Unfortunately the only place this set falls short is that there are no special features, or even a list of the episodes on the DVD packaging. That should not deter you from purchaing this top notch collection though, because there was nothing else like it produced prior to it or since. These shows shine in that they were able to create scares without resorting to shocking or grizzly footage.Read more ›
Overall this set is still well worth the price for the rarity and cult status that this tv series holds.
This is fantastic! The classic anothology series from the early 70s is finally seeing a dvd release!
This series was made when tv productions were still original, creative, and not cheap to make reality shows.
Even though the price is slightly high and the set is dvd-r it is still worth it and a small price to pay for being able to own this classic series!!
Program Content: This is a William Castle production - and that usually carries the connotation of theatrical gimmickry. But far from a gimmicky spookfest like House on Haunted Hill or 13 Ghosts (don't get me wrong, I love those films for what they are), this TV production came along in the "modern" television age. This was 1972-1973, several years past the William Castle produced, Rosemary's Baby, and contemporary to the final season of Night Gallery - a new era, to be sure. Furthermore, this series had the guiding hand of Richard Matheson (I am Legend, Legend of Hell House, Twilight Zone, Duel, etc.) The result? A paranormal series with an edge. The overall tone is, I dare say, a tad edgier than Night Gallery. And, yet, the series is a product of its time. What I term "edgy" must be viewed in the context of its time, and viewer expectations must be adjusted accordingly. This was not a period of flashy editing and jump scares, but, rather, a time when Story mattered. Thankfully, Story drives this anthology and Richard Matheson is the captain. And the cast is stellar, too. The names read like a Who's Who of the best working actors of the time.
Picture Quality: The prints used in the mastering of these DVDs are superb. Color and clarity are pristine, and there is NO discernible damage or excessive grain. The image quality adds an extra dimension to the enjoyment of these shows. They are better than what we've seen released in the Night Gallery issues, which date themselves to the same period.Read more ›
