5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent subject from a timeless show February 19, 2005
By dargxj
I have this set, as well as the ghosts and UFOs sets, which are also worth picking up. I will say that I have been a longtime viewer of this show, ever since the early 90's. I feel that putting this show on DVD is a most excellent choise, and allows veteran viewers like myself to re-watch their favorite segmants without having to wait for reruns on Lifetime(currently reruns are shown back to back 5 day a week). It also gives newcomers a chance to see what they were missing back when these episodes were new, and they can take their time catching up on the series.

Anyway, the episodes have already been listed so I will only give details on the ones that I feel stick out the most. You may remember some of these cases from when they originally aired over a decade ago....

Trailer Terror-A couple is shot dead and their home torched. The couple's daughter and her friend were home at the time but their bodies were never found. No one knows if they were abducted, ran away, or themselves committed the crime.

Journalist's Murder-An investigative reporter is found dead in a hotel bathtub. At the time he was investigating ties between organized crime and government personnel. Many use his fear of blood to refute the police ruling of suicide.

Scared To Death-A chilling story of a nurse who supposedly experienced seven years of inescapable stalkings before she was found dead, tied up, and drugged. Some say she staged the who ordeal and in the end killed herself, but other disagree.

Unicorn's Secret-Case of the hippy guru and woman-abuser Ira Einhorn, who killed his girlfriend and kept her body in a Closet for a year and a half.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Want More Unsolved Mysteries Collections! October 6, 2006
Amy Lynn has already done a terrific job of summarizing these stories, so I won't repeat that, but I do have a couple of things to add:

1) I wish they would do more of these collections so we can remember our favorite UM episodes.

2) The discs include director/producer commentary for some of the segments. This is a great behind the scenes look at the making of the show.

3) My favorite episode from this collection, "Texas Most Wanted" is interesting for several reasons. It's a very well-done look at a horrible crime, the story of the murder of Larry Dickens by a violent pervert. The episode led directly to the perp's capture. The interviews with Dickens' mother and sister were very sensitive and well-handled. This is "Unsolved Mysteries" at its top-notch best.

BTW, take a good look at the actor who played Larry Dickens. That's Matthew McConaughey.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scary and spooky October 8, 2005
This collection of bizarre murders from the show 'Unsolved Mysteries' is likely to send chills down your spine. Some of the murders are so shocking and grotesque that they will give you the spooks. One murder that was really out there was titled 'Dakota Double Murder'. This is case of three people who were involved in a car accident on a cold winter night. Two of the people disappeared from the car, only to be found dead at the scene of the accident three months later, and in different states of decomposition!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unsolved Mysteries:Bizarre Murders February 10, 2005
By Rausha6
Unsolved Mysteries is the forerunner of today's reality based crime shows.Well written,Well-produced and directed,the series explored many unusual and unsolved facets of Crime,the paranormal and other unexplained phenenom.A series that originally started off as a special hosted by Raymond Burr,It was widely recieved by the public.Two more specials soon followed hosted by Karl Malden.Then Robert Stack became the permanent host of the series.With an authorative presense,Mr. Stack was born to host this show.

The release of the series on DVD is a real treat for fans.By catogorizing the releases (Miracles,Ghosts,UFO's,etc) fans can get a collection of the stories in their fields of interest.

While the DVD "Bizarre Murders'has many cases ,I am disappointed in the fact that there is no other special features than audio commentary on select segments by the show's producers.There also have been some bizarre murders that the series profiled over the years that were not included on the DVD.Maybe the producers will make a second volume of this particular catogory.
