What A BARGAIN! 50 Classics & Schlock For A Pittance!!!
, May 30 2004
This review is from: Horror Classics Collection: 50 Movie Pack (12DVD) (DVD)
I purchased this 50 DVD box set this past 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 fiancée 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!
