"I bought this DVD movie set just for "Silent Night, Deadly Night" but unfortunately it does not actually come with it. "Silent Night, Deadly Night" is advertised as one of the movies included in the package, but instead of getting that you actually get "Silent Night, Bloody Night," a completely different movie. This is not just a typo on the box because they even included the following movie description on the back of the box:"One cold winter's night, on the night before christmas to be exact, a young boy watches as his parents are brutally killed by a thief dressed in a Santa suit. Then, as the boy grows up in an orphanage, an ironhanded Mother Superior further bends his mind. This boy, turned psychopath, will stop at nothing to erase the hatred in his heart..."This is the description for "Silent Night, Deadly Night" so this is not just an honest mistake. BCI Eclipse LLC, the distributers of this DVD, is a deceptive company that advertises A and gives you B.Just in case anyone thinks that maybe there was a possibility of someone accidently putting the wrong DVD in the box, it's no accident. I have a friend who ordered this movie at the same time I did and he got the same thing."
I don't understand the problem here

"Some of the people who have complained about this movie below have stated that they felt the box falsely advertised. I don't understand what happened here. I bought this movie and it CLEARLY said "Silent Night BLOODY Night" on it, and it had a different film description than some of the ones listed below. Maybe there were some misprints on some editions of the collection?Anyway, I liked this set anyway. The film "Don't Look in the Basement" is a classic. It alone is worth paying [money] for the set. The other three movies aren't horrible either. You could have something to watch when you are bored at least. A-"
Not bad for its asking price....

"In order of preference:House on Haunted Hill- the entertaining Vincent Price classic, very good picture quality. This version comes with bonus trailers.Don't Look in the Basement- grainy looking pic quality of a cult classic. Very disturbing and creepy film with really good performances, but I might be biased since I find films about sanitariums unnerving anyway.(check out Amicus' anthology THE ASYLUM for a similar experience)Silent Night, Bloody Night- ah, the controversial film of the four; but only because the set says it's Silent Night, Deadly Night(it's not the 80's Santa shocker that Siskel & Ebert was so offended by decades back). This is a 70's movie that is not bad in its own right(grainy pic again). Slow yet creepy, this also has asylum and incest connections to it. Effectively disturbing flashback sequences.Satan's School for Girls- honestly have not seen this one. Saw Aaron Spelling's name in the credits...decided to turn it off. It's a 70's made for tv horror with two members of Charlies' Angels in it. When I get really bored and a nuclear holocaust wipes out all other known DVD's, I'll watch this one. Maybe.The discs have no extras with limited chapter stops and the case it came in is cheap plastic that broke(but I was able to 'snap' it back in place). Not high-quality or a must-have collection by any means, but if you're a collector and enjoy your horror movies on the low-budget, 'hidden gems', or atmospheric-type variety then this is not a bad purchase."
