Herculean let down

"These are re-releases of the previous RetroMedia titles. Image Entertainment now handles the RetroMedia line. Sad to say all 4 discs are the exact same discs that have been available before. Quality is sadly lacking."
Be warned....Hercules, Prisoner of Evil is defective

"I bought this nicely priced set at a retail store for $15. I took a chance on it because it was distributed by Image Entertainment/Retromedia and I have never had a bad disc by these companies. I however hate to say it but at about the 16.20 mark on Hercules, Prisoner of Evil the film stutter skipped and then froze. I tried it on 3 different DVD players, a portable DVD player and my laptop and got the same problem. I got a replacement and it did it again. My third copy just stutter skipped but did not freeze. Sick of dealing with the problem I just got my money back. The clerk at the retail store said they have been getting a number of returns on this set and are actually thinking about taking it off the shelf (!?!). I don't know if this is widespread problem but talking to friends and relatives that also have bought the set I have found that theirs at least had the stutter skip.
For the price of this set it is still worth it to many as it is only one film in the set that is defective. Still I just want to warn you that you will likely get a set that has a bad stutter skip in Hercules, Prisoner of Evil or worse it freezes."
