The second disc boasts You'll Find Out, a 1940 curiosity that not only brings Karloff and Lugosi together, but throws in Peter Lorre for an extra treat. With all that, who cares if the movie is really a vehicle for the popular radio personality Kay Kyser (and his "Kollege of Musical Knowledge")? Kyser's zany style, complete with sidekicks such as the ineffable Ish Kabibble, actually translates fairly well to the screen, and the movie cheerfully follows the blueprint of a screwball-paced haunted-house comedy. Even disappointed horror mavens will warm to the sight of Karloff, Lugosi, and Lorre huddled together, plotting no good.
Zombies on Broadway is a 1945 B-picture that probably ought to be unwatchable, but in fact it's quite competent (director Gordon Douglas was a versatile pro) and often fun. The headliners are Wally Brown and Alan Carney, whose sub-Abbott and Costello repartee is generally painful, although one grave-digging joke pays off nicely. Lugosi has a meaty role as a Caribbean hoodoo doctor who creates zombies in his jungle laboratory (shades of his White Zombie character). The film was made at RKO, home to Val Lewton's legendary horror unit, and is actually something of a send-up of Lewton's I Walked with a Zombie--complete with two of IWWAZ's notable cast members, the looming revenant Darby Jones and honey-voiced calypso singer Sir Lancelot. For fans of the terror titans, a respectable set, even if the chills are scarce. --Robert Horton
You will see some great acting and wonderful atmosphere in a fast paced film that has a good solid story.
When their PR hype promises a real zombie for opening night the mob boss sends them to the Carribbean to bring one back and make good their promise.
None of the films are true "classics" and only two qualify as strictly "horror" and even that is debatable.
I wanted a single DVD for "You'll Find Out" but could not find one that I would order. There was one available that I already had and was disappointed because it was dark... Read morePublished 4 days ago by BOOK MAVEN
Enjoyed it. The Walking Dead was worth the price of the disk. The rest was a bonus.Published 20 days ago by frank dalessandro
No complaints on the quality of the DVD or the delivery time. Both movies, however, are substandard, especially Frankenstein 1970. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Michael A. Black

i bought this just to have Frankenstein 1970. I loved this movie and haven't seen it as a kid. Both a good old fashioned Boris Karloff horror movie and kind of funny too. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Chris
