MAXIM MEDIA's "Pendulum Pictures" horror films are distributed exclusively by MILL CREEK ENTERTAINMENT. These movies are a throwback to the early '60s type of drive-in theater gorefests that were once popular with teens. Fans of low-budget murder, mayhem and maniacs will not be disappointed by this little collection.
This item's companion, MORTUARY OF MADNESS 50 MOVIE PACK (also from PENDULUM-MILL CREEK), offers up another 42 new-to-MCE-DVD gorefests.
Parenthetical numbers preceding titles are 1 to 10 viewer poll ratings found at a film research website.

Watching these movies reminded me of a book I read earlier this year; "If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor" by Bruce Campbell. It's in part an autobiographical account of how he and his buddies (such as Sam Raimi and his brother) made similar independent films in their youth - such as the "Evil Dead" series of movies. It's clear from reading this book that making such independent fare is hard work and in no small degree something that they put their heart into. The same I imagine was true for the people who created the films in this set and the "Decrepit Crypt of Nightmares 50 Movie Pack" (I bought both).
I noticed that several of the other reviewers made comments along the lines of - "I could do this" or "My kid could make this".... My suggestion if that is true; get your stuff together and go for it! Who knows - maybe someday we will seeing a major blockbuster you made.
The plus side of this collection is you can see that the people involved making these were obviously having fun. That's the good part. The bad part; it's like watching someone else's kids in a school play where you don't know anyone.

This seemed a good combination of movies, for a husband who grew up in the fifties and sixties. It turned out to be filled with amature photographers attempts at horror. Read morePublished on November 17, 2008 by Donna Whittington
