Yeah, plenty of quality scream dream here!
1 June 2002 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Generally speaking, most of these compilation "tributes" are crap...even this one was done on the cheap. Perhaps on account though of the clips used (95% trailers, if you're observant enough to notice) and Christopher Lee's (who else???) narration, the thing works. Matter of fact its great stuff!

Definitely more of interest to the over 40's (over 60"s wouldn't go that far astray either, now I come to think about it!) as the greater majority of the referenced work here is from archived horror 1940 and earlier. Not ALL though, even relative "acolytes" such as John Carpenter get their few minutes worth on camera!

As one reviewer pointed out, it was funny stuff to hear Lee's more than realistic comment upon his own contribution - to the "horror" that was HOWLING II!
