3/4 Of A Good Deal...

"OK, 4 movies for the price of one can't be bad, right? Well... Disc #1 features HORROR RISES FROM THE TOMB, a sadistically entertaining creeper about a satanic couple who come back to haunt the descendants of their executioners. Lots of blood. Tons of nudity. Paul Naschy plays a dual role as the chubby good guy and the chubby bad guy. Next up is ZOMBIE FLESH EATERS, a flat, dull, hideously acted pile of doggy-do. The zombies are not menacing or even remotely scary. They are shambling halloween skeletons from K Mart! Their "ghost ship" is a miniature boat, so horridly filmed, that I laughed out loud every time they showed it bobbing along! Disc #2 starts out with ZOMBIE HELL HOUSE (aka: House By The Cemetery by Fulci). This movie has it's high points as well as crashing lows. The gore is over-the-top, as is Fulci's way. The acting is mediocre. I did like Dr. Freudstein, the zombie in the basement. He's well done, but there's not nearly enough of him! And that kid was more annoying than an icepick to the forehead! Finally, we have NIGHT OF THE GHOUL. I like this flick! Lotsa murder and mayhem. Gore galore. Peter Cushing seems befuddled and in pain. John Hurt is good as the nutty guy in the shed. I got some genuine scares out of this one. Also, characters died that I figured would save the day. All in all, worth the cheap price..."
Don't listen to those other "elitist" reviewers

"Hey, for "the money" what do you think you're getting, Citizen Kane??? And besides, these are zombie movies, like they're going to have excellent plots and superb character development. Get real. Grab some friends and watch a couple of "bad" movies and make fun of them."
Only a true horror fan would notice!

"The third movie in this collection (Zombi at Hell House) is a Lucio Fulci classic.....if purchased alone it would cost much more than all four of these together."renamed" (look it up.....The House By The Cemetery) With that included along with a Peter Cushing film, most of which impossible to find, who could complain? If you call yourself a true horror fan you should be ashamed for slighting Cushing or Fulci.
One of the films is part of a four part series of films. Zombie Flesh Eaters is actually one of the Blind Dead films by director AMANDO DE OSSORIO called The Ghost Galleon. Watch Tombs Of The Blind Dead first in the series to have a greater appreciation of this film."
And bile rises from the throat

"Whoh boy. Firstly, I must say that in getting four movies for ten dollars, I'd didn't expect The Ring and the Sixth Sense. But not even I could have suspected the true horror. Oh dear God, someone help me.#1. Horror Rises From the Tomb. In the tradition of great films like Burial Ground "The Night of Terror", Doctor Butcher M.D., Zombie Lake and Night of the Zombies, we have this instant classic. A bunch of decadent slouches decide to head to out their villa, and try to solve the case of the beheaded satanist ancestor. Maybe they would have had a chance if they had the rest of Scooby and the gang with them. They killed the prettiest girl in the movie, the maid, in like twenty minutes, and from there the movie really goes downhill. Thank God they had Thor's Hammers (a Tutonic icon) to protect them from Satan!#2. Zombie Flesh Eater. Okay, firstly, your biggest star is Professor Brown from Pieces---who may or may not be the WORST ACTOR IN THE UNIVERSE. The movie is about a ghost ship, inhabited by the zombies. But they're not zombies! They are the same plastic skeletons with goatees from Tombs of the Blind Dead!!! The same exact ones. They are not zombies, and they do NOT eat flesh at any time in the movie.#3. Zombie Hell House. Oh no, no, no. This is the clumsily-disguised House by the Cemetary, complete with "the Researcher", Bob and Ann, Ann and Bob, Bob and Ann. Gives you one more chance to see super-zombie Fruedstein staggering his way through one wacky misadventure after another. The fun never ends. There's alot of house, a little hell, but very little zombie.#4. Night of the Ghoul. I know, this sounds like an Ed Wood movie, but it isn't. It's a touching journey that includes car races, lots and lots of fog, female captives and Peter Cushing. You only see "the ghoul" in the last few minutes of the movie, and it's a flabby bald blue guy in a skirt. Don't ask me. And I don't know where they got the whole "ghoul" thing, because pretty much all he does is stab people and then stagger back into his room."
