This Shadow Stalkers set is filled with mostly suspense/thriller-horror movies, much not very well known (at least to me) and a couple (Don’t Answer the Phone and Silent Night, Bloody Night) were previously released in another set (“Faces of Horror”) in my own collection.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


The 10 films are spread across three discs which are stacked on one another in a standard DVD case. No features were included and the menus are basic with the only option is to select the movie you want to view.

 

VIDEO – 3.25/5, AUDIO – 3.0/5


Nothing amazing in either department, but these bargain priced multi-movie sets rarely are but for the most part they do look and sound adequate enough.

OVERALL – 3.0/5


This Shadow Stalkers set is filled with mostly suspense/thriller-horror movies, much not very well known (at least to me) and a couple (Don’t Answer the Phone and Silent Night, Bloody Night) were previously released in another set (“Faces of Horror”) in my own collection. As it is, and since the SRP is only $15, you should be able to grab this for <$10 and if you enjoy some schlocky thrillers, might be worth picking up.
