The collection is filled with fantastic trailers of both well known and lost cult gems of the golden age of horror movies. Though not digitally restored like they are on the Second Edition Universal Legacy Collection DVDs, their quality is just worn enough that they look great but are still watchable.
Honestly, it's flimsy. The box itself is wafer-thin and should be treated with care; its only purpose is to look cool as the box art is wonderful. The DVD cases are not much better. They too need to be opened and closed with care, and have fantastic box art. Their width is just under half of a regular DVD keep case so you can't transfer them to a blank one and slip the original DVD cover into the sleeve. But as long as you're careful nothing should happen.
Though Amazon claims there are no special features, there are. On volume no.2, there is an alternative audio selection with a bonus music soundtrack, plus two old time radio horror pieces called "The Creaking Door" and "The Strange Dr. Weird"; each roughly half and hour long. On volume no.3, there is also an alternative audio selection with bonus music soundtrack, as well as an incredible interview with Belo Lugosi leaving rehab about battling with drug addiction in 1955. His words are very sobering and eye opening.
This is a great collection that any fan of classic horror would love and want to add to their collection. If you have the time and the money, you can set it up to have all of these DVDs play on separate TVs to enhance the mood at your Halloween party. That's what I plan on using them for.
This is a unique collection that you won't find anywhere else and is worth the money. Highly recommend it.
The quality is as good as you can expect from the original film sources. These weren't high quality films when they were made, so don't expect Criterion editions of the trailers. Just lean back and enjoy the cheese.
