"My wife and I are both HUGE fans of the "Underworld" movies and were ecstatic to hear that "Rise of the Lycans" finally had a DVD release date. We were even happier to hear that the trilogy was being released in it's own offical Box Set.
When reading over the specifications for the box set, I noticed that the version of "Underworld" included is the R-rated version and not the UNRATED version, which is the version that I already have.
If you plan on buying this trilogy (being the purist that I am), I would recommend that, in the event you already have the UNRATED version of "Underworld", you just swap the movies over, one for the other, and get rid of the R-rated version in the triolgy box set.
In the event the version of "Underworld" contained in the box set is BOTH the UNRATED AND the R-rated (both versions in the package), you'll be fine.
Just wanted to make everyone aware of this before you purchase.
(I gave the box set 4 stars because all 3 movies are fantastic. I would have given this 5 stars if I knew for sure that the UNRATED version of "Underworld" was included in it.)
Bad DVD Case Packaging

"The 3 DVDs are stacked one on top of another and held by a single clip. I doubt it would have cost more than a cent or two to insert a plastic DVD separator page. The current packaging causes the DVDs to be easily scratched upon eachother during removal and replacement to the clip. The movies are great, but the packaging is cheaply done."
Includes Extended Cut for Underworld

"This trilogy set includes the Underworld: Extended Edition. Why make a seperate cut just for the box set (I don't think they did)? I think it's safe to say it is identical to the already released Underworld Unrated Extended edition that's out on bluray.
So if you already have the other titles, no need to buy a box set that's basically just packaging them all together.
But if you only saw one of the movies and liked it, you definately need to see the rest."
Rating the Movies/Genre...NOT the Box Set!

"Being an avid horror freak for nearly four decades now I wish to throw my two cents in...
I love them all! The classics (Dracula & Frankenstein) with such greats as Bela Lugosi and Boris Kaloff, the 80's slasher flicks ( A nightmare on Elm St; Friday the 13th, Halloween), modern day throwbacks such as The devil's Rejects (which has become one of my all time favorites...Gotta love Rob Zombie!), Two thumbs up to certain remakes such as The Texas Chainsaw massacre & Halloween (Rob again!),By the way the TCM...The beginning, is another of my favorites, and last but not least the newer kidnap/torture genre such as (Saw, Hostel, Turistas).
That being said I have always held a certain special place for monsters, Vampires & Werewolves to be precise, in my heart. Back in 1981 two legendary werewolf movies came out. Of course I'm talking about The Howling directed by Joe Dante & Creature effects by Rob Bottin and An American Werewolf in London, Directed by John Landis and Special effects by Bottins mentor Rick Baker. These two movies held the title for the best ever created until now...
The story plot & special effects make these movies, in my opinion, instant classics! A must watch for any horror/action fan. The cast is awesome with Selene (Kate Beckinsale) as the definitive heroin, a kickass Vampire with a matrix (Trinity) feel to her, coupled with an excellent portrayal by Bill Nighly (Viktor)and rounded off by Lucian (Played by Micheal Sheen).
So if you love the traditional monsters with modern day high impact, non stop action and love being dazzled by 21st century special effects , then these movies are for you...A must watch!"
