By our calculations Mill Creek Entertainment has 1,565 programs ready for consumers to select from on the run up to Christmas (two waves: Nov. 6 and Dec. 3).
Included in the mix are films, documentaries, special interest presentations and television specials … 1,565 of them in all!!!
The action kicks off on Nov. 6 with 16, count’em, 16 DVD sets containing 20 films each spread over four discs … and priced at just $9.98 per collection. That’s fifty cents per movie … or you can look it this way, buy one movie for $9.98 and get 19 free. Do the math anyway you like, but it all comes out the same: bargains galore!
These collections are all theme-oriented. For example, 20 Movies: They Came From Space - 20 Amazing Sci-Fi Features includes such delights as Vincent Price starring in the 1964 end-of-the-world saga, The Last Man on Earth, director Terry O. Morse’s 1951 exploration of the interior of the earth, Unknown World, and humankind’s only salvation rests with the crew on a spaceship bound for Venus in the 1972 sci-fi thriller Doomsday Machine.
Examples of some of the other 20-film collections include: 20 Movies: Dog Lovers Film Collection, 20 Movies: Family Holiday Film Collection, 20 Movies: Dead of Night - 20 Bone-Chilling Features and 20 Movies: John Wayne Western Hero.
For a complete listing of both the collections and the film selections contained therein, see the listings being on page 14 of this week’s edition of the DVD & Blu-ray Release Report or visit Mill Creek Entertainment’s website at http://www.millcreekent.com.
Also on Nov. 6 look for five single-disc collections containing four programs each and priced at just $5.98.
These are also “themed” collections — for example, 4 Specials: Holiday Collection includes the Kenny Rogers Christmas (guest appearances include Trisha Yearwood and Garth Brooks), Liberace Christmas Special, Fred Waring Music (from the GE Theater) and the vintage All-Star USO Show (broadcast in 1958 with an introduction by then president, Dwight D. Eisenhower) — over three hours of programming in all.
Shifting to Dec. 3, we find four DVD “bricks,” each containing 50 discs and priced at $99.98 each (before discounts at retail). Three of these 50-disc collections contain 200 movies each — Drive-In Cult Classics Collection, Tales of Terror and Trail West — while the fourth has no less that 325 different documentaries and special interest segments all released under a 50-disc collection titled In A Time Of War … A Complete History of U.S. Wars (189 hours worth of programming in just one collection).
When you add it all up, that 1,565 films, documentaries, special edition presentations and TV programs to select from.
For a complete listing of the 50-disc “bricks” please visit Mill Creek’s website at http://www.millcreekent.com … it could take us 189 hours just to list everything in these four collectible sets!!!
