Editorial Reviews

The Phantom: A master criminal known as the Phantom makes a spectacular escape from Death Row and, aided by a grotesque being called "the Thing," continues his murderous activities. Holding a grudge, the Phantom threatens the district attorney whose daughter and a reporter set out to find the fiend. Soon the duo and killer wind up at an old dark house... that also happens to be an insane asylum. Good spooky fun!

The Intruder: In this mixture of mystery, adventure and murder, the S.S. Intruder has an unexpected passenger: death! When a guest winds up murdered and the ship is wrecked before the culprit can be found, the captain and passenger Monte Blue find themselves confronting a killer gorilla, a wild man roaming the jungle, and a cave of skeletons in this wild chiller-thriller.

Tangled Destinies: A plane bound for Los Angeles is forced to land in the desert during the night due to heavy fog. The passengers and crew take shelter in an old deserted farmhouse, but soon the lights go out and murder strikes! With a fortune in diamonds at stake, it's only a matter of time before the grim reaper claims another.

Dead Men Walk: In one of the rare instances of a poverty row company coming up with a vampire story, George Zucco plays both sides of the coin as the Clayton brothers: Lloyd, a well-respected New England doctor, and his twin Elwyn, an evil occultist who rises from the dead as a bloodsucker! With the help of his hunchbacked servant Zolarr, Elwyn begins a new campaign of evil that causes the townspeople to suspect that their beloved doctor may not be quite as kindly as they believe.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quick and cheap...the way you like 'em! December 27, 2006
Here's a mildly entertaining collection of four poverty-row films from the 1930's. "Dead Men Walk" was the only film I'd heard of before watching this disc. And it's easily the best of the bunch. George Zucco has a dual role as twin brothers, one of whom is resurrected as a vampire. It also marks the final film appearance of genre favorite Dwight Frye. "The Intruder" is a ghost story set aboard a ship. There's some nice atmosphere and some dated comic relief, but it's not a bad little picture. "Tangled Destinies" is a melodrama in which survivors of a plane crash are caught up in ghostly goings-on. "The Phantom" is a typical 30's crime thriller, with a death row inmate targeting a crime-fighting duo.

As for the quality of the disc, it varies from film to film. Retromedia is quite adept at finding odd, cult (and yes, forgotten) films. But unlike competitors such as Roan or Image, they don't appear to spend too much effort on restoration. The night scenes in Tangled Destinies are pretty murky, while The Intruder suffers from a "washed out" look in the daytime scenes. Again, Dead Men Walk is the real winner here. There are plenty of scratches, but at least the contrast is. . .well, not exactly right, but much better than the other films. In any event, it's probably the best that any of these films will ever look on DVD.

At around an hour each, none of these "forgotten" films will try your patience much. They're certainly slow-moving by today's standards. But if like your old movies with atmosphere and don't mind the obvious low budgets, you could do a lot worse.

Retromedia has made an interesting compilation of early horror films that are genereally forgotten today,only familiar to readers of George Turner and Michael Price's "Forgotten Horrors" book series.

The choices are adequate,but uneven...especially in quality.
The films themselves are decent,but the prints are not remastered in the least and are rather muddy and murky and/or too pale.
This makes the 20.00 price tag particularly hard to swallow,especially since the titles are now available elsewhere at much cheaper prices(ex.The Phantom(1931) is now part of one of those MillCreek box sets,same quality,with 49(!) other movies for the same price!

I had purchased this at a Borders when it first came out,and enjoyed it enough to reccomend it to the Classic film buff and curious horror fan.
Here's the films:

The Phantom(1931)-Old dark house thriller with a maniac loose in a house and his accomplice called "The Thing".
Somewhat slow moving,but laced with humor and atmosphere,this ends up being one of the more peculiar of the Old Dark House thrilers of the decade.
Pretty Good.

The Intruder(1931)-BIZARRE early 30s film about people that get in a shipwreck end up on an island and have to fight for survival,what with a criminal(Harry Cording) and a totally over the top Mischa Auer,who hangs out with a Gorilla and keeps skeletons in his cave/home,which he likes to stab frequently.
He even brings one with him to rest on the sundeck of the rescue ship that rescues the survivors at the end!
Totally insane and alot of fun,this is a reason to purchase the set.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not forgotten-- February 15, 2012
By Marty
It's a wonder that any of these movies still exist at all.No,these films aren't Citizen Kane or Gone With The Wind,but at 2.50 each,who can complain.Most folks under 40 could care less about a black and white film that runs about an hour.Fans of these types of old dark house films should like this collection.The two best in my opinion are The Phantom and Tangled Destinies.Intruder is ok but I wish they would have substituted another film like The Dark Hour '36,The Ninth Guest '34,Midnight Mystery '30,Return of the Terror '34,etc.,instead of having Dead Men Walk,which can easily be found elsewhere.You're never going to find any of these movies in pristine restored condition.That's a given.I love these old dark house forgotten movies and wish there were more sets like these.If these type of films aren't your cup of tea,a price of 99 cents would be too much.But for the rest of us;it's a fine collection.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
THE PHANTOM: Absolutely creaky 1931 thriller of an escaped from Death Row master criminal after the DA that sent him there. The action takes place in a couple of old dark houses. The characters are played by a bunch of zero talent non-actors. Though the sets are not bad the whole thing plays like a BADLY produced play. There is no background music to move things along. It only takes about 61 minutes to do its thing. Watching a silent movie would be more exciting. The quality of the picture is OK, probably the best there will ever be.

I will review the other films on this DVD as I watch them.
