"CONTENTS of BEYOND SPACE AND TIME 4 Movie Pack:
KILLERS FROM SPACE is the odd man out here as it's a half century older than the other three titles and in b&w. Directed by Billy Wilder's brother William (confused?) and starring Peter Graves, this is the story of an accidentally killed scientist who's revived by aliens so that he can spy on some atomic tests for them.
NEOPHYTES AND NEON LIGHTS-- Aussie-set tale of a futuristic Sydney and five unemployed individuals trying to survive in the city's underground.
PIZZA WARS-- College-made comedy about two overweight pizza delivery guys who find a genie in a water pipe and use it to combat a corporation trying to monopolize the entire pizza industry. Loved by the film's participants, disdained by most others.
WAITING FOR THE GIANTS-- This allegorical anti-prejudice message movie is the slightest of a strange bunch. A rather tall fellow goes on the run after cops murder his wife. In his travels the giant meets up with other bizarre people and they all bond.
BRENTWOOD's 4-fers are nicely priced movie bundles. Video and sound quality of these digitally unrestored public domain films is generally fine. Discs are dual-side recorded.
TIME TRAVELERS is another "themed" BRENTWOOD sci-fi 4 movie pack.
Parenthetical numbers preceding titles are 1 to 10 viewer poll ratings found at a film resource website.

"Like so many of the sci-fi compliations from this company, this one aims to please the die hard B-movie sci-fi fan. The four films on this DVD set are:
"Pizza Wars" (2002)
"Waiting for the Giants" (2000)
"Killers from Space" (1954)
"Neophytes & Neon Lights" (2001)
As they say, if you like movies featuring futuristic societies, genies who emerge from bongs and psychic mutants who can see into the future then this is for you."
