TALES OF TERROR is another great collection of public domain horror movies! No, these are not digitally remastered, spotless masterpieces. These are movies that are available to any company (and there are tons of them) that wants to put them out. So, why pay 10-20 times as much for the same scratchy movies?? Here's the run-down: THE WHITE GORILLA- An hour-long stinkfest about a guy in a white go-rilla suit in the jungle. Actually 2 movies spliced together! Pretty dull indeed! THE LONG HAIR OF DEATH- Barbera Steele is a vengeful ghost, out to fulfill her mother's curse. Good spooker! THE NIGHT EVELYN CAME OUT OF THE GRAVE- Horribly editted pile of offal! Barely makes sense, and Erica Blanc's infamous naked coffin dance is gone! Ugh! CONDEMNED TO LIVE- Ralph Morgan is a guy doomed to suck the life from others. A good flick! THE HEAD- Awesome german mad science spectacular about a psychotic doctor and his keeping a disembodied head alive! includes a Hunchback, strippers, and lots of bubbling chemicals! DEVIL MONSTER- Ridiculous tale of a giant man-eating manta ray on the loose. Junk! CRYPT OF THE LIVING DEAD- Andrew Prine stars as a man who must battle the queen of the vampires to help solve his father's murder. Not bad. CHLOE, LOVE IS CALLING YOU- Absolutely stoooopid story about a voodoo lady and her attempts to stop a romance. THE PHANTOM OF SOHO- German murder mystery w/ a golden-gloved killer! Watch for the topless dancers and wacky prostitutes! THE APE MAN- Bela stars as a man who becomes part ape and sleeps w/ his go-rilla buddy! They also go on a killing spree together! Ok. THE SADIST- The only decent thing Arch Hall jr. ever did! He plays his serial-killing scumbag character like no other! A classic! A WALKING NIGHTMARE- Sorry, I fell asleep! A dark-house type mystery.Read more ›

When you are reading those books of film reviews (I'm talking mainly horror here) and you come across an obscure movie and think you'd love to see that - because the reviewer says it is so good, or maybe because they say it is so bad - but you think you'll never get the chance, well these 50 Movie Packs are probably the best chance you'll get to see some of those movies. I have 5 of these sets Horror, Science Fiction, Chillers, Nightmare Worlds as well as Tales of Terror. I bought them to see some of the aforementioned movies at a reasonable price. Some of the films on these sets can be purchased in better versions but they are more expensive. If you like one or more of the movies here you can buy a better version later. Anyone expecting razor sharp images, perfect colour and high quality sound should look elsewhere - you get what you pay for with these sets. The quality varies from good to awful, but I've yet to find a title that was so bad, picture or sound wise, that it was unwatchable. So if you can live with imperfection these packs are worth a look - and, to be honest, anyone who pays this price for 50 movies and claims to be disappointed, deserves to be.
