5.0 out of 5 stars Rare unseen Karloff TV series
The real treasure of this collection is the TV series The Veil. Considering it was an American show , there are a surprising number of familiar British faces, including Patrick Macnee and Robert Hardy. It was apparently never shown on television due to production problems, so the ten complete episodes here are a virtually unknown addition to the wonderful Karloff canon.

This was a very hard collection to get hold of. I was not disappointed. Obviously they are a bit dated but the quality is very good. I was worried in case they didn't play on region 2 but there's no problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars 8 great B-movies but no TV series, 19 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
have just received this and, though it is a treaureable collection of Lugosi B-movies, the set does not include the TV series mentioned in other comments here - they must surely refer to a different collection.
The Bela Lugosi Horror Collection contains the following:

1. White Zombie

A wealthy plantation owner strikes a bargain with a voodoo master (Lugosi) to create a zombie bride (Bellamy). (1 hr 10 min, B&W)

2. Bowery At Midnight

A criminology professor (Lugosi) leads a gang of thieves by night. Anyone who gets in his way ends up buried in his cellar--until a mad doctor (Kelly) reanimates the corpses! (1 hr 1 min, B&W)

3. Invisible Ghost
Cast: Bela Lugosi, Betty Compson
A doctor (Lugosi) unwittingly commits murders while hypnotized by his wife's ghost. After an innocent man is executed, his twin and the doc's daughter uncover the true killer! (1 hr 4 min, B&W)

4. Spooks Run Wild
Cast: Bela Lugosi, The East Side Kids
A goofy gang (The East Side Kids) spends the night at a creepy mansion and encounters its owner (Lugosi)--who remarkably resembles Count Dracula! (1 hr 5 min, B&W)

5. The Corpse Vanishes
Cast: Bela Lugosi, Elizabeth Russell
A doctor (Lugosi) keeps his wife (Russell) young with the glandular fluids of virgins! Will a reporter (Walters) be the next victim? (1 hr 3 min, B&W)

6. The Devil Bat
Cast: Bela Lugosi, Dave "Tex" O'Brien
A chemist changes a bat into a monstrosity trained to kill. An ace reporter (O'Brien) soon becomes the next target! (1 hr 8 min, B&W)

7. The Ape Man
Cast: Bela Lugosi, Wallace Ford
After making himself an ape-man during a horrific lab experiment, a mad doctor (Lugosi) hunts for the cure--human spinal fluid! (1 hr 5 min, B&W)

8. Bela Lugosi Meets A Brooklyn Gorilla
Cast: Bela Lugosi, Duke Mitchell
A scientist (Lugosi) on a remote island finds the perfect lab rats when two jokers (Mitchell, Petrillo) parachute into his lair! (1 hr 15 min, B&W)

5.0 out of 5 stars Dire films,but The Veil is great!, 27 Sept. 2014

This review is from: Boris Karloff Horror Collection [DVD] [2009] [US Import] (DVD)
A dvd set that's only worth buying for The Veil[5 Stars for this ONLY]-a great lesser known late 50's[un-aired]mystery series, similar to The Twilight Zone, but with Mr Karloff introducing and ending, instead of Mr Serling. Karloff also acts in all but one story, as well as other familiar faces like Robert Hardy, and the bad guy from Night/Curse of the Demon. Well worth watching.....unlike the 3 dire films that are either so very bad they're unwatchable from the get-go[Snake People+Island Terror], or so dull, it becomes unwatchable very soon[The Terror]. So, summing up, forget the films, and buy only for[around £3], the excellent 'The Veil'.
