The thrill here is SKIN

"BCI's AFTER DARK THRILLERS consists of two double-side recorded DVDs with two movies per side. Transfer quality of these unrestored films is adequate.
BLUE MONEY-- NOT the 1985 Tim Curry film. This one stars Alain Patrick as a man whose involvement in adult filmmaking is his undoing.
CLICK-- When a fashion photographer brings some models to a remote ranch to shoot some "snuff" pics, a crossdressing psycho killer "nurse" targets the girls. Slow first hour is washed away by gore afterward.
DOUBLE EXPOSURE-- The police and a shrink suspect that a fashion fotog who has recurrent nightmares of slaying his scantily-clad models may be the slasher terrorizing their city.
FRENCH QUARTER-- Bruce Davison, Virginia Mayo and all the primary actors have dual roles in this story of a girl relocated to the Crescent City for the sake of work who dreams she lives in the 19th Century. Fine jazz soundtrack accompanies this unique story.
HOT TARGET-- Titillating tale of American woman married to a Kiwi who takes up with a fellow Yank cat burglar. Story is incidental to the numerous bedroom scenes.
NIGHT CLUB-- Young couple spend their last dollar then borrow from a mobster to finish converting an abandoned warehouse into a club. When business is poor they're hard-pressed to pay back the usurious loan.
PICK-UP-- Two hippie girls hitch a ride on a cool dude's mobile home bus. The three get lost in the Everglades after some bad weather.
SEPARATE WAYS-- Great cast in this story of a bored married couple who are both having affairs.
For some gangland thrills, check out the nine films on ST. CLAIR's MOB MOVIES box set.

Poor collection of titles

"I really didn't like this collection of films. Part of the problem is that several of the films really aren't thrillers Separate Ways for example is more a domestic drama of a marriage in trouble, while Night Club is drama about trying to open a night club.
Mostly I didn't like this set because I really didn't like any of the films. In all honesty this is probably the first collection of films like this where I really didn't like any of the films enough to even contemplate watching any of them again. The best film in the set is Separate Ways, with a French Quarter a close second (its ruined by over use of an annoying lens filter). Those were the only two of the 8 films that I actually watched all the way to the end without hitting the fast forward. The remaining six films were an endurance test for me and what was to be several nights viewing turned into a single evening marathon as I scanned through this truly poor collection of films. After the third bad film I just wanted to find a thriller that I was going to make the effort worth it. None of them really are.
I know that the cost of the set is rather cheap, but unless you have a reason for looking for one of the films included I'd take a pass and pick up another set instead. Frankly I only paid five bucks for this and to be perfectly honest I feel ripped off."
Interesting but not well done

"Unfortunately the quality of the physical media is poor, and copies with one side of one DVD blank are found, gaps where the recording were not well recorded show up, and since the company that made the product sold that line to another company that does not support it, you may get a good set of not too great movies, or you might get a not so good set of not too great movies. Even missing part of the material the set is worth more than most of the used copies sell for, and it is NOT the seller's fault that there are issues with the original manufacture.
