TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 3 June 2016
This is a decent budget set of three horror films released in 2007; none particularly outstanding by themselves, but as a diverse collection of the genre from nearly ten years ago now, they are a good purchase.

“Shrooms” is a fairly effective low-budget piece; a group of young American students visit Ireland at the invitation of a friend in order to experience the effects of the local hallucinogenic produce, but there`s also a legend concerning the woods and a possible haunting... A slasher come psychological thriller, with something of a Japanese influence in it`s realisation; you decide if they got the ending right...
“Dead Silence” concerns the mystery of an evil ventriloquist`s dummy sent to the home of Jamie Ashden (Ryan Kwanten) who sets out to investigate it`s origins and clear himself from police suspicion of murder. This film clearly had a reasonable budget for special effects; the storyline is pretty over-the-top, operatic fare but dishes the gore and throws in a few interesting twists – whether you buy into it or not is up to you.
“Wind Chill” is (arguably) the best of the three; an un-named couple of students arrange a car-share to journey home for Christmas and take an inadvisable short-cut down a snowy road... This film benefits from a little more character development than usual and the acting is of a higher standard; the storyline is okay for what it is.

All three films have extras – each has a brief “making of” documentary and some out-takes/alternative endings etc.. All are presented in wide-screen 2.40.1 (16x9) ratio; I found “Shrooms” a bit grainy with some minor artefacting, though given the trippy nature of much of the film it's hard to say if this is deliberate or not.
Run times for all the films are approx. 1 Hour 27 – 28 minutes each.
Not bad for the asking price, which at time of writing is cheaper than buying any of the films on their own.
3 ½ stars overall, 4 perhaps if you`re a horror fan.

These triple movie packs are generally a bit awful, if you're lucky you might get one good/ok film and then a couple of utter duds. This one rather bucks that trend. Don't get me wrong, none of these films are outstanding but, if you can get it cheaply enough, it deliver 3 solid and satisfyingly different horrors. A perfect movie-marathon with pizza and beer set basically.

Wind Chill **** - The pick of the bunch; smart script, decent acting and some great jumps
Shrooms *** - A genuine oddity but one I rather enjoyed, some really creepy bits
Dead Silence *** -Ludicrous but fun film that gets most of its mileage out of the fact that ventriloquist dummies are a bit freaky

Nothing in this is at all cerebral, all are good fun in their own way

I was looking for Shrooms, but then I came accross the DVD collection of these 3 fine movies..So I couldnt resist getting them all!! they are all worth having!..Shrooms Is brilliant.. a great twist to the story at the end..and Windchill is excellent too!! It stars Emily Blunt, who hitches a ride back home, from school..with a strange guy.the car they are in ends up in an accident and they are stranded on the side of the road in really wintery conditions...and it really is a great story!! and really scary in parts....and gripping..Dead Silence, however, is a bit silly!! but I still enjoyed it..and it was different!! but those ventrilaquist dummies are really freaky!!If you dont like those, best not to watch it!! but these movies are really brilliant value!! Time for a DVD evening I think with fellow horror fans!! A brilliant buy!!

I was looking for Windchill when I saw this for a similar price, a no brainer really.
