    quality is extremely piss poor. imagine using 4th or 5th generation VHS tapes. that's what they look like, some even worse. i can understand beat up prints, but fuck, they didn't even use prints (well, on a title or two it appears they used 16mm, but i'm not really sure).

    Reminds me of the quality on those Tales Of Voodoo sets. Some of them are plain unwatchable, literally, as they skip around and have constant visual glitches. I'll wait on that set you mentioned... Haha.

    Sweet. Do all copies of One Dark Night have a piece of film?

    I have this on order solely for MFDR (because I get the sets cheaper than the individual movies most of the time). I don't know if I'll like the other two.

    I picked up the Cannibal Lunchbox for myself for Xmas since Warlock Moon is the last of the Joe Bob Briggs commentary discs I needed. (Anybody know why he quit doing them?) The Blood Feast 2 is the R rated so I am taking it to work to sell today...no matter, I already have the unrated.
    As for mega-sets, I am 15 movies in to a 100 DTV set called Bloody Nightmares. Most of these are Brain Damage film movies. There have been some decent movies in there (as well as one or two I tried to swallow my tongue during to stop the pain like Barely Legal Lesbian Vampires).
    Only drawback is there is a lot of pixalization and a few freeze for a second here and there. But, then again, you get what you pay for.
     
  12. Do any of these have decent a/v quality? I don't mean dvd quality, but maybe equivalent to a good vhs copy. I think these would be pretty cool, but the few times I've ventured into the budget dvd world the quality of the films have been so shitty I could barely watch them.

    It depends on which sets you're referring to. The ones with 25+ movies are usually shit quality, but the Shriek Show releases are regular DVD releases bundled together.

    I picked up the Crypt Of Terror: Horror From South Of The Border awhile back. The quality is pretty good, actually. Some are poorer VHS copies but others are pretty decent plus the movies (for the most part) rock.

    I saw a mention of that somewhere. Thanks for the details, Vlachio. I've already got the Night Of The Bloody Apes/Curse Of The Doll People DVD but I can trade that in towards the set since it's dirt cheap. The only thing setting me back is that none of these movies are from the 1980's and the movies I really liked on volume one were.

    Does anybody know how good those H.P. Lovecraft films are that are always advertised in Rue Morgue? The ones from Arkham Bazaar and Lurker Films.

    I already have all three films in the 'Grindhouse' set but I'm very curious about the SS Pack. I'll have to scoop that up.

    Sweet, I'll be getting both sets. I already own Don't Go in the House, but never got around to The Tenement.
