Cult Classics 20 Movie Pack

Starring and directed by various
4 DVDs
Run time 23 hours, 54 minutes

OK, well, since this doesn't exactly fall under the category of "Monsters" or "Martians", I'll use the catch-all of "Madmen" as my excuse to highlight this gem I picked up yesterday.

We were perusing the aisles of the local Big Lots for Christmas items, and I headed over to the DVD section. They often have some great deals on genre films, new and old. Wouldn't you know this spectacular collection of exploitation and scare films was staring me right in the face, and with a price tag of only 6 bucks, there's no way I could pass it up! Merry Christmas to me, it's the Cult Classics 20 Movie Pack!

Here's the official synopsis:

Cautionary and unintentionally hilarious features with public service, morality or exploitation themes, you reel from the horrors of drug use in "Reefer Madness" and "Cocaine Fiends". You will see the heartache of moral decay in "Escort Girl", "Sex Madness" and "Slaves in Bondage". And you will encounter the truly bizarre in "Chained for Life" and "The Terror in Tiny Town".

1. Chained for Life

How can you go wrong with the immortal classics such as Reefer Madness

Cocaine Fiends

The Terror of Tiny Town

All the movie information, including posters, years, actors and directors, are included on the company's site and linked above.

If you happen upon this collection, definitely pick it up for some cheesy exploitative fun. It's amazing to watch the propaganda and morality lessons in these alarmist films. All these years later, they are such fun in a strange way......
