Horror Classics, Vol. 5 2003 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Transfer quality of ECHO BRIDGE 4 movie packs is quite good, although film stock is not always in the best of condition. A bargain price also makes these small collections attractive. All titles are contained on a single disc.
The highlight of this fifth edition is Mario Bava’s great 1966 film, “Kill, Baby Kill.” Also included is Bela Lugosi’s only “in color” starring role.
SYNOPSES for “Horror Classics V.5”—
GOOD AGAINST EVIL— A writer and exorcist join forces to battle a devil worshipping group. Antiseptic pilot for an undeveloped TV series features a decent cast mired in mediocrity.
KILL, BABY… KILL!— Women are being murdered in a small Transylvanian village, and the local sorceress believes the ghost of a slain girl is somehow responsible.
SCARED TO DEATH— Beautiful woman who died of fright tells how it happened as she lies in the mortuary. Stars two greats of 1930s horror—Bela Lugosi and George Zucco.
SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT— Set in a New England village. On Christmas Eve, an asylum inmate escapes, taking refuge in a delapidated, abandoned mansion. He commits atrocities on the locals he lures to his hideout.
HORROR CLASSICS V.6 offers up two vintage made-for-TV fright films. Also included is some Euro-horror and a debate between Jehovah and Lucifer.
