A good movie set

"All of the 50 movie sets from Digital One Stop (such as this one) come in a box that has twelve double sided discs each in it's own cardboard sleeve in the center of the box.

7 of these movies I have on other DVD's & budget (EP speed) VHS tapes. The rest I have never seen. So far (I've watched the first 4 movies) picture & sound quality are fine. The 2nd movie on disc 1 side 1 (The Red House) has a slightly distorted (buzzy) soundtrack but then I have 2 other copies of the same movie on PD VHS tapes with this same problem & it doesn't distract the enjoyment of this movie too much. The spoken words are understandable. Rest of the movies (so far) sound fine. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the set!"
Hopelessly Addicted to Amazon's 50 DVD Packs

"Help! I have become hopelessly addicted to these 50 pack DVDs. And Dark Crimes Collection is the best of all of them. Sure the sound is sometimes a little tinny and the images could be sharper but you're getting such a value you don't care. And such fabulous rareties! A chance to see the cult actress Mary Beth Hughes in Inner Sanctum-- don't miss the twist ending! There are several of the greatest sleeper mysteries of all time: Fear in the Night and Strange Illusion. Those are the definition of great B films. The Chase is a rare costume adventure with a great performance by Robert Cummings. It's cut for tv but stay with it and you'll see a fine, rare film by an old personal family friend of ours, producer Ed Lasker, who did it with Anthony Mann directing. There are so many great things for the old movie and B movie buff on this DVD. I loved Half a Sinner with one of the world's least appreciated actresses, the great Heather Angel, in a breezy screwball mystery with a light touch. And don't miss the sultry (yes, I said sultry) Angela Lansbury flirting with Raymond Burr in Please Murder Me-- with another socko twist ending. These 50 packs from Mill Creek are such a great value. I hear they dredge these up out of public domain movies but I don't care. I am hopelessly addicted. I can't wait for Nightmare Worlds to come out, the next entry in the series. Thanks, Mill Creek and for all the fabulous viewing pleasure. I just want to curl up and purr with glee!"
