I bought about a fourth of these movies and they were very economically priced, however even with duplicates this pack would be worth purchasing. Many of them are Roger Corman classics. Others are so bad that you have to watch then to tell people that you too have eclectic tastes. The individual titles come and go so get them all while you can.
Be sure to read all the individual reviews (after you buy the collection).
A few of highlights:
The Incredible Petrified World – 66 minutes long
Queen of the Amazons – original title “Amazons and Gladiators”
Robot Monster – terminator in a fur suit
She Gods of Shark Reef – natives and sharks but no She Gods
The Amazing Transparent Man – you can see through this one
The Wasp Woman – a stinging performance
Santa Claus Conquers The Martians – it is an abduction story
Teenagers From Outer Space – so what is new?
Crash of the Moons (Rocky Jones) – female ruler with a nasty attitude
Mesa of Lost Women – Horrible background music
Killers From Space – saw this as a kid – still spooky – Ping-Pong ball eyes
Zontar, the Thing From Venus – rubber Venusians
There are a few glaring omissions including “The Crawling Eye”

I have to give these a Five Star rating - simply for the fact that where can you get 50 movies for this kind of money? Okay; so they're not the best quality; apart from the picture and sound quality on some is not so good, most of the Discs in my Set had marks/scratches on them, but having had a replacement Set thinking it was a bad lot I'd received, they were the same, and so I simply put this down to 'cheapness' - and what can one really expect for this kind of money...

I've watched a few of them so far - some are good - some are not, but at the end of the day in terms of value for money; you have hours and hours of entertainment, and if you watch say one movie a night, they'd last you two months! Work that out, and there's not a lot else you can buy in terms of entertainment that you could get for this paltry sum!

NOTE: They also play on a Region 2 DVD Player!

after this, you will never need to buy another scifi film again.
and bw, these arent NTSC, they are region O.
i've played it on a PAL dvd player, and also a ps2 lite, and they work perfectly.
same goes for the horror classics dvd pack.
good news for the european scifi fans!

I have the 50 Mystery Movie Pack and the 50 Horror Movie pack and they are worth the price many times over. It's like old Fright Night fests on telly or a 1950's Drive-In allnighter!
Queen of the Amazons, The Robot Monster, The Amazing Transparent Man, The Wasp Woman, Bride of the Monster, Attack of the Monsters, Gamera the Invincible, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, Teenagers From Outerspace, 5 Hercules ficks, Lost Jungle, Mesa of Lost Women, Eagah (one of my all time favs of Slock B-movies!) and dozens of more!
So pop a bowl of popcorn and sit back and enjoy all the movies so bad they are good...well, sort of!!

There are no glaring ommisions ! ..i.e. like THE CRAWLING EYE, the films in these collections are in the Public Domain..the Crawling Eye is still in copyright, so wont be found in a set like this. The collections are fantastic for B Movie lovers, moaning about the films not being in colour is just plain stupid, these films are beloved the World over by fans who understand these movies...if you want modern Sci-Fi buy a Star Wars box-set. If you want an instant B Movie collection, get the 'Horror' and 'Sci-Fi packs', then add the 'Mystery' box...heaven !.

TOP 1000 REVIEWERon 6 December 2011
One of those films that can very easily polarise an audience straddling somewhere between dreadful and really quite good depending on ones appreciation for the genre, expectations, tolerance levels etc.
Janice Starlin is a fading beauty products promoter of her own range of products (the film promotes her as fading looks wise due to age but there's barely any discernable difference between her in her 40's and her 15 year younger transformation - she looks fine either way)
Starlin co-opts the assistance of a fellow who has discovered the secret of turning the clock back via the medium of wasps royal jelly (not sure whether wasps produce royal jelly though) There are a number of quite bizarre scenes such as when the scientist in question is let go from his former employer he reveals his discovery but his sponsor stands by his decision, seemingly based upon a whim at the time. I would have felt he may have wanted to first check the substance of this amazing claim to the elixir of life before sacking him but naah who can be bothered with that.
Later on in a perfunctory experiment whereby a fat guinea pig is injected with the serum the rodent doesn't just get younger it transforms into an entirely different species, a rat!
For nearly the first hour of the film there is a number of scenes which whilst I largely found relatively interesting, amount to little more than filler. It's a bit suprising and disappointing that more screen time wasn't given to some hot Wasp Woman action, her only really figuring in the last 15-20 minutes.
Anyway the serum transforms Ms Starlin into a killer hybrid wasp, the scientist himself gets 'attacked' by a cat (another test subject) that weirdly appears to have had some attempt at fixing little wasp wings onto its back and it all ends in tears with an enormous rolled up newspaper coming to the rescue (made that bit up!)
Amusingly Starlin is far more perturbed at her youth serum running out then her transformations into a killer wasp, not such a far fetched concept when I think about an ex of mine; it is quite good fun and would make a great big budget remake to compliment The Fly!

What can one say, film is exactly what I thought it would be so cannot complains about my lack of tast.
Only gave it two stars because of such a bad sound quality, tiny hollow and it ecowed all the way through which was irritating and will probably not watch it again because of this.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 23 August 2011
Pretty Susan Cabot plays Janice Starlin, the head of a cosmetic firm, who thanks to the discovery of the rejuvenating qualities of wasp royal jelly by an obliging professor, is now beginning to reclaim her lost youthful looks. Unfortunately the impatient Ms Starlin overdoses while attempting to quicken up the process, which eventually turns her into a killer wasp. The movie takes a little while to get going before the fun starts.

Produced and directed by low budget B-movie horror specialist Roger Corman, it's not the best of its kind or the worst. I suspect that in less capable hands the whole venture would have probably sunk without trace, but Mr Corman does manage to produce the goods with the limited resources at his disposal, and the end product is a cheap and cheerful cult sci-fi/monster flick.

The black and white picture quality isn't much to write home about, the sound is tinny (a bit like placing a seashell against the ear). A basic release from Elstree Hill, with no extras or subtitles.

this film is classic...may not be one of the best of its genre but is not a crap movie...it has become a cult classic since it first was released and was probably one of susan cabots finest performances in her career, the poor woman was stuck in the B movie genre til her death in the early 80s.
it has a creepy atmosphere and is very cheesy and quite fun to watch and at this price it is a steal i may consider buying it soon :).
im looking forward to next years film BLACK OASIS where ROSE MCGOWAN will play susan cabot in a biopic of her life until her death...im sure rose will do a good job :):)
