"This is the collection all us die-hard horror fans have been waiting for. It contains all the neccessaries that were hard to find on DVD before this (Nosferatu, Dr. Caligari, Night of the Living Dead) and some must-haves, such as Horror Hotel and House on Haunted Hill.
The packaging is unbelievable. As if the thick, tin case wasn't enough, they give us 5 DVD's (2 movies per) and put them in a foldable case inside the tin box. Very complex and fancy packaging.
I would HIGHLY recommend this set to any fan of horror, or any film buff interested in the roots."
Great Movies Trapped on Unusable Junk DVDs

"About a year ago, I bought this tin set thinking how great it would be to have this collection of old horror movies, especially the Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. I had to put them aside for a while because I kept on getting tied up with other things, but finally this Halloween I decided now was the opportunity I'd been waiting for. I opened up the tin, popped in the DVDs, and my nightmare began...but it had nothing to do with the scary movies purportedly on them.
Every single last DVD in this collection is broken in some way. On most of them, I can watch the first movie, but the movie frequently stuttered or paused between some scenes. The second movie could in NO WAY be accessed from a standard DVD player, leaving half of each DVD useless. On the third DVD, neither selection was playable at all.
If it had been a single DVD with a problem, I might have chalked this up to duplication error. Things like that happen. But to have an entire set of DVDs this screwed up...that bespeaks absolutely shoddy and incompetent workmanship.
Whatever you do, don't throw away your money on this set, and I'd advise you not to get near anything else that Madacy puts out if this is an example of a "deluxe set"."
