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 ...

Off the beaten track

Advantages: Interesting films, well presented
Disadvantages: Although the films are good, none stands out as absolutely essential

Advantages: 21 films, good extras, nicely presented

The Hammer Collection Box Set

Advantages: An aesthetically pleasing collection
Disadvantages: Some rather poor inclusions

...A selection of classic Hammer films from the very good to...not so good. An aesthetically pleasing set for fans of the studio, or those wanting at least half of the titles. Features star favourites Peter Cushing, Raquel Welch, Ursula Andress and Christo ...
