    Great Fun!

    You do not expect Criterion to do four B-horror Films such as these. I recommend for the great extras and the films themselves are a blast. Karloff the great stars in 2 hard to find films The Haunted Strandler and Corridors of Blood. Both are from the fifties and are some of his best work. The commentaries are full of innformation on karloff and the movies. The other 2 are sci-fi movies from the fifties also and I was not disappointed in the films or the commentaries and extras. I found these at Barnes and Nobles during a half price sale and have been spending hours watching them. I highly recommend this package for the sheer fun and entertainment.
