Movie Reviews

Not His Best Work
Terry D. Robertson | Asheville, NC USA | 11/17/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"With the exception of "The Ape" and "The Mr. Wong Series", the remaining movies are unknown. All the flicks in this package are "B" movies, some cheaper than the others. The color movies are washed out with horrid sound with the exception of the well-known "The Terror", Karloff made towards the end of his career. Included is an old serial with poor picture and sound (but interesting to watch), several silent movies (the best being "The Last of the Mohicans") and several gems. During the Depression we had three famous Chinese detectives (all played by non-orientals), Charlie Chan, Mr. Moto (Japanese) and Mr. Wong. The Mr. Wong series of the late 30's was made by a poverty row Studio, Monogram and didn't receive the recognition the Chan and Moto movies did. Karloff made 5 and became bored and left. These 5 movies are included throughout the 4 discs. The quality and sound are far superior to a special Mr. Wong set, I bought sometime back. Another Monogram flick, "The Ape", is stunningly preserved.

Karloff was the true movie monster but underneath some his most famous creations, was a highly cultured and kind man. This inexpensive box set gives us an example that he could play non menacing roles. He is mainly remembered for creating the Frankenstein Monster and The Mummy. But he an incredibly fine actor that was misused and stereotyped by Hollywood and rarely given a chance to display show his consummate acting ability. In all his villainous roles, he managed to convey empathy.

Karloff was not just the King of Horror, but a talented and highly skilled professional. He even manages to overcome some of the pretty rotten material presented here in this box set."
One sweet deal on Karloff rarities

"The cool thing about this set, in my opinion, are the early silent films in which Karloff appeared. I picked up this set for $5 brand new and am most gratified because it has greatly enhanced my Karloff collection! Here are the films in this box set:

The Last of the Mohicans (s)
His Majesty The American (s)
Dynamite Dan (s)
The Bells (s)
The Ape
The Terror
The Veil (tv; 3 episodes)
The Snake People
Island Monster
Doomed To Die
The Fatal Hour
King of the Wild
Dick Tracy Meets Grusome
The Mystery of Mr. Wong
Mr. Wong-Detective
Mr. Wong in Chinatown

You can't go wrong with this collection--one of the best deals around on Karloff's films!"

"You think well this is just to damn old to appreciate. Well wine is not the only thing that gets better and Karloff is another. I love everything about this set. Quality seems excellent and will continue to enjoy these titles a long time I hope."
