    While I was shopping in Best Buy today, I noticed a new budget 50 pack for $22 called 50 Drive-In Classics, and it contained both Savage Weekend and Rituals (which was in this set under its 1981 slasher cash in title The Creeper). While the quality on theses sets is questionable at best...it may be worth it a look if the Rituals print is uncut. Other stuff in the set included Vengeance of the Zombies and Creepers.

    It'll be VHS quality if it's anything like the Chilling Classics 50-pack they released. Still, for the price that was a great buy...I'll have to be on the lookout for this one.

    WOW, this set contains a lot of movies I'd like to see. Even Phenomena and Tenebre under the titles Creepers and Unsane! I already have both of those films but it's still wonderful that they were included. I will certainly be buying this and the also awesome-looking Chilling Classics set. :)

    I have the set not too bad, considering the price. Rituals is the cut version though, quality about average. But the set even has a couple of giallo's, so I was quite happy to pick it up.

    So what titles are indeed uncut? Also, read that a mill creek entertainment logo appears on the screen 3 or 4 times while you are watching the movies!!

    Anyone know if Rituals is a public domain title? It's popping up here and rumor has it that Trinity/905 is going to be releasing it in the near future.I find it hard to belive that a stateside dvd company has not snatched up the film rights for it.:(

    Ugh, that sucks about Rituals...for some reason I kinda had my hopes up...just scored a copy of the Candian VHS release though...so at least I finally get to see it.
    I still may have to get this for the giallo titles that are in there!
    Thanks for the info!

    Do the films have the Mill Creek Pop Up Logos coming up during all of the films? I have some of there other DVD Sets, and they never had a pop up logo, but I've heard that this one might. Do you know for sure?

    there's also a movie called "The Prime Time" in there which is one of the funniest films I've ever seen.

    The Prime Time is H.G. Lewis's first movie and stars Karen Black in her first-ever acting job. :)

    I went hunting for this today. I found the Horror Classics 50 movie set, but not the Drive in one. I might have to order it online. Is Crazy Ape reliable?

    To anyone interested in seeing the uncensored version of "Rituals", I suggest looking into a certain "zaerc"...
