Comment: Please read before purchasing: This was NEW and the factory seal was taken off by myself for inspection. The DVD box cover was stepped on (just in a corner away from the DVDs) by the previous owner. You can see the pictures I took right next to this message. All 3 DVDs are in excellent untouched condition, however one of the inside covers got cracked at the very top edge and a small piece of the top edge of that cover broke off completely. However the cover still closes fine and the DVD holder is perfect. The other 2 covers are in perfect condition, and as I said earlier, none of the DVDs were affected from this accident.

Product Description

Cult Camp Classics Vol. 3 - Terrorized Travelers (DVD)

]]>

Amazon.com

It may be stretching things to call this trio of films Cult Classics (although Hot Rods to Hell does have its own fan appreciation website), but they provide more than enough cheap thrills and guilty pleasures to make this set irresistible to aficionados of BG (as in "so Bad they're Good") films. Whether it be Disney's Bon Voyage or Hostel: Part 2, travel has provided Hollywood with no end of horror stories. In Zero Hour (1957), it's not snakes on a plane, but tainted halibut that provides the terror, and with both pilots incapacitated by their unfortunate meal choice, it's up to traumatized pilot Ted Stryker (Dana Andrews) to overcome his "war record" and land the plane. If you're a comedy buff, then surely this scenario sounds familiar. Well, it should be familiar, and stop calling me "Shirley." This is the film that Jim Abrahams and the Zucker brothers mercilessly and meticulously spoofed in Airplane!. It's all here, right down to little Joey's visit to the cockpit (but without any references to gladiator films) and the rich dialogue the Airplane crew lifted nearly verbatim ("It's a different kind of flying altogether").

Andrews is back in the driver's seat in Hot Rods to Hell (1967), a film that loses a little something when not heard through the tinny speakers of a drive in theatre. Andrews stars as a man forced to put the brakes on the kicks-crazy hot-rodding punks terrorizing his family. "These kids have nowhere to go," a local cop stoically observes. "And they want to get there at 150 miles an hour." Laurie Mock costars as Andrews' conflicted teenage daughter who catches the leader's eye (he's tired of "stale bread" Mimsy Farmer). The dialogue is wicked cool and the overwrought acting all over the road. In short: don't let this pass you by. Andrews isn't on board in Skyjacked (1972), but we feel more confident with Charlton Heston at the controls as the no-nonsense pilot ("That man doesn't fool around," a colleague observes), whose plane is being hijacked to Moscow. The cast is a made-for-TV movie lover's dream, with Yvette Mimieux as a stewardess in peril (and Heston's former flame), Susan Dey, former football great Roosevelt Grier as a cellist, Walter Pidgeon as a senator, James Brolin as the very wired Vietnam vet, and Claude Akins providing ground control. This one's more of a bumpy ride, but the cheesy dialogue, earnest performances and soap opera developments keep Skyjacked flying high. --Donald Liebenson

I've always wanted to get all of these movies for years, and now there are coming out in one box set and at a great price. I've always loved Linda Darnell and she's in Zero Hour which the comedy Airplane is party based on. Hot Rods To Hell has Dana Andrews and Jeanne Crain who started in the 1945 State Fair. This movie has never been on DVD before. If you bought these movies on their own each is about $14.00 on Amazon.com. I don't see how you can go wrong with paying $[...] for this boxset. Thanks Warners for releasing these movies for us to enjoy in a great boxset. Thanks to Amazon.com for offering great prices.

The product was provided as advertized, and is unlike some other DVD versions of older films in that the quality is excellent, especially that for Zero Hour (which by the way, is hard to take seriously, given it is the source, almost verbatim, for the hilarious Airplane). Recommended.

These movies were so bad they were a joy to watch. I especially enjoyed Zero Hour because it is the basis for the movie Airplane. Some of the dialogue is word for word. Hot rods to Hell was so bad it was hilarious. I could watch Laurie Mock and Mimsey Farmer all day long

If you liked the movie "Aiplane!" you'll definitely enjoy "Zero Hour!" I didn't know this for a long time, but Zero Hour! is the dramatic movie that served as the basis for the early 80's comedy movie Airplane! But don't let that little bit of history dissuade you from watching (and enjoying!) Zero Hour! The movie has a story that stands on it's own and with a top-notch cast, featuring Dana Andrews and Sterling Hayden, you will not be disappointed!

Finally, the producers of AIRPLANE! are finally cutting loose Zero Hour!, the film and many others that provided funny fodder for the parody movie AIRPLANE!

Update: Just finished watching Zero Hour! It really is a very good movie in its own right but several times I couldn't stop chuckling as so many of the lines are replicated verbatim in AIRPLANE! Excellent!

As far as 'Hot Rods To Hell', which BTW stars one of my favorite actresses, the beautiful Jeanne Crain, I rate it a -5 STARS and then a +10 STARS for being so bad that it is just super great! Result? 5 STARS! Ya gotta see it to appreciate! (Or believe it for that matter)!

Skyjacked? Well, kind of like 'Airport' as it stars, well, just about everybody. What the heck; 5 STARS!

Update: This movie is a direct time warp back to 1972. The movie moves a bit slow but still glad it was included. Maybe 3.5 stars instead:)

I purchased this item because I wanted the movie "Zero Hour," the serious movie that much of "Airplane" was based on. As it turned out, it was cheaper at the time to buy this set of three movies instead of just "Zero Hour" by itself. "Zero Hour" is a great movie to watch if you like "Airplane," and it's a fairly good movie in its own right. The other two movies are less interesting, but not bad.

Great value for three movies! I bought it for "Zero Hour" but also enjoyed "Skyjacked." I don't know if I will watch the third.

Bought this to obtain "Zero Hour". Must see for anyone who likes the comedy classic "Airplane". And don't call me Shirley!
