3.0 out of 5 stars Packaging Issues, 13 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So read the reviews below for the movie, i want to discuss the "robot packaging".
Upon arrival the back of the set was open and when i came to press the set together, i found a problem, the disc holder at the back of the packaging does not fit well, and can be quite fiddly to get it in its correct place to snap shut.
The outer box is already tearing, its a common problem with the type of plastic box they use for this type of edition.
So to be fair, if you want a tacky robot for a case, go ahead, or save yourself around 15 (at the time of posting this review) and go for the regular bluray edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Packaging Review, 22 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So you all know about the tv series from other reviews so im going to talk about this limited edition packaging. As a collector of fun boxsets like this, i was glad to find the "mausoleum" box is very sturdy, not flimsy cardboard, the discs themselves are housed in slipcases (unlike season 2 which were just in slots inside the skull packaging).
The only downsides to this nice item is that the plastic pieces may come off if knocked hard enough and that the outer plastic packaging box does split over time with constant opening.
Read the other reviews for a synopsis of the episodes.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is that... Vin Diesel?, 22 Aug 2013
This review is from: The Caretaker [DVD] (DVD)
After picking this up in a local supermarket, i should have known how bad this was going to be, there are no screenshots on the cover and a horrornews compares it to Stakeland Meets The Evil Dead....
So getting home i put this on the dvd player and i find its Australian (not a problem some great movies have come from there), but straight away i begin to notice a lack of budget. Now the story itself, a couple who are trying to save their marriage who get entangled in a vampire outbreak, end up taking shelter with some other characters and they all dont get along (hang on, is this a vampire version of Night of the Living Dead?). Oh no, sorry, one of the characters becomes a vampire and then makes a truce with the rest of the household that if they keep him safe from vampire hunters in the daytime, he will protect the people of the house at night. So the storyline (apart from sounding slightly like a NOTLD ripoff), isnt actually bad, but the major downside is the budget, the vampires at parts do come across as cheesy and the main offence... the actor who plays the main vampire wants to be Vin Diesel, im sorry but thats all i could think watching this, he looks like him and tries to act like him.
I wouldnt say avoid this movie at all costs, i have seen alot worse, but then again, i have seen alot better!

2.0 out of 5 stars major packaging fail, 29 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
ok this is a "fancy" box set of the 2nd series / season of Masters of Horror, please read the reviews of the uk release to get some idea of the stories included, im here to discuss the packaging.
Living in the uk i saw this and had to have it in my collection, but there is a major problem with the whole set design. I purchased the 1st series / season and it was well packaged, came in a mausoleum outer case, all the dvds in card sleeves, this box set is minimal, ok it looks good but the discs are in grooves inside the skull which are a very loose fit, no sleeves or cases, so from the usa to the uk they are free to rattle around, work loose and become badly scratched.
I was surprised at Anchor bay for the bad design after purchasing the 1st series and also the phantasm ball which was nicely filled with foam inside the ball and protected the discs well.
I have also seen online about the skull arriving with missing teeth that have broken off during transit. Please think twice before ordering this set in the uk, luckily my discs (although scratched on arrival) were playable and the skull in 1 piece. I would either leave this to a collector or remove the discs on arrival and place them in blank cd cases just to stop further damage.

4.0 out of 5 stars no he never dies?!?!?!, 29 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
on arrival this dvd box set made me panic, its 4 discs but upon looking on the back of the case there seems to be 1 film missing, "he never dies", urgently i opened the dvds to find the film is inside, panic over!
the dvds themseleves are region 2, easy to find subtitles, ok its not the steelbook edition but there is the complete series, i wont go into details of the films, if you are looking at this now, you already know the hype and rumours surrounding the films.
I see some of the series going for a crazy amount of money, i suppose if you are a hardcore collector and have to have them all, so be it, for the average person like me, i found this box set of 6 films and 2 makings of a cheap alternative and have no complaints at all over the set.

4.0 out of 5 stars well, its like this......., 29 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
the dvd box set is as described, all 4 films on 4 discs in 2 dvd cases, the films themselves are very grainy, almost to the point of trantino's grindhouse films, i dont know what state the orginal films are in thats been used for the dvds but its not the best, but on the upside, its region 2 and has easy to find subtitles, to buy the movies seperate cost more than i paid to buy the box set. The dvds themselves are set around atrocities carried out by squadron 731 before world war 2, some of the effects are very well dated now and come across as cheesey but, dont forget these are based on real events! i dont want to go into detail of the films, but just the actual quality of the movies to dvd.

1.0 out of 5 stars Harpoon: Reykjavik Whale Watching Disappointment, 20 May 2010
From the start this film was a letdown, partially subtitled (not a problem) and some of the actors accents i found hard to understand (yes i know its an icelandic film). It is full of some of the worst clichés of horror, oops oh no its an accidental death (like we didnt see that coming) that really starts the main part of the story. OK it's an old woman with a harpoon trying to kill you do you a: attack her when she has passed you and take her by surprise or b: hide behind a curtain literally wetting your pants. After 45 minutes i was ready for turning this film off, i managed to sit and watch it to the end.... how i managed to do that is a mystery in itself. Avoid like a crazy old woman with a harpoon screaming obsceneties at you!

4.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 1 May 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fishing Master (Wii) (Video Game)
This cheap priced Wii game is excellent. Very easy to grasp the controls, there are many types of fish to catch in many different locations. As you advance in the game new secret fishing spots are unlocked, which contain new species of fish. Bait is available to buy in the shops, but there is a free endless supply of worms. The only thing that let this game down was purchasing new bait, just to catch a tin can or tree stump (which there are far too many of in the game). The controls can either be used like a fishing rod, reeling the fish in with the nunchuck, or pressing c or z buttons. There is also the option to play using just the wiimote.
All in all it's a superb game for the price, and i'm not into fishing at all.

This review is from: Insanitarium [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
Low budget gore fest with crazed inmates running aroung eating each other very much in the vein of 28 days later. Rubber limbs are thrown about and buckets of fake blood flow. Watch if have nothing better to do on a saturday night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shane & co in fine form, 25 Jan 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The packaging of the dvd is misleading, the photo's on the cover are from entirely different concerts, however this dvd is fantastic. The quality is not great, the footage is very grainy, but the music shines through.
Shane sneering and spitting every word with passion. Great guest appearances through out the show. Great stuff all in all and worth the money.
