Horror with balls

Advantages: The first film is a classic
Disadvantages: The other four films are most emphatically not classic

...This limited edition boxset from Arrow films is £70 on amazon at time of writing. Phantasm is a venerable horror franchise that never quite made it to the kind of public recognition of Halloween or Nightmare on Elm Street, but which has a fairly passion ...

Glass half Fulci

Advantages: Quite a good Blu-ray, I guess
Disadvantages: The film is terrible

Nothing so appalling in the annals of horror

Advantages: An excellent set devoted to a not-so-excellent director
