This review is from: Val Lewton Horror Collection [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
at last a chance to see some of the greatest horror movies of the 40's!
Relying more on suggestion and atmosphere than monsters and ghouls lewtons series of scary movies still remain influential today. My personal faves on this set are Isle of the dead (great karloff movie and a unique take on the vampire myth) and ghost ship (still a great study in power and madness) Most of the films come with insightful commentery's and a supurb documentary on the final disc. there is some wear and tear on the prints in places but otherwise the films look and sound great and well worth 25 quid of any film-buff's cash.
