THE BABYSITTER: If this is what babysitters were like in the 60's then my Dad was one lucky son-ofa-gun. Nowadays you're likely to get a 14 year-old asthmatic, vegetarian, environmentalist with braces. Anyhoo, this is one groovy movie from the 60's. The D.A. of Smalltownsvilleburg lives a pretty sucky life, what with his beeyotchy wife, newborn son and "precocious" lesbian teen daughter. Poor dude really needs a break! He gets one in the pleasing form of free-spirited, hippie babysitter Candy. One thing leads to another and the old D.A. and the young babysitter end up having an affair. It could have ended up all unicorns and rainbows except for one thing. The D.A. is prosecuting a biker for murder, and when the biker's gal pal finds out about the D.A.'s little DAliance, she decides to blackmail the D.A. into letting her boyfriend out of jail! Directed by Billy Jack!

BLOODLUST!: A poor man's Most Dangerous Game knock-off starring Mr. Brady himself, Robert Reed! It's pretty inept although if you like the idea of seeing Mr. Brady stalked by a gun toting lunatic then this might be for you.

CARNIVAL OF CRIME: An old fuddy duddy architect comes home to find his hussy of a wife missing. Turns out she was murdered and the police consider him the #1 suspect. While trying to prove his innocence he learns that she has cheated on him many, many, many times. (That should speed up the grieving process!) If this wasn't shot in a cool looking 60's Brazil it wouldn't be worth watching.

THE CRATER LAKE MONSTER: I have a soft spot for giant monster movies with stop motion animation. As such I'll generously describe this one as "Abbott and Costello meet the Loch Ness Monster". Remember I'm being generous.

This is a great set Horror High, the Crater Lake Monster, Creeping Terror, Land of the Minotaur are all a lot of fun and the whole set is less than the price of any one of these campy classics individually. The prints are all complete and of a good watchable quality, I'm glad I added this to my collection even though I already had several of the movies on other sets, for me Horror High and the Crater Lake Monster alone are worth the price of admission here, and the rest is sweet retro gravy on my cheesy entrée.

Until I saw THE BABYSITTER, I was never sure if exploitation films, whatever they may be, were worth the time. But this little slice of depravity has made me a believer--a 1969 relic that might belong to some pre-code era all its own, just before both "softcore" and American indie cinema cleaned things up a bit for mass consumption. THE BABYSITTER has provocative and offensive (under-age) nudie scenes of the most heralded sort. It has considerable violence, one sequence of which occurs an hour into the film and rivals the verite shock of the murder scenes in LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT (which came out 5 years later). There are a number of young women who cannot seem to keep their shirts on, whether by the pool or in the sauna, in the woods or in the car, all of whom are unvarnished and attractive. Irrelevant subplots and implausible plot twists involving lesbians and bikers abound, but meanwhile, the principals Patricia Wymer (as The Babysitter) and George E. Russell (as the middle-aged seductee) are what the movie is all about, and they deliver much joy. I have watched it twice and I'm still not sure how they got away with what they showed in this movie. See it immediately and then join the Patricia Wymer fan club!

It is odd to find a collection of schlock movies that does not contain at least one I have already seen or own. But it seems that somebody acquired a bunch of 60's -70's Crown International losers. I've not watched them all, but they are representative of the genre. Parents, please note that a lot of these drive-in flicks contained a fair amount of nudity (for the time) and that these should probably not be given to children. Although I am sure that 10 year old boys would be thrilled.

A total of vintage 12 movies. I viewed it quite impatiently. Movies as to lighting and plot were below average. I didn't like it at all.
No individual review on each movie is hereby stated for attention.

Good because this set is full of it. Not all of it is horror. I love a cheesy old horror movie, cheesy thrillers leave a little less to be desired. For the right price collections like these are worth it if one movie is worth watching more then once, possibly even worth it if you only watch each one once.

I bought this DVD so I could watch "The Hearse". It happened to come with 11 other scary movies. Not for kids. Some of the movies have nudity. Jay "Dennis the Menace" North stars in one as a teen who has an affair with his teacher. "The Babysitter" is from the early 1960's, b&w, and must have been an old stag movie. Robert Reed (the dad on 'The Brady Bunch') stars in one of them when he was quite young and not a bad actor. Most of my "terror" came from wondering what kind of movie was gonna come on next!

This grab bag of B-Rate cult classics was released by Mill Creek Entertainment in 2010 (it was re-released in smaller packaging). And I have to say that this is one of their better releases. The "Cheese" is there. And the overall quality is way better with this particular 12 pack than in others. On can enjoy this over & over again
