Nice artwork, but kind of disappointed the films won't get individual artwork.

The art looks nice. I'm glad they didn't over do it with the scratched-wax look everyone else does these days.

Love the cover art. Have to purchase this, even though me and my husband own a few on Blu-Ray. Would have been nice if they had the sequel to Dr Phibes, but maybe in the future

Some details from Fearnet:

"All the discs will feature extensive bonus content, including interviews with producer/director Roger Corman, audio commentaries, original theatrical trailers, still galleries and archival materials, and the set comes with a 24-page collector’s book."

Very excited about the slate of supplements in this set. Glad to see that all MGM DVD bonus features are carried over for all of the films in addition to each film getting new extras. This set is worth it for the Dr. Phibes supplements alone, which make up for the previous barebones release.

However, this isn't a definitive set by any means. The following extras are missing:

House of Usher (from Arrow UK Blu-ray)
-Legend to Legend: An interview with director and former Corman apprentice Joe Dante
-Interview with author and Gothic horror expert Jonathan Rigby
-Fragments of the House of Usher: A Specially-commissioned video essay by critic and filmmaker David Cairns examining Corman’s film in relation to Poe’s story
-Archival interview with Vincent Price (this might have been re-edited into another feature)

Masque of the Red Death (from German DVDs & Blu)
-Doesn't appear to include the slightly extended version seen on German discs.

Witchfinder General (from Odeon UK Blu-ray)
-Audio Commentary with Benjamin Halligan and Michael Armstrong
-Alternate Opening and Closing Credits (from US release)
-Alternate Nude Scenes from Export Version
-Vincent Price on 'Aspel & Company'
-'The Blood Beast: The Films of Michael Reeves'
-'Bloody Crimes - Witchcraft'
-'Intrusion': Michael Reeves' Short Film (with optional audio commentary by Benjamin Halligan and Michael Armstrong)

The bonus disc from the MGM Vincent Price Scream Legends box set is also MIA.

I'm still very excited about this set and can't wait to pick it up, but it is annoying needing to own 2 box sets and a couple individual releases in order to have all the supplements available for each film.

Although it's not Scream Factory's fault, it's also annoying that buying this set will only allow me to get rid of my The Fall of the House of Usher/The Pit and the Pendulum dvd. I'll have to keep the Masque of the Red Death in order to keep The Premature Burial, The Haunted Palace in order to keep The Tower of London, and the Witchfinder General and Dr. Phibes discs as part of my Vincent Price Scream Legends Box Set. It's all so terribly inconvenient.

Agreed. Hopefully they remedy this with vol. 2, which they said will be coming as long as this set sells well enough. So everyone, buy a copy!

Companies like Shout Factory saw big bucks in doing small genre releases to horror fans still in love with physical media. It seems that the horror fanbase is one of the last few who will go after discs rather than the younger crowd who would rather have everything digital.

I ain't complaining.

Having staked his claim with a Rondo-nominated thesis in Little Shoppe of Horrors #29, Justin Humphreys is the go-to guy regarding DR. PHIBES, and I'm excited he is making his audio commentary debut dicussing his favorie movie. And as I said previously, I think the contributions of voice artist Piotr Michael, bringing back Price himself, really make my tracks shine. Here's his test as a teaser ...

Is the release date October 8th or October 22nd? Amazon & Deep Discount have it listed as 10/22. Dvd Pacific & Family Video list it as 10/8. A little surprised there aren't any reviews up yet?
