WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH HELEN? Debbie Reynolds and Shelley Winters star in this stylish shocker set in 1930s Hollywood about two women who come to Tinseltown to start an idyllic new life and end up in a terrifying nightmare. Directed by Curtis Harrington (Queen Of Blood, Games), this relentlessly frightening film also stars Dennis Weaver (McCloud). THE GODSEND When a strange woman has her baby at the Marlowe's house, then disappears, Kate Marlowe is forced to keep the baby, Bonnie. She loves the child, but when her own children are systematically killed, suspicion turns to Bonnie. THE VAGRANT Bill Paxton (Aliens) and Michael Ironside (Scanners) star in this humorous psychological thriller as an ambitious young executive whose life is turned upside-down when a vagrant (Marshall Bell, Starship Troopers) moves into his neighborhood. THE OUTING (AKA The Lamp) An ancient genie is released from a lamp when thieves ransack an old woman's house. They are killed and the lamp is sent to a museum to be studied. The curator's daughter is soon possessed by the genie and invites her friends to spend the night at the museum, along with some uninvited guests.

5.0 out of 5 stars He's not just in your mind...he's in your house. 14 Nov 2013

What's the Matter with Helen? - Helen and Adelle are suffering from intense media attention and a threatening phone caller, after their sons are convicted of the brutal murder of a middle-aged woman. They decide to leave Iowa and set up a dance academy in Hollywood for young girls that dream of stardom, but the religious and unstable Helen begins to lose her mind when Adelle falls for the charms of the rich and suave Lincoln Palmer. Things get worse when Helen becomes convinced that the threatening phone caller has tracked them down.

Debbie Reynolds and Shelley Winters both give very good performances as Adelle and Helen, Winters is especially effective as Helen as we see her slowly lose her grip on reality. Dennis Weaver who is best known from TV show McCloud and the fantastic Steven Spielberg film, Duel, is really fun to watch as Lincoln. He's extremely southern, extremely rich and very entertaining. Micheál MacLiammóir is funny as the larger than life Hamilton Starr who works at Adelle's dance academy as an elocution teacher, and Agnes Moorehead has a small but interesting role as evangelist Sister Alma. The film really reminded me of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? and Hush...Hush, Sweet Charlotte, after the film was finished I looked online and discovered that the screenplay was by Henry Farrell, who wrote the novel of Baby Jane and the screenplay for Hush...Hush. This film isn't quite as good as the other two, but it's still very good. It's well directed by Curtis Harrington, and it was nominated for an Oscar for best costume design. Strangely one of the character's in the film just disappears, and I've read that a murder at the end of the film was much more gruesome which leads me to believe this is possibly a cut version.

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent set 27 Oct 2013
By Derohn Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a decent set,half I loved..and the other half I thought was so-so. Still a good buy

-The Outing (1987): full screen, picture looks like a high quality VHS, no extras
It's about a evil genie that gets unleashed and causes rampage. It start off slow but picks up and doesn't stop. My favorite of the set.

-The Vagrant (1992): widescreen,has great picture, no extras
It's about a man moving into a new home but there's a bum that starts to make his life a living hell.
The movie is fun and there's never a dull moment..I enjoyed it a lot.

-What's the Matter with Helen (1971): widescreen, has great picture, no extras
It's about two women who sons go to prison for murder, the women start to get death threats. So they move to California to
get away from all that. But still this person keeps calling and one of the woman starts to see a man outside of their place.
The movie is a slow burner with a small kill count, I found it not really my cup of tea.

-The Godsend (1980): widescreen, has good picture, no extras
It's about a family who comes across a lost pregnant women so they take her in. She then has the baby at their house then
just vanishes. So they take care of the baby as their own..while it gets older it kills...it's a demon child.
The movie again is a slow burner but it's okay..I wouldn't watch it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Set Of Rare Horror 6 Nov 2013
By Cass G - Published on Amazon.com

I like this set a lot, I've watched all the movies except Whats the matter with Helen, I really enjoyed the 3 I watched, they were all entertaining and kept my interest, they are B movies, but all really well done and memorable each having a good pace and interesting storyline, I like this set much better than the Vol.2 set which I found pretty boring for the most part, but I recommend this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not all are in their correct aspect ratio! 17 Oct 2013
By inspector - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a short and sweet review. 2 movies to a disc, but not as bad as Movies 4 You, which had 4 movies to a disc. "What's the Matter With Helen" was already on the Midnite Movie label, and this is just as clear as that. Also, the correct aspect ratio of 1.85:1(IMDB the same). "The Vagrant" has its DVD debut, is the correct aspect ratio of 1.85:1(IMDB the same) and the picture looks pretty good, nothing to compare it to.

"The Godsend" has its DVD debut also, but shows at 1.66:1(IMDB says 2.35:1). The color is pretty good and again, nothing to compare it to. Last is "The Outing", also DVD debut(had a DVD Pal) which is shown at 1.37:1 (IMDB says 1.85:1). Color is lousy, picture is dark, blacks blown out, no detail in night scenes, the whole movie is dark. Where did they get this print from, I wonder?

All in all, it didn't rate higher than a 3 star because of 2 movies are not in their correct aspect ratio. One already is in another set and one is a lousy print...but worth the $9 for the 4, but only for the two.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard To Get Titles, At A Bargain Price. 17 Nov 2013
By AussieTony - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Thank you Shout Factory for releasing the Godsend and The Outing. I'm not going to complain, I'm just thankful to have these 2 hard to get films on DVD at all. As for the quality, it's passable and I watched it ok on my full-HD widescreen TV. I know sometimes it's darn near impossible to get perfect master transfer tapes. So again thank you Shout, thank you so much.
