    First off, I have not seen all 50 movies, only about 28 so far. But I have some opinions on this package already. The movies come on 12 double-sided DVDs with the contents clearly marked on the inner ring of each disc. Each DVD comes in a cardboard sleeve with the movie’s description printed on it. The menus are basic, scene selection is awkward but if you just want to watch the whole movie, it works fine. The quality of the picture and sound vary considerably. Some of the movies are a bit blurry with muddy sound and some missing frames, but all were watchable to me. Some of the movies are outstandingly clear both in picture and sound, such as ‘Beast of Yucca Flats’ (which may be the worst movie I have ever seen).
    The silent movies have a musical soundtrack, but it doesn’t really go with the action. “Doctor Jekyll & Mr. Hyde’, for instance, sounds like someone put a Bach organ recital CD on and just let it play. I don’t understand why ‘Metropolis’ was included in a horror package, but it’s a good movie.
    I know I sound as if I didn’t like this set, but I have found it very entertaining and there is more variety to the selections than I expected. There are some real standouts, such as ‘Carnival of Souls’ that make this set worthwhile if you are of a mind to enjoy old movies.
    I rated it three stars because the quality of the transfers could be improved on quite a bit; but really if you factor in the price, it is an enormous bargain. I plan to get several of the other 50 movie sets.

    I purchased this 50 DVD box set this past autumn (for Halloween) and have viewed all of the films. There are some GREAT CLASSICS mixed with fabulous SCHLOCK for a price that can’t be beat!Different horror genres including:Crusty, Creepy Creatures
    Descend to the depths of the deep, dark ocean and encounter the “Phantom From 10,000 Leagues” and “Creature From The Haunted Sea”. Check out the cheesy and quite primitive special effects in “The Giant Gila Monster”. Rediscover terror of dogs dressed up in fur playing “The Killer Shrews”. Hold your breath to see which hick from the backwoods will actually survive “The Attack of the Giant Leeches”! Also the great “The Hunchback Of Notre Dame” with the fabulous Lon Chaney, Jr., “The Gorilla”, “Swamp Women”, “Atom Age Vampire”, “Beast Of yucca Flats”, “Black Dragons”, “Invisible Ghost”, “The Vampire Bat” with Fay Wray, “White Zombie” with Bela Lugosi and “The Bat” With Vincent Price!Majorly Maddening Madmen
    Descend into insanity and weird funereal rites in Francis Ford Coppola’s first full-length feature “Dementia 13”. Be astounded at the scientific perversity of Jason Evers as he keeps the severed head of his fiancée alive in “The Brain that Wouldn’t Die”. Also includes, “Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde”, “The Monster Maker”, “Maniac”, “The Amazing Mr. X”, “The Tormented”, and “Bluebeard”.Cult Classics
    Watch when Audrey II cries “feeeed me” in “Little Shop of Horrors”. Fear for the fate of humanity as flesh-eating zombies roam the earth in Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead”. Find out what it’s like to be “The Last Man on Earth” with Vincent Price and “The Last Woman On Earth” with Robert Towne. Go to the “Carnival Of Souls” with Candace Hilligoss, even!

    Silent Horror Classics
    Watch the amazing Lon Chaney in “Phantom of the Opera”, slinking through the cellars of the Paris Opera House. Marvel at the chilling Max Schreck in “Nosferatu”, giving a truly mesmerizing performance and the classic and futuristic, “Metropolis”. AND MUCH, MUCH MORE! I highly recommend this very cool and inexpensive box set for anyone who likes classic horror, cheesy schlock, Bela Lugosi or stylings of the great Ed Wood!Happy Watching!

    To be concise and summarize – Great value! 50 movies (I paid about 25 bucks; so 50 cent movies – how can you complain?)

    Transfer quality generally awful, most but not all are slightly out of focus (won’t notice on little tv!) but watchable. If you are a perfectionist you will not want this. Some scenes from some movies have been cut but nothing major so far (have seen maybe 26-27 so far). Sound generally poor, mono, (2 were in stereo). The B&W movies generally not so bad but many of the color films have serious quality problems IMHO. All are full screen; no wide-screen (that I have seen). This is OK since all movies before 1954 were approx. FF anyway. The ideal customer wants a sample of the 20’s-60’s Horror/Mystery/Action B movies with 3-4 real classics and 15+ total duds. Still, fantastic value. Absolutely no frills. All movies have small number of selectable scenes, no trailers or ANY other stuff. Packaging is 12 d/s single layer disks each in cardboard cd-type sleeve. None of the disks in my box was scratched (maybe lucky?).
