Movie Reviews

A great set for Unsolved Mysteries fans

"I always loved this show, even when the broadcast schedule became erratic after 1997 and I had to chase it all over the schedule and from network to network. Robert Stack - Elliot Ness himself - was the definitive host, and is irreplacable in the role he had. There were really two forces at work here that made the show a success. First, the producers of the show didn't put every backwoods legend that came across their desks on the air. They tried to document events and stories that could have happened. Second, Robert Stack was a great host, his trenchcoat-clad presence and dignified and sincere narration bringing respectability to each segment. Thus, no matter how fantastic something might appear on paper, it was presented as something that a rational person could believe was possible. Here is a brief synopsis of the 25-disc set:

"Unsolved Mysteries: UFOs" - Explores some fascinating extraterrestrial encounters with this segments that includes episodes devoted to alien abductions, crop circles, and the controversy surrounding Roswell and Area 51. A tribute to Robert Stack is included here. 6 hrs. on four discs.

"Unsolved Mysteries: Ghosts" - The world of the paranormal is the subject of this collection. There's a friendly ghost (not Casper), a matchmaker ghost, a court case with new homeowners suing old homeowners because they weren't told the house was haunted, and other assorted ghost tales. 6 hrs. on four discs.

"Unsolved Mysteries: Miracles" - Divine influence and angelic interventions are examined in a series of episodes that cover everything from inexplicably answered prayers, to alternative medicines, to religious visions. Not really as interesting as the others, because miracles always imply something good happens for no known reason. 6 hrs. on four discs.

"Unsolved Mysteries: Psychics" - Accounts of ESP, fortune telling, past-life regression, strange seers, and other tales of mental magic. The more interesting segments involve psychics helping the police solve crimes. 6 hrs. on four discs.

"Unsolved Mysteries: Bizarre Murders" - Focuses on some of the most notorious murders in history. Examines such infamous criminals as the Boston Strangler and the Zodiac Killer, as well as a woman possibly killed by one of her own alternate personalities, and the psychology behind well-known homicidal world leaders are among the segments in this set. 6 1/4 hrs. on four discs.

"Unsolved Mysteries: Strange Legends" - Investigates Bigfoot, what happened to famed skyjacker D.B. Cooper, skunk apes, and other such matters. Also includes segments on the legend of the Mothman, the fate of Amelia Earhart, the death of "Adventures of Superman" star George Reeves, and the strange legacy of the Bermuda Triangle. 6 hrs. on four discs.

"Unsolved Mysteries: Hidden Treasure" examining tales of lost fortune. 1 disc.

The first six DVD-sets that are part of this release have been previously released separately. The "Hidden Treasure" disc appears to be new material."
It is truely the Ultimate Collection!

"I want to start by stating that I own A LOT of tv shows on DVD. This collection is my favorite out of all of them! I can sit and watch these for hours and never get tired of watching. I think the charm of "Unsolved Mysteries" lies in it's host...Robert Stack. He sets the mood for every story. The set itself is put together very well. It covers all of the DVD's that were released on their own and an added feature of 5 new Ghost Stories and 5 Lost Treasure Stories. If you loved "Unsolved Mysteries" then this is the ultimate collection for you! I only hope that they release more someday!"
Greatest show ever.

"I freakin love Unsolved mysteries.I loved it when I was 9 years old and not much has changed. Some segments are still scarrier than 99.9% of the horror movies put out in the US over the last 20 years. The early episodes (89'-93') are a bit better then the later ones, that said there is alot to admire about the stuff they kept putting out. I think the combination of perfectly creepy music and the inflection of Robert Stacks voice is what makes these segments so chilling. The early episodes are also aided by the film stock they were shot on which gives the images a much more mirky, ghostly tone. Anyhow buy this set or at the very least rent them from netflix. All hail the Unsolved!"
Truly ultimate!

"This is a must have for any Unsolved Mysteries fan. This set contains hours of one of the best shows ever on TV. To this day it still creeps me out like it did when I was a child. The theme music to this show is the best I have ever heard, chilling. Robert Stack has a voice second only to Vincent Price for a show like this, absolutly perfect. Lots of classic favorites here about Area 51, Bigfoot, ghosts, murders, it's all here in a very nice boxset with a bonus DVD. I have long waited for a boxset of this amazing show.
