What movies are in the latest Brentwood box-sets?

Brentwood seems to be incapable of disclosing the titles in its collections when their releases are announced. One would think that would be a fairly important tidbit of info to impart if you're trying to get people interested in your product.
The newest unnamed are:

-"Draw the Line" 4-movie set
-"More All-Night Movies" 4-movie set
-"Sweet Obsession" 4-movie set
-"Nightmares from the Crypt" 20-movie set
-"Return of the Warriors" 20-movies set

...and a couple of others. Now, I haven't the foggiest what is actually contained in these releases. There might actually be a couple or three decent, scarce films to be found, as has happened with BCI in the past.

Anybody know?

I found this for Nightmares from the Crypt
"If you like hours of scary movies, this is the set for you. Twenty movies with scares aplenty and such horror maestros as Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing and Klaus Kinski. The collection features such films as: MOON OF THE WOLF, HORROR HOTEL, WEB OF THE SPIDER, SATANIC RITES OF DRACULA, LADY FRANKENSTEIN, GOD TOLD ME TO, CHRISTMAS EVIL, and many more"

I get frustrated by this every time they announce something too. It happens every time, without fail.

If DVDEmpire has them up, that usually helps, because they'll have pics of the back cover. But they have zero info on Nightmares from the Crypt or Return of the Warriors right now. Annoying.

DVDEmpire does have the titles for Draw the Line, More All-Night Movies, and Sweet Obsession.

From the sound of it, they're just rehashes of old stuff. Thanks all.

bboisvert, Brentwood actually has covers on its (barebones) website, but they are not enlargeable so one can't even view what titles are enclosed!?!

With the exception of Twisted Obsession with Goldblum, the movies contained in the 4-movie collections mentioned above appear to all be backyard Sidaris-type trash. Oh well.

Messiah of Evil

Cathy's Curse
Horror Hotel

If you don't have any of the other smaller sets they did, this would be worth it for only about $4 more than the 10 pack of movies

Yes, these are all rereleases from Brentwood. Some good movies in there, along with some dross. The short version of Deep Red included here, though of fairly shabby quality as is to be expected, is far superior to the 130 min. Anchor Bay release.

Now a new 10-movie set, titled "Night Chills", has been announced, without elaboration as usual. Anyone know if this is just more warmed-over stuff, or new "acquisitions"?

Thanks for filling us in. Looks like mainly Grade-Z crap.

Brentwood can't always deliver what they promise, so it's probably a good idea to keep the contents of their sets close to the vest.

I remember that one of their 4-movie sets, "Alien Predators," was supposed to have "Day of the Triffids," on it, but didn't.

Also, another of their 4-movie sets, "Pray for Death," only came with one of the four movies originally promised.

I'm on the fence about Brentwood products. I have Blood Bath and while it's cool to have Pieces uncut, the transfer quality of all 4 movies were abysmal. Of course... what you do expect for $8
