    Updating as I get through the collection.

    1. EYES OF A STRANGER-So impressed with this film. The performances are first-rate (I'm a huge Jennifer Jason Leigh mark) and those Savini effects are cool shit. Can't believe I'd never heard of this one.

    2. THE HAND-Finally watched this for the first time. I love it. The atmosphere, the pace and the performances are terrific. What a pleasant surprise and a beautiful transfer.

    3. DEADLY FRIEND-I saw it during its theatrical run. I always felt it was pretty cheesy, but in a good way. Wish the DVD had the original poster art. (which is always better, isn't it?)

    4. DR. GIGGLES-Much better than I remembered, but I don't think this film will be in the top 3 when I finish seeing the others.

    I've always had a fondness for EYES OF A STRANGER,I felt it had a deeper plot than most of that eras slasher films,plus Ken (SHOCK WAVES) Weiderhorn created some nice set pieces.FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE was a solid second,nostalgic fun.
    I would have loved to have seen THE NESTING included in this set,a solid (and seldom seen) horror film gathering dust in the Warner vaults.

    Watched Dr.Giggles last night for the first time in 12 years and wow it still holds up today. Some of those deaths are really creative and brutal even in this day and age of horror films. well worth the 10$ I spent at Wal-Mart.

    Just watched EYES OF A STRANGER. I was blown away. The makeup effects were great and I didn't realize it was Savini until the credits (had a feeling though...). I agree this is a vastly overlooked slasher. Love these films where we know the killer from the get-go.

    I read somewhere that Dr. Giggles isn't in the OAR of 2.35:1....is that true?

    Can't vote anymore, i see. if i could, my vote would be for From Beyond the Grave. That 70's British atmosphere is great, as are David Warner, Peter Cushing, and Donald Pleasance. I love the amicus anthology films. The others were all interesting for one thing or another, all worthwhile films.
