The Films

  • The Alpha Incident
  • Bad Taste - Respectable print of this excellent post-Grindhouse splatter film directed by visionary New Zealand-based filmmaker Peter Jackson. One of the best features included in the set.
  • A Bell From Hell
  • The Blancheville Monster
  • The Bloody Brood
  • A Bucket of Blood
  • Cathy's Curse
  • The Cold
  • Death Rage - Stylish and fun poliziotteschi directed by Antonio Margheriti and starring Yul Brynner. Print is muddy and the dubbing is a bit off, but the film is definitely worth viewing in any form. A bit of an odd choice for a Horror-themed set.
  • Deep Red
  • The Demon
  • The Demons of Ludlow - Intriguing low-budget spook film about a town haunted by the misgivings of its insidious founders. Fans of The Fog might get their kicks from a few of the spookier moments. Film quality is passable and isn't as impenetrably dark as some other flicks in the set.
  • Devil Times Five - Mill Creek Entertainment logo is present in the bottom corner of the screen on several occasions.
  • The Devil's Hand - Out-of-focus and quite jumpy, this rough print suffers from many of the problems that plague public domain features. "Cigarette burns" are also more noticeable than usual.
  • Dr. Tarr's Torture Dungeon
  • Driller Killer - Print features noticeable scratching in upper right hand corner. Unedited!
  • Drive-In Massacre - This George "Buck" Flower penned slasher suffers from several poorly-lit night sequences, but does boast quite an opening decapitation.
  • Funeral Home
  • The Ghost
  • Gothic
  • Hands of a Stranger
  • Haunts
  • Horror Express
  • Horrors of Spider Island
  • The House of the Dead
  • I Bury The Living
  • I Eat Your Skin
  • Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter
  • Lady Frankenstein - Decent print of this fun AIP knockoff starring Joseph Cotton. Some scratches on the print are noticeable, but relatively harmless.
  • The Legend of Bigfoot
  • The Man in the Attic
  • Medusa
  • Messiah of Evil
  • Metamorphosis - Low-budget The Fly knock-off directed by Italian splatter regular George Eastman. For all its faults, it is quite watchable and Eastman did pick up on some of Joe D'Amato's filmmaking techniques. Print quality is better than most films in the set (most likely due to its release date - 1990). Look fast for Grindhouse femme fatale Laura Gemser.
  • The Murder Mansion - Although the runtime matches the listing on IMDb, this Euro-mystery suffers from enough quick cuts and unresolved scenarios to make me suspect some foul play.
  • Naked Massacre - Print features tracking lines and minor damage. It also only runs for 85 minutes, whereas a full print (according to IMDb) should run 92 minutes in length.
  • Oasis Of The Zombies
  • Panic
  • A Passenger to Bali - This is not a feature film, but an episode of Studio One, a US television series broadcast from 1948 to 1958.
  • The Revenge of Dr. X
  • Scream Bloody Murder - Creepy psycho-killer flick about a crazed teen who murders his mother and her new husband, only to have their dismembered corpses haunt his every thought. Choppiness during murder sequences makes me think there may be some minor edits. Print also has some blurring and tracking lines.
  • Shock - Not the Mario Bava feature, but the 1946 film-noir starring Vincent Price.
  • Silent Night, Bloody Night
  • Sisters of Death
  • Slashed Dreams - Mind-numbingly awful 70s drama parading as a horror film (most likely due to a brief appearance by Robert Englund). Watch at your own risk!
  • Snowbeast - Dull and disappointing eco-terror film starring Bo Svenson that is all build-up and no payoff. Picture quality for this TV movie is actually a shade better than most films on the set.
  • Track of the Moon Beast
  • War of the Robots
  • Werewolf in a Girls' Dormitory - Film is missing its opening credits and suffers from some print damage on one particular occasion.
  • The Witch's Mountain
