Editorial Reviews

Introducing Drive-In inspired entertainment: you bring the popcorn and we ll provide the rest! This is everything you ll need to bring back the nostalgia of drive-in theater when it was at it s very best, including two cult classics both starring Bela Lugosi as a mad scientist character: The Corpse Vanishes and Voodoo Man. The Corpse Vanishes is a strange but engaging tale of the lengths a mad man will go to for love. A scientist, aided by his unusual family - including an old hag, a large simpleton, and a malicious dwarf kills virgin brides, steals their bodies, and extracts gland fluid to keep his old wife young and beautiful. It s up to a nosey journalist to solve the case of the missing, murdered brides! Voodoo Man is a rare find! The story of Richard Marlowe who uses a combination of voodoo and hypnotism to steal the life essences of young girls he has kidnapped and imprisoned, all in the effort to revive his long-dead wife. Will he ever be stopped?! This fun package offers cult fare at its best! You ll see pre-show cartoons, commercial and concession ads, our two full-length features, intermission and even a note or two from the drive-in management. So sit back in the comfort of your home and enjoy your night In!

5.0 out of 5 stars At last, Lugosi's 'Voodoo Man' on DVD! July 1, 2013
At first glance, this seems like yet another retread of the same public domain Bela Lugosi flicks that we've seen countless times. But this DVD is only the second non DVD-R release of Lugosi's 1944 Monogram chiller "Voodoo Man", also starring fellow legends John Carradine and George Zucco.

This was previously only released, officially, as a Rifftrax DVD (which contained the un-Riffed film as a Bonus Feature) that, respect for the MST3K crew aside, was a real let-down for Bela Lugosi fans who have waited years for this title that was never even released on video.

Hopefully "Return of the Ape Man", another unreleased title starring Lugosi and Carradine, will also soon find its way to DVD. Another great release from the wonderful folks at Legend Films!

Given how unavailable on home video VOODOO MAN has been to fans of Bela Lugosi, this release could have/should have easily earned a 5 Star rating. But pairing it with THE CORPSES VANISHES, a public domain title that dozens of video companies have already released on DVD over the years, makes this come across as a disappointing compromise not worthy of more than 3 Stars...especially considering the version of THE CORPSES VANISHES used here has such poor picture quality. While VOODOO MAN is the best copy of the film I've seen, THE CORPSE VANISHES is murky, sometimes crops off the tops of heads, and is missing the opening Monogram Medallion logo found on previous editions. (To date, probably the best copy of THE CORPSE VANISHES is that used by Roan, who paired the film with THE DEVIL BAT.)

The most obvious second feature to pair with VOODOO MAN would have been the equally elusive RETURN OF THE APE MAN (also from 1944, and also co-starring Bela Lugosi, George Zucco and John Carradine), but even previously unreleased fare like REVENGE OF THE ZOMBIES (with John Carradine) or VOODOO WOMAN would have been just as appropriate. Given the demand for VOODOO MAN and RETURN OF THE APE MAN (no connection to Lugosi's earlier THE APE MAN), that double feature would have made this one of the most sought-after releases by fans of classic Poverty Row Horror.

On a more positive note, Legend has crammed a lot of goodies onto the disc. In addition to the two features, we are treated to vintage drive-in promos, snack bar ads, trailers and a cartoon. Hopefully future volumes in "Legend's Drive-in Double Feature" will see the focus on other titles that have long been missing-in-action.

I'm a Lugosi collector / completest. I already had the best prints I
was aware of on both of these, but my Voodoo Man ("Shock Therapy
Cinema" PD edition) is pretty bad, & as Legend has a very good
reputation for a budget company (they even did the colorization of
"She" for Kino), thought I'd give this a try.

In a nutshell, while not an awesome print, Voodoo Man is much
better than the Shock Therapy. I have not seen the Riff Tracks,
though as Legend releases those also it's likely the same print
with an added (worthless imo) Mystery Science Theater 3000
commentary track. Conversely, the print of Corpse Vanishes is
pretty bad; if you can find a factory pressed edition of the Roan
Corpse Vanishes/Devil Bat that is the way to go (though Lloyd
Kaufman is now burning current Roan output rather than pressing
& in most cases you don't find out until you get the disc delivered).

This is a dual layer (DVD9) disc, so the bit rate is respectable
(seems to average around 6) for a 2 film disc.

As far as the actual films, they're both Sam Katz Monograms (i.e.
they're both pretty dreadful), but they've got Bela! John Carradine
& George Zucco are also both in Voodoo Man.

To summarize, as of 10/13 this is the one to get for Voodoo Man,
the Roan is the one to get for Corpse Vanishes; both by a mile.

4.0 out of 5 stars Poverty Row gold! October 30, 2013
Verified Purchase
PD movies from the Lugosi Poverty Row films. He made nine of them with Monogram, and included are two. Corpse Vanishes is classic Lugosi weirdness, but Voodoo Man gives it a run for its money. Actually, Voodoo Man is difficult to find on dvd and is my personal favorite of the Poverty Row Lugosi films; the cast is exceptional as it also stars George Zucco and John Carradine.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK print of Voodoo Man with echo chamber audio October 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
Read G. Ratcheson's review for the best info. The only thing I'm adding is the audio for Voodoo Man is not what it should be. It sounds as though it was done in an echo chamber. Sometimes the first DVDs released by the cheap companies had an odd sound, and this is reminiscent of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable October 26, 2013
Verified Purchase
These minor classics are very watchable. They move at a good pace. Character development is good. Keep in mind that these films were made on limited budgets. The extras are fun to watch. The movie trailer "Glen or Glenda" is bizarre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bela Lugosi can do no wrong September 23, 2013
By duspan
Verified Purchase
Other than some very minor distortion about 25 minutes into Voodoo Man these are two awesome Bela Lugosi flicks I've been waiting to see for a long time. Both definitely looks remastered from their original 35mm prints. Bela definitely does some eye gestures and camera closeups that are reminiscent from White Zombie in Voodoo Man. Watching old school commercials were fun, but didn't exactly make me hungry, but does make me long for society to return back to Saturday night drive-in movie theaters. The reason I'm raving about Voodoo Man more is because this is the first time this film has ever been released.
