A few of these are about haunted houses and evil ghosts(poltergeist)most however are about friendly ghost but all episodes are scary.A lot of these feature commentaries.I'm glad this has gotten an earlier release that October 5th
This will be great for Halloween night or whenever you want to hear a ghost story and Robert Stack's Voice accompined by the scary music they used will make this a must have.I also recommend Unsolved Mysteries UFO's and Unsolved Mysteries Miracles.Unsolved Mysteries UFO's will have a tribute to Stack as one of the bonuses.

I bought this DVD collection to help pass the time on my rowing machine. Mission accomplished: I was almost late to work this morning because i wanted to watch "just one more" episode! The presentation of these stories is superb and is sure to entertain even viewers who (like myself) are born skeptics - but who love a good ghost story just the same. A few reviewers bemoaned the "friendly ghost" episodes, but i found many of those wonderfully creepy, too. This is one of my favorite DVD purchases to date. It'll provide hours of entertainment and is a great value for the price.

I have purchased and/or rented a lot of true ghost stories in the past and I am usually disappointed in them. This is by far the best collection I have ever seen, 6 hours worth of fantastic stories. The stories are interesting and detailed and it is hosted by the late great Robert Stack whom brings the quality up just by his mere presence. This set is well worth the price, anyone interested in true ghost stories will want to add this set to their DVD collection. The best set I have ever purchased.

I have waited for this collection for many years, specifically the tale of "The Tallman's Ghost" which was extremely terrifing and fascinating. I have always enjoyed the professionalism that is brought to this production and I appreciate the attention to detail, while also getting to the point. I cannot express how much I enjoyed this collection, and I will truly cherish it from years to come.

The only drawback is that a few ghost stories are missing. I remember one about a judge's house in the southwest, and one about lights that followed a train which didn't make it on here. Also, I wish they included the original airdates. But still, these are 34 excellent stories. The tribute to Robert Stack, commentary, and interviews were also well done. It's not too expensive, either.

If you are fascinated by the idea that ghosts walk among us, you must have this 4-disc DVD collection. "Ghosts" is one of the better sets of Unsolved Mysteries that has been released on DVD, and it does not disappoint. Be sure to watch late at night with no other lights on for the full effect.

Some of these tales are truly frightening, such as "Tallman's Ghost," "Tatum's Ghost," "Voice From the Grave," "Lake Wales Haunting," and one episode about a murdered man whose killer has never been captured returning to haunt his former mansion. Each episode is shown in its entirety, as they aired on NBC and CBS several years ago. The one episode that does not belong on this set, and I have no idea why it was included, is "Mystery Hum." The hum is in no way attributed to supernatural phenomena.

This is an excellent DVD collection that I strongly recommend.

I wished there could be more quality documentaries like this - with great story-telling ability. First of all, Robert Stack is QUALITY personality and talent. John Cosgrove, one of the producers and writers of the Unsolved Mysteries series really knows what attracts the attention of the viewing public. These ghost stories are concise and suspenseful. They are lit very well and the camera work is exceptional. The only extras I would have loved to seen is more behind-the-scenes of what goes on when it comes to creating the lighting in these stories...I love the blue gel night scenes....Regardless of my film inquiries, this is one pack of dvds you won't be able to live without - especially during the halloween season. I wished there were more of these - and I wish Robert Stack was still alive to carry on the show - But John Cosgrove did the right thing - just like Jerry Seinfeld - go out on a win, and this is what they did. A+++++++++++++ all of the way!!

I have not seen this DVD set since it is still a pre-order, however when I read about it's release a small tear of joy formed in the corner of my left eye. I LOVE scary films! Although I love them I rarely get truly scared. HALLOWEEN was one and SILENCE OF THE LAMBS was another. One of the few times I was frightened out of my mind was after watching THE QUEEN MARY GHOSTS on "Unsolved Mysteries." My two roommates were gone and I snuck into their rooms to check their closets and under the bed. I was that frightened! When I got my Tivo in 2001 "Queen Mary" was one of my first Wish List words. I never thought this story (along with 30 MORE stories) would ever be released on DVD. "Unsolved Mysteries" knew how to tell a ghost story right!

Unsolved Mysteries has always been one of my favorite shows, so when this set came out I had to buy it. It was everything I expected. These are some of the best stories ever compiled from around the world. This is perfect for skeptics. I highly recommend this dvd set. It deserves 10 stars insted of 5!!!
