    Having watched The Masque of the Red Death, I noticed a couple odd authoring blips near the end portions of the movie where the video somewhat glitches in a what that it appears like a wrinkle on the transfer. Perhaps this is an error on my end?

    Other than that, I greatly enjoyed this collection. I sincerely hope Shout! considers releasing a Vol 2 with the remaining PBS Vincent Prince introductions. It doesn't have to be all horror, just as long as we get more AIP Vincent Price.

    I've been watching one film per evening in disc order. So far I've screened "Pit and the Pendulum", "The Masque of the Red Death", and "The Haunted Palace". I had no idea that "Palace" was based primarily on H.P. Lovecraft's "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward" and it was a pleasant discovery. This is my first viewing of any of these films and I've got to say that they're really delightful! It seems that the team of Corman/Price was very synergistic, and Mr. Price is a consummate actor. He really does elevate the proceedings here. The phrase, "The whole is greater than the sum of it's parts" really does apply IMO. While the transfers aren't perfect I think that Shout has done an admirable job and I'm glad we have these movies presented in a collection of this caliber. I'm really looking forward to the rest of the set. For $42 this title was an absolute steal! Tonight it's "The Fall of the House of Usher".

    Goddamnit! Me and my slothful nature. "Oh, I'll get it soon! Someday soon!" Now the stupid thing is out of print and going for 200 bucks. WEAK!

    From what I've gathered Shout lost the rights to have the titles together in a box set. I'm expecting individual releases for the titles in 2016.

    Yeah, reading further (and between the lines), that looks like the case. And I have them on DVD, so its not like I dont have them in some format - it's just annoying.


    Ah well, there are other Scream! fish in the horror sea. . . .
