Werewolf Shadow
http://www.dvdmaniacs.net/Reviews/U-Z/werewolf_shadow.html
I think I'm in for a treat with this one, though was disappointed in reading that this version has a bit of nudity taken out. Oh well, 8 buck ftw.

And my first ridiculously large amounts of movies in a set collection...
50 pack:Horror Classics (Mill Creek)
http://206.191.17.254/ViewProductDetails.asp?productid=21

Never wanted to venture into these 50 packs and such for fear of quality of the transfers. So far they seem ok  for paying about $2.50 a movie.  Smile

I don't mind scratches or damaged prints(i.e. best print found for these old/obscure/weird movies) but do a s**tty transfer (or from tape, unless thats the only source) and I no likey.

Someone is Watching: starring Stephanie Powers and Margot Kidder, based on the description on the back i thought i was in for a badly made supernatural treat instead i get a crapfest that probably ran on Oxygen or Lifetime. It seems there is something in Stef's new home ...in the walls nope not a ghost just some wimpy dork with big psych problems.


One day at Wal-Fart, my girlfriend decided she was tired of my crapfest films and wanted to buy some cheap thrillers. A dollar a movie--What the heck?

Someone Is Watching was one of those films. She walked out halfway through. I was glued to the screen. Awful, terrible, overwrought, just plain stupid and inept. Loved it so much that I kept my girlfriend from throwing it away and stashed it in my collection. "If you watch that again, you watch it alone," she told me.

Heh, heh.  I always do, honey, so what's another crap film on the pile?

I've seen about 5 or so of these 50 pack collections at Best Buy for quite some time.  Haven't ventured forth getting them as I've gotten burned buying similar type packs before from Brentwood Entertainment.

Enjoy that one.  I really like the first two films and appreciate what they tried to do with the third (though it seemed to miss for me).  After that, things get silly.  You know, because killer puppets fighting Nazis is serious.  Still, I think that the box set is worth it.

Both my "Charles Band Collection 1" and "Full Moon Classics Vol 1" arrived.  I already need to do a short write-up for "Shadowzone" in the Bad Movies section.

I've only ever gotten the Mill Creek 20-packs -- Haven't seen their 50-packs sold out here --
The discs all seem to play just fine with no glitches, but as others have observed here, sometimes the film they're transfering from is so cut up/scratched/jumpy & just plain crappy in the first place as to be almost unwatchable, though this varies a lot from film to film.
I'd say go for it -- You can always trade it in later at your local DVD/CD swap-shop.

Death Bed: The Bed That Eats

An experimental film about a bed that...well...eats. It's favorite dishes include apples, fried chicken, and people. A strange film, but if you've ever wanted to see a bed down a 16oz bottle of pepto bismol then this is your film.

Good call on Q, Centepede Horror and Uzumaki.  Q is classic, Centepede is fun as hell insect carnage and Uzumaki.....well...it's Uzumaki.  Very strange film.

Cruised by Best Buy today and picked up the Paul Naschy combo with The Night of the Werewolf and Vengeance of the Zombies.

Thanks Ska! Q is great not only because of Michael Moriarty, Richard Roundtree, David Carradine and Larry Cohen, but Blue Underground's always great when it comes to spicing up their discs with extra material! I used to have a friend who reviewed material for Joe Bob Briggs and William Lustig and BU dumped free discs on her all the time. She passed some of the overflow on to me for Christmas one year and, aside from the great conversation and eye candy she provided, I miss the free movies too. Heh heh. I wonder whatever happened to her... oh yeah, and any reviewer who's ever tried to fill out their archives with a movie from every letter of the alphabet can tell you that Q is a requirement.

Centipede Horror I haven't watched yet. I'm putting it off until sometime during the summer so I can do a double-feature between that and the big bug movie Centipede. Anyone with any opinions on that one? I was going to rent it from Blockbuster, but it looks like somebody in the neighborhood with a feitsh for insects baring 100 legs walked off with it...

As for Uzumaki, I've said before and I'll say it again: anybody who loved the movie needs to hunt down the manga trades from Viz. If I could only use three words to review it, they'd be "f*cking horror masterpiece".

Yeah, I'm a big fan of what Lustig has done with Blue Underground.  They've brought back some classics, and have done so in an amazing way.   The quality of their discs is superb. 

The highlight of their collection for me is the double disc of Dead And Buried.  It's absolutely gorgeous and packed to the brim with special features.

As for the manga for Uzumaki, I'll have to pick that up at some point.  I knew it was based on a manga but have never searched it out.  Thanks for the recommendation!

I've seen about 5 or so of these 50 pack collections at Best Buy for quite some time.  Haven't ventured forth getting them as I've gotten burned buying similar type packs before from Brentwood Entertainment.

Well, I'm disappointed and pleased at the same time.

A lot of them(if not all) are taken off tapes. You can see the horizontal drops and static lines moving around that tapes get. Compression/transfers are pretty low it seems. Some  are more noticeable than others and artifacts get bad sometimes.

A lot of the movies are from the 30's-50's and I think in those times most films were composed for 3:4 or something close. But some are horribly cropped, the one really p**sing me off being 'Monster from a Prehistoric Planet'. I didn't know there was a Japper monster movie in it so even with its horrid cropping I was pleasantly surprised. TongueOut


Even with all those negatives I'd say it's worth it. Most of these movies I'd probably never have bought individually and quite a few are starring Bella and I've seen close to zero of his films so it's fun seeing his stuff.

If you can get over the quality and bad cropping these sets seem to be fun. Just know what your getting into and keep telling yourself its only a few bucks a flick.  Smile



And Q is great. I think I have all the Larry Cohen Blue Undergrounds. Bone is some funky stuff, it just ramps up the weird slowly. Not super odd but theres definitely some wtf s**t going on.
