"CONTENTS of SKINNED ALIVE 4 Movie Pack:
DEMON SUMMER-- Directors Andrew and Lucas Campbell both have roles in this gruesome story of a girl's murder that's gone unsolved for two decades and the curious high schoolers who inadvertantly set off more violence. Low budget amateurish imitation of Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead."
MIDNIGHT SKATER-- Another gang of nosy kids tries to solve an on-campus murder. Written and directed by (guess who?) the Campbell brothers, who again appear.
SKINNED ALIVE-- A clan of backwoods crazies skins their victims before killing them.
SOMETHING TO SCREAM ABOUT-- The best item here is this documentary about nine 'B' grade horror movie actresses. Includes interviews, rare footage, photos and lots of film clips.
SPAWN OF THE DEVIL 4 Movie Pack is another collection of indie horror flicks that you might enjoy.
BRENTWOOD's 4-fers are nicely priced movie bundles. Video and sound quality of these digitally unrestored public domain films is generally fine. Discs are dual-side recorded.
Parenthetical numbers preceding titles are 1 to 10 viewer poll ratings found at a film resource website.
