DVD Review “100 Greatest Horror Classics – Horror Classics + Legends of Horror”

Starring: Vincent PRice, Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr., Christopher Lee and Alfred Hitchcock
Number of discs: 24
Distributed by: Mill Creek Entertainment
MPAA Rating: Not Rated
Release Date: July 10, 2012
Running Time: 7600 minutes

Our Score: 4 out of 5 stars

When I saw this release titled “100 Greatest Horror Classics”, I had no choice but to request it to review. It just screams my name. Being a horror buff, I love all things horror and that including this. This release is split into two sets of 50 films including “Horror Classics” and “Legends of Horror”. Let me start by telling you they are not the best transfers of these films but nonetheless, they are 100 of horror greatest films together in one place and that is enough for me. The packaging could have used a little extra loving as the each set includes a jumbo DVD case, both which are held together by one long slipcover. Inside each DVD case are individual DVD sleeves with 12 dual discs. There are two films per side/per disc, obviously totally 50 films per set. I suggest you pick a rainy day put in disc 1 and have yourself a day-long marathon.

So before you get overwhelmed the fact that there are 100 films to watch. Let me throw out a quick number…7600. That is the amount of minutes of horror greatness included in this set. If that doesn’t make you run out and pick this up then nothing will. This release even includes a few films that I have never heard of or seen, so I was very excited about that as well.  Mill Creek Entertainment is known for releasing these amazing box sets. They also have a sci-fi themed release as well that I am looking forwarding to reviewing called “100 Greatest Sci-Fi Classics – Sci-Fi Classics + Sci-Fi Invasion”. Keep a look out for that review as well. From cinematic greats to genuine obscurities, this wonderful collection of films easily offer months of entertainment in a single release.

While I not going to give an individual review for each film, as I sure you’ve seen these films already.  I will point on some of the notable titles that I really enjoyed.  I grew up watching the following titles: The Brain That Wouldn’t Die (1962), Carnival of Souls (1962), Dementia 13 (1963), Horror Express (1972), House on Haunted Hill (1959), The Last Man on Earth (1960), The Little Shop of Horrors (1960), Metropolis (1927), Night of the Living Dead (1968), Nosferatu (Silent) (1922) and of course The Phantom of the Opera (Silent) (1925).  I am very happy to be able to have them all in one place.  I also am looking forward to introducing all of these titles to my own daughter…but not for a few years since she is only three months currently.  I will be re-visiting these titles quite often and I look forward to future installments.

Here are the complete list of the 100 titles including in this fantastic release:

3D Blu-ray Review “Titanic: 100 Years in 3D”

Presented by: The History Channel
MPAA Rating: Not Rated
Distributed by: A&E Home Video
Release Date: August 14, 2012
Running Time: 45 minutes

Our Score: 3.5 out of 5 stars

To commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the events that occurred with the Titanic.  “Titanic: 100 Years in 3D” contains powerful untold stories of passengers and crew combined with amazing 3D HD imagery.  It gives us a unique view of the event of the Titanic in a way never before possible. The History Channel delivers yet another amazing 3D Blu-ray release.  My only main issue is that I would have loved this to be a little longer, only running at about 45 minutes.

Back in 2010, an expedition lead by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and RMS Titanic, Inc. went on location to document the entire wreck site of Titanic.  This wasn’t your typical dive though since it includes high-resolution optical video, sonar, acoustic imaging, and 3D HD video and acoustic modeling. To match these amazing visuals they are accompanied by the untold stories of people who were on the ship, narrated in voice-over by actors.

The 1080p 3D transfer looks awesome and really adds a lot of depth.  The film is presented in aspect ratio of 1.78:1.  I personally didn’t see James Cameron’s “Titanic” in 3D when it was re-released this year.  I know that this release won’t match the quality of the 3D but it sure looks great to see the Titanic presented in 3D. The audio contains an Dolby Digital 5.1 track, which sounds impressive.  The only special features for this release are English, Dutch, German, Polish, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Spanish Subtitles…if you consider that a special feature.
