This is along the same lines as the Hellraiser 4 Film Blu-Ray I had reviewed, also released by Echo Bridge/Miramax.

The films are all on one disc and the picture quality is pretty good, but the first film is by far the best of the bunch. The sequels are more like B movies, and Full Tilt Boogie is a poor quality Documentary with a few fun points but nothing amazing.

All four films are 1080P (which doesn't help full tilt boogie mind you), and From Dusk Till Dawn 1&3 have 5.1 surround, while the other two films have 2.0.

*slight spoiler*
Without going into too much of the synopsis and plot, the stories primarily encompasses a group of people getting caught off guard by a bunch of vampires. The first film especially switches gears very rapidly and it becomes a very different movie at that point =).
*end spoiler*

The picture quality is alright but nothing to write home about, it will most likely be the best we see for these movies, especially in a one disc bundle such as this. The audio can be a little low but is decent for the most part, and the extras are non existent. None what so ever, just scene selection and movie selection on the main screen, not even subtitles.

If you are looking for a cheap fix and are a fan of Rodriguez or Trejo then you will probably enjoy these films, they can be campy and fun, but the first one is by far the coolest and best fleshed out.
I would recommend this to any Tarantino/Rodriguez fans but tell them not to expect too much in terms of the production value. It's all very mediocre, but get's the job done.

Video Quality: C- (they all look alright, with the original fairing the best and full tilt looking atrocious)
Audio Quality :C- (can be on the low side, even with my sound bar I have to raise the volume pretty high)
Aesthetics: C (they could have made the print a little larger on the back cover)
Price: B (this was a pre-order on most sites for $7.99 and can now be had for $9.99 at most stores, not a bad deal if you enjoy these films. That's cheap for a blu-ray, let alone four of them.)
Extras: F (None at all, not even separate menus for each film,besides the initial choosing what movie you'd like to watch. And no subtitles at all brings this set down grade wise a lot.)
Overall: C-

The first film is a cult grindhouse classic that should be in every hip collection. This 4 pack is the best way and cheapest way to get all the films in the series as it is currently in the $5.00 Walmart bin.

All three films are on one disc. A second disc contains bonus material and a movie on the making of the film. Personally I enjoyed the first film immensely, but not enough to see how they made it. The sequels are worth a view, but are not ownership material per se unless part of the set. I bought this collection and paid for it by selling my original film at that major rival auction site by using it as a "hook" to sell a collection of lesser horror films.

If you own the first one and have seen the other two, most likely you will pass on this one.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex, and nudity in all 3 main features.

Even the four movies are in one disc. Which it's means the image have to be sacrifice. At`the end, the transfer is good. But if you want the movies in they full glory of High definition. I recommend that you buy them all separate. But I have to said this is a really good deal.

I have always said that blu rays need to have at leest two movies on one disc if they truly want to be the media of choice. They are slowly moving up but too many older movies NEED another movie on there. othewise many catalog features will never get to blu ray. And many will disapear from dvd as that slowly goes away too. Leaving them out of print forever. IT's a terrible thought. BUt many movies never made it to dvd from vhs, And that sucked! Ok. echo bridge, which usually does a terrible job on theater titles on blu ray ,does just that on the first movie, it's a lousy blu ray, all discolored and such. At least it doesnt have dirt on the print like halloween two does or lots of other movies on blu ray. But it's still bad compared to the canadian release , which I own as well. That's heads aboved this drab looking bad print they used. HOWEVER the three other movies on here are good enough to make up for it. THey were direct to video releases and were never theatrical releases. they do look better on blu ray than dvd. THere's no extras but you get the whole set here. I would however buy the canadian one if you care about having a good picture on the first movie. The other two look fine and they don't have any dirt or lines in them, something some major studie releases have on some of their 1990's releases! HOW bad is that? ANyways , these are a good imporvement over the dvds , and the colors look better by far. So this one is for completists who want all three movies and they are all on one disc! which only once again proves that you CAN and should put at last two movies on a blu ray. The last movie was a documentary film about making the first movie. IT's in poor shape print wise, but it's still a good watch. This was made for conventions probably and therefore it's good that it's still around at all. I didn't mind the scratches on this one, it's a complete bonus video anyways. THe second and third look good though and that's a good deal. and 'full tilt boogie' is a nifty little documentary film from the mid 90's. SO cheers for all the movies on this one, except the first.

A few years back I had never heard of the first From Duck Till Dawn until I watched it from NETFLIX. Sometime before I watched it, I saw the last 2 movies on Cable. I am glad that my friend/Roommate John Rynkowski bought this Collection for me. I like it very much.

The four disc Blu-Ray movie mini box set arrived intact with no sign of damage, to either the discs or the case they came in. Picture, sound and features playback is superb. I would recommend this box set to anyone who purchases it online.

Though the only ones worth watching are the original and the documentary "full-tilt boogie," it's good to have the whole collection on one disc.
