You know the drill!
To gear up for Halloween, we crack open a Mill Creek box of fifty movies — then post those reviews throughout November. The Mill Creek madness began with their Chilling Classics set in 2018 and we also did the Pure Terror set in 2019. For 2020, we jammed on the Sci-Fi Invasion set.
Mill Creek’s 12-Packs always come in handy for our theme weeks, such as our recent “Fast and Furious Week,” when we need a lot of films, quickly, and the Savage Cinema set did the job. And, back in March 2020, we were so giddy with glee that we finally got our own copy of 9 Deaths of the Ninja courtesy of the Explosive Cinema 12-pack, we paid it forward to Mill Creek and reviewed all of the films in the pack.
Then, in February 2021, we went nuts in our Mill Creekness with a blowout of three box sets for 112 movies. In addition to The Excellent Eighties 50-Film Pack, we reviewed their Gorehouse Greats 12-Film Pack and B-Movie Blast 50-Film Pack.
Is there a Mill Creek set we missed? One you think we should do? Let us know.
