Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi are, deservedly, renowned as perhaps the best actors in horror movies. But most of their "greatest hits", so to speak, have already been released on DVD; only one of the four movies in this 2-disc set is actually above mediocrity. That movie, THE WALKING DEAD, stars Karloff and is directed by an A-Lister, Michael Curtiz. And that movie is a three-star picture at best. The other Karloff-starrer in the collection, FRANKENSTEIN 1970, is pretty bad stuff, and Karloff gives a rare bad performance in it. It was pretty obvious throughout the movie that he would've preferred to be somewhere else...anywhere else than in this movie. And, despite the subtitle of the collection, HORROR CLASSICS, neither of the Lugosi-starrers are horror movies. YOU'LL FIND OUT is a big-band comedy (with some rather nifty music), and ZOMBIES ON BROADWAY is a very low-budget comedy, which just happens to have Bela Lugosi in it. Now, if you're a Karloff/Lugosi completist, you've probably already bought this collection, and you'll appreciate it for their presences in your permanent collection. However, if you're a casual horror fan, there's not much here for you.
