numerous blasted skeletons and abductions. The fun really gets going when the now gigantic Gargon escapes its chains and goes on a murderous rampage. Spunky Betty begins a romance with Derek, who promises to make Earth his home. Reporter Joe is hot on the trail of the double-murder story that grows into something really big. Teenagers from Outer Space sports primitive special effects and almost-bad acting, but really they just add to the angsty fun of this 1959 flick. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Four movies were removed from the red-box version:
Robot Monster (1953)
Devil of the Desert vs. Son of Hercules (1964)
Zontar, The Thing From Venus (1966)
Battle of the Worlds (1961)
Instead you get in the black box version:
Giants of Rome (1964)
Moon of the Wolf
The Alpha Incident
the rest of which are 1970s' vintage.
Otherwise, it's a fair collection. Not great reproduction or quality, but for the price it's a real bargain. A must-have for those of us who like B-film scifi. I would personally like to have more pre-1970 films of this sort in the collection, rather than the later ones.
The picture quality on some movies leaves a lot to be desired though. Are you old enough to remember VHS and SP, LP, and EP? If your answer is yes, let this be your guide. Much of the content looks like it's EP quality, the rest is much sharper. In fact some movies are so soft that they look like they've been copied again and again. They lack proper detail and are several generations removed from the originals. I'd say about half of the films look really good and most of the others are acceptable. Very few of them come close to actual DVD quality picture standards. That's okay, I personally don't mind VHS quality once in a while if I enjoy the movie, and this set only cost me ten bucks!
Be sure to read all the individual reviews (after you buy the collection).
A few of highlights:
The Incredible Petrified World - 66 minutes long
Queen of the Amazons - original title "Amazons and Gladiators"
Robot Monster - terminator in a fur suit
She Gods of Shark Reef - natives and sharks but no She Gods
The Amazing Transparent Man - you can see through this one
The Wasp Woman - a stinging performance
Santa Claus Conquers The Martians - it is an abduction story
Teenagers From Outer Space - so what is new?
Crash of the Moons (Rocky Jones) - female ruler with a nasty attitude
Mesa of Lost Women - Horrible background music
Killers From Space - saw this as a kid - still spooky - Ping-Pong ball eyes
Zontar, the Thing From Venus - rubber Venusians
There are a few glaring omissions including "The Crawling Eye"

Kitchy B-films but sometimes it takes me back to the all-nighter at the drive-in.Published 8 months ago by starraine kaski
HORRIBLE, Do Not Buy. It looks like someone transfered these great movies from old VHS cassettes, using a phone or video camera to record it off an old CRT TV. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Romeo
