Get ready to monkey around with this smorgasbord of monsters and maidens, Something Weird-style! In Night of the Bloody Apes, a sex-crazed ape man looking for love (thanks to open heart surgery) tangles with the police and female wrestlers, while a crackpot, syringe-wielding maniac in a monster mask indulges in his own South American Feast of Flesh! Then have a double helping of prehistoric monkey business with The Mighty Gorga and One Million AC/DC, and head to the monster-filled nudist camps of The Beast that Killed Women and The Monster of Camp Sunshine where bathing beauties are menaced by clutching creatures from beyond! Plus you'll get a Bonus Fourth DVD packed with trailers from the outrageous Something Weird collection!

This is quite possibly the best box set deal of the year! All of the films are great, if you like bad drive-in fare, which i love! The extras really make this worth while! About and hour and a half of trailers, 2 hours of shorts, drive-in intemission spots and comic and poster art with music from the great horror surf band, The Dead Elvi! ... Buy now or be forever sorry! p.s.- the movies offered are 25 dollars each , so yopu are getting 75 dollars worht of moives for like, 40 bucks off, plus the disc of trailers and full color booklets for each film! Awesome, totally awesome!

I just wanted to say, These movies are all great, and others like them. I must own about 150 movies of this type. A Lot of people that leave reviews for these types of movies always seem to use the words "So bad They are Good". I have never felt that way. To me these movies are so good because they ARE good! "Something Weird Video Company" is probably THE BEST distributor of this stuff. And they make the movies even more enjoyable with all their extras they add to the discs, stuff you probably just wouldn't see anywhere else. When you think of all the work the filmmakers of these movies put into creating them, because they did most of the work themselves, you begin to appreciate their efforts. I like that these movies are what they are. An art form within themselves. Nowadays they are extra fun cause you get to see all those old classic cars when they were all new. And the shots of old grocery items, or the shots of the old style gas stations. Fun is the best way to describe these movies. Great Stuff.

This is a collection of obscure drive-in flicks that's complete with loads of extras. The films vary in quality and explicitness; some are very explicit while a couple are tame. You get 4 individually packaged DVDs, but one of the DVDs is a massive collection of trailers of other films available from Something Weird Video. I don't think that any of these films will appeal to most mainstream horror fans,

THE BEAST THAT KILLED WOMEN
This is an extremely low budget 60s nudie film about a gorilla(it's nothing more than a guy literally wearing a cheap Halloween ape costume) attacking nude women at a 60s nude resort. There's a lot of nudity that's limited to topless and rear scenes, and the film has no gore and a low body count. Some of the films scenery is pretty good, and the movie isn't action packed. It lacks suspense and is nice and easy to follow. With the exception of some parts, the tone of the film is usually somewhat relaxing because of the films locations. I thought the directing was OK, but the film drags in parts. However, the film is short; It's over with quickly, and I like these drive-in trash films, so I wasn't that bored. The DVD quality on the film is great.

MONSTER OF CAMP SUNSHINE
This is a black-and-white movie about a guy becoming a madman when he drinks a toxic chemical. There's no gore, and it has a low body count. There's nudity, but it's limited to topless and rear scenes. This film is well directed, and it moves at a decent pace. I'm not a fan of black-and-white horror, but I thought this one was entertaining. The film is really low budget, and the DVD quality is very good

NIGHT OF THE BLOODY APES
This is a really trashy gore flick from the 70s.
