Editorial Reviews

In The Velvet Vampire, a couple accepts an invitation from the mysterious Diane LeFanu (Celeste Yarnall, The Mechanic) to visit her in her secluded desert estate. Unaware that Diane is actually a centuries-old vampire, the couple soon realize that they are both the objects of her seduction and cravings . . .


When Baron Frankenstein is killed by his creation, his daughter Tania (Rosalba Neri, a/k/a Sarah Bay) creates her own creature using the brilliant mind of her assistant and the body of her dimwitted servant in Lady Frankenstein. She not only ends up with the perfect lover, but one that can destroy her father’s killer. Also starring Joseph Cotten (The Third Man) as Baron Frankenstein.


Lisa (Linda Blair, The Exorcist) was looking forward to a nice, relaxing vacation at the family cabin, but instead she bears witness to the brutal death of her friends and family at the hands of a group of mindless punks in Grotesque. As the thugs close in on Lisa, they don’t realize they are about to come face to face with something far more horrifying than themselves


From deep within the tomb of the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun, Professor Douglas McCadden ships the coffin of Ankh-Vanharis to the California Institute of Sciences, where X-rays reveal five diamondlike crystals hidden within the coffin. Technician Peter Sharpe steals the crystals, but he doesn’t notice that the powerful X-ray has revived a green fungus. When the coffin is opened at a university press conference, the reporters uncover more than they bargained for. The mummy has disappeared . . . the Time Walker is alive again!

Shout! has pulled off a good set of movies grouped as a foursome. Shout! has been releasing classic low budget drive-in classics on DVD. The main reason I got this was the great looking Stephanie Rothman classic from 1971 Velvet Vampire. I am a big fan of Stephanie Rothman early '70s flicks. Code Red has released several of her films. Thanks to Shout! for releasing a great anamorphic widescreen print of Velvet Vampire.
Lady Frankenstein is a bad horror movie from 1970 that has never been treated good on home video. Shout! has released two versions of the film. The original at 83 minutes and an extended cut that runs 95 minutes. The extra scenes are noticed by a slight pause in the print, but its not too annoying. Both versions are presented in anamorphic widescreen and look really good for this low budget movie (compared to the Alpha video release).
The last two films are from the '80s and Time Walker isn't too bad. It is laughable in some scenes. But this anamorphic widescreen print is the best looking of this set. Grotesque is piller boxed at 1.33 aspect ratio, while the other three are 1.78/1.85.
Not much in way of special features on this two disc set, except commentary from the star of Velvet Vampire. There are trailers, poster galleries, tv spots and that is about it. These classics stand on their own where special features aren't needed.
Just glad to see the under appreciated Lady Frankenstein finally get a decent home video release. Velvet Vampire has had a decent DVD out, but this print is much better.
You can definately tell these cheap movies are Roger Corman fun!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Corman Monster Smorgasbord June 18, 2012
Shout Factory has released a 2 disc package of US/Euro Horrors in which 2 have been available through discount companies and 2 released for the first time in DVD format. Director Stephanie Rothman's 'THE VELVET VAMPIRE'-1971 I have already reviewed a year ago in its Cheezy Flicks release although the transfer included here is a big improvement with brilliant colors and a gorgeous 1.85 transfer making it the definitive release for this underrated vampire film. It includes a wonderful audio commentary with actress Celeste Yarnall who has a great memory of the shoot as a special feature and an original theatrical trailer. Disc Two has Director Joe Tornatore's 'GROTESQUE'-1988 and Director Tom Kennedy's 'TIME WALKER'-1982 both of which were staples of Cable television and budget VHS bins in the early nineties. 'TIME WALKER' is an enjoyable mummy movie blending Horror and Sci-Fi the likes of which low budget filmmakers of the fifties used to crank out in their sleep. With a great cameo from cult favorite Antoinette Bower, its a fast moving time waster. 'GROTESQUE' is a nasty blend of slasher and deformed monster antics cameoed with actors Guy Stockwell and Tab Hunter and peppered with an above average Linda Blair performance. The film has kudos for being lensed on you-are-there locations giving it a reality TV-like atmosphere throughout and also mixes the neo-punk 'MAD MAX' look to the villains in the piece. Both films include their original trailers and 'TIME WALKER' also has an interview with Kevin Brophy and Producer Dimitri Villard. The highlight of the smorgasbord is the definitive transfer of Director Mel Welles's Euro Cult classic 'LADY FRANKENSTEIN'-1972 which shows off the beauty and talents of Rosalba Neri billed here as Sara Bey.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Reason to Get This Collection April 24, 2012
What a grab bag of drive-in cinema we have here. GROTESQUE and TIME WALKER are pretty bad. GROTESQUE has Linda Blair and a familiar blonde from JAWS 2 but the story is pretty disjointed and I got the feeling that the film got made because it was written around the collection of rubber monster masks somebody owned. TIME WALKER...I've to be honest, I haven't made it all the way through that one yet. If it gets better, I'll be shocked (and will amend this review).

LADY FRANKENSTEIN is fun because it clearly follows the Corman philosophy: blood and nudity sell the picture. It's a little jarring to see a monster movie with naked chicks in it, but Corman knew what he was doing. The funnest part? Watching the completely over-the-top trailer for LADY FRANKENSTEIN first, noting all the leering hints that Lady Frankenstein is creating a monster (in every sense of the word) for her own fiendish and perverted pleasures...then watch the movie. Technically, the trailer is correct in what its delivering. But just not the ghoulish orgy hinted at in the trailer. (Plus, I've always loved that 70's schlock narrator featured in the trailer. I think John Landis used him as well for KENTUCKY FRIED MOVIE).

But the real reason to get this collection is for THE VELVET VAMPIRE. Produced by Corman and probably on a very thin budget, THE VELVET VAMPIRE actually ascends to the level of an art film. If I sound surprised, it's because I am: you usually didn't think "art film" and Roger Corman in the same sentence. Directed by Stephanie Rothman, this may be, I believe, the first genuinely erotic vampire tale.
