Movie Reviews

8 is (never) enough

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Lugosi, Price and Chaney are all part of the CLASSIC HORROR COLLECTION 8 MOVIE PACK. (This set is somewhat pricey because each title is on its own disc-- totally unnecessary for the ones that run barely over an hour.)

Bela Lugosi's 1939 serial, "The Phantom Creeps" was re-edited a decade later into a feature film. Lugosi is a scientist who invents all sorts of unusual weapons-- he even discovers a way to render whole armies helpless. "Human Monster," also with Bela, is a story of a doctor committing insurance fraud and the serial killer that he controls. Lugosi himself plays the murderer in "Invisible Ghost," when a town's leading citizen is hypnotized by his wife's ghost into committing homicides.

In "Last Man..." Vincent Price is the only survivor of a nuclear holocaust, unluckily pursued by zombies out for human blood. In Price's other film here, he hosts a dinner party and offers five guests the opportunity to win $10,000 each if they can spend the night in a haunted house.

"Unnatural" is about artificial insemination and selective human breeding, a topic decades ahead of its time.

Lon Chaney plays a modern-day Frankenstein's monster in "Indestructible Man." He's an executed criminal brought back to life as a violent and seemingly unstoppable mute.

"Nightmare Castle" has a pair of murdered lovers returning to life. They seek revenge on their killer, the woman's husband.

NIGHT SCREAMS 50 MOVIE PACK is a giant box of lesser-known fright films that will keep you on the edge of your seat for many a moonless evening.
