Mill Creek – Gorehouse Greats

gorehousegreats
With Navarre shutting down BCI Eclipse, Mill Creek has stepped up and started to release the Crown International Library. Here we have a collection of 12 different movies ranging from the 1960’s to the 1980’s. Its an interesting collection which really doesn’t justify the “Gorehouse” title. This collection can be had for really cheap, and is a must for fans of low budget horror and exploitation if you don’t currently already have some of the various other BCI releases.

Conclusion

The Gorehouse Greats Collection from Mill Creek is pretty good for a budget release. I only wish it had a better print of Blood of Dracula’s Castle. While the print gets better in the later reels the first reel is pretty close to unbearable. As a whole, I wouldn’t put it as good as the Exploitation Cinema Collection that BCI released several years earlier, but its pretty solid for exploitation fans.
