We all scream for Night Screams

"NIGHT SCREAMS 50 MOVIE PACK is an excellent collection of mostly-forgotten fright and suspense films that's sure to please all vintage movie fans.
Some NIGHT SCREAMS trivia:
THE GHOST AND THE GUEST was written by funnyman Morey Amsterdam (of THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW).
A SHOT IN THE DARK has been used as a movie title on eight separate occasions.
THE FACE AT THE WINDOW is the name of a dozen different movies.
THE TELL-TALE HEART is the repetition winner however, having been used as a title for 21 films! This 1960 version is not an adaptation of the Poe short story of the same name. The only connection to Poe might be the lead character, who just happens to be called Edgar.
MANFISH, on the other hand, was actually based on the writings of Edgar Allan Poe.
Ava Gardner appearing together with those goofy Bowery Boys? Yes, it's not only true, but the fellas were given top billing in GHOSTS ON THE LOOSE.
MILL CREEK value-priced collections offer generally good audio and video transfers of public domain material. If you think you'd enjoy these films, then their SUSPENSE 50 MOVIE PACK may also be of interest to you.

"I just want to point out that most, if not all, the movies are also included in 250 pack from the same company. I checked this movie by movie :) Depending on your purchase plan, that one might represent better bargain."
A wide variety

"What's unusual about this collection is the somewhat strange variety of types and ages of movies featured. You get some really old (1930s and 40s) films like "A Face in the Fog" and "A Shot in the Dark", then some newer (1970s) movies like "Grave of the Vampire" and "Carnage". Some of the older ones I would definitely not call horror- more like crime drama. It is fun to watch the old ones just to see what really old movies were like. Some of them, such as "Bloody Pit of Horror", are the kind of cheesy B-movie/ soft porn productions that are so silly they're fun.
There's nothing really great here, but I'd say it's worth buying for the value and the fact that there are so many old, hard-to-find movies here."
Better than the cover art.

"Most of these movies are old 1930's/'40's/'50's "B" movies. If you like poverty row stuff, you'll probably enjoy most of this box set. Otherwise, try the original 50 Horror Classics box. Also, there are three graphically violent movies from the 1970s and 1980s on the 4th disc,so watch out-they're pretty gross."
