"This is a good value DVD with three films instead of the usual one! All are in full screen and only 'Creature' has a Dolby Digital mix. The picture quality on all three films is pretty rough but watchable and better than any video version you are likley to have. The extras are talent bios which which are better than nothing.Creature: This one has the highest production values and is basically a rip off of Alien and Night of the Living Dead. The acting and script are pretty good but I found it all a bit boring to be honest!
Track of the Moon Beast: Oh dear, this film is pretty lame in all departments from the totally shocking special effects on the meteor to the terrible acting of the female lead. Man she is really kak. But the whole thing has a sweet little charm which makes it just entertaining for fans of kitsch.
Snowbeast: This is the one I bought this DVD for. I remember seeing this as a kid and it still kicks! Basically imagine the plot of Jaws translated to a ski resort and a shark replaced by a man in a yeti suit and your there. With great music, decent acting and a pretty good script it's the pick of the bunch. (although the colour on the DVD is pretty messed up in places)2 of the three stars in my rating for this DVD come for Snowbeast alone!
This DVD is definately worth a look for fans of low budget rip-off cinema like me, but if you are a multiplex popcorn muncher who likes your production values high then you better give it a miss."
3 VERY CAMPY B CREATURE-FEATURES FOR THE PRICE OF 1 : WHAT A

-----> ABOUT THE 3 FEATURE FILMS IN THIS DVD SET:
Inside a single disk DVD case you will get 3 films on 1 side. That does not sound promising, yet it plays well, certainly as good or better than their VHS counterparts. I know this, because I have these films on VHS and they are pretty fuzzy, dark transfers on VHS. On DVD all three films play and sound pretty good, although the pictures are a bit dark and fuzzy, probably from the manner in which they were filmed more than anything else. For instance, 'Creature' is literally always playing with very dimly lit sets. No DVD regardless of the transfer quality is going to improve on poor lighting or camera work in the first place. Having said that, each one of these films is watchable and without any major complaint.

"Good to get bonus of 2 extra movies. Snowbeast was a movie been wanting to see since a kid and it did not disappoint. Not for everyone - a bit cheesy but enjoyable. Creature like an early type alien movie. OK."
