I'm a sucker for those 10, 20, or even 50 DVD packs.  Usually there's always a few good ones in there, and often something new that I'd never heard of before that I enjoyed. 

This one though, it's just bad. 

First off, 50 fright classics.  From the title alone there are certain things you'd expect.  You'd expect them all to be "Fright" movies, maybe horror, some old sci-fi with giant monsters, a creepy murder mystery, things like that. 

You'd also expect there to be 50 of them.  It says it right there. 

There's not 50 and they're not all "fright" movies.  (I already expected them to not all be classics.) 

24 of those fifty are EPISODES of old serials.  Granted, they have two entire serials here (The Undersea Kingdom and The Lost City) but those aren't anybody's idea of fight classics. 

So... 26 Fright Classics and some serials? .... Nope.  Wrong again. 

One of movies Medusa is a gangster movie (and there's no woman with snakes for hair) and another, the Milpitas monster, CUTS OFF and returns to the title about halfway through the movie!

And on top of that, the picture quality is really bad on a lot of the movies, ranging from old worn out VHS tape to Old Worn Out VHS tape that somebody uploaded onto Youtube.

Sounds awful. Hope you didn't pay too much for it. I bought a cheapo DVD of The Milpitas Monster back in the 2000s, retitled as The Mutant Beast. Bad movie, bad picture quality, but it was at least "uncut."

I got it cheap, but I still feel ripped off.

HEY!!!  I resemble that last comment.

I have this movie in a different 50-movie pack. You're probably better off that your version cuts off and returns to the title. Although, the movie is entertaining in an odd sort of way . . .

     Never heard of this set, but thanks for the warning. With the exception of MILPITAS MONSTER (heard of it, never viewed it), I probably own copies of most of this, an'hoo.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

Eesh I tend to collect the 50 film multipacks I'll steer well clear of this set! looks like some company just told the work experience guy to go and pull up 50 public domain items that sounded vaguely spooky xD

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
