    3.0 out of 5 stars Indie creepshows from Pendulum Pictures August 5, 2008
    All but eight titles in PENDULUM's CATACOMB OF CREEPSHOWS 50 MOVIE PACK are new (for them) DVD releases. The repeats: "Cope," "Deadly Memories," "Demon Slaughter," "Hell's Highway," "Night," "Sick Bđstđrd," "Slaughtered" and "The Tenement."

    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.

    (6.8) Addiction (2003) - Frank Franconeri/Mim Granahan/Lydia Fiore
    (???) At the House of Madness (2007)
    (1.4) Awaken the Dead (2007) - Gary Kohn/Lindsey Morris/Nate Whitty (and dozens of zombies)
    (???) Caregiver (2007) - Asa Wallander/Rebeka Montoya/Elisa Elliot
    (5.2) Clean (Canada-2006) - Marco Calliari/Sebastien Croteau/Martin Dubreuil
    (6.6) Cope (2007) - Rachel Pinto/Robert Allen Wagner/Krystal Sullivan
    (???) Dead Country (Australia-2008) - Zoran Babic/Andrew Merkelbach/Mandy Kane/Lloyd Kaufman (voice)
    (1.4) DeadHouse (2005) - Pablo Macho Maysonet IV/Brian Rivera/Bryan F. Irrera
    (2.9) Deadly Memories ("Body Shop") (2002) - Phillip Newman/William Smith/Robert Z'Dar
    (???) Death Becomes Them (2001)
    (4.7) Death Factory (2002) - Lisa Jay/Karla Zarnudio/Jeff Ryan/Ron Jeremy

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Flicks! November 17, 2008
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    (But, your mileage may vary...) I liked these independently made flicks. But I can understand how they might not be for the regular consumer of mass media. So buyer beware....

    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.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Yikes June 25, 2009
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    If you are looking for weird video to show at a party, this is perfect. I could not finish watching the fifteen I attempted to watch. I would not give these a B movie rating. Perhaps a E movie rating.
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Judge for yourself. September 29, 2009
    Judge for yourself. As with all movies, you never really know until you see it yourself. If you have an independent mind and are capable of forming your own opinions, then do so. But don't let the anonymous haters bash something you have never seen. Every good movie ever made has had someone criticize it. And every amateur wanna be critic says they could film it on their kids camera and so on. But they don't and they can't or they'd be forced to admit that it 's not as easy as they think. If all anyone ever did was criticize, we'd have nothing to watch. So respect the process and the effort and use your own brain. Did they really expect to get 50 (Or however many) movies for $14.99 and get big budget releases. Really? They didn't know that they were buying cheap indie horror films made on a shoestring budget? Really? They expected something else? If that's the depth of their intellectual perception, why should anyone listen to their opinion? You shouldn't. So judge for yourself and have some fun.

    4.0 out of 5 stars FUNNY, inventive stuff (for the most part) January 24, 2010
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I picked "Skeleton Key" more or less at random as the first film to watch from this collection and that set the tone for my expectations. This is ,for the most part. funny, inventive stuff. "Trees" is a very funny low budget parody of "Jaws" which was worthwhile whereas "Reservoir Cats" did NOT deliver the goods, even as a low budget parody. The inventiveness of the Effects People involved in these films is to be applauded and in many low budget efforts the power of suggestion is worth just as much as the most spectacular Special Effects exploding head. At times I felt I was watching Existential End Times Porn as in the case of "Johnny Sunshine" which delivered the goods on many levels. Elements of Dada (intentional or not. does it matter?) and experimental film abound and just the JOY OF MAKING A MOVIE is evident in even the goofier efforts. Lots of Gore and a pretty high incidence of naked breasts but its for ART so shut up already. Low budget independent films are the raw materials that thankfully filter UP to the high budget guys. Quentin Tarentino directs the remale of "Johnny Sunshine" ? HMMMMMMMM !?!?!?

    If you like really stupid really gory short films that appear to be made by college kids on a weekend drinking binge, then theses are for you. But these are NOT MOVIES.
