"Except for some stock footage of Bela Lugosi's eyes, none of the "biggies" of mid-20th century horror are to be found on the BEYOND THE GRAVE 20 MOVIE PACK. Your more standard public domain fright films aren't here either. These 5 double-sided DVDs will be "new blood" for aficionados of obscurities, but for the beginning collector this one might not be the best place to start your horror movie library.
Another unusual MILL CREEK DVD set is the CHILLING CLASSICS 50 MOVIE PACK. There's a lot of famous actors here in many lesser-known films.

"I bought this set expecting average-to-poor transfers of 20 B-movies - my expections were very, very low, but so was the price and I like B-movies. Unfortunately, not all of the DVDs in this set play in any of my three DVD players at home (none of which have had problems in the past), and at least one movie has been edited, based on descriptions of the movie read elsewhere.
Some of these 20/50/100/250 movie packs get good reviews, and the drive-in one that I also bought is turning out better, but I would advise against this set due to the editing and unplayable DVDs."
