These three sets are more bargain releases for Mill Creek Entertainment with titles previously on DVD and in some cases Blu-ray so unless you don’t already own these, it might be worth picking up at $10 a pop, though don’t expect any frills and the video and audio transfers are so-so at best.

THE MOVIES

Mill Creek Entertainment has released a variety of titles part of three multi-film sets, the majority already available in various other releases, including Blu-ray, and under the Sony Pictures Home Entertainment line. None of these films are particularly good though within the “Queens of Scream” set, Vacancy isn’t bad and even I Know What You Did Last Summer has its moments even if it is B-level script work by Kevin Williamson only sold due to his smash success following the release of Scream. However, both of these are already available on Blu-ray with some bonus material (more on that in the section below). The Cave I recall being so-so at best and I utterly hated When a Stranger Calls (remake) which I had the misfortune of seeing that one in theaters.

The other two sets, “The Alien Files” — which includes Night Skies, Alien Hunter, Ghosts of Mars and The Day the World Ended — are more or less terrible and “Locked and Loaded” — Attack Force, The Point Men, The Hunt for Eagle One and Walking Tall: Lone Justice — are the usual direct-to-video crap barely worth mentioning.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

Unfortunately, but unsurprisingly, no features are included.

 

 

VIDEO – 2.5/5 | AUDIO – 2.5/5

Due to 4 movies crammed onto one disc, there are compression issues. Every movie is, from what I can tell, shown in their original anamorphic widescreen transfers (Night Skies is 1.33 full frame), do provide some decent colors. Outside of that, these don’t look the best and probably could’ve (and should’ve) been split onto two discs.

On a similar note, every movie is given a very basic Dolby Digital 2.0 track, none of which are anything special but do give OK dialogue levels while other elements, like the score or action-centric scenes, are flat.

 

OVERALL – 2.0/5

Overall, these three sets are more bargain releases for Mill Creek Entertainment with titles previously on DVD and in some cases Blu-ray so unless you don’t already own these, it might be worth picking up at $10 a pop, though don’t expect any frills and the video and audio transfers are so-so at best.
