4.0 out of 5 stars wonderful stuff 21 Aug 2008
Verified Purchase
5 films all deserve the abused term 'classic'.If you know anything about 1930's horror you won't need any recommendation to buy this collection. If you don't, the movies in the set are
Doctor X with Lionel Atwill & Fay Wray directed my Michael Curtiz with Return of Doctor X ( the only dud ).Mad Love with Peter Lorre & Colin Clive.Devil Doll with Lionel Barrymore and Maureen O'Sullivan directed by Tod Browning.Mark of the Vampire with Lugosi, Atwill, Barrymore directed by Browning and The Mask of Fu Manchu with Karloff and Myrna Loy.
Only the Return of Dr X prevents a 5 star rating but still very worthwhile

4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of horror classics. 10 July 2009
Well, the title says it all really.
Great films, although I wouldn't call "The Mask of Fu Manchu" a horror film. It's more of an Indiana Jones-type adventure flick, although starring the great Boris Karloff. Very good film, don't get me wrong, but not "horror".

But "Mad Love" (great Peter Lorre), "The Devil-Doll" (surprisingly touching), "Dr X", "Return of Dr X" and "Mark fo the Vampire" (although a disappointing ending, and "mute" Lugosi) are all true horror classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile box set 10 Jan 2013
By Johnnybluetime VINE VOICE

This contains one action adventure and five horror movies made by MGM and Warner Bros between 1932 and 1939.They are mostly decent prints and good sound.Great casts,which include Lugosi,Karloff,Barrymore,Atwill and Colin Clive.My personal favourites in the box are Mark Of The Vampire with Bela Lugosi,which has a great atmosphere and is really creepy,and The Mask Of Fu Manchu,which is a rollicking,albeit racist,adventure yarn with Boris Karloff as a particularly sinister Fu Manchu.Lionel Barrymore is very good in Devil Doll and is nightmarishly creepy when dressed as an old woman and the sfx are very impressive.Dr X,which is in colour,is also very good and even now is quite horrific and at the time must have had a similar impact to The Evil Dead in the 80's.Mad Love with Peter Lorre is okay,well acted and a decent story,but for me it lacks something and perhaps takes itself a little too seriously.The Return Of Doctor X is poor.Obviously a B feature at best and on a par with stuff like The Mummy's Hand and The Mummy's Tomb,late period programme fillers usually starring second rate actors,although in this case it's Humphrey Bogart.That aside this box set is recommended to anyone with a love of '30's horror and,perhaps most importantly,a multi-region dvd player.

I highly recommend this set. Since critiques and synopses of the actual films are widely available elsewhere, I will confine this review to a few remarks about the product alone.

Firstly, audio/visual quality is perfectly acceptable given the age of the films in question. There is no cause for complaint as far as "watchability" is concerned. The only minor quibble would be the restoration of previously cut passages from "The Mask of Fu Manchu". These supposedly "racist" and "offensive" snippets have been restored from a source which is slightly inferior to the rest of the feature. However, this in no way affected my enjoyment of this excellent film.

The three single sided discs, each containing two features, are packaged in slim cases which are housed in a cardboard slip case. The covers of the individual cases show reproductions of the original poster art of the films concerned.

Although I was satisfied with the films and packaging, I was angered and disappointed by the fact that all of the discs were marked in some way, either by scratches or finger prints. This was particularly annoying given that the product was brand new, factory sealed and purchased from a reputable Amazon retailer. All I can say for certain is that the quality control at the plant manufacturing these DVDs is utterly lamentable. Thankfully, the discs play perfectly.
