    Awesome!

    I have import DVD's of Chud 2, Class of 1999 and Ghoulies III already, but it'd be worth it just for 976-Evil 2.

    I doubt all of them are. The R2 DVD of Class of 1999 is 16x9 from Lionsgate.

    He says Chud 2 and Unholy are in widescreen. Plus, like Katatonia said, Class of 1999 was widescreen from Lionsgate on their previous DVD.

    Still $5 to get Chud 2, Unholy, 976-Evil 2 and Ghoulies III on dvd? I'm sold.

    I wonder how many discs the set has, flippers, etc? It'll probably lose the extras for Chopping Mall. Not to mention Waxwork 2.

    I already own LionsGate's Chopping Mall, Waxwork / Waxwork 2, Class Of 1999, and Slaughter High DVDs, plus 976-EVIL 2 on VHS. I wouldn't mind owning The Unholy and CHUD 2 though.

    Nothing at my Wal-mart. They did have one Lionsgate horror collection with the Bloody Murders films etc. but not this one.

    Ghoulies III is available on Amazon Instant Video for $2.99, FYI.

    Also, does that guy ever say the TITLE of the collection? He never holds the box art up long enough for me to get a good read besides "Horror".

    EDit: He says," It's the 'Horror Collection' from Lionsgate." Hmm.

    I gave LG a ring about the collection and sent over an email with details. Hopefully they get back to me soon as to what the skinny is with this set and where to find it.

    I checked my Wal Mart and no dice on my end either. If anyone out there does find it, I'd recommend snagging a few copies - especially if it's in the $5 bin, you could make your money back in double time selling them here alone!

    Maybe it's some kind of limited regional (Canadian) release? Nobody seems to know anything about this. I'll only bite if they're decent transfers (and IF I find it easily).

    No dice at my local Wally, they had the one with the Bloody Muder films and a couple other 8 film collections that made no sense grouped together. All were in the $5 dump bin, and right as I was done looking I found something else...
    From Lionsgate, all 8 After Dark Horrerfest 3 films together in one case (feels like 2 discs) for $5! Probably stripped of features, but for 62 cents a flick I couldn't resist despite owning two of the solo dvds. So glad I passed on Perkins 14 and Dying breed at Blockbuster, they have both for $2 each and they've been tempting me for 2-3 weeks now, but I kept waiting for them to hit the $1 rack.

    Just opened it and it's ehhh. 2 discs, each one-sided, dual layer with 4 films. All films have only a play opition, there are chapter stops but no menu for them. No features and all appear to only have 2.0 audio despite the real dvds having 5.1
    Guess you get what you pay for, so it's worth it to get to see all the films for cheap, but disappointing on the audio. At least Butterfly Effect 3 is the correct 2.35 ratio and all films are anamorphic WS.

    Rhett's lack of response suggests he may have passed out from excitement. Quick, someone send him a tweet!

    Ugh... 8 films on only two single-sided dual-layer discs? I'll bet this set will be the same as that then.

    Oh well, I guess it's not quite as bad as Echo Bridge. They've been releasing 10 and 20 movie packs with 5 films per each dual-layer disc.

    I can find nothing of this collection on the net. Aside from this video, it's the only proof I can find that it exists. This collection is only significant for me for the LBX version of THE UNHOLY.
