not as good as its made out to be by others
on 19 May 2013
I bought this as i am a fan of the films and saw all the 5 star reviews on here. Also, i have been impressed with the previous DVDs that Nucleus have released. I have to say i dont agree that this is such a great set. The docmentary is watchable, but is far from comprehensive, for example it does not mention once the animal cruelty of the cannibal movies as being a problem for UK censors. They all laugh it off saying the censors got it wrong. Also, how rewatchable is this set? I dont want to watch the docmentary again, and the trailers for the movies are often pretty poor quality, i have much better quality trailers for these films on the DVDs i have. Also the introdctions to each trailer i found pretty dull, they didnt add to my knowledge in any way, in fact it felt a bit like watching some people from down the pub expressing their opinions on each film, and often i found myself in disagreement. Its all quite snazzy with the menus and that model woman at the beginning but in terms of actual content 20+ quid for this? no thanks, id avoid this unless you are a complete newcomer to video nasties then it may help guide you to which films you want to see. But for anyone who has watched a lot of these films id quesion how much yo will get out of this set.
