An OK DVD!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Spook Louder is an OK DVD. One thing I don't like about it is that there are too many Shemp episodes. If they were going to release a Shemp DVD, Columbia should have released better episodes like "Crime On Their Hands", "Who Done It?", and "Tricky Dicks". Those are hilarious Shemp episodes. The only good Shemp episodes on this DVD are "Shivering Sherlocks" and "Mummy's Dummies". The other three are good, but there are better Shemp episodes out there. "Spook Louder" is a great Curly episode. Of course, I'm a Curly fan. But I also like Shemp. I am just very picky with Shemp episodes. I like every Curly episode except "Restless Knights". Overall, this is a pretty good DVD. There are just three episodes that are a little on the weak side. So, if you're a big stooge fan who likes Shemp, then this DVD is right for you."
Shemp on DVD, and it's about time!
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Shemp Howard proudly makes his DVD premiere with The Three Stooges with three of his best comedies: "Fright Night" (Shemp's 1st Three Stooges comedy), "Mummy's Dummies" and "Shivering Sherlocks." These three shorts alone are worth the purchase price!!! As a bonus, we're treated to two other Shemp favorites: "Hokus Pokus" and "The Ghost Talks." The title short, "Spook Louder", features Curly Howard as a member of the comedy team. Unfortunately, "Spook Louder" is not among the Stooge' best work, although it does have a few funny moments and costars Charles Middleton (Flash Gordon's Ming the Merciless)."
Only one Curly short included
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Although the cover of the Spook Louder DVD shows Curly, it is in fact the only episode with Curly in it, the rest are all with Shemp. This DVD only contains six shorts whereas the last Columbia Stooge DVD, All the World's a Stooge, had seven. While this is still a must have for Stooge fans, people that don't like Shemp might want to pass on this one. The shorts on this are: Spook Louder, Mummy's Dummies, Shivering Sherlocks, The Ghost Talks, Hokus Pokus, and Fright Night"
More classic slapstick from the Stooges

"In SPOOK LOUDER,the Stooges are hired by an inventor to sublive in his home while he takes a business trip to Washington. But they're met by three burglars in Halloween costumes. FRIGHT NIGHT(don't let the title befuddle you) is where the Stooges(Shemp's first,replacing his ill,popular brother Curly) are fight managers and are ordered by mobsters to make sure that their boxer friend,Gorilla Watson wins a fight against Chopper Kane. In SHIVERING SHERLOCKS,the Stooges inspect an estate mansion that their friend Gladys Harmon(Christine McIntyre) is selling. In MUMMY'S DUMMIES,set in Egypt,the Stooges swindle the Chief of the Palace Guards by selling him a broken down used chariot(it fell apart upon his leaving the dealership). In THE GHOST TALKS,the Stooges as movers,remove the contents of a haunted mansion but have a hard time with a live knight in shining armor. The knight leaves with his love,Lady Godiva on horseback. In HOCUS POCUS,the Stooges help their friend Mary who pretends to be a wheelchair-bound invalid in order to collect money from an insurance company. FN,TGT,HP and SS were later remade respectively as FLING IN THE RING,CREEPS,FLAGPOLE JITTERS and OF CASH AND HASH. Great moral support from Christine McIntyre,Vernon Dent,Mary Ainslee,Symona Boniface,Stanley Blystone,Phil Arnold and Kenneth MacDonald."
