Big Monsters = Big Fun

"Here's a real treat for us classic monster and sci-fi fans. Check out that cover art--it's a replica of an Aurora plastic model kit that many of us recall from childhood.Fifty creature feature trailers will keep you occupied for awhile. Among the highlights: KING KONG, SON OF KONG, THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS, MOTHRA, IT CONQUERED THE WORLD, THEM, DESTROY ALL MONSTERS, THE BLOB, THE KILLER SHREWS (darn funny trailer). Many, many more, including the wonderful Sinbad films.As you might expect, the quality of the clips varies greatly. Overall, the picture and sound quality is acceptable. The 1950's nuclear safety film is a hoot!If you like these kind of films, you really should add this one to your collection. Even if you could never sit through some of cheesy flicks represented here, the trailer compilation is a fun party disc. Recommended."
Ruined by very poor source materials

"This is a great collection, I find trailers like these hilarious, the outrageous headlines, the over the top commentaries just crack me up. The only problem with this collection is that they've been sourced from very poor material, no effort at all has been made in restoring them. I've seen some of these in a lot better condition on other DVDs. If some sort of restoration effort had of been made I would rate this 5 stars, until then it only gets 2. I hope next time they release a collection that concentrates on 1950's and 1960's B-grade science fiction trailers with an effort made in restoring them."
The Monsters Are Loose!

"ALL MONSTERS ATTACK! is a great collection of sci-fi/horror trailers and extras: Movies that "baby boomers" like myself remember watching on TV and in theaters as a kid! Giants and human-sized monsters run rampant!The overall quality is excellent, keeping in mind the source material is not digitally remastered. There are but a few trailers that are really lacking in picture and sound quality, but the contents of this DVD are priceless! B-movie fans and Godzilla/Kaiju enthusiasts are in for a real treat!OPERATION PLUMBOB could have been omitted from this collection... Unless one was a student learning about nuclear energy back in the 1950's, one may find this short film rather boring. It could have been replaced by perhaps two or three more theatrical trailers, such as the one for FRANKENSTEIN CONQUERS THE WORLD. Now there's a movie that should be put on DVD! Or perhaps the trailer for VALLEY OF THE DRAGONS, which contains the classic line, "Shoot anything with hair on it that moves!"All in all, ALL MONSTERS ATTACK! is quite enjoyable. Recommended!"
