"When I'm writing this review Amazon has not yet posted a listing for the titles for the set. I've been looking around the internet for some clue as to what titles are included in this set it appears that seven of the titles are as follows:
Jungle Virgin Force (Awful film about a lost tribe in the jungle)
Hell Hole (Women are kidnapped to serve as sex slaves for mercenaries.A perfect example of a real grindhouse film. Its not bad, not great, but not bad)
Ghost Ninja (Godfrey Ho cut and paste job of new and old footage-its one of the worst films ever made-and not in a good way)
Temple of Hell (Good, but mindless adventure film ala Indiana Jones)
Cannibal Curse (Fair black magic film with midgets)
Dog Called Vengeance (Very good existential tale of a political prisoner on the run)
Scorpion Thunderbolt (More Godfrey Ho cut and paste about a killer snakeman)
Which means its Video Asia has once again repackaged their Tales of Voodoo discs under another name (there are five double features released separately and together- If this is the case the missing films would then be Devil's Express a Chinese Horror Film thats a gory black magic tale, The Rapist another Chinese film about the hunt for the title character which is nasty and uninteresting, and the Primitives which is another Jungle film about a lost tribe.It starts out okay and then goes down hill)
If this is the case the films are a very mixed bag. Some have subtitles burned into the film,some are oddly letterboxed, many are worn and all are no doubt from VHS tape copies. The films are a mixed bag (see above for one line reviews) and are for the most part something to rent rather than own. Having picked up every other Grindhouse Experience set I would say this is the worst of the lot simply because the number of poorer films is so high (all of the other sets in the series are worth purchasing if you know the sets limitations). If you do pick this up do it as cheaply as possible.
(If I am in error and the titles I describe here are not the titles in this set, please disregard the review.)"
Do not buy this item. Seriously.

"No stars. I did not buy this from Amazon. Seriously, this collection is not worth one dollar. The video transfer is terrible. Sequences are completely dark and unwatchable.
So far, stick with at least the first series in the Cult Classic Drive In collection. I got one of those for less than ten dollars and so far it has been much more enjoyable than this collection.
If anyone here gives this a good recommendation, the person must be a sales person for the company.
